My family spent last year working on making healthier food choices. Prior to making a few changes to my diet I was drinking coffee multiple times each day. It wasn’t until I started tracking my daily calories did I realize just how much creamer I was consuming. I was drinking hundreds of calories in creamer alone every single day. I completely cut coffee out of my diet and lost almost 20 pounds in just a couple of months. As I’m slowly reintroducing a cup of coffee each morning back into my normal routine I know how easily I could go back to adding high calorie creamers. With Nestle I’m able to use a small amount of creamer with less sugar and fat to stick to my diet goals with out losing that yummy creaminess in my coffee. As I’ve explored staying on track with my goals, I also discovered a few yummy healthier dining options to help me make better choices. I love to cook but don’t always have time with a busy schedule to prepare a full dinner for my family. Lean Cuisine meals have given me the opportunity to get healthier for the new year with a great money back guarantee!
Lean Cuisine has options for each meal including breakfast. I spend my weekdays working as a preschool teacher so breakfast is an important start to my morning. Keeping up with over 30 four and five year olds is so much easier when I don’t leave my house hungry! My husband and I both have different goals this year. While I’m focusing on less fat in my diet, he is trying to cut out sugar. We can both enjoy a cup of coffee with CoffeeMate Sugar Free and Fat Free French Vanilla creamers. Taking less than 3 minutes to prepare in the microwave, Lean Cuisine breakfast sandwiches are great to make sure we aren’t leaving to work with out breakfast.
Most days I’m home at lunchtime trying to put lunch together quickly before my daughter’s afternoon nap. Prior to making healthier choices, I would skip lunch and choose coffee. And of course, that included several tablespoons of wasted calories in creamer. I’ve learned over the past few months skipping lunch is not a good option for me because I end up more hungry (and grumpy) before dinner. Lean Cuisine wrap additions are quick to prepare and easy to add to a tortilla for a tasty meal. With protein and veggies, these are a much better option than coffee for lunch! Try replacing the tortilla with lettuce for variety.
Sometimes at the end of the day the very last thing I want to be doing is cooking for my family. With out quick meal options at home, many times it feels easier to just order a pizza. Not anymore. Our freezer will be fully stocked with fast healthier meals because this year is about making better choices and getting back on track. Lean Cuisine has a big selection of microwaveable meals to help you stick to your goals and avoid ordering pizza on busy days.
I am usually skeptical of quick meals because, in my past experiences, they don’t usually turn out as pretty as the picture on the box. My opinion changed after I prepared Lean Cuisine sesame chicken. The meal looked identical to the advertisement and smelled fantastic.
The creamy macaroni and cheese is definitely an option I would use for both lunches and dinner.
Three cheese & spinach stuffed pretzels are a great appetizer, snack, or meal.
I didn’t want to make the mistake of preparing a meal my husband didn’t care for and then he would forever avoid the boxes in our freezer. Instead of taking that risk I used several different meals to make dinner. I split up the servings in each box after they were prepared and we were able to taste a few different options during the same meal.
We ended up liking everything on our plates and will definitely reach for our freezer on busy days! Lean Cusine is currently offering a money back guarantee on all 10 of their entrees. Try any of the entrees and if you don’t feel great after 10 days, Lean Cuisine will refund the cost of the meals (up to $25 plus any sales tax). Purchase must be made between January 1 and February 14 and request must be made by February 28, 2014.
In addition to coffee creamer, I know my weakness is chocolate. I have a sweet tooth and find it challenging to avoid candy. The new Skinny Cow divine filled chocolates let me occasionally enjoy sweets at just 130 calories per serving. Those challenging days just got easier with the thought of chocolate while sticking to your goals!
With so many reasons already to let Nestle get you back on track this year, I definitely won’t pass up dinner with out a messy kitchen to clean!
