As I mentioned last week, life has been a little crazy these past couple of weeks. Work has been busy, the bathroom renovation took twice as long as expected, and I’ve had a lingering cold that I just can’t seem to shake. When life is like this, there are three things I do to keep up:
- Prioritize the things that really need to get done and put everything else on the back burner.
- Utilize my treadmill desk so I can get in a workout and catch up on emails.
- Rely on easy, simple meal options rather than doing a lot of cooking.
So lately, I haven’t really been doing a lot of cooking and I’ve been relying on easier meal options. While I love picking up takeout, it’s not always the healthier or cheapest option, so I do like having some stand-by options in the freezer.
MorningStar Farms has been a favorite of mine since college. Their black bean burgers always have a space in my freezer and the burgers actually make great tacos! So when I heard about the new MorningStar Farms® Veggie Bowls I wanted to give them a try! I actually had to go to a few stores before I was able to find but I ended up finding both the Chik’n Pot Pie and the Italian Sausage Bake here in Richmond at Walmart. They have a few other kinds as well if you’re in different parts of the country.
It’s nestled there in the freezer aisle right next to my beloved black bean burgers and all the other vegetarian foods! I like that these meals have a lot of protein without a ton of calories. The Italian Sausage Bake was our favorite which clocks in at 240 calories and 14g of protein.
I was actually surprised at how many vegetables were in there! These veggie bowls are definitely a super convenient option whether you’re a vegetarian or just looking to eat less meat. It’s always nice to have something you can grab when life gets busy and have ready to go in a few minutes.
With all the holiday craziness coming up, I’m making sure my freezer is stocked with options for the busy days ahead!
