As a mom, I often feel like there isn't enough time in the day. It's hard to balance work and life, especially with young children. It's important to prioritize. Personally, spending time with my family is one of my top priorities. Another priority is to make sure that they have good nutrition. We sit down for dinner every evening because it is a special time for us to talk about our day. It's also important because I need to make sure that my family has a nutritious meal. In today's post, I'll share a few quick and easy ideas for nutritious dinners so that you have more time to spend with your family.
1. Boston Market Rotisserie Chicken in New Flavors
My family is very active, so we need low-fat meals that are packed with protein and veggies. My husband runs six to nine miles each day. My six year old runs three miles each day and plays hard at gym class and recess. Boston Market Rotisserie Chickens are perfect for family dinners because they provide protein. They also come with plenty of side dishes that contain carbs and veggies. I literally picked up dinner in 5 minutes the other night. You can go into the restaurant or stop by the drive-thru because they are ready for busy moms! I really like that they offer wholesome dinner options that are quick, but not fried. Let me share a couple of new rotisserie flavors that our family enjoyed this week.
The first meal below features the new (limited time) Sweet & Spicy Apple Rotisserie Chicken. This new menu item includes slow-braised smoky apples, apple cider vinegar, sweet brown sugar, onions and a hint of roasted jalapeños. My family loves to pair this menu item with fresh veggies and cornbread. My son will also tell you that the macaroni and cheese is one of his favorites.
The next meal is a Boston Market favorite that is here for a limited time - Parmesan Tuscan Rotisserie Chicken. The seasoning on this is fantastic. We pair it with green beans, mashed potatoes, gravy, and cornbread.
Boston Market is perfect for busy moms that are in a rush, but want "real" food for their family to sit down and enjoy together.
2. Rotisserie Quesadillas
If you order a rotisserie and have leftovers, another quick and easy dinner idea is to make rotisserie quesadillas. Simply heat up leftover pieces of rotisserie and add them to a warm tortilla with cheese. This is my six-year old's favorite meal.
3. Turkey sandwiches
We rarely serve lunch meat at our house because we are worried about added hormones or steroids and antibiotics. However, we have hearty sandwiches on busy nights by using meats from Boston Market. I buy the turkey breast by the pound or buy a rotisserie chicken. For instance, the rotisserie chicken at Boston Market is:
· US-farm raised
· Without added hormones or steroids
· 100 percent antibiotic-free*
· MSG free
· Gluten freeThis is a quick and healthy dinner idea since it is as easy as putting the supplies on the counter and letting each family member make their own sandwich. We typically combine whole grain bread, cranberry sauce, and rotisserie chicken for a filling sandwich. Check out the Boston Market rotisserie guarantee here.
It's not easy to keep up with the demands of being a mom. Hopefully, our tips above will save you time with quick and easy dinner ideas that your family enjoys.
