Solutions For Homemade Meals Made With Ease
(NAPSA) - Today's multitasking lifestyle has lead to an evolution of how we think of "cooking from scratch." While 96 percent of respondents to a recent national survey conducted by Greenfield Online believe that a meal cooked entirely from scratch at home is healthy, nearly a third of employed survey respondents report never having the time to do so. However, 90 percent of Americans are in agreement that a meal prepared using a mix of fresh and refrigerated foods is also healthy.
Tina Wesson, a busy mother of two who juggles her roles as winner of Survivor: the Australian Outback and health care professional, uses convenient products from the grocery store to help create delicious meals she can feel good about, with ease.
Tyson(r) refrigerated fully cooked chicken and steak strips, for example, are convenient ingredients to have in the refrigerator-they make it easy to prepare delicious meals with less effort.
"I've survived some pretty tough stuff, but one of my biggest challenges is fitting mealtime into the broader chaos of my family's routine," notes Wesson. "It's important to me to create wholesome meals I can feel good about."
To power up your next family mealtime, Wesson recommends meals such as Fiesta Chicken Salad and Simple Steak Sandwiches.
