MightyMeals: Meals that are Mom & Kid Approved
By: Christine Bean
Whether you’re a working mom, a stay-at-home mom, or somewhere in-between, we all share the same problem; there is never enough time in the day, and there are always hungry mouths to feed! I don’t know about your kids, but mine seem to be hungry 24/7, especially during quarantine. Truthfully, I love to cook, but between working part-time from home, attempting to keep two toddlers busy, and making sure the house doesn’t burn down, I am maxed-out most days and waving the white flag. MightyMeals to the rescue!
One thing I love most about MightyMeals is the ability to order bulk protein and sides via the A La Carte menu, which makes it easy for me to create quick and healthy meals on week nights. One of our favorite, go-to combinations is Bistro Steak, Green Beans, and Sweet Potatoes. The kids love it, and all I have to do is heat and plate. (But, let’s be honest, I have to literally hold my husband back from devouring the entire container of juicy steak, first!) My toddlers also love the bulk Southwestern Egg Bites, which make for an easy weekday breakfast with a side of fruit.
Being Italian, we eat A LOT of pasta. In fact, it’s both of my kids’ favorite food. So, I wasn’t surprised when they licked the container of Spaghetti and Meatballs clean and said it was “just like Nonna’s.” Little did they know, these turkey meatballs are totally healthy, packed with protein, and all I had to do was heat them up in the container. (Shh, don’t tell Nonna!) The Roast Beef Wrap is an exciting new option for us, anything handheld that we can take with us on a socially-distant picnic is a total win. I also love to bring along one of my favorite meals, Basil Pesto Chicken and Orzo, which is equally delicious eaten hot or cold. Oh, and did I mention that all of these dishes are delivered right to my door multiple times per week? You can’t beat that convenience.
Knowing that my kids are eating fresh, nutrient-rich foods, and loving every bite, gives me peace of mind as a busy mom. The fact that they are chef-prepared, locally sourced, and delivered to my door is an added bonus! I’m truly thankful to MightyMeals for taking one less thing off my plate and making meals that are mom and kid approved!
