Back to school is a change in routine for the whole family. Say goodbye to lazy summer days, and hello to early rising and busy schedules. As everyone is establishing their new routine, it’s a great idea to consider a few meal planning options for lunch and dinner. To help, I’m giving away a free weekly meal planner printable.
One suggestion I recommend is cooking a larger meal, then freezing the leftovers for easy grab-and-go lunches. Another option for busy nights is healthy meals from Healthy Choice. They just expanded their Healthy Choice Simply Café Steamers line to include four dishes made with USDA-certified organic ingredients. Keep reading to snag a FREE Weekly Meal Planner Printable!
Thank you to Healthy Choice for sponsoring this post & sending me these Cafe Steamers to enjoy w/my family.
Healthy Meals for Back to School
Let’s face it – most nights kids rule the dinner menu. While they are still establishing their palette it can limit dinner options. So while you prep their favorite bowl of mac n cheese, you can pop one of these Healthy Choice Simply Café Steamers in the microwave and have a fresh dinner in minutes. These four new recipes are made with Non-GMO ingredients and nothing artificial, plus they are all 270 calories or less! Add a side of fruit or glass of milk and you have yourself one healthy meal.

Speaking of meal prep – grab this fun FREE Weekly Meal Planner Printable I created! It includes a weekly calendar, grocery list, and recipe pages. Just click the picture below to print the PDF.
Tip: Print the Weekly Meal Planner and some extra Recipe Pages. Laminate each page and hole punch, then add to a binder. That way you can easily use the same pages over and over with a dry erase marker.
Healthy Choice’s new flavors include Three Cheese Tortellini made with organic cheese and spinach, Unwrapped Burrito Bowl made with organic black and pinto beans, fire-roasted corn, red bell pepper, and scallions with organic whole grain brown rice, Creamy Spinach & Tomato Linguini made with organic spinach and tomatoes, and Sweet & Spicy Asian-Style Noodle Bowl made with Udon noodles, organic edamame and carrots, celery, red bell pepper, and scallions.
Hubby and I have already sampled the Three Cheese Tortellini and Unwrapped Burrito Bowl – both were fantastic! Cooking the new dishes is just like the other Healthy Choice Steamers. They come in a two-piece tray that allows for the meal to be perfectly steamed in the microwave. It’s a freshness you can see and taste!
Plus you can’t beat the price at just $3.29. I don’t think fast food has a chance with these delicious organic ingredient meals. Find Healthy Choice Steamers in the freezer aisle of your local grocery store today!
