I’ve mentioned before that I feel my best when I eat a plant-rich diet.
I always try to do Meatless Monday and usually make a few extra days of the week meatless as well.
When I first started doing this, it seemed complicated and overwhelming.
Over the years I have learned that it is so easy to choose plant-based foods without giving up taste, convenience, or quality.
This week I made these Southwestern Veggie Wraps for the family, and they were a huge hit. It was the perfect meal because we had been running around all day and I didn’t have time for a lot of fuss.
Luckily I had Birds Eye® Steamfresh® Southwest Style Protein Blends, Gardein™ Seven Grain Crispy Tenders, and Earth Balance® Original Buttery Spread on hand.
With just a few additional ingredients, I had dinner on the table in a flash!
I am all about easy dinners, and this one was so simple!
If you have been around here long, you know that the whole family has been a fan of Gardein vegan products for years. In addition to the Seven Grain Crispy Tenders, they have a full line of plant-based products that you will love. It may sound crazy, but to me, they taste better than the real thing.
Gardein products are made from ingredients like non-GMO soy, wheat and pea proteins, vegetables and ancient grains (quinoa, amaranth, millet and kamut®) to name a few. They are free of cholesterol, trans and saturated fats.
I love Birds Eye Steamfresh Protein Blends. They offer up 10 grams of plant-based protein per serving. It is the perfect way to get nutrition on the table in no-time!
Another great option is Birds Eye Steamfresh Superfood Blends, which are ready-to-go dishes made from nutrient-rich veggies, grains, and fruits. They have no artificial flavors and are an excellent source of antioxidants.
Earth Balance Buttery Spreads are the perfect thing to keep in your dairy-free arsenal. Not only is it vegan, lactose-free, and gluten-free, it also has 0g trans-fat, no MSG, and is non-GMO. An excellent source of ALA Omega 3, this creamy spreadable texture and rich butter taste are perfect to spread on toast.
