Today on Good Food Friday, I shared simple tips for healthy and easy holiday hosting.
Build-Your-Own oatmeal bar
A breakfast oatmeal bar is an easy option and I partnered with Quaker to share some ideas. Oats serve as a nutritious blank canvas and you can make them savory or sweet. Each variety of Quaker Oats is 100% whole grain, and ounce per ounce, provide similar amounts of fiber, vitamins and minerals. A recent breakfast survey conducted by Quaker across the US found that 80% of respondents have a special breakfast on Christmas and 25% of respondents from the south eat oatmeal several days a week.
A festive way to serve your produce
A produce tree platter makes a great appetizer option paired with delicious dips. I shared the NEW sweet and savory ORGANIC plant based dips by Fresh Cravings. They are also vegan, gluten free, free of preservatives and made with nut-based protein. You can find the organic at Publix and conventional at Walmart chilled in the produce section.
Low carb, high protein options when you are pressed for time
Real Good Foods products are a great option. All their products are low carb, gluten free, packed with protein and made with real ingredients. I shared their stuffed chicken, cauliflower crust pizza and cauliflower cheesy bread breakfast sandwiches. You can find them in the frozen section at Walmart, Publix, Harris Teeter and Kroger.
Easy meals that are ready to cook
Home chef is one of the largest meal kit delivery companies in the US. Each meal kit includes fresh ingredients in just the right amount you need to make your chef-designed recipes at home. They’re customizable so you can switch up proteins and choose meals with different levels of preparation and cook times including the oven ready line and heat and eat line that’s ready in less than 5 minutes.
