Sometimes making things for myself can get boring. So even though I want to eat better and take better care of myself, I find myself popping the kids fish sticks into the oven for my meals too. Especially on a day when all three kids are in school and I am trying to get everything done before they get home.
Lucky for me, and my waistline that I am still trying to whittle away, I discovered Lean Cuisine Asian Flavors at Sam’s a few months ago. And I do love the ease and convenience of popping one of these in the microwave instead of something less healthy for me. But even as much as I love them, I find that I still want a treat or something yummy to go along with my Lean Cuisine meal.
So, since I have eaten my entire 6 pack that I bought recently, I packed up the kids and headed out to Sam’s Club to see if I could find something fun to have with my Lean Cuisine!
Plus it is just fun to tool around Sam’s Club! Especially on sample weekends! And my kids like the pizza there. And it was lunch time.
See my entire shop and the final meal in my Google + Album below:
We ate first so that I did not spend my entire mortgage payment on food by being hungry and shopping and then headed straight to the frozen food section. I knew my Lean Cuisine Asian Flavor 6 packs were on the end cap so I snapped those up in no time! And then I strolled with the kids up and down the frozen food section looking for some other low calorie foods or dessert that I could have with my meals. Along the way, I found Lean Cuisine Italian Flavors! A 4 pack of Spaghetti and Meatballs and Parmesan Chicken! YES PLEASE! Oh my tummy grumbled!
As I left the frozen food aisle and headed to the ice cream sections – dangerous, I know – I spotted the perfect compliment to my Lean Cuisine meals! Skinny Cow Vanilla and Cookies and Cream Sandwiches! Mommy was a happy girl!
You know what else made mommy happy? The prices! Right now, at Sam’s Club, through February, Skinny Cow is only $8.98 (was 9.98), Lean Cuisine Italian Flavors 4-pk is down to $6.98 (was 7.98), and the Lean Cuisine Asian Flavors 6-pk is only $9.98 (was 11.25)! I’ll take savings any time of the day!
I grabbed a few other things I needed, milk, eggs and some things for the kids, and headed to check out. Only to find out that the credit card and debit card systems were down nationwide! What? So I rolled my full cart and my kids to the ATM machine and waited patiently for it to give me some money!
We finally checked out and headed home. We stopped at the local grocery store and grabbed some sweet potatoes because I still wanted to make a side for my Lean Cuisine meal!
I so wanted to make a recipe I found on the Eating Well website, Soy-Glazed Sweet Potaotes to have as a side with my Lean Cuisine meals. It looked so easy and healthy!
Later that evening I was hungry. Not wanting to fall victim to the kids meals again, I pulled out my sweet potatoes and got to cutting them up! I followed the directions and ended up with some delicious sweet potatoes! They were sweet and yummy and perfectly complimented my Sesame Chicken and noodles. And then, when my plate was clean, I relished in the creamy, smooth flavor of my Skinny Cow Cookies and Cream Sandwiches!
Oh mommy was happy. Especially since the entire meal was a ton healthier and more fulfilling than some heated up fish sticks!
If you are looking to stay healthier this year, head over to Sam’s and get your Lean Cuisine meals, your Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches and then make some fun sides to go with it! I bet you’ll be as happy as I am with these #FrozenFavorites!
