It’s January – a new year, which means new resolutions! After two weeks of indulging in nothing but fried meat and potatoes in Columbia, my flabby body is ready to get lean and mean again. Although I'll leave the cooking tips for the pros, here are some of the (less culinary intensive) healthy treats I will be eating get back into fighting shape again.
Contessa World Cuisine Sesame Chicken Frozen Meal
380 calories / serving (2 servings per bag)
Contessa World Cuisine’s Sesame Chicken frozen entrée for the days where I want to eat quick but healthy. This entree is made with quality ingredients but much simpler to prepare (just toss in a pan for ten minutes). Furthermore, the sesame chicken is not only delicious but also doesn't break the calorie bank (the sauce – which contains a bulk of the calories – is individually packed so you can control the level of intake).
Kettle Brand Tias! Tortilla Chips
150 calories / 1oz serving
Tias! Tortilla Chips in Zesty Ranch. Made with organic corn finished with a sassy blend of buttermilk, green onion and garlic, these chips are packed with flavor so they’re mouth-ready straight out of the bag—no extra (caloric) dipping sauce required!
Koru Yoghurt – Strawberry and Goji
190 calories / 5.3 oz container
Koru’s creamery style yoghurt is made with wholesome, real ingredients – including real milk, cream and fruit. It has a light and silky texture that feels a lot more decadent and satisfying than the 190 calories per cup. My personal favorite is the cool and creative Strawberry and Goji yoghurt, but the other four flavors are just as fun and festive.
Quaker Real Medley’s Oatmeal - Summer Berry Oatmeal+
250 calories / container
Quaker Oats’ Real Medleys Summer Berry Oatmeal+ deserves the Michelin star for all oatmeals. I first discovered this gourmet breakfast item at the Philly Food and Nutrition Conference last fall and have been addicted ever since. Plus, the Real Medleys comes in a convenient, individual serving size package, so all I need to do is add water, microwave and enjoy in my morning class (to the envy of all my classmates, obviously)!
