Life is hectic, and as a teacher, my lunch usually equates to what I can scarf down in 10-15 minutes. Usually, it consists of a sweet potato and humus/pita bread, a protein shake and a piece of fruit, or oatmeal with Greek yogurt. Basically, anything semi-healthy that requires minimal effort on my part. I’ve been known to grab fistfuls of sugar snap peas, and eat them as snacks! <3 sugar snap peas! I do allow myself to pop in a frozen meal once a week, which I always look forward to with giddy glee! Warm, inviting, and again, minimal effort on my part. :P
Over the past two weeks, I’ve had the opportunity to sample Weight Watchers Smart Ones meals, courtesy of Women’s Health and my position as a 2013 Women’s Health Action Hero. My picks, Lemon Herb Chicken Piccata and Creamy Pasta Ramona with Spinach. The Creamy Pasta truly lived up to its name, creamy and dreamy. You would think it would be chalkful of calories but at 230 calories and less fat than eating out, this meal will keep you satisfied and full longer! Perfect for pasta lovers that enjoy a sinful sauce!
The Lemon Herb Chicken was my fav with its generous dose of mixed spring veges and playfully, light sauce. At 250 calories, this tangy little number is sure to please!
