Living a healthy lifestyle and making good food choices is something I take very seriously.
Exercising comes very easily to me. I feel so much happier and energized when I take the time out of my day to get a good sweat.

However, writing a lifestyle/fashion blog and being a photographer sometimes leaves little to no time for lunch/dinner preparation. There are days I simply forget to eat or I end up snacking on foods that don't necessarily fill me up or give me energy. In order to have the energy I need to lift or do a fun cardio activity I need healthy fuel!

That's where Lean Cuisine comes in. It's a healthy option for a quick lunch when my little guy is at preschool and I don't need to dedicate even more time in the kitchen. I love that Lean Cuisine has introduced Protein Packed, Gluten-Free, and Organic Ingredient Options. It makes shopping for my meal so much easier depending on my goals for the day. Some days I eat a diet full of carbohydrates to have the energy to do a lot of lifting. On rest days or days I work out a smaller muscle group I stick to more protein packed options and healthy fats.

I had a LEAN CUISINE lunch with friends and we each tasted and had a little bit of the following:

  • LEAN CUISINE® MARKETPLACE Vermont White Cheddar Mac & Cheese
  • LEAN CUISINE® MARKETPLACE Sweet Sriacha Braised Beef
  • LEAN CUISINE® MARKETPLACE Fiesta Grilled Chicken

Based on the photos above, you can probably tell that the LEAN CUISINE® MARKETPLACE Vermont White Cheddar Mac & Cheese holds a special place in my taste palette. So tasty and made with organic ingredients. The cheese was very creamy and the noodles were top notch quality.

I purchased the LEAN CUISINE® MARKETPLACE meals at Target. As you can see in the photo above, these meals are on sale for only $2 right now. Want to save even more money? There's a $1 off 5 coupon available now thru 1/30/16.

  1. It's so important to have a quick and easy lunch when life gets BUSY (which is all the time!) I'm loving these Lean Cuisines for lunches lately, too! I haven't tried the Mac and Cheese yet, though, I need to! ~ client
