Astrid's Healthy Choices

Okay, so on this journey to eat more healthy and get into better cardiovascular health, I've stumbled on a few favorites!  I really love quick things to fix.  As the queen of the drive-thru my life has always!  Given that, this list is full of really quick side dishes!

These are my top 5:

Number 5:  Lightly Sauced Broccoli with cheese sauce by Birdseye (website link)
-When they say lightly sauced I was really skeptical.  I mean what's broccoli without loads of cheese?  This was really awesome and for a four to five minute microwave wait it was super really awesome.  I really liked it and stocked my freezer with more!  They also have a carrot, cauliflower and broccoli variety, but I'm not that into maybe I'll give it a try!

Number 4: Lightly Sauced Tuscan Vegetables with Marinara Sauce by Birdseye (website link)

-A melody of squashes, red bell peppers and carrots with a marinara sauce.  This was a really good blend and I tend to like my veggies a little on the mushy side, but if you cook them less they are less mushy.  For a five minute microwave you can't beat it!  This went really good with chicken, baked with Italian seasoning...mmmmm!  My mouth is watering!

Number 3: Allen's tomatoes and okra! (website link)

-I love tomatoes and okra, but I especially love Allen's.  Sure there are other varieties but this is my fav!

Number 2: Jasmine Rice

-There are many kinds of rice and I never appreciated the differences between them until I ate some steamed Jasmine Rice.  It has a better flavor and I love to eat it with just chicken.

Number 1: Lightly Sauced Roasted Red Potatoes & Green Beans with Parmesan Olive Oil Sauce by Birdseye

-I absolutely love this one!   I could eat it with almost every meal.  And it still has that five minute microwave time!

  1. Yummy! I love the sauced broccoli!

    I think the most shocking 'good for losing weight food' that I learned about when my mom started weight watchers was beef jerky. What a yummy way to spend some WW points. lol

    Keep up the great work!
