During the holidays I think we are all struggling to get healthy meals on the table as we run from errand to errand and holiday pageant, to holiday music production, etc…I know I am. An easy solution is to buy some pre-made meal items and “healthy” them up a bit.
A tried and true brand is Amy’s Kitchen. There are so many of their products that I really like (Their black bean enchiladas are awesome). My meat-loving boys also love their Vegan Chili, which is saying a lot.
The other day I made a pot of Amy’s vegan chili in 5 minutes flat and embellished it in an attempt to bring the total sodium level down. I warmed all of the following in a pot and that served as dinner:
- 2 cans Amy’s Vegan Chili
- 1 can (14.5 oz.) Miur Glenn Diced Tomatoes (no salt added)
- 1 can sodium-free kidney beans
I served the chili with a choice of either tortilla chips or sliced bell peppers (my choice) and Tapatio sauce on the side. The chili pictured above was also served atop polenta.
What are your favorite FAST meals this time of year? Any tricks to share?
