Healthy Home Cooked Meal Ideas

How is the weather where you live? Currently, I am looking at some pretty healthy snow flurries outside my window! Ugh! That makes picking up the kids a nightmare because the pick up line will be 68 miles long by the time I get there because everyone is trying to sneak in early. By the time we get the kids home from school and have homework under control, I just do not have the energy or the time to make my family the kind of meal I would like them to have. I want my family to eat healthy but that is not always possible when you are always on the go like I am.


With the new McCormick Skillet Sauces, I can whip up a delicious and healthy meal. The sauces are made from the highest quality all natural spices and herbs and come in 7 varieties. With flavors like Fajita with Roasted Chili, Garlic & Lime Skillet Sauce, Sesame Chicken Stir-Fry Skillet Sauce or one of our favorites, the Sweet & Smoky Sloppy Joes Skillet Sauce. If you are also looking for a meal that fits into your budget, these yummy sauces are perfect for you. At just a few dollars per pouch, you can stock up on all o fyour favorite flavors and make your family happy every night of the week! In order to make our sloppy joes healthier, we made a few changes to the traditional recipe. Instead of using beef, we used ground turkey, we used sandwich thins instead of buns and instead of store bought potato salad, we make ours from scratch.

By using low fat mayo and less salt, we can cut calories as well as sodium, making this more heart healthy. To make one of my families favorite healthy home cooked meals, I just cooked up the turkey, added the McCormick Sweet & Smoky Sloppy Joes Skillet Sauce and let it simmer for just 15 minutes. I made the potato salad the night before, so it was ready to serve when the sloppy joes were done. In less than 30 minutes, I had a healthy home cooked meal for my family. Worried about left overs? Not with these amazing sandwiches! They went like hotcakes and the kids were asking for seconds! You can find the McCormick Skillet Sauces in the condiment/sauce aisle at your local grocery store.
