With all the holiday baking this season, it can get tricky sticking to a balanced meal plan. Which is why we were thrilled to accept Eat Smart Gourmet Salad & Stir Fry Kits.
Many of the kits are made with delicious and sophisticated combinations of ingredients like kale, green cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, chicory, and/or quinoa and toppings like roasted pumpkin seeds, almonds or dried cranberries.
The salads were delicious. My family and I especially enjoyed the Sweet Kale Salad, speckled with dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds and a delicious creamy dressing. The salads all come bagged and ready to serve. They also make for a perfect and satisfying lunch during the day so you can keep on track even during the holidays.
I was most excited to try the Stir Fry Kits though, particularly the Shanghai Blend Stir Fry Kit – which contains Brussels sprouts, bok choy, kale, snow peas and carrots, as well as a packet of hoisin sauce.
I sauteed ginger, garlic and half a red onion in a pan first before tossing in the Shanghai Blend Stir Fry Kit and then rice. Eat Smart has made dinner really easy for me this week with their fresh and selective vegetable kits that leave me feeling satisfied and keep me on track.
So if you are looking for ways to eat healthy this holiday season and need something fast, turn to Eat Smart.
