This time of year is just busy. I wake up at 4:30 and am off for a morning run. And from there on out the rest of the day is spent at work, running kids around, homework, and grading papers late into the evening. Dinner during the school year is simple and easy. Simple, healthy comfort foods are important to our family.
With some days being hot and others being cooler, fall can never seem to make up its mind. Simple comfort foods like salads are easy to prep before heading off to work. After arriving home, I take out whatever meat is in the crockpot and add it to the salad.
Our family enjoys Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken in our salads. It’s antibiotic free, no hormones or steroids added, and American Humane Certified. On top of that, it’s frown locally here on the West Coast. Eating healthy is important to our family and we know it’s important to yours too. Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken is a product that you can feel good about eating and feeding your family. It’s also the perfect foundation for your New Comfort Food meals.
Over the years I’ve changed the way that I make meals. When I was first married I couldn’t cook...so most dinners were eaten out. I also worked long hours at the hospital so by the time I got home, most nights, takeout was the norm. As we added more kids and life got busier and more expensive eating in became more important to us. And eating healthy, budget friendly foods has become a normal part of our family.
We often eat slow cooker meals, salads, and simple casseroles that can be frozen or made fresh. Most of our meals take very little prep time and are kid friendly.
