Starting from the beginning of the year I really have been working hard to work out and pay more attention to what I eat. Finding balance in my life. One of my problem times is right in the middle of the day when my husband is at work and kids are at school/napping. I find myself checking out the fridge or pantry for something to snack on.And if you have been around my blog for any time, you know I am all about making things easier for myself and my family. Prepping meals ahead of time is definitely one way I have made things easier.
I headed to my local Fred Meyer (You can also get it from Kroger) to grab the Rubbermaid® Balance™ Meal Kit. Right now you can find it on sale for a limited time from $19.99 to $14.99.I love this kit for many reasons- like the recipe book that comes with it that contains 35 recipes. I have already made a couple of different recipes from it!The Rubbermaid® Balance™ Meal Kits are healthy well-balanced meals made easy. I love that it takes the guess work out for me. What is not to love with a quick and easy, all in one solution? No need to measure food, the containers are labeled and it is easy and convenient to transport.

Now it is time to make a delicious meal! I know that like so many of you it is hard to put yourself first and make sure you are eating the right food for your body. But I am working hard on that. Finding balance can be hard but something finally clicked in my head that if I am not healthy, how can I keep up with my energetic kids?

I started with salmon, asparagus and sweet potatoes. Lightly brushed with olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper.

Added minced garlic

And sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.

Place in the oven for 20 minutes and when you take it out you have an amazing dinner. I made this for my husband and I and set the third serving aside for my lunch the next day.

I even made some couscous to go along with it. It was a perfectly balanced dinner that I felt great about eating.

  • Salmon (3 fillets)

  • asparagus (1 bunch)

  • sweet potatoes (2)

  • salt and pepper

  • minced garlic (5 cloves)

  • olive oil (1 tbsp)

  • Parmesan cheese (1/4 cup)Preheat oven to 400°Lay Salmon, asparagus and diced sweet potatoes out on a cookie sheet and mat. (pictured above is only about 1/2 of one sweet potato. I cooked the rest without cheese afterwards.)
    Lightly brush everything with olive oil
    Season with salt and pepper
    Add minced garlic
    Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese
    Bake for 20 minutes
    Serve immediately

I packed the rest away and it was perfect for the next day. Picking Summer up from preschool and just a short while later dropping Tyler off for kindergarten doesn't leave a lot of time for lunch so I'm glad I was able to get it ready ahead of time!
