Before I received these products for sampling, I was already a fan of the mac and cheese. I love that they use Cabot cheese, one of my favorites. The kids love the taste and it’s great for a quick side dish or dressed-up with added healthy ingredients. One of their favorite combos is the macaroni and cheese with organic beef hot dogs and steamed fresh broccoli. That’s a very kid-friendly meal. My kids aren’t little kids anymore, but they still love their mac and cheese bowls and takes all of 5 minutes to make.
I love the Good Food Made Simple steel cut oat varieties. Oats are simple to make, but the steel cut variety (which is my favorite) takes longer to cook. For days when I’m in a hurry, I can just pop one of these in the microwave and have a bowl of perfectly cooked oats. I was pleased that it didn’t turn out mushy, the texture is great.
Oats are one of my favorite post-workout carbohydrates. My post-workout meal is about half protein and half carbs, so these oats with a side of egg whites works out great. I also love them for a well-rounded breakfast. I add in some thawed frozen blueberries for phytonutrients, chia seeds and sliced almonds for healthy fats and scrambled eggs for my protein.
Good Food Made Simple also makes a variety of delicious burritos. They average around 18 grams of protein. These are a few of their tasty flavors…..
I loved the Root Beer BBQ Pulled Pork burrito. It was really flavorful and paired with an apple and a small Greek yogurt, made a filling lunch.
