The post is brought to you by The Motherhood and DiGiorno Pizzeria!
With the holidays quickly approaching, my days are going to get hectic. I know yours probably will be, too. I am going to need some quick and easy dinner ideas to keep me and my family fed. I like being able to have a balanced meal with DiGiorno Pizzeria! Yes, you can have a balanced meal even if it includes pizza.
Frozen foods are a great way to make a quick and nutritious meal. You can include all kinds of different healthy options with your frozen main dish. Nestlé USA has a new Balance Your Plate campaign to help build nutritious, delicious, and convenient meals that meet the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. I love this because you can get so many great ideas for quick and easy dinners.
I was able to take some of their healthy dinner ideas to create a nutritious meal for my family. I love pizza so I decided to try the DiGiorno Pizzeria! Thin Pizzas. They come in four great flavors:
- Primo Pepperoni
- Supreme Speciale
- Spinach & Mushroom
I tried the Primo Pepperoni. It just looked so good on the box and it did not disappoint! I am being completely honest when I say that it is probably the best frozen pizza I have had. It was really crispy and the flavor was excellent. I will be buying this again for sure!
I made my plate balanced by making a spinach salad on the side. I had some cheese, croutons, dried cranberries, and Italian dressing. I love using spinach in my salads instead of lettuce because it has so much more nutrition. I also had some diced peaches and a glass of milk to get my vitamin D. I really need to drink more milk!
This meal was delicious, healthy, and so easy to make. That is really important when I don’t have a lot oftime and a toddler who is very hungry. I highly recommend checking out the Balance Your Plate site and checking out all of the healthy ideas they have. You can stay in touch with DiGiorno on Facebook and Twitter to be kept up to date on their latest products and promotions.
