How are those New Year resolutions going? Have you already ditched your plans and fallen into the same rutt? I get it, I have made resolutions that went south before the New Year’s party was over. We can certainly hold high expectations of ourselves! This New Year, I decided to cover a few bases instead of making one big, unattainable, resolution. I guess I’ve learned, over the years, that I can accomplish more when I break down my plan into more bite-sized pieces.

One of those pieces, and maybe the most important, is my goal to be more balanced. As a busy husband, dad and business owner, I can sometimes get tunnel vision. I become so focused on one area of my life that I tend to neglect the other aspects and things get lopsided. Balance is my mantra for 2016 and I am starting the balance in the way I eat. STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen™ is part of my plan for more balance in the kitchen so I can achieve more balance in my life.

STOUFFER’S® FIT KITCHEN™

I know that I won’t be able to tackle any other pieces of my 2016 resolution plan if I don’t have the energy to accomplish everything. STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen offers me convenient, balanced meals with the right blend of vitamins,proteins and carbohydrates so I can be fueled up to create balance in other areas of my life. I like that I can pick up STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen™ at Walmart and that they come in really tasty flavors like Bourbon Steak,Oven Roasted Chicken,Monterey Chicken and Cilantro Lime Chicken, which I am going to pair with one of my favorite recipes –

Grab one of STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen meals at Walmart and pair it with this or another of my salad recipes. I think Avocado and Tangerine Salad with Spicy Vinaigrette goes great with the STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen Bourbon Steak, but the STOUFFER’S® Fit Kitchen™ options are all tasty and balanced, which is a perfect fit for my 2016 resolution plan!

    • You can use orange juice. I actually bought tangerines and got the juice from the fresh tangerines. Noble juice brand also carries tangerine juice.
