Ad: Chicken & Sweet Potato Pitas with Honey Cilantro Lime Dressing #JustAddTyson

January has nearly come and gone and I haven’t lost a pound! I’m not too discouraged though because I have big plans for weight loss and healthy eating this year. Just because I didn’t hit the new year running doesn’t mean it’s too late to start changing habits. Anytime is the best time to eat healthier and be more active, right?

Even if weight loss isn’t a goal for you, eating healthier could be. One of my worst eating habits that has gotten me into the mess I’m in is eating out for lunch. Lunchtime is the most challenging meal for me and I think I know why. I don’t have nearly enough go-to lunch items/recipes that are quick and easy and taste good. That is going to change!

I’m not big on lunchmeats that don’t come from the deli, and I’m terrible about thawing and cooking meat for lunch. I like to have some protein at lunch so I am left with few options. Problem solved with Tyson Grilled & Ready products! These are seriously a lifesaver for me for any meal really, when I don’t have time or have forgotten to pull meat out of the freezer. I usually pick mine up at Walmart and you can purchase them as whole chicken breasts, slices or chunks.

You don’t even have to cut your meat up for your salads, sandwiches, or whatever you may be making, because Tyson has already done it for you! The meat is already cooked so you just need to heat it up.

Now to figure out just how I’m going to incorporate Tyson Grilled & Ready products into my menu. Like I said, more healthy recipes that don’t take a lot of time, is a goal of mine. So, my mom and I came up with Chicken & Sweet Potato Pitas. I love these not only because they taste great, but because they are different, and between the protein from the chicken, and nutrients you get from sweet potatoes, I feel great eating them!

You can whip up any sauce that you think would pair well with the chicken and sweet potatoes but I went with a Cilantro Lime Dressing. It truly was beyond delicious. You know, one of those meals where you take your first bite and make that little moaning noise in the back of your throat because it’s so tasty! Yum!
