According to Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien, “Eating right shouldn’t feel like a constant, daily battle. You’d be surprised to know that by making simple changes to your diet, like using 98 percent fat free Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken, you can achieve the results you want and turn good daily practices into great lifetime habits.” A few tips from Lillien to reach your end goal include:
- Identify Small Changes You Can Stick To: When making changes to your daily habits, keep them small, yet effective. Take walks on your lunch break, and have a side salad with your fast-food order instead of fries. Once you master that, push yourself a little further... Maybe go jogging, and have a grilled chicken sandwich instead of that burger!
- Prepare for Those Time-Crunched Moments: Most of us are short on time, so having items in the kitchen that are smart choices but quick-to-make can save your waistline. Tyson® Grilled & Ready ® products are fully cooked with a delicious grilled taste, so you don’t have to stress about the prep work – it’s already been done for you. Just add a serving of high-fiber pasta and lots of veggies or a salad, and you've got a wholesome, guilt-free meal in no time.
- Swap Out Regular Staples for More Wholesome Versions: Sandwiches are fast, but ordinary bread can be high in calories (and a little boring!). Look for high-fiber pitas, 100-calorie flat sandwich buns, and even light English muffins. Or skip the carbs altogether and use giant lettuce leaves -- quick and easy!
Tyson Foods is also helping women overcome common food struggles by sharing the stories of three real women to motivate others to join the program. These women all represent common issues associated with different food personalities: time-crunched, willpower-challenged and the all-around food lover. To inspire other women to commit to healthful changes, these women will track their progress online through the program’s Facebook page so women across the country can take the journey together.
“We want to show women that all it takes to make health-conscious changes in the New Year is a few small adjustments to their diets to create a larger, long-term impact,” says Alicia Mosley, Senior Brand Manager for Tyson Foods. “Tyson® Grilled & Ready® products are available both in the refrigerated and frozen sections of your grocery store. They are the easy and nutritious ways to prepare meals at home without sacrificing quality or taste to maintain a well-balanced lifestyle.”
Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken is 98 percent fat free and has no preservatives, making it a delicious and smart way to make eating right part of your routine. There are also Grilled & Ready® beef products available. Tyson® Grilled & Ready® products are conveniently packaged, so women can use what they need to create delicious and smart meals in minutes, and the rest stays fresh for the next quick-fix dish. The line includes Chicken Breast Strips, Chicken Breast Fillets, Fajita Chicken Breast Strips, Honey BBQ Seasoned Chicken Breast Strips, Chicken Breast Chunks, Oven Roasted Diced Chicken Breast, Southwestern Chicken Breast Strips and Seasoned Steak Strips.
