I am an official ambassador for Chicken of the Sea. Chicken of the Sea provided me with EZ-Open cans for the purpose of this post, as well as compensation for my time. As always, all opinions expressed in this post are mine.
Why I Pack Lunches and Skip the Drive-Thru (most of the time)
Right now my family is in a season of being busy with activities. Last night my kids ate a cold lunch that I packed for them in the car for dinner. Is this my favorite? Absolutely not. I am a big proponent of dinner time around the table with family. However, since my kids have started getting involved in activities we have more meals on-the-go. I don’t like to do fast food very often and like to save our eating out experiences for family time as much as possible.
It’s More Economical – Have you ever figured out the cost of each item that you pack in a lunch box? It’s way cheaper than a $5 kids meal at most fast food restaurants, and much healthier!
It’s Faster –It may have seemed easier last night to just go through a drive-thru with my kids, but quite honestly that takes almost as much time as it does for me to quickly pack them a lunch by the time I wait in line and we actually get our food.
It’s Healthier – I pack myself a lunch often too, and most of the time it’s more for the health benefits and not being tempted with fast food options. I like to think I’d always choose a healthy option, but sometimes my taste buds get the best of me and I make poor choices when I’m overly hungry and not prepared.
Convenient Protein Option
Have you seen the new Chicken of the Sea EZ-open product line? Now you can take your favorite can of Chicken of the Sea tuna or salmon anywhere. I love that they’re making it even easier to find a healthy and convenient protein option on-the-go! It’s convenient and saves time and money!
Personally, I would actually throw a can of this in a lunch for me and drain the juice and eat it straight out of the can. For my kids I may mix a little mayo or miracle whip with the protein and make them a roll-up and add some cheese or put it on their favorite bread and add some cheese! Mine would even prefer it toasted with the cheese melted!
If you’re thinking you don’t want to eat straight out of the can, you can whip up some recipes using the meat from the EZ-open cans! This saves cooking time and cleanup of the protein portion of your recipe which is also great for busy families!
Chicken of the Sea Recipes
I found some great Chicken of the Sea recipes I’m going to try with my Pink Salmon. I think the Southwestern Frittata and the Salmon Stack sound so delicious! You’ll have to look to see what sounds good to you!
Chicken of the Sea Varieties
So if you’re a Seafood lover, you can find the new EZ-open cans in 3 varieties: Solid White Albacore in Water, Solid White Albacore in Oil, Chunk Light Tuna and Skinless & Boneless Pink Salmon.
