Everyone associates Fall with back to school. I love Summer with the kids, but I also enjoy being back on a routine when school starts. Time does get a little tighter with new homework schedules and Fall sports practices. I love being a soccer mom, but those mid-week practices can leave us all a bit crazy. I’m always on the hunt for fast and easy meal solutions that the family will devour. If I find a few products to keep stocked in my pantry to save me time and energy on rushed practice nights, sign me up! This month, Babble Boxx sent me a few of my favorite go to products to lighten up my weekday meal prep, and some new ones to try. Check out the awesome assortment below that was delivered right to my door.
One of my kids favorite ways to save time making dinner is to serve breakfast. Who doesn’t love chocolate chip pancakes? Sadly, my husbands a more chicken and side dish kind of guy. With a little help from Simply Beyond Spray-On Herbs®, I can quickly add amazing depth of flavor to boneless, skinless chicken breasts. The innovative, non-aerosol can contains pure, concentrated, herb essential oil, mixed with Non-GMO organic canola oil. Simply Beyond® Spray-on Herbs is a great option to be able to keep shelf-stable, fresh, organic herb flavor in my pantry all year round. You can use Spray-On Herbs® on a variety of grilled meats, seafood, vegetables, pizza, or popcorn. Basically anything you want to kick up a notch in flavor. The possibilities are endless.
Once the chicken is prepped and cooking, I can tackle adding some easy side dishes. Fastest go to in my fridge is bagged salad. It’s fresh, washes and ready to toss in bowls. I add grape tomatoes and for a big burst of flavor, I spray on some Simply Beyond® Organic Fruit Vinegar. Simply Beyond® organic fruit vinegars are crafted in small batches, by cooking down organic grape juice until syrupy. Then it’s mixed with organic red wine vinegar and organic pomegranate or cranberry juice for a delicious balance of sugar and acidity that complements a fresh salad perfectly.

By the time Friday rolls around, I’m usually exhausted, and lo and behold my family still expects something for dinner. Shocker. I know. Thankfully it doesn’t take much energy to whip up some chicken fried rice. Bonus when there are leftovers that I can easily pack in a Rubbermaid TakeAlongs® container take to soccer when Jed’s games are right around lunch time. No one needs to get Hangry at soccer when mom’s tote has snacks and lunch.
I love the convenience of packing my own snacks in Rubbermaid TakeAlongs®. They are more economical than prepackaged snacks, and of course reusable. And if there are snacks for after soccer, we need to make sure we clean up a bit before eating. I always have a box of Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes in my bag. They are perfect for removing dirt off little hands and killing 99.99% of germs without using soap and water. Wet Ones® wipes are hypoallergenic and gentle on skin so I don’t worry about sharing them with Jed’s teammates to help them clean up too.
Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes are perfect for me to tuck into my purse, suitcase, or computer bag when I’m
escaping mom life traveling for work. Hotel rooms may have gorgeous views, but we all know they are filled with germs. It certainly can’t hurt to grab a few Wet Ones® to wipe down the desk area and bathroom to kill as many germs as possible.
What’s your favorite easy meal solution when you’re short on time?
