Win A New Fridge In The LG Food Fight Giveaway

LG Door-in-Door Refrigerator

There are some items I don’t need to write down for my weekly trip to the mar­ket – milk, bread, cheese, eggs, and wine are always going to be in the cart. When it comes to snacks, hubby and the kids have their indi­vid­ual favorites that are start­ing to become rote as well. But know­ing what I’m going to buy at the store doesn’t keep the mommy guilt from creep­ing in every now and then – I’m a sucker for con­ve­nience too, but things that are quick and easy aren’t always the best for my family.

So in an effort to eat health­ier, serve bet­ter foods, and enjoy truly tasty delights, let’s get back to basics and think about the family-friendly foods that’ll sat­isfy every­one in the house. The fol­low­ing items can pull dou­ble duty as a main course and snack, and they can be easy enough to grab even when you’re late, run­ning out the door, and have zero time to rum­mage in the fridge:

  • Get fruity: It’s a no-brainer, but fresh fruit is so often over­looked. Along with mak­ing fruit one of the first snack options for your kids, imple­ment it in main courses and as dessert. It’s hard to com­pete with orange chicken, a green apple salad, or straw­ber­ries and whipped cream to end the meal.
  • Ver­sa­tile veg­gies: When you’re plan­ning your meals for the week, choose the veg­eta­bles that will get you the most mileage and which will work well either hot or cold. Broc­coli is del­ish in a stir-fry, but it’s also a great snack with some dip or cheese. Cucum­bers will freshen up any salad and left­over slices can serve as the stuff­ing for kid-sized fin­ger sandwiches.
  • Go grandiose: There’s noth­ing wrong with cook­ing a 10-pound turkey for your fam­ily of four. It’ll give you a great sit-down meal and serve as a healthy, deli­cious snack for the rest of the week. Easy turkey sand­wiches for lunch or turkey and cheese for snack time.

You’ll feel espe­cially sat­is­fied by your efforts to get your fam­ily to eat bet­ter when you adopt healthy snack­ing habits in your house­hold too. Put your applic­a­ble left­overs in portion-sized bag­gies and keep ‘em handy in the fridge. Feel like your refrig­er­a­tor is a black hole for any small serv­ings? It might be time to upgrade to a model that will give you the space you need with­out rel­e­gat­ing tasty left­overs to the back cor­ners of over­crowded shelves.
