EPIC The Movie and a Healthy Meal Solution #MealsTogether

Having a pre-teen has been an amazing experience.  My baby is growing up so fast and as each day passes I find myself looking for ways for our family to enjoy each others company.  It used to be afternoon trips to the playground that gave us that special time together.  Now as he gets older we find ourselves enjoying family meals and a movie.  A monthly trip to the theater and a movie night are our go to good time.   I am thrilled that in just a few days AJ and I have a date to see EPIC the Movie, in theaters 5/24/13.  Epic is touted as a must see movie for older children and after seeing the trailer AJ and I have been anxiously awaiting its release.  EPIC is an environmental story of good vs. evil.  EPIC is also from the creators of ICE AGE and RIO {movies AJ and I have fallen in love with}.

Our family is beyond busy and that makes fitting in movie nights tricky.  We have decided that to spend more time together during the week we needed to plan ahead.  We headed to our Sam’s Club this past weekend for a batch of evening meal solutions and a few movie night must haves.  Meals that won’t take more than 30 minutes to prepare and an emphasis on healthy options.

My boys like most boys are picky eaters,  they do not like anything complicated.  Our main dish of choice, Tyson Chicken Nuggets with a side.  Now while chicken nuggets may not seem like a perfect choice, for our family it’s beyond perfect.  The white meat 100% all natural nuggets are tasty, simple to make and picky eater approved.  To round out a healthy meal we chose Del Monte green beans.

The 100% Natural Tyson Chicken Nuggets paired with the Del Monte Green Beans is an easy 15 minute meal solution that doesn’t sacrifice taste and keeps a balance dinner of vegetables and protein.  I paired the green beans with a quick rice pilaf.  My boys are rice lovers and it’s easy to mix in veggies and get them to keep the balance.  A side of bbq sauce and sweet tea to top off the meal.
