Simple Dinner Solutions For Working Moms! #BalanceYourPlate @Stouffers #Ad


*This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Stouffer’s and WeAllGrow Latina. All opinions are 100% my own.

    Everyone wants to eat better, but sometimes we need a little inspiration and simple solutions to choose from to make it a reality more often.  This is especially true for working moms like me who love preparing delicious meals for their families but just don’t have the time to spend hours in the kitchen preparing elaborate recipes.  Recently, I have learned about the Balance Your Plate program which is designed to educate everyone about ways to put together nutritious meals that incorporate both frozen and fresh foods.  This is such a big help when it comes to finding that balance between our busy lives and making sure we are eating healthy.


    Research shows that Americans are only meeting MyPlate recommendations for vegetables, fruit, proteins, dairy and grains seven days out of 365.  This is of great concern to me because I have two active sons and I am constantly worried about whether they are eating a balanced diet.  My older son plays basketball competitively so it is really important that he eat properly so he could have the energy he requires to play sports.  Stouffer’s knows that moms don’t always have the time to cook for hours but still want nutritious meals for their families.


    Stouffer’s Lasagna with Meat and Sauce now boasts fewer ingredients but you can still expect the delicious flavors that you have come to expect from Stouffer’s for years.  It’s the perfect combination of simple ingredients, great taste, and most value for your money.


    As a busy mom, I love that Stouffer’s lasagna comes in family size so all I have to do is pop it right into the oven and pair it with my family’s favorite sides such as green beans.  I never have to worry again that my family is not getting a balanced meal, now that is what you call having it all!


Let’s Discuss:  How do you balance a busy schedule and make sure your family enjoys wholesome meals at the same time?

  1. I’m a big fan of Stouffer’s meals. They’re fast, easy and delicious. I’ve never been a great cook, and these meals let me prepare great meals without a ton of fuss.

  2. Neely (@Neelykins) says

    I have always loved their lasagna. I used to make it all the time when I lived alone. So great!

  3. My children love lasagna and stouffers is our choice of brand. Definitely an easy solution for busy parents.

  4. This looks fast and easy! I could really use more of that in my life.

  5. I’m so busy all the time, so I really appreciate quick and easy options. I just wish so many of them didn’t have sugar in them.

  6. Stouffer’s is a very reputable brand and I love the concept behind this campaign. Realistically, my family does not dine on homemade meals 3x a day/7 days a week. That’s the general hope, but sometimes life gets in the way and I depend on brands like this!

  7. I remember having a hard time managing work life and home life, and that was just with one kid. Now I have two kids but no longer working outside of the house. Still, meal planning is a great way to make it work.

  8. My diet has been so unbalanced lately it is embarrassing. I didn’t know that Stouffer’s had simplified their recipes–and yes I do love lasagna! Think it is time for me to re-visit the frozen meals aisles and look for the new Stouffer’s.

  9. Stouffer’s has the best flavor of frozen food, don’t they??!! I like several of their options, including the lasagna!

  10. Elizabeth O says

    I could eat Lasagna every day and never get bored. It is such a hearty meal and I would serve it daily.

  11. I always keep Stouffer’s in my freezer. I love cooking from scratch, but there isn’t always time. Plus, they taste so amazing everyone is thrilled when it’s lasagna night.
