Nourish Bowls: The Healthy On-The-Go Meal from Mann’s Fresh

As beings that are always on the go, it can get quite difficult to eat a healthy, well-balanced meal. Be it for breakfast (for those of us who eat breakfast), lunch or dinner. While we try and at times have the best intentions to live a better life, it never lasts. This may happen for many reasons, we fall back into our old routine because it’s what we’re used to; the new “lifestyle change” doesn’t satisfy us, or maybe we end up being unsatisfied. We’ve all tried to implement healthy choices but many times, we just don’t enjoy them. But what if we did? We were recently introduced to the latest healthy and delicious meal from Mann’s Fresh that will change your mind (and your habits). Say hello to Mann’s Nourish Bowls Breakfast.

Although we haven’t tried the others, we had the pleasure of enjoying Mann’s Fresh Nourish Bowls Breakfast. The two new breakfast options, Denver Scramble, and Fiesta Scramble join the vast variety of Nourish Bowls that includes Monterey Risotto, Sesame Sriracha, Southwest Chipotle, Smokehouse Brussels, Spicy Thai, Basil Pesto, Tomato Bolognese, and Cauli Rice Curry.

A healthy twist on one of America’s favorite breakfasts, the Denver Scramble features kale, sweet potato, cauliflower and broccoli with a Bell Pepper Sauce that has diced ham & onion and comes with a cheddar cheese topping. The Fiesta Scramble has kale, cauliflower, kohlrabi and butternut squash with a Pico de Gallo Salsa that has chicken chorizo and comes with a Mexican Cheese Blend topping.

You will see making a healthy and delicious breakfast is as easy as 1,2,3. Add one or two eggs, pop the microwave-safe bowl in for 4 minutes and enjoy these fresh veggie breakfast bowls! At 330 calories or less and up to 25 grams of protein, these new bowls bring to the breakfast table. Are you excited for the new Nourish Bowls Breakfast from Mann’s Fresh Vegetables? We certainly are!

What I’m Craving | Del Monte Mango Fruit Cup Snacks

While I love discovering new brands, I find myself becoming quite nostalgic and fiercely loyal when a long-time favorite brand launches a new product I know I will enjoy. I’m a lover of fruit and I can’t always take fresh fruit on the go with me, so I opt for fruit cups. One of my go-to brands is Del Monte. The majority of my grocery list is filled with apple sauce, pear chunks, tangerine slices, etc which I either eat as a snack or use for a few smoothies. Of course not all fruits are available – I love mango but until recently, I had to buy whole mangoes, slice them, etc. Thanks to Del Monte, I don’t have to do that anymore with their Mango Fruit Snack Packs.

I have enjoyed several packs of this delicious tropical fruit. I hope you don’t mind my sharing a few of my favorite recipes – all of which you guys should definitely try.

Mango Refresher

1 jar (20 oz.) Del Monte® SunFresh® Mango, undrained
1/2 cup orange juice
1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
8 ice cubes
(Optional) fresh mint
Combine all ingredients in blender or food processor; blend until smooth. Garnish with sprigs of fresh mint, if desired

Mango Chicken Stir-fry

2 cups Del Monte® SunFresh® Mango, drained and cubed
3 medium skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut in cubes (I sometimes substitute shrimp)
1 cup green pepper strips
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 Tbsp. oil
1/2 cup stir-fry sauce or sweet and sour sauce
1/4 cup sliced green onions
(Optional) salt
(Optional) pepper
(Optional) rice
Cook chicken, green pepper, garlic, ginger and pepper flakes in oil in large skillet, 5 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in sauce and green onions; cook 2 minutes. Add fruit and heat through. Serve with rice, if desired.

Don’t feel like cooking, you can eat it straight out of the cup or add a few extras first like granola, yogurt, etc to get a little snack variety. All these delicious fruits are available at your local grocery store.
