Well, the first month and half of school is officially in the books and I can honestly say I was in no way prepared for how much busy our schedule would become in such a short amount of time. Most days, I am spending 3+ hours in the car driving the kids to and from school and running errands, on top of working and life in between. Needless to say, we feel like we are constantly on the go and I quickly realized my mealtime menus needed to change to keep up with our schedule. So, I set out to find some quick and easy, yet affordable meal options and I was so pleased to find that our local Walmart had an amazing selection of specialty diet meal options for the vegetarian, to the vegan and much more!
I was so surprised and excited to find all of these great options so close to home and conveniently located. Here are just a few items I picked up in my Walmart Specialty Diet Grocery Haul this week:
For breakfast, I need things that are very quick and easy, plus can be eaten on the go in the car if needed. Some mornings, I have time to sit down for breakfast, and others I’m lucky if I have time to click the toaster down. Because of this, I love grabbing Good Food Made Simple® French Toast for breakfast. You can make them really quick and I love french toast. Plus, they are made with oats and ancient grains. They are also full of antioxidants and have 40g of whole grains per 2-slice serving. Did I mention these are a great vegetarian option too? These are such a great breakfast option.
For lunch, I have slightly more time, but I am typically eating while working at my computer. The Marie Callender’s Plant-Based Chick’n Pot Pie made with Gardein Plant-Based Chick’n is another option I found at Walmart for vegetarians, flexitarians or people who just love a good pot pie. This pot pie has a golden, flaky, made-from-scratch envelope and inside, you find seasoned Gardein Plant-Based Chick’n, carrots, celery and peas for a meat-free spin on a classic. Honestly, this is also really great for dinner and is a microwavable so it is ready really quick.
Another lunch time option I found is Good Food Made Simple® Cauliflower Kung Pao. It is certified Gluten Free and high in protein. Also, it is lower in sodium and fast comfort food. It has Non goo veggies and they also have a wide variety of cuisine options and some vegetarian options.
Since my whole family participates in dinner, I decided on “kid friendly options of Amy’s Mac & 3 Cheese with Cauliflower Bowl and Amy’s Cheese Veggie Crust Pizza. These are both Comfort food made easy! There is no need to spend hours in the kitchen when you can warm up Amy’s new Gluten-Free Mac & 3 Cheese with Cauliflower Bowl in just a few minutes. The three-cheese sauce starts from scratch (no powder used!). Then, it’s added to gluten-free pasta and organic cauliflower. Every bite is just as delicious as the last!
And, Amy’s new Cheese Veggie Crust Pizza is so yummy! It is made with an organic cauliflower, broccoli and sweet potato crust. Now, eating veggies is as easy as eating pizza which I need big time for my kiddos. It is perfect for even the pickiest of little eaters.
Is the day really complete without dessert? I think not! So Delicious Ice Cream Bars made the top of my list because they are rich, creamy, and actually dairy free. So Delicious Dairy Free is vegan, and a part of the B-Corp™ community, meaning it has high standards of social and environmental performance.
This rounds out my Walmart Specialty Item Grocery Haul! Walmart really has all of your meal times covered from breakfast to dessert with great options for speciality diets. I love the value you get on each of these items and the quality. Not to mention, the ease of them being at the same store as other groceries we typically purchase weekly. I would definitely call this grocery haul a win for moms on the go! Be sure to head to your local Walmart and pick up a few of these to try for yourself!
