Are you ready to change the way you eat and take better care of yourself? I know that I am. After having my daughter almost three years ago, I haven’t been as healthy as I would like to be and I’ve been packing on the pounds. I’ve been so busy with her that I haven’t been watching what I’ve been eating and I’m really paying for it now. But that is no excuse. This year I’ve decided to make a change. I’ve decided that eating well and living healthy are going to be my priority.

Like most, I didn’t know where to start. I didn’t want to give up the things that I loved. So, I’ve decided to change the way that I think about food instead of trying to go on crash diets that end up with me going on a eating binge afterwards. I’ve realized that moderation is key and flavor is everything. I’m also realizing that I don’t have to give up the things I love if I can substitute certain high fat, high cholesterol foods for healthier options. Even one little substitution is a step in the right direction. Also, flavor is also a big deal. If something doesn’t have great flavor, then why eat it? I’m learning that you can eat healthier and not sacrifice flavor with just a few simple lifestyle changes.

One of the first steps I made to changing my lifestyle was planning out my shopping trips. Before, I would go to the store and just buy what I thought we needed and I would end up with random snacks and junk food. By arming myself with a pre-made list and sticking to it, it was less tempting for me to buy things that I didn’t need and well, it was better for my budget. Now, I always make sure to have my list handy, especially since my hubby and I tend to wander around, looking at random things when we go to Walmart. When I’m on my shopping trips, I still make sure to keep an eye out for new food products to try that are easy for me to prepare and easy on my budget. (Hey you have to add new items to your arsenal every once in a while.) This is one reason why I am absolutely in love with Tyson’s Grilled and Ready products. Not only are there a variety of products, but the products also have great flavor and are easy to prepare in just minutes. I love the idea of being able to put together a meal in quickly and easily for my family because we are always on the go. Also, you don’t have to spend a great deal of money to save time. Walmart has Tyson’s Grilled and Ready products for everyday low prices! (Side note: My local Walmart is a little hectic since it’s the only one for miles, hence, the chaos of the refrigerated case. Apologies for the  ransacked looking picture!

For this recipe, I scooped up the Tyson’s Grilled and Ready Chicken Breast Strips. There were so many great choices but I decided on the Chicken Breast Strips because it made more sense for what I wanted to make. It’s great when you can that with Tyson’s Grilled and Ready products, you can “just add this” to a few simple ingredients and be done in no time! Here’s the recipe for my easy Chicken Satay Lettuce cups. They are great for lunch, a snack, or even as a game day appetizer! I hope you like the recipe and I hope it inspires you to eat healthier without sacrificing the foods you love.
To make these lettuce cups, you will need Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken Breast Strips, lettuce, a shredded carrot, creamy peanut butter, low sodium soy sauce, a clove of garlic, water, half of a lime and some honey.

The directions are pretty simple. The sauce takes about 5 minutes and the chicken takes about 3-5 minutes. The rest is prep and assembly. Within 15 minutes you can have a great tasting and healthy lunch or appetizer.


Being a stay at home mom and a mom that is constantly on the go, healthy options are few and far between for me. I am always looking for something quick and easy and not necessarily healthy. With Tyson Grilled and Ready products, I can have the best of both worlds. These chicken breast strips are not only delicious, but also healthy and a great time saver.
