I know how challenging it can be at times to prepare family meals that are healthy, delicious, and budget friendly. I am always looking for shortcuts, but sometimes those shortcuts aren’t as healthy as I would like. I’m so excited about Tyson® Grilled & Ready® products, and how they will make it easier to feed my family healthy, delicious meals in a jiffy. I have a fabulous Greek Chicken Tacos recipe to share with you, from renowned, guilt-free food expert Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien!

30 Days, 30 Ways, 30 Rewards program
Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien has teamed up with Tyson Foods to kick off 2013 by empowering women via their inspiring 30 Days, 30 Ways, 30 Rewards program.

You’ll also have a chance to win a great new prize every day of the program!

Which food personality are you?

  • Time-Crunched
  • Willpower-Challenged
  • All-Around Food Lover

According to Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien, “Eating right shouldn’t feel like a constant, daily battle. You’d be surprised to know that by making simple changes to your diet, like using 98 percent fat free Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken, you can achieve the results you want and turn good daily practices into great lifetime habits.” A few tips from Lillien to reach your end goal include:

· Identify Small Changes You Can Stick To: When making changes to your daily habits, keep them small, yet effective. Take walks on your lunch break, and have a side salad with your fast-food order instead of fries. Once you master that, push yourself a little further… Maybe go jogging, and have a grilled chicken sandwich instead of that burger!

· Prepare for Those Time-Crunched Moments: Most of us are short on time, so having items in the kitchen that are smart choices but quick-to-make can save your waistline. Tyson® Grilled & Ready ® products are fully cooked with a delicious grilled taste, so you don’t have to stress about the prep work – it’s already been done for you. Just add a serving of high-fiber pasta and lots of veggies or a salad, and you’ve got a wholesome, guilt-free meal in no time.

· Swap Out Regular Staples for More Wholesome Versions: Sandwiches are fast, but ordinary bread can be high in calories (and a little boring!). Look for high-fiber pitas, 100-calorie flat sandwich buns, and even light English muffins. Or skip the carbs altogether and use giant lettuce leaves — quick and easy!

  58. The all around food lover, thanks!

  59. Got here from Pinterest….but confused. The lovely yummy photo shows the chicken greek taco inside a flat bottomed taco shell, but the recipe (and therefore presumably the nutrition counts) say a flat sandwich bun…..so which is the calorie count for a bun or a taco shell?

    • To stay within the calorie count, I would use the Hungry Girl Flat Out Fold-It Flat bread in Whole Wheat (90 calories) or your choice of corn taco shell which also comes in at just under 100 calories. So whichever you choose, the calorie count is about the same. Hope that helps and thanks for stopping by!
