Lean Pockets for My Writing Breaks and On the Go + Sweepstakes


I’m totally into healthy eating. It’s really important that when I’m home I do my best to not only watch my caloric intake, but make sure I’m getting nutritious meals. When we travel, we don’t always have the option to eat super healthy and by the time we’re home, we’re ready for healthier choices. That’s why I always have Lean Pockets in the freezer. They are a no-brainer when my head is filled with a million other things.

Why Lean Pockets are a Go to for Me:

Realistically I can’t always cook. When I get home from a media trip, I have so many deadlines it’s not even funny. I’m a busy single mom running a blog brand. I’ve been serving up Lean Pockets for years. My new favorite is the White Meat Chicken Jalapeno & Cheese with a pretzel bread crust. I’m totally in love with this craveable, tasty meal I feel good about eating.  It fills me up and keeps me cranking out the deadlines while satisfying my craving for something hot and gooey. They’re a good source of protein; and they have 100% real cheese. Chicken Jalapeno & Cheese with a pretzel bread crust

Availability: Find them in Target, Walmart and most local grocers. MSRP $2.29-2.49. Click here for a $1 coupon from Coupons.com

You don’t have to always drop everything and make an epic meal. Let’s be real, that’s not happening every day. Sometimes we have to save time and even multitask. Check out the new Chicken Jalapeno & Cheese with a pretzel bread crust Lean Pockets. They are awesome. I love pretzel bread and the added jalapeno kick is just enough.
