Is it just me, or does it seem like diet fads are becoming more and more popular? I feel like no matter where I go lately, or who I talk to, there is another special diet that will supposedly help any excess weight fall right off of me. Everyone claims to have the new solution to how and what we should eat. I am a firm believer in moderation in all things. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have time to worry about counting calories, eating certain foods on certain days, or worrying about what the newest food-fad is. I am just grateful when I get a homemade, healthy meal on the table for my family. That’s a success in my book. That’s what we try to do at Deals to Meals. Give your family homemade meal options that can be pulled together in 30-60 minutes, all based around what’s on sale. It’s a win-win for all of us and our busy families. Today I am excited to share not only a healthy meal option for your family, but an inexpensive one to. This meal (here in Utah) was under $10 and fed my family of 7 with some leftovers for tomorrow (yippee!).
On a different note, today was one of those crazy days when you really don’t have more than a few minutes to put together a dinner for your family. To keep me from making a run to Little Caesar’s pizza, I bought a package of fresh chicken at Walmart and came home to prep dinner. This meal was so awesome because not only was the ENTIRE meal under $10 for 7 people, but it was also low in calories and made from all fresh, healthy ingredients. I started prepping this meal at 4:20 and dinner was on the table by 5. Saaaweet! This dish was a dinner-saver and we all couldn’t have been happier. Happy AND healthy…now that’s a combo worth striving for 🙂 Want more homemade, healthy meal ideas? Visit our website for additional meal plans, recipes and the weekly deals from your area. Enjoy!

Trim chicken from the excess fat. Place chicken into a large bowl or Ziploc gallon sized bag. Combine the marinade ingredients and pour over the chicken. Toss to coat all sides of the chicken in the marinade. Marinade for up to 6-8 hours. Grill the chicken on a hot grill until the chicken is cooked through and is no longer pink in the center (about 10-15 minutes per side--depending how thick the chicken is). While the chicken is cooking, if you have extra marinade left in the bowl, you can baste the chicken with the extra sauce if you wish to give the chicken more flavor.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Rinse the potatoes and cut into fourths. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Place the cut potatoes onto the pan and add the baby carrots. Drizzle with the olive oil and season with the Montreal Steak Seasoning and the dry onion soup mix. Toss the potatoes and carrots in the olive oil until all sides are coated.
