I was compensated by Tyson Foods to produce this post.

Hey friends, I just wanted to give you a little reminder that The Countdown to a Better You program is still underway. May 3rd marked 50 days to summer, can you believe that? So jump on board as we inch closer to summer, with guilt-free recipes, like the one I’m sharing today!

Remember that 80% of Amer­i­cans would like to spend less than 30 min­utes cook­ing din­ner. My hand is in the air! But we all know that con­ve­nience foods are not the health­i­est nor for your waistline, and def­i­nitely not the best way to make a “bet­ter you”. So, I’m glad when I need something quick and easy, that I can reach for Tyson® Grilled & Ready® products, usually whipping up a salad, meeting some of my summer goals in a pinch!

The Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken is all white meat, fully cooked, 98% fat free, and has no preser­v­a­tives. And, the Grilled & Ready® beef prod­ucts are also fully cooked, carved from real steak, with no preser­v­a­tives! It’s con­ve­nience you can feel good about!

We have lots planned this summer, and one goal for me is to fit into my fly fishing waders. It’s been a few years since I’ve worn them and my husband and I are heading up to fly fish for 3 days for my 50th birthday. Who wants to buy a new pair of waders? Everyone is motivated differently when it comes to staying in shape for summer. I’m always motivated by whether my clothes fit comfortably or are a little snug.

I hope you enjoy this summer salad recipe today!

So as we’re inching closer to summer, if you’re making changes to being healthier, what’s motivating you the most?

 a. Your family

b. Upcoming social event

c. Health benefits

d. To fit better into your clothes

  1. I’m all for healthy right now, as my latest post shows. Probably for all the reasons you mentioned above although I’m strictly a spinner fisherman :) Have fun when it comes!

  2. I have to admit, my motivations are a little vain – because I want to fit better into my clothes and to look good in family photos from this summer ;) But the long-term motivator is ALWAYS health!
