Sponsored Post | The JetSet FamilyThis back-to-school season, my family has decided to kickstart our new year’s resolutions by living + eating healthier. Thanks to our friends at Foster Farms for sponsoring this post I can share with you one of our favorite meals. Enjoy!

In our home, back-to-school can also be considered code word for menu planning, and this year, we’re taking it more seriously than ever. We’ve collectively decided to make more concerted efforts when it comes healthy choices and elevating our well-being across our minds, bodies and souls.

How exactly are we tackling this new lifestyle change? Well for starters, we’re moving more. Kiddo is swimming again this season, Hubs decided to investigate the world of CrossFit and LOVED it so much he joined a local “box,” and a friend talked me into trying spin class and while I far from love exercising, I really enjoyed breaking a sweat and like having a “fitness partner” to hold me accountable.

But “Garbage In Is Garbage Out,” so a big part of our family’s lifestyle modification includes the way we eat. You would think this would be difficult for a family that embraces comfort food come football season, but fresh, flavorful recipes taste so much better. Not to mention eating healthy gives us the extra energy we so desperately need and makes us feel so much better as well.

The New Comfort Food

Whether it’s an evolution or revolution, The New Comfort Food is a shift toward healthier comfort food meals that use fresh, local and seasonal ingredients – something Southern California has been embracing for as long as I can remember. This movement is encouraging more and more home chefs to move away from traditionally heavy, rich foods and embrace a more healthful, mindful way of eating.

I’m happy to say healthy food is officially our New Comfort Food, and we learned this thanks to our partnership with Foster Farms Chicken. We’ve been collaborating with the brand for a while now, and we’re so happy to share with our readers that Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken is antibiotic-free with no added hormones or steroids, and is raised on a 100% vegetarian diet.

Less Is More

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times: when it comes to cooking, I love to shop local purveyors first, checking out the neighborhood’s farmers’ market for fresh seasonal vegetables. They are always the perfect complement to any dish.

While on this journey, I’ve learned herbs and spices go a long way in eliminating unnecessary calories. Between you and I never did I think I would see the day my husband and child wouldn’t feel the need to drown, dunk or dip every bite of dinner in some sort of sauce. But the cleaner I cook, the less “stuff” they add to their plates and this makes me happy and really optimistic.

Ginger Chicken Sandwich Wraps

Get ready and whip out the wok because I’m going to share with you a dish that is a big hit in our home right now: Ginger Chicken Sandwich Wraps! It’s an easy, low-fuss recipe made from last night’s leftovers and Kiddo loves finding them in her lunch sack for school which is a big win in my book.

    This wraps look so delicious! I love fresh ginger and I’m sure the soy sauce gives it a great flavor. Decisions, decisions. I’m torn between which greens to add as I love spinach and napa cabbage. Going to try this tonight! 🙂

    This sounds like a very flavorful dish. I haven’t seen this particular Foster Farms product in our area yet.
