My husband and I have made responsible choices for our purchases and would often make vegetarian dishes to reduce meat consumption. But, upon having kids, something changed. Our dedication to make flexitarian choices seemed even more important because our decisions directly impact our kids. But life gets busy. And meals from scratch get more difficult (especially on the weeknights). But flexitarian meals are simple with Marie Callender’s Chick’n Pot Pie made with Gardein Plant-Based Chick’n from Walmart.
What is Flexitarian?
A flexitarian is considered someone who follows a less-strict form of vegetarianism. Personally, I just really enjoy meat-free meals!
Why Marie Callender’s?
I grew up eating Marie Callender’s Pot Pies. It’s one of my favorite comfort foods. And Marie Callender’s Chick’n Pot Pie made with Gardein Plant-Based Chick’n is my go-to for that comfort food feeling. It’s made with the same golden, flaky, crust you know and love. But with Gardein Plant-Based Chick’n!
Marie Callender’s Chick’n Pot Pie made with Gardein Plant-Based Chick’n is a regular family favorite in our house. My kids have no idea they are eating Gardein Plant-Based Chick’n. Plus they’re getting all of the veggies they need.
Flexitarian on a budget?
With three kids and two adults to feed, a flexitarian meal plan can easily go over budget. But it doesn’t have to. In fact, I work our flexitarian meals into our regular shopping from Walmart Grocery Pickup and we stay well within our grocery budget. It’s true! The Walmart frozen section is actually full of vegetarian, dairy-free, and flexitarian meals to satisfy the whole family.
If you’re on the fence, add a couple of these to your next Walmart grocery pick up order and try them for yourself. I think you’ll be surprised at how much it tastes like the ‘real’ thing. And who knows! Perhaps you’ll be ready to try out the flexitarian lifestyle, too!
