When the school bell starts to ring again, and my kids are back for the school year, family meal time can be chaotic. With after-school sports and homework, it’s vital that I keep family meal prep as easy as possible. If that means finding some shortcuts, I’m all about it. During the week, I’m all about getting a delicious and healthy meal on the table with little effort.
I’m partnering with some awesome brands to bring you some amazing back-to-school meal time finds. Add a few of these finds into your family meal prep routine and you might be able to cut your cooking time. Every minute saved counts during the weekdays! Plus, I’m sharing a way to give back to families (with Feeding America®) in need for the month of September – which is Hunger Action Month.
What I love most about these products is how you can use them to get meals started. The Veggies Made Great frittata and muffins can spice up a boring lunch box. The Mighty Sesame Co. Tahini is a great addition to recipes and I use it regularly when I meal prep homemade hummus. The ideas are endless and you’ll have some great meal ideas without a ton of effort.
4 Back To School Finds For Easy Family Meal Prep
As our family is busy with our own Back-To-School routine, I’m also thinking of other families who many not have the opportunities and blessing that we do. Did you know that families are still working to recover from last year, and fighting to get food on their tables? Feeding America® is largest hunger-relief organization in the U.S. and their annual September campaign, for Hunger Action Month, driving awareness to assistant families who are struggling.
Nobody should be forced to choose between food and medicine. If you’re feeling inspired to help other families, you can join Feeding America®. Choose to end hunger and take action for Hunger Action Month.
Veggies Made Great – Get Creative For School Lunches
Looking for more ways to get some veggies in your kid’s lunch? Me too. It’s overwhelming to prepare fresh vegetables on a weekly basis. Veggies Made Great is here to help us out. I recommend the Double Chocolate Muffins for picky vegetable eaters because the zucchini and carrots are “hidden” in a great-tasting muffin. Plus with only 110 calories, it has lower sugar than the leading muffin product.
If you want a high protein option, the Spinach Egg White Frittata is my favorite. They’re keto-friendly and have over 80% vegetables for a delicious on-the-go breakfast option.

Mighty Sesame Organic & Harissa Tahini – Easily Add Flavor To Meals
Even though a single sesame seed is a small beginning, the Mighty® Sesame Co. knows the power of sesame and how to harness the flavor. The Mighty Sesame Organic Tahini is one of my favorite base products for making homemade hummus. I meal prep a batch in the beginning of the week and my kids enjoy it as a snack with fresh vegetables.
It’s spicier counterpart, Mighty Sesame Harissa Tahini, is my go-to mayo substitute for sandwiches. I feel good knowing I’m getting an extra nutrition punch with the 260mg of calcium per serving too.
Both products come in easy squeeze bottles so you can quickly grab and use them for your favorite recipes. The possibilities are endless and it all started with the humble sesame seed!
King Arthur Baking Company Pancake Mix – Make Breakfast Exciting Again
King Arthur Baking Company, that we all know and love, has been making great products since 1790! It’s the name I trust when I’m baking and now they’re here to help us great a tasty breakfast on the table without much hassle. I’m a big fan that the brand is a certified B Corp and 100% employee owned.
If you’re a fan of the classics, you’re going to love their Buttermilk Pancake Mix. Made with real buttermilk, you can cut time in the kitchen because all you need to do is add water to the mix. It’s sourced from non-GMO ingredients and comes in a resealable bag.
My kids love the Confetti Pancake Mix which are fluffy pancakes with all-natural sprinkles (no synthetic colors) baked inside. I call them mom-approved because they’ve got only 5 grams of added sugar, but still pack in a lot of breakfast fun.
Minute Rice – The Side Dish Our Family Loves
My Grandmother loved serving Minute Rice and everybody loved what came out of her kitchen – and that’s why I trust it too. Since the 1940’s Minute Rice has been an easy mealtime solution. You can purchase Minute Rice is Ready to Serve cups that’s convenient and perfectly portioned.
The two flavors that we use, Minute Ready to Serve White Rice and Minute Ready To Serve Brown & Wild Rice, makes a quick side dish for dinner. The microwavable rice allows me more time to prepare main dishes, but still adds great flavor to our meal. Plus, the Ready to Serve cups are BPA-free and 100% recyclable.
