ENTER TO WIN: Tyson Grilled & Ready and Hungry Girl Cookbook

Back for the second year, Tyson Foods, makers of Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken and beef products, is kicking-off 2013 with the 30 Days, 30 Ways, 30 Rewards Program to empower users to make and stick to their smart-eating resolutions. Teaming up with Tyson Foods again, guilt-free food expert Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien will bring meal ideas – all under 400 calories per serving – and expert advice to users daily through the click of a mouse.  Starting January 1, users can visit, and each day, a new recipe, tip and prize will be revealed to provide participants with fresh ideas and inspiration.

Users can find guilt-free, quick-to-prepare Hungry Girl recipes like a Too-Good Chicken Torta or Greek Chicken Tacos, made with high quality Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken. Daily tips will cover a variety of topics from fitness and health to smart eating. Prizes range from exercise equipment, cookware, and gift cards to Hungry Girl™ books, Tyson® Grilled & Ready® products and more.

According to Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien, “Eating right shouldn’t feel like a constant, daily battle. You’d be surprised to know that by making simple changes to your diet, like using 98 percent fat free Tyson® Grilled & Ready® chicken, you can achieve the results you want and turn good daily practices into great lifetime habits.” A few tips from Lillien to reach your end goal include:

  • Identify Small Changes You Can Stick To: When making changes to your daily habits, keep them small, yet effective. Take walks on your lunch break, and have a side salad with your fast-food order instead of fries. Once you master that, push yourself a little further… Maybe go jogging, and have a grilled chicken sandwich instead of that burger!
  • Prepare for Those Time-Crunched Moments: Most of us are short on time, so having items in the kitchen that are smart choices but quick-to-make can save your waistline. Tyson® Grilled & Ready ® products are fully cooked with a delicious grilled taste, so you don’t have to stress about the prep work – it’s already been done for you. Just add a serving of high-fiber pasta and lots of veggies or a salad, and you’ve got a wholesome, guilt-free meal in no time.
  • Swap Out Regular Staples for More Wholesome Versions: Sandwiches are fast, but ordinary bread can be high in calories (and a little boring!). Look for high-fiber pitas, 100-calorie flat sandwich buns, and even light English muffins. Or skip the carbs altogether and use giant lettuce leaves — quick and easy!

Tyson Foods is also helping women overcome common food struggles by sharing the stories of three real women to motivate others to join the programThese women all represent common issues associated with different food personalities: time-crunched, willpower-challenged and the all-around food lover. To inspire other women to commit to healthful changes, these women will track their progress online through the program’s Facebook page so women across the country can take the journey together.

“We want to show women that all it takes to make health-conscious changes in the New Year is a few small adjustments to their diets to create a larger, long-term impact,” says Alicia Mosley, Senior Brand Manager for TysonFoods. “Tyson® Grilled & Ready® products are available both in the refrigerated and frozen sections of your grocery store. They are the easy and nutritious ways to prepare meals at home without sacrificing quality or taste to maintain a well-balanced lifestyle.”

There are also Grilled & Ready® beef products available. Tyson® Grilled & Ready® products are conveniently packaged, so women can use what they need to create delicious and smart meals in minutes, and the rest stays fresh for the next quick-fix dish.

  8. Of all the recipes you described, I’d love to try the “too-good Chicken torta”

  9. Looking forward to trying the Too Good Chicken Torta! Easy, fast, tasty, and healthy.

    One of my go-to quick dinner recipes is this- (Try it!) –

    Mash a can of kidney beans with a fork…leave as chunky as you like. Mix in dried or fresh italian herbs – I use a dried mix of herbs because it’s easy and cheap to keep on hand. If you can mix the beans and let them sit in fridge with herbs mixed in for a bit, taste is better. Using a soft taco sized tortilla (corn, whole wheat, whatever you like – I use a thin whole wheat), fill half of tortilla with bean mixture, sprinkle shredded cheese on top (I use a reduced fat mexican blend), fold tortilla over, and heat in a pan on both sides until heated well throughout and tortilla is a little crispy.

  10. Chicken breasts with cream of mushroom soup and stuffing in a casserole.


  11. When I make chicken tacos or burrito’s, I always use Tyson Breast give it great taste and the chicken doesn’t break apart.

  12. i like the Quick Asian Beef and Broccoli with Noodles

  13. Pizza-fied Chicken, this sounds like something my family would all like !!

  14. Honey chicken and fried rice =) Love it! And chicken and bacon Italian Sub sandwiches come a close second!

  15. Pizza-fied Chicken

    Anything with the word Pizza in it has to be good. LOL

  16. The Too Good Chicken Torta is the one I’ll be trying first. But, I copied all three and sent them to my email. I intend to make all three recipes.
