Balanced Meals from Schwan's

Partway through January, you might be contemplating those goals or resolutions you set for the new year. If one of those was eating in a more balanced fashion, we have some ideas that will help you reset your thinking about creating enticing, balanced menus at home.

Offering a variety of proteins, pretty-on-the-plate vegetables, and side dishes that invite mixing and matching, these meals will inspire you to stick to your resolution all year long.

Chicken Breasts, Green Beans and Risotto from Schwan's
Bake, grill or sauté Premium Chicken Breast Filets and pair them with easy, steam-in-the bag MicroSteam Whole Green Beans. Add our classic, creamy Risotto and we know you’ll be putting this meal into regular rotation.

Ancient Grain Cod, Rice Pilaf and Asparagus from Schwan's
For texture on your plate, try our crisply flavorful Ancient Grain Encrusted Cod and our Asparagus Spears that are tender from top to bottom. Keeping with a grains theme, complement them with our Five-Grain Rice Pilaf.

Wild-Caught Alaskan Salmon and Fire-Roasted Vegetable Blend from Schwan's
Any way you prepare them, whether it’s baked, broiled or grilled, these Wild-Caught Alaskan Salmon fillets cook up flaky and rosy. The Fire-Roasted Vegetable Blend can complete your meal with chunky red potatoes and tender vegetables.

Beef Pot Roast, Mashed Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts from Schwan's
Our Slow-Roasted Beef Pot Roast with Gravy is truly slowly roasted in its own rich juices. It delivers plenty of gravy for the Creamy Mashed Potatoes. Enjoy them both with lightly seasoned Petite Brussels Sprouts. This is homestyle food made easy.
