Make Simple Swaps

While all children have variations in their growth and appetites, the hot summer sun can disrupt an already finicky eater even more.

You don’t have to reinvent the wheel to eat plant-based foods. Try using SWEET EARTH Mindful Chik’n strips instead of regular chicken in your favorite recipes. These fully cooked, ready-to-eat chik’n strips are perfect in salads, rice bowls, wraps, sandwiches, and stuffed peppers. Mindful Chik'n is also a great addition to authentic Latin dishes like enchiladas, tacos, tostadas, burritos and more.

Tossing the strips in your favorite salsas, condiments and curries adds even more flavor and variety, especially if you plan on using Mindful Chik’n in a few different recipes throughout the week.
