When we moved to Texas nine years ago, we had big plans for what our life would look like. We were new parents and like most parents wanted to do what we thought was best for our daughter and our little family so we could live the best, healthiest life we knew how.
One of the things we started doing as new parents was to take a new look at the foods we were eating and products we were using. The foods and products we had been using for years suddenly didn’t seem like the best choices when there was a baby in the mix. We needed to make a change.
Fast forward nine years and we have a lot more going on in life. Life currently involves two kids, two dogs, two chickens, both of us with full-time jobs, and volunteer commitments. We had intentions of keeping our gardening up and even took apart the raised beds and relocated the soil to a new house but a lot of life happened in there and something had to give.
Instead of giving up on making smart, responsible choices for our family we didn’t drop those desires for a healthier home, we just adapted and found an alternate way to get there. Instead of doing it all ourselves, we’re getting help where we can. One way we’re doing this is with Open Nature® products from Albertsons and Randalls stores.
Part of getting help from Open Nature in our home was finding the best products that fit into our everyday life. Some of our favorite Open Nature products are the Open Nature Paper Towels, Open Nature Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt Strained, Open Nature Whole Roasted Chicken, and Open Nature Balsamic Vinaigrette. While this may seem like a disjointed list, let me explain how these products fit into the clean, natural lifestyle we were trying to do on our own but for less work.
You can see in this Easy Greek Salad with Rotisserie Chicken Recipe how an Open Nature Whole Roasted Chicken is an easy dinner that saves you from going out to eat and can provide easy protein for lots of different meals. While making your own dressing doesn’t take too much time, it is an extra step and having a bottle of Open Nature Balsamic Vinaigrette is a convenient and delicious way to top your salads quickly and always encourages me to eat more veggies!
Easy Greek Salad with Rotisserie Chicken
- 1 head Romain lettuce chopped
- 1/2 cup Open Nature Whole Roasted Chicken shredded
- 1/2 cup red onions chopped
- 1/2 cup tomatoes chopped
- 1/2 cup cucumbers chopped
- 1/4 cup pitted kalamta olives
- 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
- optional garnish: pepperocini peppers
Starting with lettuce, add all ingredients to a large salad bowl.
Serve topped with Open Nature Balsamic Vinaigrette!
Or, if you prefer a Tzatziki inspired dressing, mix 1 cup Open Nature® Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt Strained with 1/4 cup chopped cucumber, 1 minced garlic clove, the juice of 1 lemon, 1 tablespoon fresh chopped dill, and salt and pepper in a food processor until well blended.
Open Nature Paper Towels help save me time cleaning because I can use the product and toss it without worrying about the extra step of laundering reusable towels but still have the peace of mind that it’s environmentally-friendly because the paper towels are made with 100% recycled paper. Open Nature Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt saves me time in the kitchen because anyone that’s made their own Greek yogurt in the oven knows what a labor of love it is…meaning a huge time suck when time is at a premium. A large container of Open Nature Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt not only provides easy breakfasts and snacks for the family, but also creates an easy base for marinades and toppings.
Open Nature products are high quality with minimal processing which provides the best for our family, friends, pets, and the environment all at a great value. Check them out and if you’re not fully satisfied with the quality, you’ll get your money back. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by cleaning up your life with over for 400 products from Open Nature for your entire home!
