Balance Your Plate with DiGiorno

I am a member of the Balance Your Plate team and helping spread the word about DIGIORNO pizzas. As a team member, I receive product and incentives in exchange for participating in brand related activities.


In my house, I try to ensure that my family and I are getting the nutrients we need with every meal. I do this by purchasing the foods that are healthy, and that can help me when it comes to balancing our plates. And when it comes to dinner time in my house, I like to create a well balanced meal that the whole family can enjoy.  


The thing is, on those busy weeknights, when we are all getting home after work and those after school activities, finding the time to create a home cooked, well balanced meal can be easier said than done. So, like many others out there, I might run to the store on the way home, and grab frozen meals that I can cook up quickly and serve. And on nights like that, I find that the dinner I serve might not be the ideal well balanced dinner I might have had in mind. 

Well to help me with the dilemma I find myself facing from time to time, when it comes to creating a well balanced meal for my family, I was given some great ideas on how to balance the plate in my home from DiGiorno! I found that even on nights where creating a meal from scratch is not an option, I can still serve my family a tasty, well balanced meal, that they will enjoy and that I can feel good about serving.

I learned that on nights where I looking for a quick meal that I can throw in the oven, I can grab some of the DiGiorno Pizza varieties to bring home and serve to my family and still serve a well balanced meal. I can do this because when I choose to purchase the DiGiornio brand pizzas, I am choosing a pizza that is freshly made and simply frozen. Meaning that when they create those pizzas we can find in our grocers freezers, they make them with fresh ingredients, like the vegetables that are selected when they are at the peak of their freshness, then frozen and ready to be cooked. When they are frozen like this, they are chosen so they reduce their nutrient loss, allowing my family to get the benefits I seek out when preparing dinners for them.


Then to help when it comes to balancing our plates at home, I like that I can pick up some of the DIGIORNO pizzeria!™ and pizzeria! thin crust pizzas, and serve it with a side dish that includes a fruit and or vegetable! I also like that with the DIGIORNO pizzeria!™ varieties, I can serve my family a pizza that is made with the highest quality ingredients and that contains no artificial flavor. Which helps to not only give my family a great tasting meal, but when we go with say the Supreme Speciale along with a side dish, we get a well balanced meal that contains the fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy, and meats as well!

Making the pizzas that we choose from DiGiorno, not only a family favorite, but also a food that helps parents like myself, who think that serving a well balanced meal on a busy night is near impossible, a very possible task! So if you find that you are in search of a meal that is quick and easy to put together, yet something that is healthy, well balanced, and a choice that your whole family can enjoy, then add DiGiorno to your menu!

They had these pizzas where I live at the Grocery Outlet for $1.99 and I bought 3 of them and we had them for dinner last night. Digiorno makes the best tasting frozen pizzas and so easy to make.

yes, they are and I like that they are made with fresh frozen ingredients, which changes the perception of pizza being a junk food item!

(Balance Your Plate with DiGiorno) I really like having their pizza because it has a thinner crust and I like the healthier choices of toppings too-
