New Year = New Diet? Have your sausage and eat it too!

describe the imageIt’s the time of year for resolutions to eat better and live a healthier lifestyle – there’s lots of talk even here around the Isernio’s offices about losing those holiday pounds and getting out and getting active again. 

If you’ve either recently committed to eating healthier, or if you’re just trying to get back on the healthy track after a holiday season of overindulgence, don’t forget that our sausage most definitely CAN be a part of a healthier lifestyle!  No need to deprive yourself when our chicken sausages have only 110 calories per link, and our chicken sausage rolls only have 80 calories per serving  (that’s only 2 Weight Watcher’s points!). 

Busy days and nights can make it even more difficult to prepare fresh, healthy meals from scratch.  If you think about it, chicken sausage really can be the ultimate “convenience food” for quick, wholesome meals.  Our chicken sausage, made from whole skinless chicken thigh, is a high-quality, lean protein – and we’ve already added the seasoning for you! 

Here are some ideas for speedy, healthy meals prepared from scratch.  Just substitute our chicken sausage links or chicken sausage rolls for the pork sausage to save on fat and calories:
