When you think of breakfast meats, you definitely think of sausage. It complements egg sandwiches and French toast like an all-star, but the breakfast meat is often loaded in calories, salt, and fat, giving it a bad rap for those trying to stay healthy.
TRIBALÍ just added Chicken & Apple mini sliders to its roster of clean, frozen home-cooked classics, and we can’t wait to get our hands on a box. These 1.2 oz. mini sliders are made of organic, free-range chicken with tart, tangy apples, sage, thyme, and a bit of nutmeg for a lean way to get 13 grams of protein into your first meal of the day (without a load of sugar or fat). It’s not only Paleo, but Whole30 approved, Non-GMO, and free of gluten, dairy, and soy.
The preferred method to whip these bad boys up is pan fried on a heavy cast iron skillet for 10-12 minutes on medium-low heat. Then we suggest throwing it on whole grain toast with scrambled eggs to keep things balanced.
Before doing so though, we took a deeper dive into the product’s nutrition panel with the help of Amy Shapiro MS, RD, CDN of Real Nutrition NYC. She explained, “TRIBALÍ Foods’ new sausage product does pass my clean food test. With minimal ingredients, family farm-raised organic chicken, and fruit sweetened and flavored with spices, there is nothing I don’t like about this—as long as you stick to the serving size. If you go up to a serving size of protein most people eat at a meal, then the sodium will creep up higher than my recommendation. I say stick to the serving size on the box.”
The serving size here is two patties, so if you stick to that limit, you’ll be eating a healthy morning meal while staying full and energized until lunch.
