Making One of My Favorite Meals While Being #Carton Smart!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Carton Smart for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

As Christmas approaches I am soooo busy! I am trying my hardest to get my house in order for guests, and doing my Christmas shopping! Add that to two wild little boys, school and school functions, boy scouts, a husband in school full time with clinicals and work, this blog and my day job you can say I am ran pretty ragged. I try my best to make home cooked meals but sometimes I have to take shortcuts to save time.
One of my favorite go-to meals when I am feeling stressed is throwing meatballs in the crockpot with chili sauce, and cranberry sauce! This makes a fantastic sweet and salty main course for our dinners! Both of my boys think it is heavenly!

I never gave it a whole lot of thought, but truthfully you can find all of these products in cartons that can be recycled and reused! You can still have the delicious foods you are used to, but you can also be kind to our environment! Pacific Natural Foods makes it easy for you! Not only are you being kind to the only world we have to live in, but the foods are yummy and free of many of the chemicals that are found in our traditional prepackaged foods in the grocery store! They also steer clear of the most common allergen producing foods.
Would you like to know more about how cartons or tetra packs are good for the environment?
Tetra Packs use 1/3 of the packaging of cans, they are easy to store and open! (this is true!! I loved how easy the cranberry sauce was to open compared to canned) Because they are recyclable, they create 60% less landfill waste. They are also reclosable so you can place it in the fridge and save the rest for later!
