With the kids back in school, are you looking for a simple weeknight dinner meal idea? Festival’s got you covered this week with our family-friendly Sweet and Sloppy Joes Eat Well Ad! In order to keep some summertime flare in this comfort food recipe, I’m pairing my Sloppy Joe with this week’s pick, Lipton® Iced Black Tea! One of the things I love most about iced tea is that you can enjoy it a variety of ways; sweetened or unsweetened, flavored or unflavored. Making Lipton Iced Tea is also super simple, even for the whole family! Lipton makes awesome Family Sized Tea Bags, so all you have to do is pour boiling water over the tea bags and brew for 2-5 minutes. Next, just remove the bags, chill or add ice. This way, everyone can sweeten or flavor tea to their personal taste buds. For delicious tea recipes, check out our Eat Well Wednesday blog! Another thing I love about tea is its amazing health benefits! It makes a great alternative to water when you need some hydration with a little more flavor. Tea is also rich in flavonoids, which help maintain normal, heathy heart function. Overall, tea is definitely Dietitian approved! How do you like to flavor your tea?
