This shop has been compensated Coca-Cola and Walmart. Regardless, all opinions are 100% my own
Before my kiddos started attending school a few years ago, I never imagined how difficult it would be to get dinner on the table and my family together in the same spot at a reasonable dinner time. But with after school sports, homework, Scouts and other after school activities, I am learning that I need to be super prepared before they get home for dinner, which is not always as possible as I would like.
To make family dinners a little more convenient for moms, Coca-Cola and Walmart have come together to create “Effortless Meals” with a variety of meal options – take ‘n bake pizza, flavorful sandwiches and ready-to-serve rotisserie chicken.
For those times that I am not as prepared or have an especially busy day, it’s great to be able to swing by our local Walmart to get something all ready to eat, so we can enjoy what little time we have together to eating a tasty meal as a family.
Our favorite Effortless Meals
Friday Pizza and Family Movie Night
In our house, Friday night is Pizza and Family Movie night. Everyone counts on it after a busy week. Once upon a time, I had time on Fridays to make yummy homemade pizzas. But with after school sports on a Friday, that takes my pizza making time away. So to save myself from the stress of trying to squeeze it in and a large kitchen mess, we swing by the store most Friday nights to grab a yummy pizza we can throw in the oven as soon as we get home.
Grabbing a drink and a pre cut up salad and we have a full plate covered with plenty of food to fill their bellies. All is right in the world when we get our pizza and family movie night!
Easy Soft Tacos
When I get to chose, my favorite easy meal is a Rotisserie chicken. They are always so yummy! Pair it with some tortillas, Queso Fresco and any leftover vegetables, like the salad from the Pizza Night, and you can make a yummy Soft Taco that is ready in minutes for your family. If you really want to make it “effortless”, you put all the ingredients on the table and everyone gets to make their own variations the way they like.
This is my go-to meals when all else fails or we are in a big rush. It’s quick, easy and I rarely get complaints. All you really need is 2 ingredients, tortillas and cheese, but to make it extra yummy, my husband loves it when we throw in leftovers like the Rotisserie chicken. Added protein helps make the hunger stay away longer!
As part of Walmart and CocaCola’s colaboration to create “Efferortless Meals” for busy families with their Marketside meals like their take ‘n bake pizza, flavorful sandwiches and ready-to-serve rotisserie chicken, they have also created an additional way you can earn rewards for your “effortless meal” purchases.

To redeem, make sure you verify you are buying the right Coca-Cola product. There are a large variety of sizes and flavors of drinks to choose from (not only soda, but juice too!) and the Coke Rewards site lists them clearly, but each product also has a “Enter Code mycokerwards.com” marking on the top of the lid to make it easy. Save your lid for the Coke Rewards code on the inside and make sure you save the UPC code from your choice of Marketside food from Walmart. When you go to redeem your points enter them in at the same time by clicking “Enter multiple codes” on the main page.
