Frozen Food: Trial and Error

It's been a while since I've posted about this topic, so here we go, again.

Just to recap............ I have many days (like, today) where I look at the clock, see it's 3pm, and realize that I haven't eaten lunch. As I tend to skip breakfast (bad, I know), I have to eat something or I'll totally binge at dinner.

Enter, frozen meals. Can we all agree that there is an element of "I really hope this tastes good and not like crap." to frozen food?

My preferred brand is Healthy Choice. If you're interested, you can check out my previous posts here and here.

Anyway..... here's the new items I've tried, lately.

It's in their "Complete Meal" catagory. As I've previously discussed, that can be a fallacy if you're not two.

However, this is a "Complete Meal" that actually seems like one. Everything was SUPER tasty and there was enough food that I felt I'd actually eaten a meal.

I would not feed this to my worst enemy's dog.

Seriously, I found it to be THAT repulsive. I've eaten a couple of these things that I wasn't crazy about, but I would finish them. I haven't necessarily tried some of them again, but I did finish them.

Not this crap. I got about three bites in and I literally had to wipe my tongue with a napkin.

If you've tried this and like it........... go ahead. There's plenty of mine at the store, lol.

I really enjoyed this!!! It's basically the same exact ingredients that are in the Beef Pot Roast meal I tried, earlier. However, it's way more substantial. So, I was getting the tastiness AND the substance.

Overall, I've found that the "Cafe Steamers" have more food in them.... just a note.

This was really good. It's one of their newer items and I will most certainly be adding this to the "always get anytime I'm making a frozen meal run" group.

The pasta is almost an angel-hair pasta, which is a nice change of pace. Also, the sauce is a yummy flavor that I can't quite describe, but would definitely recommend.

Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Healthy Choice or other brands?

Gina-yep, laughter is the best sound! I hope you are having a lovely week. Thank you for your comment--I had really hard day today and it was very nice of you to come to my blog! I only eat frozen pizza because I need to gain weight, but my husband eats the Lean Cuisines as he is doing weight watchers and he actually really likes some of them. I have tried a few and I really liked them!
