I’m a huge fan of Lean Cuisine. I’ve used them in conjunction with a couple of weight loss programs to lose weight pretty quickly but also to teach me how to eat better. As a teacher, I’d bring one to work along with a bag of frozen veggies and heat it all up at lunch. For me, it was the simplest way to track what I ate and learn that being full didn’t mean I needed to bring a small tub of spaghetti and meatballs.
Not saying that’s not delicious though. Just my thighs loved it a bit too much.
Lean Cuisine launched a line called “Honestly Good” that I picked up at Target about a week ago. The Lean Cuisine Honestly Good meals are: Honey Citrus Chicken, Lemongrass Salmon, Pineapple Black Pepper Beef, Plum Ginger Grain-Crusted Fish, Pomegranate Chicken, and Roasted Red Pepper Chicken.
I tried 4 out of the 6 they offer. I have to admit, I usually tend to pick frozen meals that don’t include any kind of meat because a lot of the time the meat is just – boingy. I steer clear of it so I’m not having to pick it out of my meal. With the Honestly Good meals, meat is in each one. So I heated them up, added the sauce, and tried it.
Thankfully, the meat/chicken/fish isn’t anything like that. It’s just normal tasting.
I looked forward to a lunch that was simple and didn’t leave me feeling sluggish all day. I also liked how quick it was, and how you could add your own amount of sauce. I’d buy them again.
