Okay so last week’s frozen meal was so good, I doubt anything could top it. I actually said to the bf when grocery shopping that I didn’t even want to try a different meal- because I’d just end up disappointed. But I knew I had to try out a few more for you guys so you’re getting a proper scope at the good, bad and ugly of frozen dinners.
However, I may have just hit the jackpot baby, cause look what I got my hands on.
And no, it’s not deja vu! It’s actually different from last week’s meal. What’s better than the mushroom and pumpkin risotto from last week? Well something that’s basically the same, except slightly bigger and with more vegetables! I don’t mean more vegetables as in they packed more in there (unfortunately), but the fact that they used sweet potato this time (instead of mushrooms) means when I add my usual mixed vegies and mushys to the dish I’m increasing the variety and not just the quantity. Do we follow? Haha.
The taste? Just as good as last week. Plenty of sauce, not too creamy or winey and a pleasant risotto-y type taste. I am a tad disappointed with the lack of pumpkin taste still, as well as the absence of the distinct sweet potato taste. I guess the sauce just sort of smoothers every other taste out haha, which is not necessarily a bad thing since the sauce is pretty darn tasty… but I am a vegie girl, through and through.
Because of the slightly bigger serving size the nutritional information is slightly higher than last week’s meal but it is still very low calorie. But who really cares about calories right? It’s about good nutrition and balance. And I think this sort of meal would fit in perfectly. A delicious and healthy frozen dinner meal? I’ll take it! This meal gets a 9.5/10, because we can’t be perfect right? I mean there’s still plenty of room for improvement: Lower sodium, higher protein- you get the drift
How often do you eat frozen meals? Have you ever tried this or another weight watcher’s meal?
