Healthy Choice Review

Every now and then, dinner is a "fend for yourself" ordeal. Everyone is in charge of finding something for themselves. It usually consists of leftovers or freezer meals. (Except Little Man who always requests a grilled cheese.)

One of my standbys are the frozen meals from Healthy Choice. I am such a sucker for the Asian Potstickers. Mmmm.

I love that Healthy Choice meals are filling, without a ton of calories. And, they are so flavorful. Plus, they're quick and effortless. I have my share of days where cooking is the last thing on my mind by 5 o'clock, and pushing a button or two on the microwave is about all I can handle at that point.

According to Healthy Choice, their products are low in calories, saturated fat, and sodium when compared to a typical American meal.

When a company uses a brand name containing the word "healthy," they are held to a higher standard by the Food & Drug Administration. Healthy Choice is the only major brand in that category that can call 100% of their products "healthy," as defined by the FDA.
Recently, Healthy Choice added 11 new entrees to their product line. I had the chance to taste two of the latest Healthy Choice All Natural Entrees. The Roasted Red Pepper Marinara, one of the new vegetarian offerings, combines roasted peppers, garlic, and marinara with whole-grain cavatelli pasta. And, the Tortellini Primavera Parmesan offers a four-cheese tortellini mixed with julienne carrots and red peppers, and tossed with Chardonnay wine and extra virgin olive oil.
Both meals were filling and delicious. While the Asian Potstickers may still continue to be my favorite Healthy Choice standby, both of these meals will be making their way into my freezer again.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Healthy Choice and received a sample to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.

I always feel so guilty when I buy packaged meals. I've never tried this brand before. I might have to grab a few next time I'm in the store! They sound good.
