As you all know, I've been trying to lose a little holiday weight gain
lately. I'm not exactly sure how much I gained because I threw out that
evil, lying scale! But let's just say that I'm thinking stretchy pants
shouldn't feel that tight. So, we're eating lighter these days and
choosing more salads and less desserts.
We're not really fast food or take-out people anyway but when you get
home late, tired and hungry it can be so easy to eat something unhealthy
rather than take the time to cook. So, when the folks at Lean Cuisine
asked me to review their new Chef's Pick line of products, it seemed
like perfect timing.
I chose the lemon chicken which is lightly breaded white
meat chicken in a sweet lemon sauce with broccoli, red peppers and
oregano white rice. And the best part - only 280 calories! I followed
the microwave instructions and they were spot on. So within just a few
minutes, I had a light and tasty dinner. The chicken was remarkably tender and the sauce was complex and very flavorful. And with so few calories, I
had enough leeway to add a generous salad and still stay on track with
my healthy eating.
I have partnered with Lean Cuisine through DailyBuzz Food to help promote their new line of Chef's Pick products. I have been compensated for my time commitment to work with this product. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments. Thank you Lean Cuisine!
I really began to appreciate frozen meals when I got pregnant. I didn't want to cook at all! This looks yummy, my friend!ReplyDelete
Nice review. We don't eat prepared meals much but it is nice to know that when we need them, there are some good options available. Have a lovely and warm weekend Anita--we are freezing here in DC..LOLReplyDelete
Great review. We don't do prepared meals for dinner much, but, I eat Lean Cuisine for lunch alot. Tasty, low cal and quick...makes it perfect.ReplyDelete
Have a good weekend :)
I never eat prepared meals but it's nice to know these are out there for when I'm in a pinch!ReplyDelete
I love this idea! And since I think you have a very sophisticated palate, I'm going to take your word for it and try some. I don't know about your work place but in ours, about 11 AM everyday there is this very distinct smell coming from the break room from the 10 Lean Cuisine dinners all the ladies are cooking. 280 calories would fit into the very limited amount of calories I must restrict myself to once again in February. And I love lemon chicken! Thanks!ReplyDelete
Anita that looks delicious. I love all the new meals!ReplyDelete
My coworker has been raving out this line of Lean Cuisine. We're both Weight Watchers fans and they have the points for their meals calculated. It's very helpful. They have decent portion sizes too. Keep up the good work! My husband and I have lost a few pounds ourselves in the past few months. We both feel much better. :)ReplyDelete
Very nice review. I'm a bit hesitant about prepackaged meals as well, but will give this a try.ReplyDelete
