I am lucky to work from home – it allows me the flexibility to basically cook for myself all day long, if I wanted (hahahahaha at the idea of me cooking all day long, though). But even with that flexibility, I often look for quick and easy because the last thing I want to do during my work day is make a mess in the kitchen or spend a bunch of time making my next meal (I save that kind of work for the weekends, when I can batch cook a bunch of stuff). So, we usually buy frozen meals from the grocery store and eat those for lunch once or twice a week.
And how lucky are we now that we have healthy options like Healthy Choice Morning, as well as Vegan and Vegetarian Power Bowls? This is not the kind of frozen food I grew up eating, y’all!
So, here’s what I look for when I buy a frozen meal: INGREDIENTS. I always read the ingredients, and unfortunately in most packaged food today, there are a wide variety of ingredients that I don’t really understand. So I looked at these ingredients immediately. Here’s what’s inside the Cauliflower Curry vegan bowl (yep – vegan!):
I also had the Pesto and Egg White Scramble morning bowl, which has egg whites and beans served on steel cut oats and quinoa. I love that they’re using unique ingredients and surprising flavors in these convenient bowls.
We’ve been familiar with Healthy Choice products for years, but the morning power bowls, as well as their vegetarian and vegan options are new. And while I’m not a vegetarian, I am what I’d call a “meat minimalist” – I don’t eat a lot of it, and I’m trying (and have been for the last ten years) to eat a ton of veggies. It’s a work in progress, but I’m getting there!
There are lots of different bowls to choose from, and if you like spice, there are several spicy options.
My favorite was the Pesto and Egg White Scramble morning bowl. I bought it at Target (in the frozen breakfast section), and it takes four minutes to heat up in the microwave. You can also buy them online and have them delivered to you, though (I’m alllll about that grocery delivery).
As I’ve grown more conscious of how I eat and the ingredients I put into my body, I really appreciate it when brands like Healthy Choice also shift their consciousness and bring us healthier options like these morning bowls, as well as veggie and vegan bowls. They just make life a little bit easier and I am all about that!
