I have had my fair share of on-the-go microwave meals, what busy young professional hasn’t?
My experience is rarely great, I am not usually a fan of microwave meals. Most of the time I would say microwave meals are dry, bland and cardboard-like. Well, not the meals I tried from Healthy Choice! The Unwrapped Burrito Bowl is fantastic!
Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers
Healthy Choice is one of the top players in healthy, wholesome, quick microwave meals. They are actually the ONLY major brand in it’s category to be able to say 100% of their products are “healthy” by the FDA. They have a wide selection of products, including the popular Cafe Steamer meals – from Barbeque Seasoned Steak and Red Potatoes to Crustless Chicken Pot Pie. The Healthy Choice meals have a variety of options including gluten free, vegetarian and whole wheat. But the product line doesn’t stop there, they have recently added Simply Cafe Steamers and Simple Cafe Steamers with Organic Ingredients.
Simply Cafe Steamers with Organic Ingredients
Healthy Choice expanded the Simply Cafe Steamers to include four new meals that have USDA-certified organic ingredients. The ingredients in these meals are all non-GMO, natural and include nothing artificial. The Healthy Choice Simply Cafe Steamers are prepared with techniques to enhance the food’s natural flavors, without adding artificial anything. Part of this process to keep the meals fresh is that the food is microwaved in a special steaming basket which unlocks the flavor and freshness in the dishes.
The Organic Ingredient Dishes Include:
- Creamy Spinach & Tomato Linguine
- Sweet & Spicy Asian-Style Noodle Bowl
- Three Cheese Tortellini
- Unwrapped Burrito Bowl
My Thoughts On Healthy Choice Simply Cafe Steamers
I am highly impressed with the dedication to organic ingredients – that rocks. Who would have thought there would be microwave meals that actually have readable, clear cut, simple ingredients? Quick meals that have healthy ingredients is NOT what I think of when I think frozen microwave meals. Well, Healthy Choice Simply Cafe Steamers has sure changed my view on microwave meals!
I loved the Unwrapped Burrito Bowl with organic black and pinto beans! The flavors of the red bell peppers, scallions and the fire roasted corn and spicy tomatillo sauce were fresh and exciting. The meal was cooked perfectly in just a few minutes! The steam basket is a great touch, I could tell the difference in this meal process – the dish retained flavor and moisture too – no cardboard here!
The quality is really quite superior for such a quick and handy meal!
