New Goodie: Kashi Frozen Dinners

Have you tried the new Kashi frozen meals yet? I don't rely on frozen meals as a rule but I work 3-11 and if I'm running low on healthy leftovers, I do need a frozen dinner to take along with me. Frozen meals are tricky, they can be full of garbage, expensive and not very satisfying. Leave it to the folks at Kashi to remedy the situation.

The varieties I've tried have proven to be tasty, pretty healthy and just the right amount. Rounded out with a snack pack of almonds and a snack bag of baby carrots or a piece of fruit, and I'm satisfied. My favorite is the Chicken Florentine, it's a really well seasoned and balanced dish with nice flavors and textures. Not like a frozen dinner at all. I also like the Black Bean Mango, Coconut Lemongrass Chicken and the Chicken Pasta Pomodoro.

Like most frozen meals, they are a little high in sodium but not too bad compared to some other brands. If you need a portion controlled yet great tasting meal in a hurry, give them a try. Check out the nutritional information at Kashi's website.

  1. I just tried the Mayan Harvest Bake (I think it's new) and it was very yummy AND vegan-- I'm not a vegan, but I have been trying to cut back on my meat consumption. This has plantains, sweet potatoes, the Kashi grain mix with a tasty, slightly spicy sauce-- all sprinkled with pumpkin seeds. I'm definitely going to try the Chicken Florentine now!

  2. Oooh, the Mayan Harvest Bake sounds delish. I will have to request that variety at my Publix next time. Thanks for stopping by. :)
