One frozen lunch thats not too bad…

Gluten Free, Nut Free

Typically I will take the time to make myself a healthy lunch to bring to work. But of course there are always those days that I am rushing out the door and just don’t have time to prepare something nutritious. Today was one of those busy mornings, and lucky for me I plan ahead and keep my freezer stocked with some gluten free frozen meals that I can take with I’m strapped for time. Today I tried Garden Lites Roasted Vegetable Souffle for the first time. I have to say I wasn’t disappointed.

Taste/ Texture/Appeal: Although I think I would have preferred to bake the souffle in the oven, I was at work and stuck with only a microwave so it was a little soggier than I had hoped. However, it looked really yummy (nice and brown on top!), and it tasted pretty good! The only thing I would change is the hint of sweetness from the sugar, which to me didn’t seem necessary. But I love the taste of veggies! So maybe that’s why!

Nutrition: I loved the fact that this product is all natural, containing only carrots, spinach, broccoli, egg whites, potato, zucchini, red peppers, corn starch, eggs, rice flour, and natural spices. One souffle only has 140 calories. its low fat, has 9 grams of protein, and is loaded with vitamin A. The only thing that would make this product healthier is if there was less sodium and a little less sugar.

What’s your typical “go to” meal when your in a hurry?
