Confession– I have yet to master the art of preparing all my own healthy, home-cooked food. It takes a whole lot of time, knowledge, and money to cook balanced meals on your own, and for most of us, we just can’t manage to get it right without the help of a trainer, dietician, nutritionist, personal chef, and/or all of the above. Due to my precarious physical condition right now, health is number one, and it’s important for me (and for everyone, honestly) to find easily-accessible, healthy meal options that help keep us on the right track. I experimented around a bit, and my favorite solution so far has been Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers. Keep reading for my full Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers review!
Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers Review
All Healthy Choice meals are made with real ingredients and no preservatives, so you don’t have to worry about sacrificing taste or freshness, which is huge considering so many frozen meals don’t make the grade. They’re also the only major brand in the frozen meals sections that can call 100% of its products “healthy” (officially approved by the FDA). Some other perks? Unlike other frozen meals, Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers feature a tray-in-tray steam cooking method that guarantees fresh-tasting meals with crisp vegetables and no “plastic-y” aftertaste. Also, I’m super picky about sauces, so I like that you can pour your own to control the flavor a bit. I’ve even started adding some spices and herbs on a few of the more flavorful dishes (honestly for both taste and presentation).
All in all, though, probably my favorite thing about Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers is their convenience factor. They’re a delicious, healthy, and convenient meal option for all budgets and diets. Whether you’re pressed for time at work, drowning in chores or chasing after kids at home, or just perpetually on the go and away from a kitchen, these balanced meals are packed with nutrients and actually leaving me feeling full for a change, which is a challenge in itself.
My favorite meal at the moment is the Chicken Margherita Pasta with Balsamic Vinaigrette Sauce. I’m telling you– paired with a fresh salad and a large glass of water, you’ve got yourself a perfectly balanced meal that your imaginary (or real life) trainer/dietician/yoga instructor would be pretty darn proud of.
And to add to the freshness of your healthy lifestyle, why not invest in some fresh flowers for the table, too? Nothing makes me smile more than a full tummy with a side of spring tulips.
Where to Buy Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers
Look for Healthy Choice Café Steamers in the freezer aisle at grocery stores nationwide. I’ve seen them everywhere from Publix to Walmart to even a Walgreens once. They typically retail for around $3.29, which is the manufacturer’s suggested retail price, so don’t let any of the bigger stores jip you.
Finally, if you try and love these Cafe Steamers as much as I do, check out this easy last-minute date night dinner menu. These frozen meals have become a godsend when I’m hosting guests and have zero time to prep.
