When I started my weight loss journey, I had no idea how hard it would be but I am finding things that make it easier. I load up on fresh produce every week, drink tons of water, and always keep a few convenience items on hand. When my man wants those super fattening jalapeno stuffed sausages for lunch, I can easily grab a Lean Cuisine dinner and not have regrets later. Of course I don’t JUST have a Lean Cuisine dinner. I also incorporate a small salad with it, whether that consists of Romain lettuce & tomatoes or an apple & orange salad just depends on my mood but I always add another dose of healthiness to the plate. I noticed they have another pizza version, BBQ Recipe Chicken Pizza-Wood Fire Style! YUM!! I have got to find that one for sure!
One of pet peeves about packaged food is not being able to easily find the nutrition value. When I head to the grocery store, I’m shopping for a family of five, usually with a three year old in tote, and a husband that text or calls every few minutes adding to the shopping list. I don’t have time to search a package for the amount of calories-fat grams per serving and that’s just one thing I love about Lean Cuisine. Their new makeover makes it simple to read and understand. Check it out:
By the way, I have NOT tried this one so if you have, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it. You can see how easy it is to see the fat grams, calorie count, and fiber grams. The whole design is fresh and clean and I can see the name and what’s in it easily. Maybe I’m partial to the colors too….some of which remind me of my own blog colors;)
Do you find that packaging makes a difference? And since I’m still trying some of the varieties of Lean Cuisine, I’d love to hear your favorites. As you can see, I had the pizza here (because I’ve had it for a while now and didn’t see it fall behind our beef) but I have a few others to try out like the Roasted Honey Chicken and the Thai-Style Noodles with Chicken.
Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s time for afternoon walk.
P.S. Just like the fresh design on the Lean Cuisine packages, I find that presentation matters so placing my meal on a decorative plate makes it that much more enjoyable. Like I’m fine dining….
