One of the awesome perks of being a food blogger is trying new foods. I am a member of SocialMoms.com, an amazing social network, and they asked me if I wanted to try out the new Weight Watchers Smart Ones Satisfying Selections Meals. Since I am a Weight Watchers girl, I was thrilled for the opportunity. When I was working outside of my home I almost always brought a Smart Ones meal to work with me everyday. I liked the choices they offer, but I was always still hungry after I had scrapped the dish clean. When I got two of the new Satisfying Selections to try, I honestly wasn’t expecting anything different than the average frozen entree. I was VERY surprised by how good these were! Not only do they have 30% more food in the package, it also has a lot more protein. Instead of just microwaving the meal in a plastic dish, you can actually steam it in the microwave in the bag or cook it in a skillet. Here are the two types I tried:
Sesame Chicken- this actually tasted just like something you would get from your local Chinese takeout restaurant and the portion was really big!
I love the big chunks of breaded chicken and the sauce was slightly spicy!
I also tried the Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo! Huge portion again, delicious creamy sauce and big pieces of grilled chicken. I love the corkscrew pasta!
These meals honestly tasted just like something you would make from scratch. I am definitely going to buy them again.
