I've been trying out different types of meals that my stomach can handle and I was asked to try the new Smart Ones meals from Weight Watchers. Rice is one of the better things you can have during pregnancy that doesn't cause nausea. They are located in the freezer aisle with the other bagged dinners. Unlike the other frozen dinners they are single serve portions. I was pleased to see that the price wasn't outrageous. The portion of the Smart Ones meals was a great deal for the price. Sometimes I feel like the microwavable meals just leave you feeling hungry and unsatisfied.
I found that the Smart Ones portions were a great size for me as well and I even had some left over for my daughter to share with me. She's a picky eater so getting her to eat a little of something I like is great news. Covering it in Cheese and making sure her favorite vegetables are in it is a great way to help that also.
I've been on a broccoli and cheese kick lately so I got the Broccoli Cheese Chicken and Rice one along with the Teriyaki Chicken. Both were fantastic and didn't lack any flavor. I hate bland foods and this was far from it. The Broccoli and Chicken chunks were a little large and I had to cut them in half to eat them. The were plenty of vegetables in the Teriyaki Chicken kind. I'm a big fan of vegetables.
They were super easy to make. We ate them for a quick lunch during our busy day of planning JaMonkey's upcoming Birthday! A meal that really hit the spot. Plus I don't feel guilty about eating it because it was low in calories. Since I haven't eaten a lot of meat lately the small amounts of chicken in these meals were perfect to give me enough protein to boost my energy back up. It's a happy change.
JaMonkey and I could get used to these meals during the day. When my husband has to have his stinky beans for dinner I can just pop one of these in the microwave to enjoy my own meal.
Check out all the great flavors that they have. Its a great quick and easy meal! Just the way I like it. Because cooking makes me queasy right now…lol This pregnancy is killing my nose. Thankfully Smart ones is doing me right!
