I work at home and while I love to cook, I can’t get all gourmet when I have to make a deadline and it’s no fun to cook my own lunch .. Plus, I am trying to be very healthy. So when LYFE Kitchen contacted me to review their line, I was intrigued. Healthy, packaged food? Since these words don’t always go together, I had to test it and see for myself.
LYFE stands for “Love Your Food Everyday “. The company was founded on this idea, “People should love their food—how it tastes, what it does for their health, and how it supports a more sustainable planet.” Every LYFE Kitchen dish is free of artificial ingredients and trans fat, low in sodium, and offers with environmentally friendly packaging. LYFE Kitchen meals are less than 500 calories and contain less than 500 mg of sodium in each entrée. You prepare them in your microwave or oven in LYFE’s exclusive, patent-pending paper pouch – similar to the classic French en papillote technique. You have the option to microwave it or cook it in your oven.
We tested out several meals, but the Orange Mango Chicken and Chicken Chile Verde were my favorites. In fact, they were downright delicious!
Since spicy foods really don’t agree with me, I was happy that the Chicken Chile Verde wasn’t that spicy — but it was very filling.
I honestly didn’t expect LYFE Kitchen’s meals to be this yummy.. The meals are packed with protein and fiber and the calories are very low for a prepared meal. I also liked that if if you are dairy sensitive (like I am now) or gluten free, nut free, vegan or vegetarian — LYFE Kitchen has options. The nutritional info is clearly marked, so if you are gluten free, you’ll have no problem knowing if the LYFE Kitchen meal you’re looking at is also gluten free. As I am now very dairy sensitive, I appreciate companies clearly letting their consumers know what’s in their meals.
Thank you to LYFE Kitchen for sending these yummy meals for me to test out. I look forward to seeing this in my grocer’s freezer. I was not compensated for this review.
