Review: it's a tall order, but can Healthy Choice keep me sane?

I don't diet.

I like food. I like to eat. I get really cranky and irrational silly if I don't get to eat. (Just ask my mom about the time I freaked out while shopping for my wedding dress. It had nothing to do with the stress of shopping but it had everything to do with her lack of mothering skills and thus the lack of a simple granola bar for the BRIDE to help take the edge off hunger pains). Lesson learned.

It's a good thing Healthy Choice found me.

I work outside of my home a few days a week and these are my choices within walking distance: McDonald's, Jerry's Subs, Pizza Hut, a Chinese restuarant and a Salvadoran restaurant. None of these offer great low-cal choices. Plus, when I AM good (steamed chicken and broccoli no sauce, brown rice) it starts to get expensive. So what usually happends is I wait, and wait, and wait until I'm completely losing my mind from hunger and ripping of people's heads to eat!

Enter Healthy Choice. Thanks to the folks at H.C. for supplying me with a few frozen samples and some coupons so I can stock these at work and avoid turning into Mrs. Hyde.

Here's one I recently tried:

Healthy Choice entree just 250 calories

What I like about Healthy Choice

1. Selection - check out this dizzying selection, and note there is a new line of Cafe Steamers that come in their own microwavable DuoTray Steamcooker.

2. Nutrition - Healthy Choice entrees have a balance of whole grains, fiber, protein, and antioxidants. They are low in fat and saturated fat, have a controlled amount of sodium, and contain no preservatives. I sat in on a Healthy Choice sponsored conference call last year and I remembered learning that Healthy Choice is the ONLY brand that can call 100% of it's products 'healthy' as defined by the FDA.

3. Cost - Healthy Choice entrees have a suggested retail price from $2.00 to $3.29. Can't beat that!

 

What I'm not crazy about with Healthy Choice

I actually left this out above but it's my blog so I can put it here, I really like the taste of Healthy Choice. My only issue is that many of the entrees leave me hungry. I always have to supplement these with a side salad, piece of fruit, and a chocolate chip cookie cup of tea with exactly one tablespoon of honey.

Have you tried Healthy Choice lately?
