In high school my Biology teacher always told us, if there is one thing I want you to take away from this class, it is that, "THERE IS NO FREE LUNCH!" Oh indeed, Mr. L- you were so freakin right. When WW contacted me and asked me to review there meals, I said yes because there was free lunches at the end of the rainbow. But then I worried after I received them. What if I dont like them? I was kinda of scared to eat them.
Today I tried Garlic Smashed Potatoes and Meatloaf. I heated that baby up in the microwave. When I peeled back the plastic it looked a little alarming, I have to be honest here. But I stirred the smashed potatoes and they began to look perkier. And then I dug in. Yeah, wow, I had nothing to be scared of. It was really delicious. And it was really satisfying to boot. What more could you ask for in a frozen meal? Add a fresh little salad or some other veggies and it is a dang good meal. So first meal out- totally was a thumbs up. 10!
I decided to save the meals for when the kids were at school. This way I could get things done and my meal would already be prepared for me by WW. And let's face it (no, I am not being paid for this) I think Weight Watchers is a great company. I have been in WW myself and feel that their way of eating and losing weight is very sound. I think it is based in practicality, good sense and realistic expectations. It teaches people how to eat- proper nutrition and portion control. That is another nice thing about these frozen meals- is that it is all portioned out. It gives you a framework for other meals.
Okay; so what did I have to pay for my meal maybe Mr. L might ask? I guess exposure on my blog for WW. Is that bad? Heck no. Sometimes paying for your meal can be a pleasant experience.
