Weight Watcher Wednesday

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.

Glad WW came through on their frozen meals. I'm always a little skeptical about the quality and taste of prefabbed food.

Frozen meals can be better than badly made home made meals! There are lots of incredibly awful cooks in this world.

This is the second great review I seen of the WW meals. I'll have to look for them.
