As I mentioned last week, life has been a little crazy these past couple of weeks. Work has been busy, the bathroom renovation took twice as long as expected, and I’ve had a lingering cold that I just can’t seem to shake. All of this combined has meant that I haven’t really been cooking and we’ve been heavily relying on frozen meals. While I love picking up takeout, it’s not always the healthier or cheapest option, so I do like having some stand-by options in the freezer.
MorningStar Farms has been a favorite of mine since college. Their black bean burgers always have a space in my freezer and the burgers actually make great tacos! So when I heard about the new MorningStar Farms® Veggie Bowls I wanted to give them a try! I actually had to go to a few stores before I was able to find but I ended up finding both the Chik’n Pot Pie and the Italian Sausage Bake here in Richmond at Walmart. They have a few other kinds as well if you’re in different parts of the country.
It’s nestled there in the freezer aisle right next to my beloved black bean burgers and all the other vegetarian foods! I like that these meals have a lot of protein without a ton of calories. The Italian Sausage Bake was our favorite which clocks in at 240 calories and 14g of protein.
I was actually surprised at how many vegetables were in there! These veggie bowls are definitely a super convenient option whether you’re a vegetarian or just looking to eat less meat. It’s always nice to have something you can grab from the freezer and have ready to go in a few minutes.
With all the holiday craziness coming up, I’m making sure my freezer is stocked with options for the busy days ahead!
