Frozen Indulgence

I tried one of my new grocery store finds for lunch today –

Nick loves the Kashi meals, but they’re normally 4.99 each (and that’s the cheapest I can find them!), so I only buy them when they’re on sale and/or I have a coupon.

Luckily, both happened this weekend! Kroger had a Buy 1 Get 1 Free sale on the frozen Kashi meals, and I had 2 coupons to use for $1 each.

I ended up with 4 meals: 2 for Nick, 2 for me. And I only paid $7 for all 4 with the sale + coupons :)

I picked this one out to try, and am so glad I did.

I’m not a big fan of frozen meals with chicken (it always has such a strange texture), but I was happy to try this veggie lasagna. The stats are great, and the ingredient list on the Kashi meals is pretty impressive, too.

They also have new boxes that are made of 100% recycled paperboard!

For not being a homemade pasta bake, it was delicious!

It also looked MUCH bigger once I moved it to a plate.

I loved that the veggies weren’t so cooked that they had no texture left. And the tomato basil sauce was so light and flavorful – it made me really excited for summer. I can’t wait for fresh tomatoes!

I paired it with some green beans for a quick and easy lunch.

And, after I’m done eating, I’m off for the second part of my working-from-home lunch routine:

Taking Maggie for a walk.

She loves it, and it gets me out of the house for a little while –  it’s good for both of us!

  1. Yum.. I love kashi frozen meals. Well I love Kashi in general. And I’ve wanted to try that particular one for a while now, looks great!
    My favorite frozen meal though is Annie’s veggie lasagna.. to die for!

  2. I have never tried Kashi’s frozen meals, but they sound delicious. I also love Annie’s lasagna. In fact, I think I’ll have one for lunch today…. :)

    Happy Monday!

  3. I like frozen sausages for some quick and tasty meat.

  4. I love the Kashi frozen meals, just not the price tag. For frozen things I usually go for veggie burgers or Lean Cuisines- I’m pretty picky about which LC’s I’ll eat though

  5. I love Kashi meals but they are a definite $ splurge. My favorite favorite is Amy’s mac and cheese.

  6. I’ve never seen that one before! It sounds amazing. I’ll keep my open for it!

  7. Amy’s lasagnsa

  8. I’m a big fan of Amy’s frozen burritos, but they can also be pretty pricey!

  9. I love the birdseye things with sauce already. Especially the asian one.

  10. I’ve seen those, but they are RARELY on sale by me. I’d have to say Banquet Fried Chicken is me and the hubs guilty frozen food pleasure – definitely not good for you, but oh so good! :D

  11. I used to love the Linda McCartney frozen vegetarian meals, especially the butternut squash. Yum!

  12. This is a great Kashi meal, but you must try the Mayan Harvest Bake. It’s unbelievable!!!!

  13. Kashi’s meals are a bit overpriced in my opinion ;-)

    My favorite frozen meal is by far the pizza! I eat half for dinner and the other half for lunch. Easy and tasty.

  14. I am not a fan of frozen meals, but I have to say that does look tasty! What a super steal with the coupons and the sale–love it!

  15. Kashi frozen meals are my favorite. Kashi is pretty much one of my favorite brands ever. They are expensive, though. You got a great deal with the BOGO!
