When I was pregnant with Savannah, I got really nervous as to what my husband and son would eat while I was in the hospital. I knew we really didn't need to add "dining out" to our list of bills since we would be having the hospital bill, as well as new baby expenses, to take care of. I went and grabbed a few frozen dinners to have on hand for them and was super lucky when my moms group started bringing us meals to eat the first few weeks of adjustment to life with a newborn. I sure do wish that STOUFFER’S ® FIT KITCHEN™ would have been on my radar then, as we have been enjoying the new dishes that are now available.
When we go out of town, daddy isn't always able to take off and go as well. We both know that after working all day, he is not about to come home and cook himself a meal. I have made meals in the past and kept them in the fridge ready to go for him, but lets just take a minute for me to be honest:
I am planning to go out of town with two kids.
I have to pack my stuff and theirs. (I seem to pack the whole house when I have a baby to pack for.)
I just really do not feel like cooking meals to leave behind.
Luckily, I now have Stouffer's to the rescue! We shop at Walmart for basically everything these days and I am happy they carry these products! It is just so easy to get in and out of one store when you have kids, in my opinion! If you want to try out the Stouffer's Fit Kitchen menu items, just head to the freezer section and be ready to let your taste buds enjoy! See? It says convenience meals. It is meant to be CONVENIENT... and they hit the nail on the head!
As I mentioned, they have a few new flavors that they just released, so we were able to stock up! The new flavors offered: STOUFFER’S ® FIT KITCHEN™ Teriyaki Chicken, STOUFFER’S® FIT KITCHEN™ Chicken Poblano Enchilada, STOUFFER’S® FIT KITCHEN™ Sweet and Smoky BBQ Beef and STOUFFER’S® FIT KITCHEN™ Roasted Red Pepper Chicken.
From the looks of what I saw, the meals offer a protein value of between 25-30 grams, depending upon the meal you select. I love that they seem to be branching out and letting our taste buds get a treat as the new flavors are taking it up a notch!
Of course we had to grab one of each to see what would be our go to meal. Packed full of protein, they are encouraging everyone to " Taste Fit to Believe It" and we were up for the challenge.While the reason I want to keep these stocked is to have food options for the hubby when we are out of town, I couldn't let it go by without me trying it as well. Fourth of July called for a day of BBQ, so guess what the hubs took to work that day?
That is right. When you have to work when the world seems to be BBQ'ing, your wife packs you BBQ to go! Stouffers Sweet and Smoky BBQ hit the spot according to him. He couldn't stop going on and on about the flavors in the sauce! (Mental note, keep these stocked, he really seemed to enjoy them!)
After being at the pool all day, I just wanted to come in and cool down. Since I didn't have to cook a meal for the husband, I was able to try a meal out for myself! It didn't help that the Chicken Enchilada kept calling for me to give it a taste! I was really surprised with the flavors in there. It was great and the meal filled me up.
For those that want to keep fit, you will be happy to note that the box also gives you a break down of the nutrition information. I love that these not only taste great, but they have so many options to choose from that even the pickiest of eaters will find a meal they want to try! (Broxton doesn't know it, but he will be eating the Teriyaki Chicken soon. He has been begging for Chinese, so here you go!)
Since we have the Stouffer's Fit Kitchen meals on hand, we have had more time to go out and about exploring. If you have not tried them yet, make sure you do soon!
Out of town trips happen often with a little one, as they want to see them as much as possible. We all know how much babies change from day to day. Having the Stouffer's meals stocked in the freezer lets me know that I can go out of town and my husband can still eat a great meal. Hey! Having a wide selection stocked also lets him pick and choose based upon what he is in the mood for that day! Talk about a win - win situation for all of us!
