Luvo – Great Tasting Healthy Frozen Meals

Luvo has a wide variety of meal options – from breakfast, to entrees, to burritos!  Here’s my review of the few flavors I was able to sample thanks to Luvo and BibRave Pro!

Farmer’s Market Frittata

What it is:  The Farmer’s Market Frittata is made with low-yolk egg and made with spicy garden salsa with poblano chiles and sweet potato and mango hash.

Nutrition information:  The Farmer’s Market Frittata meal is vegetarian and has 4 grams of fiber, 12 grams of protein, 350 mg of sodium, and 250 calories.  It’s a great source of Calcium and Vitamins A and C.

My review:  This was a fantastic meal, by far my favorite of everything that I tried!  I loved the flavors of the sweet potatoes and salsa and the frittata was really tasty. What I really loved was that it didn’t taste like a meal out of the freezer!  It was a great way to start the day on a Monday morning.

Chicken Chili Verde with Polenta and Black Beans

What it is:  This meal features poultry raised antibiotic-free and organic corn polenta with petita seeds.

Nutrition information:  The Chicken Chili Verde meal is nut-free and has 6 grams of fiber, 25 grams of protein, 490 mg of sodium, and 300 calories.  It’s a great source of Vitamin C, Iron, and Calcium.

My review:  I tried out the chicken chili verde for lunch on Monday, and it was pretty good!  I really liked the polenta and the beans were tasty, but I could have done with a little more chicken and a little more spice.

Steel-Cut Oatmeal With Quinoa and Mixed Fruits

Nutrition information:  The Steel-Cut Oatmeal is vegetarian and vegan and has 6 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein, 120 mg of sodium, and 260 calories.  It’s a great source of Vitamin C.

My review:  Unfortunately, the oatmeal with mixed fruit was my least favorite meal.  I liked the combination of oatmeal and quinoa, but I’m not a fan of peaches.  I’m also a little weird in that I don’t really like to eat warm fruit, so I didn’t enjoy the pineapples and cranberries as much as I usually do.  I also didn’t taste much of the coconut almond topping. I would personally stick to buying my usual oatmeal, but I’m sure others who aren’t as picky as me would really enjoy this!

Orange Mango Chicken with Whole Grains, Kale, and Broccoli

Nutrition information:  The Orange Mango Chicken meal is nut-free and has 3 grams of fiber, 17 grams of protein, 450 mg of sodium, and 280 calories.  It’s a great source of Vitamins A and C.

My review:  I had this meal for lunch earlier in the week.  When I took it out of the microwave, the aroma of the mango was delightful! I probably should have cooked it a little bit longer (it was recommended between 4.5 and 6.5 minutes – I chose 5.5 minutes), but the meal was very tasty.  My only complaint is that I would have liked more chicken – I was still pretty hungry after eating this meal.

Red Wine-Braised Beef and Polenta

Nutrition information:  The Red Wine-Braised Beef meal is nut-free and has 4 grams of fiber, 17 grams of protein, 300 mg of sodium, and 250 calories.  It’s a great source of Vitamins A and C.

My review:  This was definitely one of my favorite meals as well!  The beef was so flavorful and the polenta was great.  A few more Brussels sprouts would have made it even better!

Takeaways

I highly recommend giving Luvo meals a try – find out if they’re available at your local grocery store!  Prices range from about $2.99 to $4.99, so they are very affordable!

They have a wide variety of fresh, healthy meals that I enjoyed eating for breakfast and lunch.  Since they are lighter on calories, I would probably not have them for dinner unless I was on a weight loss plan.  Otherwise you may still be hungry!

Check out the Luvo website to find out more about their brand and their products!  Again, thanks so much to Luvo and BibRave Pro for the opportunity to try these out!
