Listen, the truth is sometimes my week is just too busy to cook no matter how well I plan or how much I want to. But, I know myself well enough to know that if I don’t have some sort of game plan to stay on the healthy train I’ll be pulling into that fast food line and completely throwing my 2018 healthy initiatives in the garbage.  So my solution during those hectic weeks where I need to take my time back; frozen meals with a fresh kick.  

Yep, I said it, frozen meals.  But not the overly processed, full of salt, not-real-food, frozen meals of the past. I’m talking about Lightlife’s new plant-based frozen line.  Recently while shopping at my local Kroger, I stopped dead in my tracks when I spied that Lightlife logo shining through those frozen glass doors.  

If you remember I’m a big Lightlife fan, making vegan slaw dogs last summer.  For more than 30 years, Lightlife has been on a mission to provide quality vegetarian and plant-based foods prepared in the most healthy and sustainable manner. And you don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy Lightlife.  

I discovered Lightlife when I was meat-free, and still eat it now even not as a vegetarian it’s that good! By choosing to eat vegetarian just one meal a week you can have a dramatically positive effect on your overall health and the health of the environment. Win, win!

I of course had to try all of the Lightlife frozen meals. While I loved them all the four I kept coming back to where the Veggie Fritters, Southwestern Quinoa Black Bean Bowl, Wild Mushroom Ravioli, and Veggie “Sausage” Ravioli.  Now, these meals are all great on their own, but I like to jazz them up a bit by adding a fresh kick.  What’s a fresh kick you ask? Well it’s fresh ingredients that enhance the meal, but don’t take up any additional time.  You can prep them while your meal is turning away in the microwave, boiling on the stovetop, or toasting in the toaster oven.

For example, fresh dill and homemade tzatziki dipping sauce for the Veggie Fritters.  Organic tomato sauce and fresh chopped mushrooms for the ravioli.  And for the Southwestern Quinoa Black Bean Bowl I find topping it with fresh cilantro, chopped jalapeƱos, and a squeeze of lime provides that extra heat I’m always looking for.  These easy, fresh add ons, are the perfect way to make your frozen meal feel home cooked.

So now that you know it’s possible to get healthy, great tasting frozen meals I’ve got more good news.  Lightlife is doing a major sweepstakes through the month of February giving away 369 frozen meals! Yep, you heard right…369 meals! That’s meals for an entire year! Next time you go grocery shopping at Kroger, Earth Fare or Sprouts, pick up some Lightlife frozen items. Take a photo of them at home using #HeatWithPride and #Sweepstakes and tag @Lightlife to enter. Easy as that!

I challenge you this year to join me in being a little kinder to our bodies, our environment, and ourselves.  Take some of your time back, and #heatwithpride! Truly, MKR
