Smart Ones

I was given the opportunity to try Weight Watchers new Smart Ones Satisfying Selections. And now I am about to gloat on them for a bit!!! I was VERY pleasantly surprised - I am not usually a fan of prepackaged meals - ESPECIALLY when they are warmed in the microwave. Now these meals do have two options - stovetop or microwave and so I braved it and warmed mine in the microwave. Talk about easy - put the vented bag in the microwave for 4 and a half minutes and then let sit for 2 more minutes. Then pour onto a plate and eat!

So I chose to try the Chicken with Broccoli and Cheese first - and as I put it out onto my plate I knew I was in trouble. My seven year old said, "I would have chosen that if I had known that was a choice!!" Yep - I ended up sharing and she LOVED it. (As did I!!) This is a very filling portion size, large, tender pieces of meat, wonderful cheese sauce (and just ask my husband - I am NOT always a fan of cheese sauces!!), VERY easy to make, and I came away pleasantly full. I was very impressed with this new product - and I am sharing it around and WILL be buying them again - the price is very reasonable for the size of lunch - you can't beat a meal for under $4.00!!
