That never-ending question – what’s for dinner? – just got a whole lot easier with these great new meal choices from Conagra! Busy parents everywhere strive for nutritious and creative meals that offer a wide variety of ingredients.  And if that’s not enough, we want convenience too!

Healthy Choice Vegetarian Power Bowls Mango Edamame #sponsored #goodeats

Enter Healthy Choice Power Bowls – these come in so many varieties, there is something here to satisfy everyone!  I tried the Mango Edamame Bowl which is one of their vegetarian offerings.  A delightful mix of textures and flavors, this contained mango, edamame, sunflower seeds, tart cherries, a quartet of multigrains, and the list actually goes on!  This was sampled and loved by our two children as well.  They wanted their own bowl!  Power Bowls also come in grain-free (using riced cauliflower), vegan, and even breakfast-themed varieties.  Try one today – although I have to warn you, it will be hard to pick just one! 

Birds Eye Veggie MadeTM Chicken Alfredo #sponsored #goodeats

Another Conagra winner in this category is their Birds Eye Veggie Made single serve bowls.  These might LOOK like pasta bowls but the pasta is made from 100% vegetables.  I’m so lucky in that my kids already like vegetables, but this is a great way to pack even more veggies into the day.  As a food scientist, I feel compelled to reference that Clarence Birdseye (a true visionary) patented the first process for making quick-frozen foods nearly 100 years ago!  Unmistakably, Birds Eye has a long history of satisfying customers and they continue to offer innovative meal solutions like Veggie Made Bowls.  The Chicken Alfredo Bowl contains premium ingredients and is a favorite of mine – comfort food with a veggie boost in every bite – just thinking about this makes me want to have more! 

Evol Cilantro Lime Chicken Burrito #sponsored #goodeats

Bowls are an awesome way to deliver delicious and convenient meals at home or on-the go.  A great burrito takes this to the next level with hand-held convenience.  Evol Cilantro Lime Chicken Burrito contains antibiotic-free chicken, black beans, brown rice, roasted corn, cheddar cheese and authentic salsa.  Nothing artificial here!  I love that Evol’s website, in addition to being informative and funny at the same time, suggests different ways to cook these.  Like, beyond the microwave!  We put ours on the panini press!  Honestly, in the hustle and bustle of everyday life I never would have thought of that.  Check out their website – it’s really different in the best possible way, and you will have a great idea of the range of their bold-flavored variety.

I’m happy to spread the word about these delicious meal options from Conagra.  Back in the mid 80’s, Conagra first launched the Healthy Choice brand and the company continues to recognize consumer’s preferences and values.  The individual servings, unique flavor combinations, quality ingredients, and easy storage/prep/cleanup, are a perfect match-up for my family’s busy lifestyle.
