I love to write about things I absolutely LOVE, so I thought I needed to write about one experience I had at BlogHer, last month. I was not required to post about Lean Cuisine Honestly Good meals after the luncheon, but just thought I should, to get the word out on these delicious and healthy meals, because when I LOVE something, I feel like I should share it with you all! :)
I was invited to partake in a Lean Cuisine Luncheon while I was at BlogHer in Chicago on July 26. The luncheon was to introduce Lean Cuisine’s new line of Honestly Good Meals and to familiarize us with the chefs that created the new line of frozen meals.
We were able to hear about their backgrounds in the cooking fields, we were introduced to their passions and why they loved being a part of Lean Cuisine.
I was with a bunch of other bloggers from around the country and we tasted the sauces and grains that would be the ingredients in the new line of Lean Cuisine Honestly Good FROZEN Meals. I really didn’t expect much since I have never really been a HUGE fan of frozen meals. But after they served us lunch…boy was my mind BLOWN.
Our first entree was Pomegranate Chicken. It consisted of a grilled chicken breast filet, whole grain pilaf with currants, green beans, yellow beans, ribbon cut carrots, and a pomegranate glaze.
Now, they didn’t give us the FULL Portion of the meal, I would say about 1/4 – 1/2 of the meal was on our plates for each entree.
I’m not one to eat “fancy”, but I was curious and I was on “vacation”, so I wanted to try new things. Again. MIND BLOWN! I couldn’t believe the flavors! I couldn’t believe they just meshed together SO well! I couldn’t believe I was eating a FROZEN MEAL!!! I am NOT joking, guys. I just couldn’t believe any of it!
The next entree was brought out. Lemongrass Salmon. Coconut-crusted wild caught salmon filet, brown rice with wheatberries, snap peas, orange & yellow carrots, edamame, and ginger lemongrass sauce. Yes, another fancy sounding meal. This was the FIRST TIME EVER that I tried Salmon. And, IT. WAS. AMAZING! Who knew Lemongrass would taste so good with Salmon? Not me… I didn’t even know what the heck lemongrass was! :)
Yes, MIND BLOWN. AGAIN. The flavors, the taste of everything…the vegetables…CRISP!
And, yes, they even treated us to dessert!
Can YOU believe that the yummy Chocolate Cake in this picture is made up of 40% Black Beans??? We were told this AFTER we ate it. Seriously guys…it was AMAZING! NO WAY would I have known that it was made of Black Beans if I wasn’t told! SOOOOO GOOD FOR YOU! I don’t believe they have these for sale as part of the Lean Cuisine Honestly Good meals…but they SO should, because hey…everyone likes a little dessert, right? :)

I left that luncheon feeling amazing. I felt like, wow…a company FINALLY got it. A frozen meal that was SO easy to prepare that didn’t taste like a frozen meal. And, remember…I HATE frozen meals!
