There are some nights that even the best laid meal plan fails. The kids may have eaten what I was planning for dinner as yesterday’s snack, the clock strikes 7pm with nothing in the Instant Pot, or I just don’t feel like cooking. Normally, I won’t go for a frozen entree meal, but I’m having more and more nights were cold cereal or oatmeal are looking really good. As luck would have it, I received three (3) different Good Food Made Simple meals to try just as I came down with the flu. I was down for days, but my kids weren’t left to fend for themselves. These meals made eating well simple even if I wasn’t well enough to cook it.
As a mom, I want my family to eat healthy so they have the energy to do any adventure they can dream up. Up until now, frozen entrees weren’t on my radar because it was not something that I considered to be healthy. Good Food Made Simple meals changed my mind.
Good Food Made Simple meals are:
- Made with simple, organic ingredients
- Use humanely raised, antibiotic free meats
- No added hormones
- No artificial flavors
- No artificial ingredients
How do they taste?
I received three different meals to try out; Hatch Chile Mac, Cavatappi Bolognese, and Chicken Enchiladas Verde.
Hatch Chile Mac
The Hatch Chile Mac was my favorite meal. I have to premise that with saying that I like HOT food and I mean spicy not temperature. The Hatch chiles are spicy in this pasta dish. If I were buying chiles at the store, I would consider these Hot and not the mild chiles. This pasta dish reminded me of a Mac and Cheese I had in New Mexico years ago that had a healthy topping of green chile sauce.
Take a look at the ingredient list for the Hatch Chile Mac.
This vegetarian dish has a filling 20 grams of protein from dairy. The sauce is cheesy and really creamy. The pasta was cooked perfectly when I cooked it according to the package directions in the microwave.
Chicken Enchiladas Verde
This chicken dish combines a milder green chile and tomatillo cream sauce, corn tortillas, and white rice. It was much milder than the Hatch Chile Mac. The kids enjoyed this level of heat. The meal had two enchiladas over a bed of organic basmati rice. When the enchiladas are cooked, the cream sauce cooks into the rice. The rice texture was more of a risotto.
Simple pasta dishes like this, when done right, are a hit with my kids. This was one of those meals. It was loaded with bits of vegetables and a beef bolognese sauce. Just like the Hatch Chile Mac, the pasta was cooked perfectly when cooking according to the package directions. The cavatappi pasta was much thicker than the penne in the other dish and as a result it was very filling.
I appreciate that Good Food Made Simple meals are chef-crafted and sourced with organic ingredients whenever possible. They say, “It’s not just better for people and the planet, it results in better tasting meals for you.” I have to totally agree with that and enjoy these delicious meals.
The portion sizes on each of these meals are good alone as a snack or as a part of a full meal when served with a green salad.
