I don’t know about you guys but making dinner is a constant struggle for me, especially in a little dorm room where I don’t have access to a kitchen. I miss dinner at the cafeteria almost every night due to practice so I mostly rely on frozen meals. However, It’s hard to find a frozen meal thats actually healthy. Sure some of them say they are healthy, but if you look at the ingredient list you wouldn’t be able to recognize a single word. Not to mention all the artificial flavors , added sugar and sodium and preservatives. Luckily I found a real healthy frozen meal that will satisfy my hunger and taste buds! Al Fresco Chicken Meatballs are amazing! Absolutely no artifical ingredients, fillers and MSG and no preservatives! They come in lots of different tasty flavors and have 60% less fat than the leading beef and pork meatballs! Let me break it down for you:
I was sent four amazing Flavors:
Italian Style Meatballs: Literally the most perfect italian style meatball! So moist and tender and the right amount of basil and mozzeralla flavor! Taste like your old italian grandmother just made them! Perfect over top of roasted eggplant and marinara sauce!
Tomato and Basil Meatballs: Tomato and basil is the perfect combo in these meatballs! So moist flavorful and juicy ! Perfect paired with pasta, spaghetti squash or even by themselves!
Teriyaki Ginger Meatballs: These are so flavorful, like a party in your mouth! Loved the pineapple and ginger flavors; They paired together so nicely! Perfect with some in a stir fry with veggies and pineapple over rice!
Caramelized Onion Meatballs: Man oh man, these were the bomb, delicious flavor bomb that is. Packed with a sweet onion taste thats smoky buy not overpowering. The roasted garlic also adds a nice well rounded flavors! Perfect stuffed in a pita pocket with some tomato, lettuce and a dollop of greek yogurt or sour cream!
Nutrition Facts: The nutrition facts for all meatballs are range from 130-210 calories per 4 meatball serving. The grams of fat is 7-9 grams, 2-3 grams of which is saturated. The sodium is a tad high, 380-500 grams per serving but not bad for a frozen meal. There is a whopping 14-18 grams of protein per serving, a good amount for a quick and easy dinner!
Ingredients: All the ingredients are natural containing no artificial ingredients, no preservatives, no fillers and no MSG. All flavors contain mostly the same amount of ingredients, but differ a little depending on the flavor. The ingredients that are in all of them are skinless chicken meat, spices ( depending on flavor), and any additional ingredients (cheese, veggies, natural flavors, etc.) I’m pretty impressed with natural ingredients list!
I was sent these samples by Al Fresco but I was not paid in any way to do this review, these are always my honest opinion!
