Testing Diet Food: Weight Watchers Smart Ones Satisfying Selections

As you all know, dieting is a problem for me.

This may be because I'm a new mom, because I am easily distracted, because I am lazy, or it could simply be because I love chocolate!

Who knows, but it doesn't really matter, because dieting is one thing I really am bad at!

Recently though, I was given the opportunity to test the new Weight Watchers: Smart Ones frozen Meals. These are called Satisfying Selections. The are larger than most diet entrees, even including larger pieces of meat! 

These meals come packages in a bag so that you can either cook them on the stove top or even steam them in the microwave. Pretty handy!

My favorite part: With the amazing taste, you wouldn't believe they have fewer than 400 calories!
If you are a Weight Waters Lady, that is between 8 and 10 points!

They even have 25 or more grams of protein, which is pretty handy for chasing around a toddler!

The varieties include: 
Sesame Chicken
Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo
Ziti with Meatballs and Cheese
Chicken with Broccoli and Cheese
Chicken Teriyaki Stir Fry

That's actually a decent range for a new line!

I went with Sesame Chicken (because I have an unhealthy love of it) and Chicken with Broccoli and Cheese (because I am a picky eater and I don't like Alfredo or Teriyaki- I know, I'm a strange, strange lady)

I was actually really impressed with the taste of these meals. 

Another reason that I'm not a good dieter is this: 
I see diet food and I run away.... 

Once again, this is because I am a picky eater.

I do, however, see myself picking these up when I pick up frozen dinners for the family!

These are definitely meals you should not run away from screaming!
They are definitely at least worth giving them a try!

I am now willing to even give the Alfredo and Teriyaki a try...
If I don't like it, I'll just give it to the Knight, he won't know that its diet!

  1. Just check the sodium stats...that's where most of those meals get you...

  2. very true! If I get too much in a day, I end up with a bad headache
