Healthy Choice Fresh Mixers Ziti and Meat Sauce

by Amber
(Owatonna Minnesota, USA)

This is my first time seeing Healthy Choice Fresh Mixers in my grocery store. I thought it looked like a decent portion size, and contained only 6g of fat and 340 calories. It was a little more expensive than my usual frozen meals, but it was new, so I grabbed it.


I brought it to work to test it out. First observation= the outer safety seal is tough to get off. I had to go get a scissor and pry it from the container.

This meal comes with a main bowl, a removable meat sauce bowl, and a strainer lid. you are to remove the meat sauce, fill the bowl with water to the fill line, and heat for 3.5 minutes. This is already taking just as long as my usual frozen dinners, and I still have more steps to follow.

When the pasta is done, you heat the meat sauce for 30 seconds and strain the pasta with the snap on strainer. the handles weren't very big, so boiling water ended up scaling my fingertips.

When I poured on the meat sauce, it had the foul smell of the red sauce on NutriSystem meals. (The reason why I quit NutriSystem!)

After you have the meal assembled, you need to mix in the sauce. So maybe 10 minutes after I decided to eat, I finally had a meal that was not even appetizing. I pushed forward, and found the sauce to be rather spicy for my bland "Meat & potatoes" pallet.

The positives: You get plenty of food for a diet meal; and you could probably re-use the strainer bowl for something- maybe a sandbox toy.

The negatives: The price, the taste, the preparation.

Would I buy this product again? No. I will save a dollar and go back to the wide variety of frozen meals that take half as long to make and taste great.

too hard to open
by: Anonymous

YOur healthy choice mixers are tasty and so nice to just toss in my bag for work. However, opening the container is very difficult. Removing that top film is nearly impossible for arthritic fingers. I hope someone can redesign this. thank you

Delicious
by: Anonymous

ABSOLUTELY delicious, tastes like homemade and very decent portion size for the calories. PERFECT for dieters, for instance those on weight watchers because calories are anywhere from 320 to 380(5-8 weight watcher points) and are actually very filling because of all the fiber.
Also, one of easiest microwave meals to make, takes 4 minutes after letting cool to eat. Not sure about the dexterity of one of the previous posters.

I just tried the southwest chicken one, my grocery store was out of any of the normal pasta dishes.
310 calories 2.5g fat and 1g sat. fat It was delicious! I would get this again if it weren't for the price! I'm planning on keeping the container to make my own pasta in it next time! ^_^

save the container
by: lindsay

prepare a serving of pasta in it later. I think the container is the best part of the meal. The sauce was a little too zesty for me.

Loved it

I absolutely love the meals. They are filling and they taste great. The only thing I can think about the original poster is that she is looking for something to gripe about.

GOOD

I loved it. It seemed bigger than a frozen meal dinner! A little more work but I really enjoyed it! It is nice to have a meal but no have to freeze it sometimes I forget to put my meal in freezer when I ge to work then end up eating in caferteria and making a "bad" choice. This is much better> I am especially picky about the meat in some dishes but this was great!

Perfect!
by: Anonymous

I actually Loved the meal!! Yes it was hard for the plastic to open it. I too had to open it with a knife. Yes it was a bit spicy but for MY "Meat & Potatoes" pallet I loved it! I found that it was not that much more for this meal vs. a frozen meal. This meal had better nutrition than what normal frozen meals have.
Really you have to try it for yourself!
Would I buy it again YES!!!
