Ban Boring Meals with Lean Cuisine! *Review & Giveaway!*


I think we can all relate to ‘What’s for dinner (or lunch)? Man, I sure am not in the mood to cook!” I know that I get this way quite a few times. I may not be working full time outside the home, but I am working triple time inside the home. Kids take a lot out of you, that’s for sure! I am watching my intake, counting calories, and trying to make sure I get my meals as the kids allow. Lean Cuisine is here to help. I have heard about Lean Cuisine’s meals, but honestly – I have not tried them… Until now. Oh. My. Gosh! I seriously look forward to my meals now. At LEAN CUISINE®, they believe eating right should never be boring. That’s they have introduced a variety of mouth-watering dishes that offer a great way to stay on track without breaking the bank. Lunch has never been so exciting!


Of all yummy opportunities for me to try out, it is this one. LEAN CUISINE has not only my heart, but my tummy! I have bought some meals in the past and when I opened the box, microwaved it and sat down to eat.. Uh.. the meal looked nothing like the picture on the box. I took some pictures to show you that the food in the Lean Cuisine meals DO look and taste yummy just like the image on the box. Yes.. I have too much time on my hands. 😛



• Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Chicken
• Beef Chow Fun
• Pasta Romano with Bacon
• Linguine Carbonara

STOUFFER’S®, Strombolis and Flatbread Melts are the way to go. The Strombolis feature herb & cheese topped Italian-style crusts filled with seasoned meats and real cheeses. The Flatbread Melts offer seasoned meats, flavorful veggies and real cheeses wrapped in a warm, artisan-style flatbread.



I am a huge nut for Italian food and the Strombolis were so good and tasted so fresh. What a great way to take care of yourself for a meal when you don’t have the time because you are too busy running around taking care of everyone else?

    The Pasta Romano with Bacon sounds yummo !!

  128. Sylvie W. says:

    I am a so so cook, have a tight schedule,and am dieting. Because of this I end up making two big pots of two different “healthy” dishes on Sunday night and eat that for lunch and dinner every single day. This lack of variety can get tedious and makes it difficult to stick to my diet. I add condiments whenever possible to “jazz up” the dishes.

    Now, if I won the Lean Cuisine coupons, my taste buds who be happy boys. Lean Cuisine is healthy so my diet will be on track. They cook quickly so there’s no strain on my schedule. But, happily my less than stellar cooking could be kicked to the curb for five meals as I savor the lovely Lean Cuisine meals. One meal would be the Baked Chicken and another the Glazed Turkey Tenderloins. I’m not sure about the remaining coupons. They have so many choices. I’d take my time and carefully consider.

  129. Debra F says:

    These are perfect to take with me for lunch at school. I only get 20 minutes to eat and these are fast and easy. I love their sesame chicken, but I’d love to try the new Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Chicken. Thanksf or the giveaway.
