With the kids back in school lunch is something I don’t even think of for myself, which often leaves my husband scrambling during his lunch hour. I am so caught up with getting my daily “chores” done before the kids arrive back home, I usually resort to frozen meals or fast food to serve my husband. He usually isn't pleased with this., He, unlike me, hates fast food and frozen meal quickies often leave much to be desired.
Barilla is a brand I’ve always enjoyed from their pasta to sauces. I have always been more than pleased with their fresh ingredients and superior taste. When I heard about Barilla’s newest line of Microwaveable Meals (fresh not frozen) I was hopeful about the possibility of finding a healthier, tastier option to our lunch routine.
Barilla Microwavable Meals give you a whole new way to eat healthy while on-the-go! Making Barilla pasta bowls a great way to incorporate healthier eating into your lunch-time menu; whether it’s just a busy day at home or a long day at the office.
With five varieties available from traditional to whole grain these microwavable meals cook up fresh in just 60 seconds, are free of preservatives, feature 100% natural ingredients and are relatively low in calories; only 320 calories per meal.
Simply vent the sauce, pop your meal in the microwave for 60 seconds, carefully remove the cover – contents are HOT – remove the sauce dish, pour over your pasta and enjoy.
I loved that these meals truly took only 60 seconds in the microwave and tasted as good as freshly made pasta and sauce – I was amazed. Barilla has earned a spot not only on our dinner table, but our lunch table as well.
It’s important for not just the hubby and I to practice eating healthier, even in a rush, but the kids should definitely be as well. They often walk through the door from school super hungry and again, I point them in the direction of the freezer for something quick before dinner. With Barilla meals available to us, I can get them a healthy choice hot and to the table in just 60 seconds. Their stomachs are full, they can concentrate better on homework, and I feel better that they are eating a tasty all natural meal and skipping out on the high calories and preservatives.
