I rarely write product reviews anymore. But every once in a while, I stumble upon a product that makes gluten free life much better. I want to preface this review by saying that I cook ALOT at my house. We try not to eat too many processed foods. However, I miss frozen dinners.
By not eating processed foods, I basically took away the ability to purchase a pre-made meal, store it in the freezer and pop it in the microwave or toaster oven for a quick fix for lunch or dinner. That being said, I still make extras and freeze them and we reheat them. But it isn’t the same as buying convenience at the store. I just stumbled upon a solution to my dilemma.
The other day I was in Whole Foods Market and the man stocking the freezer section pointed out a new gluten free frozen product line. He said that he had tried a few of the items and he really liked them. I explained that I don’t usually buy frozen meals and he encouraged me to try them and bring them back if I didn’t approve.
I left with three Evol Bowls. They are eco-friendly frozen meals – from the ingredients to the packaging. And they taste great!
So far I have tried the Teriyaki Chicken, Bean and Cheese Enchilada, and the Fire Grilled Steak Bowls. There is also a Chicken Enchilada Bowl.
The Fire Grilled Steak Bowl is my favorite. It tastes just like an entree I make at home. The Bean and Cheese Enchilada was good but I didn’t think it was quite as tasty as the Fire Grilled Steak. And the Teriyaki Chicken looked as though I would need to add more teriyaki sauce, but it was perfect just the way they made it.
There is a great story behind the company too!
If these bowls are carried in your stores, check them out for those days or nights when you don’t feel like cooking – but you want something that is healthy and won’t destroy the environment.
