Healthy Choice Beef Tips Portabello

Looks: The beef looks much dryer (drier?) than pictured, and the mushrooms in the sauce are practically non-existent. The vegetables looks like shrunken versions of themselves, but the potatoes and caramel apple dessert aren’t too far off. I’m feeling generous today, so I’ll give it… 3 out of 5

Taste: The beef turned out to be just as dry as it looked – stringy and tasteless. The potatoes were gummy, and the broccoli was watery. (The carrots were surprisingly ok, with just a little hardness left in them.) The gold-medal winner of this meal was the caramel apple dessert – quite possibly the best tv-dinner-corner-pocket dessert I’ve ever had. It almost redeemed the stringy beef and bland potatoes. 2 out of 5

    Healthy Choice makes some of the best “complete” frozen dinners that you can get for under 320 calories (some as low as 250, including dessert!) and 11oz or more of food. Almost none of the others provide enough food to be satisfying (unless they’re high in calories). Many of the Healthy Choice meals are quite tasty (this one isn’t my favorite, but it’s pretty good and there really are at least two or three decent sized pieces of mushroom) and they’re also not quite as ridiculously high in sodium as a lot of the other brands. When you can get them on sale, they’re also a pretty good deal!

    It looks like dog food. I would have given it a 1/5. (Some do manage to stomach down Alpo)

    Healthy Choice meals are those which I usually don’t indulge in. ]: They always seem icky.
