When I think of frozen meals, my first thought isn’t one of being healthy or tasty for that matter. Instead those thoughts are of processed foods and wondering if I have enough salt in the shaker to add some flavor. To great surprise Luvo is a company bringing new meaning to frozen foods through their “3-2-none” philosophy.
So what actually is the “3-2-none” philosophy and what is it based on? Luvo’s goal is to make it easy for people to eat for optimal health so they can reduce the burden of preventable health conditions. Based on studies they have developed the “3-2-none” philosophy.
- 3 – The right balance of protein, whole grains, and veggies
- 2 – Not too much Sodium or Added Sugar
- None – No artifical colors, flavors or sweetners
Now when I look at the above philosophy, which seems like a no brainer, I wonder will these really have a flavorful taste and please my palate? Luckily I already know the answer to that question since I’ve tried Luvo meals in the past. Actually you can read my review here.
This time around I had the option of trying out their online ordering process and select the meals that I wanted. Note Luvo are carried in grocery stores as well, but the online option gives you the opportunity to select meals that might be stocked by your local retailers. The online ordering process is simple and the delivery process is seamless. You receive shipping updates as your meals are prepared, shipped and delivered!!! If you are unfamiliar with Luvo they carry a variety of meals (steam in pouch meals, bowls, and planted power bowls). For this shipment I focused my order on the bowls and planted power bowls. Before I knew it my meals arrived and it was time to start focusing on easy, healthy and fast meals for lunch and dinner.
Each meal provides a healthy portion, because over indulging is not a good thing, although on many occassions I found myself wanting to warm up another meal, due to them being that good. Preparation is easy, as they only take 4-5 minutes in a microwave before you can start consuming. Mmmm. What I can tell you is that the aroma while the meal is cooking is amazing. The end product tastes even better and each meal has been flavorful. I tried several different meals, with some repeats, as other BibRave Pros have commented on their favorites. So instead of breaking down and reviewing each of the 12 meals I ordered I will focus on my favorites.
Roasted Cauliflower Mac & Cheese:
I am a fan of Cauliflower and Mac & Cheese as separate items, so this could only be great and one of my favorites, right? Well this meal did not disappoint and at only 340 calories I couldn’t complain. The only thing I would like to see more of in the meal is more cauliflower. Good flavor and let me smiling.
Kale Ricotta Ravoli
As a kid I remember constantly eating ravoli, which as you can suspect, has kept me from eating it ever since. I am a huge fan of Kale, so ravoli was about to be on the menu again. The consistency of the ravoli and kale was excellent. I truly enjoyed the addition of whole vegetables in this meal. I had this meal on a sluggish day and felt energized and ready for a run immediately after.
Hawaiian Un-Fried Rice
Anytime you see forbidden you think…not good. Well this meal from Luvo was very filling. All of the ingredients are favorites and in good abundance. The lower sodium levels that you wouldn’t expect to see in a frozen meal. Add in the cup of vegetables, plant protein, and whole grains and you have a complete meal. The hint of pineapple added that sweet flavor I like with my rice. Luvo out did themselves with this one. This one smelled so good I didn’t snap a picture.
In today’s fast paced world and limited amount of time to prepare healthy meals. Luvo has provided it’s consumers with an option of countering the fast paced world with a fast and healthy meal. I have taken these with me on work trips, that reduces the need for me to select unhealthy chocies. As for price, the Luvo meals are competively priced ($6)especially with the ingredients being used. Add in the fact that you don’t even need to head to your local grocery to purchase these is great. The online ordering option allows you to select your favorite meals and have them delivered to your door.
