Review and Coupon: Smart Ones Santa Fe Style Rice & Beans

This was my first time trying a Weight Watchers Smart Ones meal. Although, I’ve seen Smart Ones frozen meals in the store, I was too skeptical to try a box, because I didn’t think the meal would be healthy or taste good. However, after I tried Smart Ones Sante Fe Style Rice & Beans and I was pleasantly surprised. I chose a meal that I liked and was similar to something I would make for myself.

What I Like Most about SmartOnes

  1. Vegetarian options are available
  2. Easy to make in the microwave
  3. Quick and healthy lunch options
  4. Their meals are a part of Weight Watchers so you don’t have to worry if you are on a diet or counting points
  5. Only 8 points on the Weight Watchers scale
  6. Tastes good
  7. Small portion size
  8. Almost filling. (I generally, eat more calories because my meals are usually not processed and they do not contain meat so it takes a little more food to fill me up.)
  9. Would I buy it again? Yes, I thought it was pretty good so I would purchase it again; especially because it is easy to eat while I am busy. Although this was out of my element and not something I would normally purchase I liked it.

What comes in the box Description:

Santa Fe Style Rice & Beans

Spicy rice & beans with a zesty green chile & sour cream sauce, topped with cheddar cheese.
