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
- Vegetarian options are available
- Easy to make in the microwave
- Quick and healthy lunch options
- Their meals are a part of Weight Watchers so you don’t have to worry if you are on a diet or counting points
- Only 8 points on the Weight Watchers scale
- Tastes good
- Small portion size
- 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.)
- 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.
