Lunch on the go.....






Oh.My.Goodness.  How many times have you been in need of a fast lunch...only to be faced with choices that either take too long, or are horrible for you? Yeah, me too. 

One thing I hate about my lunch breaks is that they are only 30 minutes long. I personally am not a fan of cold lunches every day. If you actually have to take time to make a warm meal it doesn't leave much time to enjoy a break. Well...what if I told you you could have a delicious hot meal that is actually a healthy choice and it would only take 60 seconds to make. Oh yes.

The new Barilla Microwavable Meals are amazing. I was given the chance to try these 5 new meals and I couldn't have been more impressed.


 

 

Making these great meals are so easy. Open the package, peel back the top corner of the package, pop the meal in the microwave for only 60 seconds, hold the sauce tray with one hand and remove the top and then pour sauce on the noodles! 

I couldn't believe that these cook up perfectly in just 60 seconds, and there are no preservatives, 100% natural ingredients and only 320 calories! There are also two whole grain options, one of which you can see in the pictures above. You don't even need to add water... so all you need is a microwave. You can find out more about all 5 meal variations at Barilla.

The packaging of Barilla's meals allow for the meals to be stored at room temperature for up to 12 months with no added preservatives. No worrying about keeping a meal frozen while on your way to work! Barilla meals also keep the sauce separate, which means if you prefer light sauce you can customize how much sauce meets your needs.  

WIN IT!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Barilla and received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
