Ever have a bad day? Just found out you need a root canal? Someone blurted out a spoiler for your favorite show? Donated all your “skinny clothes” because you finally accepted that they will never fit again (or even ever come back into fashion)? Somebody put a big dent in your car & didn’t leave a note? Huge zit appeared the day before a blind date? Saw an old photo of yourself that you used to HATE & now you wish you still looked half that good? Tried to twerk & threw your back out?
Need a little comfort food to go with your box of wine but you can’t really cook or you are too exhausted, anyway?
Beyond Meat to the rescue!
Beyond Meat has done it again! Very soon, 4 different, single-serving frozen meals will become available. They might already be available at Whole Foods in the frozen meal aisle. I was lucky enough to find one of each kind and I will talk about the Vegetarian Vietnamese Lemongrass here today.
Zaps in the microwave in between 3-6 minutes. Despite the slightly higher calorie count (compared to the Korean BBQ) – but still only 350 calories – it was lighter than the BBQ dish. I like my food spicy so I added a TBS or two of sambal oelek to this & it was perfect! And for those concerned about protein intake – this has 20 grams!
Non-GMO & 100% vegan – this is a welcome new dish in the convenience food market. I highly recommend it! Vegan, non-GMO & right in the ballpark with Lean Cuisines (et al) with a very low calorie count. Win-win-win!
