Ever have a bad day? Cat peed on your favorite shoes? Splashed at the street corner by a passing car driving through a puddle? Dropped your phone in the toilet? Smiled your toothiest & flirtiest smile at that cute guy at Starbucks only to later discover you have poppy seeds between several teeth? Someone cut you off in the parking lot & then gave YOU the finger? Just found out your new boss is 25 years younger than you? Asked for a cute bob but walked out looking more like Tom Petty than Taylor Swift? Get spaghetti sauce on that white blouse you just splurged on? Bought a 12x magnifying mirror – looked in it – and you are now convinced you can never leave the house again? Trapped behind zombie walkers at Costco? Sharted? It happens.
Need a little comfort food to go with your box of wine but you can’t really cook or you are too exhausted, anyway? Well…
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 Indian Curry here today. The Korean BBQ & Vietnamese Lemongrass & Vegetarian Roasted Sweet Potato Chili were reviewed separately.
Zaps in the microwave in between 3-6 minutes…and a low calorie count with only 300 calories!!! I like my food spicy so I added a TBS or so of spicy chutney to this & it was delightful! And for those concerned about protein intake – this has 21 grams! This dish was filling for 300 calories & I bet meat eaters would never guess it is vegan. I prefer my Indian food with more gravy – the wetter dishes – but despite the lack of a heavy sauce – this really was delicious.
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 but with the added benefit of exotic flavors and – I feel – a denser & more filling product. Win-win-win-win-win!
