I know right? Why on earth would I feed my kid frozen meals with all those “ingredients” and sodium? Well, I didn’t…and don’t plan to. But no shade if that’s your thing. When I was given the opportunity to try frozen meals by Luvo I was skeptical. I definitely checked out the website before committing. Obviously I was impressed enough to accept the offer and I’m so glad I did!
I was able to read the entire package without pulling out my science dictionary and the nutritional facts didn’t make me feel like I’d need a lifetime prescription for HCTZ post consumption. Was that too much medical jargon? My bad. Anyhoo, after reading the packaging and website I was a bit concerned about taste. Could a freezer meal that’s not terrible for you actually taste good? I had to wait and see.
I was pleasantly surprised by the taste, flavor and meal options. First let’s start with where you can find Luvo. I’m in Baltimore, MD, the only place I found them in my area was Wegman’s. You can click here to find Luvo in your area or have Luvo shipped right to your door!
Now let’s dig into the meals we tried.
Orange Mango Chicken w/whole grains, broccoli and kale – I could taste orange and mango and the chicken looked and tasted like…chicken. Can’t lie, I was skeptical. Meat in frozen meals is usually suspect. This meal has 17g of protein, 36g of whole grains and 1/2 cup of fruits & veggies.
Roasted Cauliflower Mac & Cheese – Mac & cheese is like my all time fave food. To see a healthy spin on it had me excited. This bowl did not disappoint! With 11g of protein, 55g of whole grains and 1/2 cup of veggies I was VERY pleased. This was also a hit with B and Camille.
Chicken Chile Verde w/black beans & polenta – This was pretty good as well. I really liked the polenta! This meal came in a steamer pouch and actually resembled the box after microwaving. This meal also holds 25g of protein and 1/2 of veggies so that was definitely a plus.
Quinoa & Veggie Enchilada Verde – I think this was Camille’s favorite! She was so into the beans and corn. With 10g of protein, 37g of whole grains, 1/2 cup of veggies and only 360mg sodium for the entire bowl I didn’t feel bad sharing with her.
Synopsis: Yes, frozen meals by Luvo are nutritious and taste good. The price point is decent (about $5 per meal) and they are easy to prepare. These meals work great for nights when you don’t feel like cooking or need to feed the fam in a hurry and also to keep at the office for lunch.

Oh yeah…I almost forgot to tell you about the Luvo app on iTunes (I’ll
impatiently wait for an Android app) Use the app to scan barcodes of packaged foods to find out if they’re actually good for you.
