Eating is cool. Eating healthy food is even cooler. Eating healthy meals that steam cook in about 5 minutes is the coolest.
This is how I feel about Luvo meals. They seriously rock.
Luvo is a nutritious line of food, which includes steam pouch entrees, grain bowls, and breakfast options. They are packed full of flavor and so easy to prepare.
What makes them so great? The company philosophy says it all: Food should be delicious, nutritious and come from real ingredients. In my opinion, Luvo really lives up to its name.
I was again able to sample Luvo meals and this time I had about 4 dish options of the steam pouch line. This included the Orange Mango Chicken, Chicken Enchiladas, Kale Ricotta Ravioli and Chicken Chili Verde. All entrees were delicious, and tasted as described on the package. I was so surprised with the amazing flavor profile in the dishes, as it was so well seasoned with just enough spice. You are literally eating real food. This isn't a "mystery meal" that tricks you into eating something "healthy". In each dish, you see the chunks of meat, taste the flavor of the veggies and feel the texture of the grains. In addition, each package is labeled with clear nutrient values, including servings and dietary restrictions offerings.
What makes these frozen entrees unique is the patented cooking steam pouch. Simply place the pouch in the microwave for 4-6 minutes (depending on the dish) and the food steam cooks for fresh flavors.
Luvo is sold at most national grocery stores, including Ralphs, and Whole Foods. The line offers grain bowls and breakfast options but unfortunately, those were not available in Southern California at the time of my trial. I have heard from others though that those options are amazing and must try.
Bonus points for the website. It is fantastic. You can source your favorite dish at a local retailer; find detailed nutritional information as well as a great blog site with amazing recipe and meal planning ideas.
Overall, Luvo is a fantastic food option for those who want a healthy meal that can be prepared quickly. I plan to add a few entrees to my weekly shopping list.
