Yay for free things, right? 🙂
I’m pretty awful when it comes to cooking anything – see any previous post where I’ve tried to cook for proof. So when the lovelies from Tasty Bite contacted me to sample some things, I happily accepted, because, of course. #freefoodisthebestkind
You guys. I was so pleasantly surprised by the flavors and ingredients of these cutely packaged products. Normally, I follow that golden rule of shopping on the outside aisles of the grocery store for fresh foods only (with the exception of my canned olives and beans!) but this will absolutely change my ways. Added perks? They’re ethnic style foods, they have vegetarian options and tons and TONS of gluten free options. If I had known about these in college, I would have been set! They take 60-90 seconds to prep and they’re so good.
Yes, this came from a package! I added the avocado and feta (it did NOT need feta at all, picked around it when I ate it actually) but the avocado was heavenly in it.
That delicious soup (I don’t know if it’s actually soup but that’s how I wanted to eat it!) above came from this ONE MINUTE package. And the ingredients are all things I can pronounce AND I know what they are! 🙂
Love it. I was so mad when I finished this because it was my favorite one of them all! I will be stocking up on these Madras Lentils to just have on hand from now on (and in case of an apocalypse).
I tried other meals that Tasty Bite sent me and they were all very flavorful and just simply hit the spot.
This stuff was spicy and hearty – both absolute musts in my book.
This stuff doesn’t look like much……
But it was SO good! I ate it after work as a snack but I imagine it’d be delicious paired with something else to create a more balanced meal, haha.
Another adorable thing? The cute little stories on the back of the label.
But Rebekah and I had a nice little laugh about the word scintillating…. Pitch Perfect anyone? Or just us with the immaturity?
Thanks girl, Fat Amy (Patricia) to the rescue.
I loved that these meals took 60-90 seconds to prepare, that they were vegetarian and gluten free, and that the ingredients were all normal and easily pronounced (and minimal, too). But my favorite part? The portions of the meals. I am a big fan of portion control and I think that some packaged meals miss the mark completely – but for me, these are perfect. I really wish I had known about these suckers in college because I would have been all about it. At least I can move forward in life with these quick meals on hand. At least I’ve got that!! 🙂
Tasty Bite is giving away a sampler pack of SIX meals to anyone of you beautiful people to try! All you need to do is comment below and answer one of my questions, per my usual posts! 🙂 I’ll select a winner next week, randomly, when I get back from my Labor Day vacation!
What kind of quick, go to meals do you usually have on hand?
Do you like ethnic foods? I can’t exercise any self control when it comes to Indian food, ever. Or Chinese food. Or Japanese food. Just send me Asia already. Needless to say, my craving for Indian food has been satisfied this week!
Do you pay attention to ingredient lists when you buy things? I will spend hours in grocery stores determining if I’m willing to put some sort of funky chemical in my body just for a heavenly bite (or whole sleeve) of some oreos!
P.S. I’M ON VACATION as you read this!!!!!! WOOOOOO!! See you guys on Tuesday! HAPPY LABOR DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
