Today is a really exciting day! I start sharing with all of you a brand that I’ve been using since I got to the US! As most of the moms I know we are always on the go and, sometimes, we forget to prep lunch or dinner and we need a fast but healthy option to feed our family. I have found that solution with Gainful meals!
All the meals, which you can get frozen or in a meal pack (I’ll get that later on) are all natural and made of 100% whole grain steel cut oats. We love our oats in the morning and evening with some fruit, yogurt, honey or nut butter. And now they’re making it available to us to have them for a meal too? How great is that?
Grainful meals don't have preservatives, artificial colors or flavors. They are gluten free certified, rich in fiber and there are no GMO ingredients either, which I know is always something to avoid at all costs! The more natural you keep your food, the better it will be for you and your family. With these meals you get 100% natural ingredients, low fat and high protein content.
As for me the frozen meals are a staple in any home. I mean, I can get it from the freezer to the microwave and in 5 minutes I have a whole meal to which I can add some more protein like chicken or eggs or I can just have it like that for a reinforced snack or a small meal. I must tell you it doesn’t get any better that that as for fast “good for you” food!
Lets meet the family of products!
As you can see you get to choose from a great range of flavors, from international cuisine to southern inspirations and you'll have no work at all doing so! Whatever your imagination and inspiration takes you just add your favorite toppings and some fresh herbs and you will be giving your family a true chef inspired creations with your own personal touch.
I LOVE the "Porcini Mushroom Chicken" and I usually just add some Parmesan shavings and that's enough to have kind of a mushroom risotto!
The range of frozen entrees can satisfy every taste bud and you have 8 amazing varieties to choose from:
More recently, Grainful decided to expand the brand and they came up with the Meal Kits. They are shelve stable meal packages full of bold flavors and natural ingredients that can help prepare your homemade meals with a little less effort, or a lot less may I say so!!! These are ideal if you intend to further personalize the dish because you can use the kit as a base for the meal and then build up your dinner or lunch around it. For example, cook up a batch of steaming seafood, corn cobs and add some grilled sausage and you'll have the most amazing Jambalaya with the right fixings!
I'll be posting on Instagram and Facebook all the different experiences both with the frozen meals and the meal kits so you can have a starting point. From there you just have to make the meals your own. Try something new and see how that works!
This are the meal kits available:
You can find Grainful meals on your local retail store. If you prefer you can access the website and go here for the store locator. Just put in your zip code or full address and it'll tell you the nearest location where you can find Grainful products. Being a loyal costumer I know that there are always promotions at the store. For example this week I know that locally I can get these meals for $1.99, how cool is that? Nutritious, natural, safe and satisfying meals for under $2!
It's also possible to buy the products online through the website, here.
The frozen meals come in 5 pack boxes for $41.63 or you can get a 4 pack variety to try them out for $32.50.
The meals kits run at $5.99 each and you can get single packages.
With all this information I think I've made my point. You can get frozen options at the supermarket without sacrificing you health. Nothing justifies eating food with artificial preservatives, over processed food and things that we already now are just making us unhealthy.
Please, when you try Grainful let me know what you chose and how you cooked it so we can spread the creativity! Have a great week and be mindful about what to bring in the shopping cart for the next grocery trip.
Also, thank you Grainful, for the generosity in providing the frozen meals and meal kits that I'm reviewing. It's always a pleasure to work with such inviting and caring companies. I'll do my best promoting not only the products shown but also a healthy lifestyle, which really is the main goal of my blog and social contributions.
