Healthy Choice Café Steamers

Healthy Choice offers more than 60 varieties in the frozen food aisle that are convenient, tasty and offer something exciting for every craving. This year, Healthy Choice teamed up with Bravo’s Top Chef, www.bravotv.com/showdown, introducing an exclusive line of eight Healthy Choice Top Chef Inspired Café Steamers.

- The Healthy Choice Top Chef Inspired Café Steamers bring an all-star lineup of bold, modern and exciting flavors to give you exactly what you want – food that is both healthy and delicious.

- The line of great-tasting dishes features quality ingredients such as slow roasted garlic, asparagus and grilled eggplant.
- The unique steaming technology separates the sauce from the rest of the entree to steam the meal in the microwave, allowing for crisp vegetables, tender meats and al dente pastas.
- The exclusive new line includes eight delicious varieties that utilize proprietary steaming technology that produces a fresh-tasting meal in minutes.

Varieties include:
Barbeque Seasoned Steak with Red Potatoes
Chicken Fresca with Chardonnay
Chicken Linguini with Red Pepper Alfredo
Chicken Margherita with Balsamic
Grilled Chicken Marinara with Parmesan
Grilled Chicken Pesto with Vegetables
Grilled Vegetables Mediterranean with Rice
Roasted Chicken Marsala with Mushrooms

My thoughts:
I had the opportunity to review two of the varieties above, Grilled Chicken Pesto with Vegetables & Chicken Fresca with Chardonnay. 


Grilled Chicken Pesto with Vegetables


This deliciously inspired dish pairs chicken tenderloins with rotini pasta, zucchini and spinach and tops it off with a basil pesto sauce. Top Chef inspired quality and only 310 calories.










Chicken Fresca with Chardonnay


Chicken tenderloins with redskin potatoes and vegetables in a chardonnay wine sauce. A Top Chef inspired dish that delivers 4 grams of fiber and 16 grams of protein. All for only 240 calories!





Being a full time employee, wife, soon to be mother, and in between all that find me time to blog... I LOVE options like Café Steamers. Unlike other brands of low calorie frozen food, with Café Steamers you do NOT sacrifice flavor! You get a variety of crispy vegetables and tender meats perfectly cooked in a variety of sauces to bring your family a meal that tastes like it's coming straight from your kitchen. The meals are not only delicious but they are also low in calories. With the wide variety available in the frozen section  there is something for everyone.

I am currently 6 months pregnant and I have gained a little more weight than what I thought I would my whole pregnancy. Once I give birth to my baby boy I plan on working hard at loosing this weight and with all the low calorie options Healthy Choice offers they will be on top of my menu options!

The packaging features a Top Chef mark, along with a description on why each entree is inspired by Top Chef. The meals are starting to appear in grocery stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $2.75 - $3.50.
