I'm In Love With Luvo

** I receive products for free in return for reviews as part of the Mom's Meet Blogger Program. All opinions are my own. **

I am one of those moms who isn't really into buying frozen prepared foods or snacks very often. I don't mind a few boxes of frozen snacks for one of our famous sleepover parties. Our freezers are filled with meat, veggies, bags of strawberries, fresh pasta, Girl Scout cookies, and some of our favorite bread we travel several miles to buy. I enjoy cooking and baking although, I didn't always! Back when my husband and I had our first baby and we both worked all of the time, the fanciest I got was a box of Hamburger Helper or Tuna Helper with some added ingredients! But, I don't even "cook" those anymore either!

Much like every other parent, I rarely have time to eat. If I do, it's whatever is left in the pan or whatever I could sneak before serving everybody else. On the busiest of evenings, I'm lucky to get a handful of pistachios and string cheese. Along with my diet of coffee, well, pots of coffee, I'm lucky to get a meal, much less 3 meals a day. That's where Luvo comes in!

Luvo has a few different, very healthy, nutritious, and yummy options available. I was lucky enough to try the Steam In Pouch Meals.

These are the varieties I tried but there are much more! Each one of these boxes includes a full serving of vegetables, grains, and quality proteins. They are flash frozen in their own top secret steam in pouch packaging and they are super simple to throw in the oven and knock a few more things off of your to-do list while you wait!

Once the timer goes off, you just remove, let the steam pouch sit for a couple of minutes, open, and gently slide on your plate and you have a fabulous entree that looks like you made from scratch! 
They actually slide out quite easily and surprisingly, the sides won't mix up together and you won't have a big, mushy mess of everything, This is not what I expected, to be honest! 

You can see the broccoli and cauliflower really look freshly steamed! Not to mention, everything tastes like real food. You would never know they came from the freezer. I think that was the most amazing part to me. Although, I am really digging these steam pouches! The rice, beans, all of the sides and sauces taste homemade and I have yet to have a pouch not cook evenly. 

It's hard to pick a favorite but if I had too, it would be the Red Wine Braised Beef and Polenta with Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Butternut Squash, and Cranberries. I always assume that any beef that comes in a box or from a freezer or a can of any kind, will taste like that beef stew from a can but, this is so flavorful and just melts in your mouth! Not to mention, all of the flavors blend together so well!

Another bonus with Luvo meals is that they stack nicely in your freezer. So, you can stock up and be sure to have at least one for each of your most hectic nights! 

I haven't tried any other Luvo products just yet, even though I would love too! I haven't had any luck finding them in a store near me but I have a feeling they will be there very soon. 

Luvo also offers Bowls which come in a paperboard bowl and also have a good variety so everyone is certain to find at least 3 or 5 that would please their palate! 
They also offer Planted Bowls that are also Non GMO, vegan, and gluten-free. 

One of the other reasons I am actually loving Luvo is that they are very active on social media! You can find them in all of the usual places and you can find out about Twitter parties, giveaways, new products, and free shipping and other deals! (Yes, you can actually buy Luvo meals online if you can't find them in a store near you! Or if you just feel like having them sent directly to your house!)
