OLG’s Favorite Things: Lean Cuisines (and more!)

Post by
November 9, 2018

Like the cuisine, we run a lean ship around here at OLG. Always movin’ and groovin’ to the next, best thing. That being said, it’s pretty common around here that between 11:30 AM and 1 PM, our microwave is hard at work, heating up our frozen lunches.

We’ve ventured the depths of the frozen meal aisle, and think, collectively, we’ve got a good grasp on what’s what. So, we compiled our list of favorites (some actual Lean Cuisines, and beyond). 

 

Lean Cuisine

Annie

This might scandalize everyone, but mine is Lean Cuisine Tortilla Crusted Fish.

 

Lean Cuisine Frozen Lunches

Chelsea

I’ve only tried a few (*gasp*), but I would say the Lean Cuisine Chicken with Almonds!

 

Frontera Frozen Lunches

Jake

I bounce around, but I think my fave is the Frontera Barbacoa Taco Bowl.

 

Evol Steak

Jasmine

I like to trick myself into thinking I’m having a nice robust dinner at lunch, so it’s Evol Fire Grilled Steak. It’s all in your head.

 

Lean Cuisine Frozen Lunches

Jonathan

I like the ones that have the least complicated prep, none of this—”vent, cook for a bit, remove, stir, cover again and cook more”—stuff. So I’m all about the Sweet and Sour Chicken. And the Chicken Tikka. 

 

Lean Cuisine Frozen Lunches

Matt K

Lean Cuisine Roasted Turkey Breast—It’s like Thanksgiving in a box, priced to move at 5/$10. LC says it best: “Deliciously familiar fall flavors. Tender roasted turkey and stuffing in a savory herb dressing with a side of our crowd-pleasing cinnamon apples.”

 

Lean Cuisine Frozen Lunches

Matt T

LEAN CUISINE SANTA FE RICE & BEANS AND DON’T TRY TO CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE.

 

Evol Frozen Lunches

Olivia

It’s Evol Parmesan Truffle Mac & Cheese (with a Honeycrisp Apple and a Coke Zero).

 

What’d we miss?

Let us know, and maybe we’ll rate and review ’em. Or maybe one of us will just get bored of our favorites, and try something new. Either way, our eyes and ears are open.
