I am the world's worst at finding time to eat.
And by that, I really mean I never eat anything but drive thru food. Every now and then my roommate will cook (because she's amazing!) or I'll have a night off and we'll cook something, but for the most part, I hate using what little down time I have between class and work to cook something.
Because of all this, I could not have been more excited when I found out that InnovAsian Cuisine wanted to work with me! I've tried other frozen dinners in the past but they're either never enough to fill me up or they just really don't taste good. You have to be so careful with frozen dinners because they can also get freezer burn pretty fast if you're not careful.
However, I LOVED these dinners! It's SO much food. It's like when you go to a Chinese or Japanese or Thai restaurant and they give you a mound of food for however much you're paying. I can't even eat the whole thing at once so I normally just give the rest to my boyfriend, lest it get thrown away.
And the two below are my favorites:
Thai-Style Chicken Fried Rice & Beef and Broccoli Noodles
You can see that I have four different kinds in my top photo, but there's also a few others (like Shrimp Pad Thai for those of you that wouldn't want chicken). They're all super fresh ingredients and you can cook them either in the microwave or on the stove! They take six minutes in the microwave though, as opposed to twelve on the stove.
The Lemon Grass Kitchen line is one of the very first Thai food frozen lines available, and it was created by Chef Mai Pham to help people like me (who can't particularly cook) to have food with an Asian flair in our own homes without having to know how to make it from scratch. They have no MSG or trans fat in them at all.
AND what I think is the coolest thing about these dinners is that they're meant to be added to. I'm an extremely picky eater, as is the boyfriend, but the line encourages you to add your own flair to the food by adding in limes, or spices like basil or cilantro, or chilis.
It's super easy to make and instead of one large thing you throw in the microwave, it's actually small packets with different ingredients to mix together! I used the stove, but you can use the microwave if you want to. :)
The food absolutely tastes authentic, which made me super happy. It's so much cheaper than actually going to a Thai restaurant (especially since there's only one in my city) and so much more convenient. Now, I might actually eat real food instead of running to Wendy's or Mcdonald's every day! And that's pretty wonderful for both my stomach and my wallet.
If you wanna find them on social media, you can do so here!
And InnovAsian is even taking their hospitality once step farther and offering a coupon! (When you click on it, it'll automatically clip it to your coupons.com clipboard) It's good for $1.50 off of any of the meals!
Which one would you want to try?
I hope you're all having a fantastic, food filled Friday! :)
