When you go from feeding kids all day long, to only worrying about yourself and a little one for lunch – sometimes you can fall into a rut of pb&j and potato chips.
Once school started, and I found myself lacking energy from this pregnancy that is exactly what was happening. Little Lincoln was living off hot dogs while I was snacking on potato chips because they required nothing of me but to open the bag.
Please tell me I’m not alone in doing that!
Obviously, these aren’t terribly great lunch options and definitely weren’t helping with my lack of energy. So I decided to try something new. I’ve been needing to add in more seafood to my diet for cholesterol purposes, while at the same time limiting it for pregnancy reasons. I found the Michael Angelo’s new Seafood meals in the frozen aisle at my local Kroger’s and figured I should give them a try.
So I picked up every single variety to give them a fair chance of appeasing my weird pregnancy taste buds.
I started with the Stuffed Tilapia. The tilapia itself was perfect! It cooked up beautifully, and I could distinctly pick out all the ingredients in the stuffing. For me the spinach and garlic was a bit overpowering, but with a bite of Tilapia the flavors blended well. The whole 4 minutes it took to cook in the microwave I had to answer continuous questions from the kids about “What smells so good Mom?” and “Can I have some?”
Today I went for the Shrimp Scampi. Oh how I love a good shrimp scampi. Michael Angelo’s did not disappoint me. I was actually quite impressed with the garlic butter sauce. It was the perfect blend, and exactly what I needed this week after a few nights of rough sleep.
I find having one Seafood Meal a week is really good for me. Keeping Michael Angelo’s stocked in my freezer gives me one day a week I can ignore thinking about lunch, and get my weekly intake of delicious seafood. It will help me avoid making a mess in my kitchen that I know won’t get cleaned up because all my energy went into cooking.
I can’t wait until the next few weeks to try the Salmon Piccata and Seafood Primavera! Mark makes faces when I start talking seafood, but if I could, I would live off these delicious fish. Salmon and Shrimp followed by anything else from the sea – just yum! Who else feels the same?
