It’s the start of 2016, new resolutions and of course diet season. A year ago I started mine and I’m excited to say I have lost a total of 33 pounds and am still going strong by maintaining my healthy diet. I have never felt this good and so healthy in my life. I know sometimes when we start diets it is difficult to make sure you are eating the right food for each specific diet. That is why I am so excited to share a new program that we have in our Meat Department at Coborn’s. It is called “Ready Chef Go” and the best part is that you don’t have to be a Chef to prepare these meals. They are beyond awesome and have totally made my life so much easier, especially at dinnertime.
Even though I do two blogs a month for Coborn’s and have a million and one recipes, I struggle sometimes, and after a day at work I walk into the house and ask myself the dreaded question, “What am I going to make for dinner?” Well not anymore!
The Ready Chef Go program is a microwavable bag and also an oven ready bag. You can find these prepackaged bags in the Meat Department between the Meat and Pork sections of the self-service case. Each bag has 6 oz. of meat or seafood and 4 oz. of vegetables. The attributes of these bags are….
- It steam cooks the food to perfection.
- All the flavors and juices are retained inside the bag.
- The sealed bag reduces seafood odor at home when cooking and enhances the flavor of the additional ingredients.
All I need to do is stop at Coborn’s on the way home and pick up a couple of these bags and follow the directions on the back of the package. The packages are heated in the microwave for about 4 to 5 minutes depending on the item, and just like that I have dinner ready to eat in about 10 minutes. The packaging is so awesome that even after you cook them and open the bag if you feel they are not completely done you can reseal the package and cook them a little longer. Most microwave packages can’t be re-sealed. These Ready Chef Go meals are also great for lunch at the office, just pop them in the microwave in the lunchroom and I’m eating in about 5 minutes. I travel a lot with my job and don’t want to eat fast food all of the time when I am traveling, so they are great to take back to the hotel, pop it in the microwave and I have as close to a home cooked meal as you can get when you are on the road at a very affordable cost.
Ready Chef Go meals come in several varieties (chicken, ribs, pork chops, fajita’s, stir fry, salmon, and even fish tacos) along with a variety of vegetables (fresh asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower or green beans). What I really like about them is that there is no seasoning on the fish, which makes the seafood very healthy, and that way I can add seasoning of my choice to them if I like. However, I’ve found out that they are so great tasting that you don’t need seasoning! The flavors are locked into the bag and make the meat and seafood ultra tender and moist. You couldn’t get better vegetables like these with absolutely no seasoning added anywhere else!
I hope you stop by and try one of these AWESOME meals and see how they make your life easier and save you so much time. Comment on Facebook and let me know which one is your favorite. I hope you enjoy… I know I did!
