Weight Watchers Smart Ones frozen meals {Review}

I was recently contacted to review the Weight Watchers Smart Ones frozen meals.  I received 2 free product coupons so I could try Smart Ones out for myself.   With coupons in hand off to the store I went.

The hardest part about this review was picking just two meals to try out!  They offer a "gourmet" line of Smart Ones,  a "Signature" line of Smart Ones and "Morning Express" breakfast Smart Ones.

Some Helpful info from the EatYourBest.ca website~

Smart Ones is committed to providing smart food choices to support you while managing your weight. That’s why we follow a set of six smart eating principles when creating food for you. We promise to be there throughout the day with smart breakfast, snacks and meals inspired by these principles.


I norrowed down my options and chose:


Ravioli Florentine~Tender ravioli filled with creamy ricotta cheese and tossed in a hearty spinach marinara sauce.

Chicken and cheese Quesadilla~   Grilled chicken breast, a three-cheese blend, peppers and onions in a crispy tortilla.  

I absolutely LOVE cheese filled ravioli.  I request it for my birthday dinner pretty much every year.  This meal did not disappoint.  The ravioli had just the right amount of cheesy goodness and the sauce was hearty with chunks of tomato and a fair amount of spinach.

I was expecting the Chicken and Cheese Quesadilla  to be soggy but it wasn't.  Included in the package was a sleeve for each quesadilla.  This ensured that the tortilla came out of the microwave a  bit crispy, not soggy at all.  The quesadilla includes two in the box but a serving is one quesadilla so this box is a bargain, two meals for the price of one!  I had a quesadilla with a big salad for lunch two days in a row ($1 a quesadilla)

Sales + Coupons =a great deal!  

The Smart Ones meals were on sale for $2 each and right now there is a Buy five save $3 printable coupon available from SmartSource.

5 Smart Ones Meals X $2=$10-$3 coupon=$1.40 each.  If you purchase the quesdilla that includes two portions in each box your meals will work out to 70 cents each meal!
