lightlife #1

First and foremost, I'm so sad that I missed the Arizona Blogger meet up last night. I bet it was a blast and although I couldn't make it, I'm super excited to see everyone's photos and hear all about it!


Alright, so for the next five Sundays I will be reviewing five different products that lightlife has generously sent to me (I'm glad that they've read my blog and saw that I love their product).

#1: The new Smart Cutlets - Original



Lightly coat a small skillet with vegetable oil or butter and cook cutlets on medium heat for about 5 minutes, flipping once or twice.



While the cutlets were cooking, I heated up a can of my favorite rice and beans and poured them onto a plate with some salsa, then added the cutlets on top.



What I liked: I loved that these bad boys were pre-grilled, I could really taste it and since I don't have a BBQ, it gave it that added flavor.

What I disliked: I should have sauteed some vegetables to be paired with them. I kind of ran with the idea of having a more Mexican-themed dish, but as the front of the box proposes, I will be trying it with wild rice and veggies next time.

  5. Do you use Gardein? I love their products since it's what they use at Veggie Grill / the veggie options at Yardhouse. I haven't always been that big a fan of Lightlife but this looks good, especially the rice/beans!

  6. You know, every gardein product that I've used at home has tasted awful, but I LOOOVE Yardhouse and Veggie Grill -- can't get enough of them! I don't know what I'm doing wrong at home haha.
