Luvo/Lyfe Kitchen Review
I’ve had my eye on this line of more “real” frozen meals at Target for awhile now, but can’t see paying $4.49 for one meal to eat all by myself at home (especially one without a really good cheese involved!). Yesterday the whole Luvo/Lyfe Kitchen line happened to be on “Clearance” (AKA 15% off… Not very clearance-y in my opinion Target!) plus I had a $2.25 rebate for the line from the Ibotta app and I decided to give it a whirl!
So what’s the verdict? In a word…. Delicious! I thought the sauce was phenomenal, very rich for a frozen meal (rather than the typical watered down sauces) and spicy! The black beans were the perfect soft but not too soft texture and the chicken really was chicken! Such a nice surprise, even though the label boasts the “All Natural” chicken! In addition to the major players in the dish, the side of polenta was a new food for me. I was a little nervous to try it because I didn’t know what to expect from the cornmeal concoction, but also because I had no way of knowing if it was a good representation of polenta. With my limited experience, I would have to say it is pretty close to the real thing. It had a subtle sweetness that paired well with the savory spicy sauce. The tomato on top gave the polenta that dash of acidity and freshness it needed to really balance out the flavors!
Nutritionally, the meal was pretty solid! A good source of lean protein and 440 mg sodium while containing a carbohydrate, a little vegetable,
meat, and beans made this a well rounded meal. I would definitely try another meal from this line… If I ever happen upon such a good deal again!
