BarillaOnce I became a stay-at-home mom, I just always assumed that life would go by at a much more leisurely pace than it did when I was officially in the work force.  Boy, was I wrong!  Life has never been more hectic, which unfortunately means that most days I end up skipping lunch entirely.

Skipping meals is never good for anyone and I don't want to model this behavior for my daughter either.  Now, thanks to Barilla and their new line of healthy microwave meals, I can successfully make a yummy pasta dish for me in the time it takes to make my daughter's lunch.

Feed Your Grumbling Tummy with Healthy Microwave Meals from Barilla

My family has always loved Barilla pasta and we cook with it frequently.  That's why I was thrilled to discover that Barilla recently developed an entire line of healthy microwave meals which go from pantry to table in just 60 seconds.  No matter how busy my life might become, I can always find time for that!

Whether at home or on the go, Barilla Microwaveable Meals are easy to carry and super easy to prepare.  The best part is, that these meals contain 100% all natural ingredients, are just over 300 calories, have no preservatives and are even available with whole grain pasta!  Of course, I was a little skeptical at just how well these dishes would taste, since typically the healthier something is, the more it ends up tasting like cardboard.

That's where I was pleasantly surprised!  I gave the Barilla Microwaveable Meals a try on a day when I was so busy that I was tempted to skip lunch again.  Instead, I grabbed the Whole Grain Fusilli with Vegetable Marinara Sauce variety of healthy microwave meals from Barilla.  Partially peel back the cellophane wrapper and pop it in the microwave for the instructed sixty seconds.

The pasta was cooked al dente (just like I like it) and the sauce tasted wonderful!  I ate the entire dish in no time flat and felt full and satisfied, with a renewed sense of energy.  This was MUCH better than missing lunch altogether.

Whether at home or at the office, the new healthy microwave meals from Barilla are absolutely perfect for the person who simply doesn't have time to stop and prepare something hot and hearty on their own.  It also is much faster (and tastes better) than the myriad of fast food options out there, which are typically far from healthy.  If you've been searching for a nutritious and great tasting lunch option which won't slow you down, then be sure to pick up one of the five varieties of Barilla Microwaveable Meals.

4.5 Star Product Review
Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Barilla and received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
