For the Chaotic Schedule: Smart Ones


The time isn’t even here yet, and my Fall schedule is already jam-packed. I take a look at my upcoming calendar and I cringe – this will require some strong ninja tactics to survive this chaos! 

There are a couple days each and every week where the activities are so booked that I might be home for maybe 30 minutes from the time school ends until bedtime. I have thought of these days for weeks now and think, ‘Umm, what about that thing called dinner?’. 

To avoid the drive-thu pitfall, I have goals to meal plan, use the slow cooker and will most likely will rely on brown bagged dinners for many of these nights. Yet, having as many meal options as I can, might be the key to surviving this schedule mess. 

weight watchers smart ones review

I was offered the chance to try some Weight Watchers Smart Ones and I realized that I haven’t tried any of their product before. I knew my husband buys them often, for dinners at work. He’s always raved about them, yet I never thought to try them myself. Why not?

Turns out they have many meal solutions for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The selection is quite huge actually, how could I walked by this section of the freezer aisle so many times without a second glance? 

smart ones cranberry turkey medallions

My favourite thus far is the Cranberry Turkey Medallions meal. It comes with roasted turkey medallions in a cranberry sauce with roasted potato wedges. You know when you crave a turkey dinner and need that fix, fast? Yes!

This meal is so flavourful, and the spices on the potatoes and vegetables are delicious! In the past I’ve passed over microwavable meals due to them becoming soggy or bland. This one is divine, the vegetables crisp! I wouldn’t hesitate to buy this one again.

slow roasted turkey breast smart ones

I also like the 200 calorie Slow Roasted Turkey Breast Meal {yes, another great turkey meal}. This one has a gravy that beats many that I’ve had before. The potatoes are spiced and fluffy. I do wish this one has some veggies included, then it might have been my top pick. Yet, toss a quick salad to go along with them meal – and you are set.

I guess my husband was onto something before I was this time, I can see why he raved about them for quite a while now. I’m interested in trying more Weight Watchers Smart Ones in the near future and see what other meals make re-appearances in my freezer.
