Eat Smart with Weight Watchers' SmartOnes®! {Review + Giveaway}

I try to eat healthy when I can, but sometimes it can be difficult- especially with Halloween 2 weeks away (Delicious chocolate, oh my!) and Thanksgiving only 33 days away. But ever since Mom was diagnosed with high blood pressure about the same time she had her pacemaker put it, I've been wanting to get on a better diet and take care of myself so I can take care of her.

WeightWatchers' SmartOnes® allow you to eat healthy without sacrificing taste! All of the SmartOnes® products (meals, breakfasts, snacks and desserts) follow the 6 Smart Eating Principles:

If you're ever wandering down the frozen food aisle, wondering what to get, consider WeightWatchers SmartOnes®! They are delicious, healthy, and help you stay on track by eating smart!

I was able to try out Weight Watchers SmartOnes® for myself. I actually had Twin help me pick one out because she was going to help me try it out as well. I love Chinese food (I just hate the sodium!) so I decided upon Teriyaki Chicken With Vegetables. It looked so good on the box and coming out of the microwave!
At first, it was so hot, I really couldn't taste anything. I thought "This is bland!", but once my mouth-and the food- cooled down, it was delicious! It tasted like authentic teriyaki chicken, and the vegetables were so fresh and crisp. It had a bit of spice, which I think was from the spicy & sweet teriyaki sauce. The rice was pretty good. The chicken was moist and tender. I didn't want to share half, but I had already promised Twin I would. What did Twin think? After she finished eating it, she immediately said, "We're getting more next week.". I took that as she loved it just as much as I did.

It tasted like it should've been "bad" for you, but I know it was a great way to Eat Smart (minus a couple of FunSize Snickers earlier in the day) for dinner and it filled me up! I agree with Twin- we'll be getting more next week!

On a related note- I think it would be a great way for Mom to start eating better without, like I said, sacrificing taste!!
