lean cuisine challenge

21 April 2009, 02:50

i have never been on a diet. or eaten frozen pre-packaged food for 2 meals a day, 5 days in a row and so i was a tad unsure about attempting the lean cuisine challenge. on behalf of nestle, the lovely georgie from mark communications sent me, not quite nigella and jenius a week’s worth of lean cuisine’s new range of ‘real food, real taste’. 97% fat free and free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives says the box. and it’s part of a campaign where three girls are LIVING in a glassed off shop on bathurst st in the cbd where they will be eating lean cuisine and doing workshops with nutritionists, fitness schedules and evaluating food diaries. heh it’s a healthy big brother lol

first lean cuisine meal for lunch was the rich & creamy mushroom tortellini. i must say i was quite curious on whether the food would look like the pretty picture on the box. looks ok hey? and damn i must have a really small stomach because i was full 3/4 of the way in! altho i did eat some corn earlier on…

and for dinner: sundried tomato tortellini. not bad not bad. i may have some issues with sun dried tomatos but it was still pretty tasty. it was also a bit of a relief not having to worry about planning ahead on what to make for dinner!



  1. dude, i work for the company, unless you’re getting them for free, let me know when you’re free and come round to the company to go to our staff shop, it’s all at around cost price….cheap. guests are welcome as long as you attach yourself to me

  4. ugh good luck with that! I often eat them for lunches, so easy at work, but couldn’t do it for a week, let alone for dinner too! way too salty…. you don’t want to look at the sodium in those things!
