I’m starting to question the 97% fat free claim on these now. Today’s meals were so filling and they didn’t taste ‘light’ at all. I’m glad to report that both the tortellini and mince were full in flavour. Mmmm…
The creamy sun-dried tomato and vegetable sauce had a nicer texture than the tomato sauce on yesterday’s cannelloni and the cheesy goodness inside the tortellini made the meal much more satisfying.
The country style mince was like a deconstructed meat pie with dollops of mashed potato. I toasted this in the oven for crunch.

I’m loving these fuss free meals. Day 3 over now, just 2 days and 4 Lean Cuisine meals to go…

  • 97% fat free maybe but they’re looking very carbilicious – maybe that’s contributing to the full feelings you’re having 🙂

  • you should do a movie like Super Size Me except call it Lean Size Me
    Simon 🙂

  • Little dubious about the look of the second one. Looks like the second or third itteration of left overs made from left overs.
    Tortellini looks alright though.
