I’m participating in a Vibrant Influencer Network Healthy Choice campaign. I’ve been provided with free products* and remuneration in exchange for my honest opinions about the Healthy Choice products. All opinions are mine and mine alone.
This is my second installment in the Healthy Choice taste test. This week we will feature Healthy Choice Café Steamers, located in your supermarkets frozen food aisle.
As I mentioned in my previous Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt post… I’m rather picky when it comes to frozen food, oh who am I kidding I’m a choosy foodie. If the flavor or appearance is too far out there for me I’d rather pass on the entire meal and go hungry.

Healthy Choice Tortellini Primavera Parmesan Café Steamers
Four cheese stuffed tortellini, julienne carrots, squash and red pepper strips. Toss in Chardonnay wine with extra virgin olive oil and finished off with Parmesan cheese.
This one is a keeper! This meal falls under the vegetarian category but don’t let that fool you, it’s packed with hearty pasta flavors you will love. Each flavor blended well together to bring about a filling and appealing lunch. I added a small side salad to complete my lunch which held me perfectly until supper time. The stuffed tortellini was delightful, however I do believe the sauce could use a bit more seasoning. This is an Italian dish it should taste more like an Italian dish. The tortellini was not overly chewy and yet not dried out which can often be found in frozen tortellini, making this one a keeper for my lunch time line up. The only thing I found not to my liking is the sodium count, it comes in a 490 mg which is a bit high for me, however that will not stop me from giving the tortellini primavera parmesan meal a thumbs up for over all appearance and tortellini taste.
Healthy Choice Rosemary Chicken and Sweet Potatoes Café Steamers
Savory chicken breast tenderloin tossed in a rosemary garlic sauce, then blended with diced onions, sweet potatoes, and yellow carrots.
I’m sad to say I will be giving this one a thumbs down. The chicken breast tenderloin were sadly the only thing I found edible in the entire dish; and this is coming from someone whom actually prefers veggies over meat. After preparing the meal as directed, the sweet potatoes were simply not cooked properly. The carrots and onions were to the point of becoming if not already over cooked. The over all taste fell flat for me, and the appearance was lacking. It looked like a soupy mess. I do not like giving bad review but this time I could not let it slide. This is not a meal I would ever try a second time around. And after reading the reviews online I find that others felt basically the same way with this particular meal.
When former CEO Mike Harper suffered a heart attack in 1985, which forced him to dramatically alter his diet, he began seeking healthier alternatives. The search ultimately led to his idea for a line of delicious and healthy frozen foods that would help make it easier for others to live a healthier lifestyle. After teaming with the FDA to create a set of standards that all food must meet in order to be called “healthy”; Healthy Choice was born.
Since then Healthy Choice has pioneered a ling list of delicious products and continues to innovate new and exciting ways to prepare the tastiest, healthiest food in the healthy category.
