We first told you about The Healthy Pantry during our Shrink-a-Versary Extravaganza month of giveaways. Melissa was sent a gift pack of products to try, and I was so intrigued by their concept (HELLO, quick 10-minute healthy meals with all the ingredients in a box!) I decided to place an emergency order! Keith, founder and CEO-extraordiare of The Healthy Pantry, was even kind enough to put a rush on my order so I wouldn’t have to wait a minute longer. He’s cool like that!

When the box arrived on my front step, I opened it and inside were 6 smallish boxes, all uniform and perfect! Inside each box were the ingredients for healthy, delicious and EASY meals. All I needed to provide were a couple of ingredients, and *voila*, dinner was served. I first dove into the Skillet Lasagna, and it didn’t disappoint. Cheesy yumminess the kids completely loved!

My next foray was with the Asian turkey burgers. I didn’t have ground turkey on hand, so I used 97% lean ground beef, mixed 1 of my own eggs, and the seasoning packet and hoisin sauce provided by The Healthy Pantry. After the patties were made, I put them in a skillet to cook, and then started on the fried rice. Also included in the box was cook and serve brown rice, a seasoning packet, and I had to scramble 2 of my own eggs to go with. I threw it all in a small sauce pan with some water, let it simmer and by the time my burgers were done, we had honest to goodness “fried” rice. It even tasted totally legit! The burgers were different, and definitely had an Asian flair, but they weren’t so different that my kids wouldn’t eat them. I served them up on whole wheat hamburger buns, with a slice of provolone cheese, lettuce and tomatoes. A bottle of hoisin sauce was included in the meal kit, so we used that as a condiment/dip. My kids inhaled their dinners and my husband was scraping the pan for the last tidbits of rice. I call that a successful dinner!

Best part? It’s HEALTHY. Okay, healthy is tied for EASY on this one.
