My Atkins Journey {Frozen Meals & Endulge Treats}

All this month I’ve been sharing about my new journey on the Atkins 40 diet/meal plan {You can read the previous posts here and here}

Today I wanted to give you an update on how it’s been going and I want to tell you all about Atkins frozen meals!

First off, here I am about three weeks-ish into my Atkins 40 diet! Things are going absolutely wonderful, I’m losing weight but most importantly I’m so happy with how I feel, my energy level is so much higher and I’m really feeling good about myself…it hasn’t been that way for a while.

My journey hasn’t been all sunshine and lollipops, one of the most difficult parts for me is not over snacking and my chocolate cravings. I married to the biggest sweet tooth I know and I have become accustomed to always having all different kinds of chocolate treats in the house! But when I told my husband that I wanted to do the Atkins diet he was 100% on board so this has been a journey for both of us. We have been diligently cleaning out our pantries and making healthier choices..rather than the bag of M&Ms or other snacks that we would have previously glommed on to. Honestly, I’d be lying if I told you that it been the easiest thing I’ve ever done in my life… it hasn’t been. It in fact was a little rough the first few days but honestly what has gotten us through it is the Atkins Endulge line of delicious treats!

My husband and I have been able to replace our favorite peanut M&Ms with the Atkins Chocolate Covered Peanut Candies. For a little perspective…the Atkins Chocolate Covered Peanuts come individually wrapped with a very good-sized portion, there are five packages to the box and they have 150 cal and ONLY 1net carb. Now go look at your favorite candy wrapper…yeah it’s pretty crazy!

One thing that you might be asking yourself is “but this is going to be diet food candy right?” Absolutely wrong! The Endulge line does have that diet food, sugar-free candy taste that I know a lot of you were thinking! The Endulge line is amazing, it is so good currently mine and my husbands top favorites are the

You should defiantly go try them…all!

Frozen Meals:

Okay, I know what you’re thinking “yuck frozen meals, they have no taste and are sick right?” Wrong! But, If you’re like me and you have had a frozen meal at any time in the past, you shutter at the thought of willingly eating one. Honestly it has been very few and far between that I have had a frozen meal that was actually good. So when I discovered that Atkins had a line of frozen meals, I was not over the moon and excited to try them because everything that I had experienced screamed frozen meals are just not good. So, you can imagine my surprise when I finally broke down and I bought four frozen meals. I figured ‘okay I’m going to give these a try’ The first one that I made was the Sesame Chicken Stir-Fry.

Friends, let me tell you this was probably the best sesame chicken stir fry that I’ve ever had…including restaurants…no joke! The sesame chicken stir fry is full of delicious white meat chicken breast, green beans, red bell peppers, broccoli and the sesame sauce is to die for…the best part? 350 cals and ONLY 7net carbs!! Once again Atkins has exceeded my expectations!

I want to take a few minutes and tell you about my other favorite Atkins frozen meals: {I have yet to have a frozen meal that I have not loved!}

The Beef Merlot:

Once again this Atkins frozen meal is delicious! It has tender beef with Merlot wine sauce and broccoli. This is one of my go to Favorite lunches, it’s wonderful AND it’s only 310 cal and only 6net carbs!

Meatloaf with Portobello Mushroom Gravy:

Now, I grew up in the South/Midwest and meatloaf was one of my mom’s most favorite meals to make when I was growing up, so, I know a good meatloaf when I taste one. I’ve got to tell you Atkins is onto something with this meatloaf! It is so amazing! This delicious meatloaf (which is a fairly large portion) comes smothered in the yummiest mushroom gravy with cauliflower and fire roasted zucchini and green beans! It has 320 cal and only 7net carbs

Swedish Meatballs:

Now, these are brand-new in the store that I regularly shop at. I was so excited when I saw them because I’ve always loved Swedish meatballs πŸ™‚ and Atkins Swedish Meatballs did not disappoint! They are so good, they are pork and beef and come in a yummy rich sour cream gravy with tons mushrooms and onions! This makes a perfect lunch or dinner and is 350 cal and only 6net carbs

The Orange Chicken:

Just like the Swedish meatballs this too was brand-new and my regular store so I was very excited I absolutely love Asian food and one of my all-time favorites is orange chicken…I haven’t had orange chicken in a long while, because recently I decided to read the nutrition facts (whoa) This Atkins orange chicken was AMAZING! It’s grilled chicken breast with bok choy, edamame and carrots with a spicy orange sauce. All the flavors are so good together this is for sure going to be one of my absolute favorites! I even joked with my husband that if we have some friends come over we could get a couple different orange chicken meals and making them and see if our friends even notice that it’s not takeout…They won’t!

Lastly,

The Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo: (sorry no photo I accidentally deleted it)

The very first time I had this, I couldn’t believe how good it smelled while it was cooking! My husband who works from home actually came upstairs and asked what I was cooking and told me that it smelled exactly like the olive garden! And he wasn’t wrong πŸ™‚ This delicious meal is white meat chicken breast with broccoli and a real Parmesan Romano Alfredo cheese sauce it is so delicious and only has 330 cal and only 5net carbs

I don’t know what Atkins is doing but these frozen meals are amazing…and so is the Endulge line!

If you’re trying to watch what you eat or watch your carbs I highly recommend giving the Atkins Frozen Meals a try, if you have a sweet tooth but you don’t want all the carbs and all the sugar I also very highly recommend the Atkins Endulge line you will not be disappointed!

Keep an eye out at the end of this month for an update and I’m going to share with you about the Atkins meal bars!
