**I received complimentary products from Schwan’s to help facilitate my review. I received no other compensation for this post. All opinions are my own.**

Meal time has been one of the hardest things to manage since  I have returned to school. We have had such a hard time getting into a routine that involves getting to the grocery store, let alone planning meals and cooking. We have found ourselves eating out a lot, and when we do eat at home it has been quick meals that tend to not be the most healthy.

I was beyond ecstatic to have  the chance to try out Schwan’s products! Schwan’s is a home delivery food service with over 350 products that are flash frozen to keep them fresh! They also have the new Live Smart line, featuring healthy options including gluten free products.

 

I chose to try out products from the Live Smart line. We ordered the Garlic Herb Shrimp (#567), Asparagus Spears (#781), and Chocolate Frozen Yogurt (#384).

We were so excited when they arrived! Our Schwan’s delivery man was so friendly! He explained his regular schedule, and gave us a number where we could reach him on delivery day in case we needed to change our order while he was already out.

I found a great recipe on the Schwan’s website for Garlic Shrimp w/ Pasta and Asparagus, which is how I chose my products to try. Schwan’s has a great collection of recipes, which can make it easier to decide which of the over 350 products to order.

 

I decided this was also a great time to revive the A Dish and A Drink weekly series on the blog. (Well, revive is a stretch since I have only posted in the series one before, but I am going to try to stick with it this time! Haha!)I paired our meal with the Sauvignon Blanc from Cupcake Vineyards.

 The meal was absolutely delicious! It was a perfect meal to make on a work night because the ingredients don’t need to be defrosted, and it can be ready in minutes. Another plus is that it is a healthy option! The flavor of the dish was amazing, and the ingredients tasted so fresh! You would never have guessed that they were frozen.

We finished with some dessert too! Yummy chocolate frozen yogurt, also from the Live Smart line!

    I would love to try the Tamales, but if I won I would probably go for something I know my kids would eat which would be the cheese tortellini.

    I haven’t heard of Schwan’s until reading this post but it sounds great. I am a working mom of 3 and dinner time is hectic, to say the least. I would like to try the Oven Roasted Chicken Bites. I also love pot pies and saw there were 3 different kinds!

    Oh I would love to try their Gluten Free Pepperoni Pizza – one pizza per box! I was amazed at all the products they have for us that are gluten free!
