ready made meals

*** CONTEST CLOSED ***

Congratulations Lisa, Lia, Heather Goldsmith, Barbara Wright & Lisa Taylor

Ready Made Meals
There is nothing fancy about packaged foods. Its an old tradition. The GoPicnic meal is ready to eat right from the box with absolutely no need for refrigeration or special preparation.

Vegetarian Meals
Whenever I am in a hurry, I take one of these meal boxes for my lunch. Given my dietary restrictions (pure vegetarian), I no longer have to force feed myself with fries, high-carb bagels or cheeseburgers for lunch (It is so frustrating to overly explain myself every time I look for vegetarian meal. Some times it feels like veggies are delicacies. Folks who are here for winning the prize, I will spare you this time from my gazillion stories. Watch out for my new book – My Experiences as a Vegetarian by Mommy Niri).

GoPicnic caters well to folks with special needs or allergies – Kosher, Vegan, Halal, Gluten-Free and many more. Each food item is individually sealed and labeled with its ingredients, so it is possible for those with very specific dietary requirements to tailor their meal accordingly. Overall, its worth a try.

  • caters to folks with allergies – gluten free, soy free, egg free, fish free, shell fish free etc.
  • peanut free – GoDelight uses Sunflower spread instead of peanut butter
  • low in sodium – perfect for flights (Now you don’t have to buy those salty pretzels for $5)
  • perfect for storage – no need for refrigeration
  • nicely packaged to take for picnic, flight or your office

Over the past few months Mommy Niri has been covering healthy food topic through her posts -  Alliances against Childhood ObesityOrganic Candy, Kids Snack Bar, Getting Kids To Eat Veggies,  and Passing on My (Veg) Prejudices. Now, a special giveaway for Mommy Niri readers.

Mommy Niri readers can use the discount code GPMOMS to get 20% off the price at GoPicnic

    I usually feel sick after eating fast food. I don’t like to eat it if I have to. I prefer to go places like Robeks (a smoothie place) and it’s fast but healthy.

    I used to love fast food, but after I started dieting this spring I’ve moved away from it. I hadn’t had any for a few months and I had some Pizza Hut pizza on a special occasion and I seriously got violently ill. Once in a while I’ll get 1 pretzel from Aunt Annies, that’s about it.

    Vicky H. says:

    We don’t necessarily eat healthily, but I, at least, attempt to keep an eye on how much I consume per meal. We still eat fast food, mostly on nights when I won’t be able to cook in time for me to eat before my cut-off (7:30 or 8pm).

    Nancy says:

    Almost all fast-food reataurant meals are not very healthy. The main exception I can think of is a sandwich shop where you can order your meal exactly as you want it.

    I am trying to lose some weight, so I don’t eat any more fast food. I love different kind of salads and my family now it them with me! Usually we make our Saturdays like healthy-meals-day.

    healthy and fast food usually do not belong unless you are at the frmers market buying fresh fruit.

    I love frebch friens and burgers yet my stomach hurts and feel like I want to toss the cookies after eating

    Tari Lawson says:

    Healthy fast food can be difficult. My favorite, healthy quick menu is a peanut butter roll-up. Basically it is natural peanut butter spread on a whole grain tortilla and rolled up :) Yummy and portable.

    If I can’t avoid eating fast food I always order a kid’s meal for myself because the portions are smaller. Then we end up with an extra toy to share with friends.

    I am sure I love all the wrong foods but since I am diabetic it doesn pay me to eat them. I need healthy food. At lunch I don’t like to eat a lot and these GoPinic meals would be just the thing for me. No preparation and mess to clean up and healthy too. Thanks for the chance to WIN!

    Kerrie Mayans says:

    I find it hard to find a healthy fast food. I typically end up going to a sandwich place like subway and getting a veggie and cheese sub. Occassionally I can find a local mexican fast food place that has healthier soft tacos and burritos but it tends to be much more expensive than the unhealthy places.

    i think you really have to watch the fastfoods so called “healthy options” alot of them have more cal. than a burger ! :o
    i do like subways sandwiches and if you get them from the “jared Fav.” with fat-free condiments i dont feel to bad :)

    Years ago, I would treat the kids to a Happy Meal at McDonald’s. I don’t think I’ve allowed them to eat fast food in almost 10 years, that’s how educated I’ve become about nutrition. I can’t think of any place I’d stop along the road to get a healthy fast food meal. That’s why I need to win, so we have GoPicnic meals to take along!

    My kids love fast food, and it always makes me cringe. Even with the “healthy choices” available, it’s usually something that really doesn’t seem all that healthy…or doesn’t fill them up…or isn’t something they’d like. I personally will usually get a salad…but even those aren’t nearly as nice as you can just make at home. These packs, however, really do look good!

    Meghan says:

    My little guy is allergic to egg white proteins so it prevents me from getting lazy and depending on fast food. There are very few foods he can eat in restaurants at all. So, we’re able to keep him on whole foods for almost everything all the time. And, since I made his baby foods from whole foods, his palate craves it.

    Of course, he’s never met a piece of chocolate he didn’t like but that’s another story. ;-)

    We try to eat healthy, but I don’t make a big deal out of it. I try low fat and fat-free stuff, and if they like it, great, if they don’t, I try something else. We eat fast food occasionally, but my kids are just as happy with my homemade meals as they are with junk food, so that works out really well.

I detest Burger King and have never had Taco Bell in my life and never intend to but there is a time and a place for fast food. I hope to continue to learn new healthy options at fast food places though.

    When my family eats fast food, I take forever looking through the menu just to find something decent but it’s hard…I think if you go out to fast food you’d better only do it once in awhile and then it won’t matter if you overindulge! I do love Subway tho, I always try and get my veggies in, I love them!

    My experience with healthy fast food was this awesome place in New Orleans called “Wrap and Roll.” They had the greatest wraps and instead of a side of fries, you got a really nice salad. Unfortunatly they closed. It’s a real shame, there wasn’t enough demand.

    I make sure I keep a few staples in my house for quick go to lunches, rather than stopping at unhealthy fast food restaurants. I always keep whole wheat tortillas and cheddar cheese in the house for the easiest quesadillas. Sometimes whole grain waffles and peanut butter and jelly makes for a twist on lunch, that’s fast and healthy.

    Microwaveable soup has been my shelf stable healthier (and cheaper) alternative to fast food when on the go. Many work locations have microwaves available.

    Many fast food places have websites that list nutritional information about their menu items. You can make healthy choices before you go to a fast food place.

    I also, am a strict vegetarian, and my fiance is a very sensitive Celiac. These meals look incredible! It is so difficult to find food when we go on day trips, it always involves a frantic trip to the store before we go with our fingers crossed.

    We dont do fast food anymore, because Quinn is allergic to Peanuts AND tree nuts. I dont trust any fast food maker, and if we ever do eat out, its only at Olive Garden (thankfully we all like pasta)

    Living with an allergy kid is one of the most difficult things. It really impacts every facet of your life, and not just what we put in our mouths. We dont do gatherings where food is involved, no big easter egg hunts, no trick or treating, and we cant just grab a “meal on the go” when we are running late.

    I am a pretty strict vegetarian and my 5 year old daughter rarely eats any meat herself. Trying to make healthy but kid friendly meals gets tiresome sometimes.Add to the fact that some of her classmates have food allergies and the list of things I can send in her lunchbox gets smaller. These would be perfect to just drop into her Tinkerbell lunchbox when I am not inspired to make something early in the morning!

    Allison says:

    It used to be very difficult to eat healthy fast food. But in recent years with so many people trying to eating healthier and more people becoming vegetarian, most places now offer things if one looks hard enough. Even most fast food restaurants now offer salads, some of which are quite yummy. Plus most places offer a grilled instead of fried sandwich if one isn’t vegetarian. McDonald’s has lowfat frozen yogurt as well as yogurt parfaits. Just have to search hard! Thanks.

    Our family has eliminated eating fast food entirely except for the occasional ice cream treat. Your blog was the first place I have ever seen the Go Picnic products. They look awesome!

    Susan c says:

    we try to have healthy snack options at home for the kids. Luckily both kids like most fresh fruits and vegetables. Yogurt, cheese and milk are big fav’s at our house. If we go to the store they can pick one item to buy, but they have to tell me if it’s healthy or not and why. The oldest usually get applesauce and the youngest wants yogurt.

    Healthy fast food is so hard to do. It seems like whenever most of the larger fast food chains add a decent salad to their menu it doesn’t stay long. We typically head to Subway if we want something a bit healthier.
