Default Real Good

My grocery stores have started carrying this brand. They're great low-carb frozen meals. And quite delicious. Has anyone tried these?

Real Good is the brand.

Using the store locator, looks like the Walmarts around me carry their brand.

I'll give 'em a try. Have you tried the poppers? BH has tried a pizza but didn't like it.

No, I haven't tried the poppers, but the enchiladas are fantastic.

The enchiladas are good, the poppers are horrible and the pizzas are just ok. Granted, I am hard to impress on the pizza as BH's family has an Italian restaurant and pre-diabetes I ate their pizza all the time. Handmade dough and hand tossed pizza!

The thing I really like about the enchiladas is the portion control. It's just enough to make me satisfied, although I'm not sure they would be enough for a man. But at 190 calories, a man could eat two of them.

Haven't tried them yet, but maybe I'll pick up a box next time I see them to try.

Thanks etherea. The poppers are pretty expensive too, unless they are bigger than they look. Going to the store this afternoon. Will skip the poppers and just get some enchiladas. Will get at least 2.

No, the poppers are not bigger than they look! Definitely skip.

OK got 3 chicken enchiladas and one beef enchilada.

Saw some RealGood Chicken Italian things too, but will see how the enchiladas turn out first.

I'll have to look for those--haven't seen the Italian.
