Product Review: Evol Veggie Fajita Burrito

Ever had one of those weeks where you just can’t seem to find the time to make dinner? Of course you have. Between work, social obligations (OK, maybe obligations isn’t the right word to describe a birthday dinner for one of my most favorite friends), and coaching traveling soccer, life has been full of rushing around this week (and it’s only Wednesday!).

Last night I decided to run home to catch a yoga class and grab a few groceries before soccer practice. Being as hungry as I was after sweating it out for 60 minutes, I bought a lot of things I probably wouldn’t have normally at the co-op (you know what they say about grocery shopping when you are hungry!). Luckily for me, an Evol Veggie Fajita Burrito was one of those purchases. Now normally I try to stay away from frozen food if possible, being a lot of freezer section packaged meals have been heavily processed and thus are more likely to contain artificial additives (not to mention they just aren’t as tasty as made-from-scratch cooking!). Evol Burritos however, are all-natural and most are made with 70-80% organic ingredients – how awesome!

By the time I got home and unloaded the groceries, I only had a few minutes before I had to head out the door again. Although I normally save frozen meals for the days when I don’t have anything good to bring for lunch to work, I wasn’t able to find anything of substance in the fridge for dinner. The quick 2-minute cook time on the Evol Burrito was perfect!

Leaving my hopes for a nutritious and satisfyingly tasty dinner at the door, I took the first bite as I headed to my car. To my surprise, the Evol Veggie Fajita Burrito surpassed my expectations. Now I’m not saying it was the best burrito I’ve ever had (luckily there are lots of delicious authentic Mexican restaurants where I’m from), but compared to other frozen burritos in the past these ones are definitely worth giving a try.

The Evol Veggie Fajita’s all-natural ingredients include red and green bell peppers, black beans, brown rice and a roasted tomato and corn salsa all rolled into a whole-wheat tortilla – yum! The fact that the Evol Veggie Fajita burrito is only 290 calories with 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber is something worth smiling over.

Find Evol burritos in your local co-op, health food store, or participating grocer’s freezer section. Evol also makes frozen pizzas, flatbreads, and bowls.
