Exciting ! I hope that they stay around- it is great to be able to grab a frozen meal sometimes South Beach used to make them a while ago (Kraft, maybe?) , but then they became extinct. I like it that people who are low carb now have the option of grabbing a quick frozen meal instead just a frozen omelet. All of the rest of the frozen b-fasts are loaded with potatoes !!!! The other WW meals, etc, they throw in pasta/noodles and starchy veggies- thank you, Atkins this will make following the plan easier

Sodium content is way too high for me. Salt is a preservative so they should not be pushing them as "no preservatives". I'd rather make my own lunch since I know what goes into it. I did see a sweepstakes on FB to win a trip to La. and for a $2 coupon.

Atkins Frozen

I did print the coupon and was able to use it at Wally world .

I found mine in Ohio at the New Boston location. I had to ask the guy who was putting out frozen merchandise if they had them. They were on an end cap freezer . Crammed onto two shelves. Good selection. 3.48 I am thinking

So far I just tried the Tex-Mex scramble.... it was good , but the cholesterol and sodium contents are so high that I will have a couple on hand .Those are two things I have to watch and I think I can control those better not eating a lot of processed foods. Since DH does work away sometimes these will be handy.

Still have the others in the freezer, but if I still worked... These would be very helpful.

Sodium was the first thing I thought about when I saw them on Jimmy Moore's channel. I'll pass....

In Orlando FL, the Wal-mart stock guys said they had them in, but could not put them out until the new year....

I need to try a few of these for emergency lunches at work. I know they won't be the most healthful thing I could eat but if it keeps me on plan then it is worth it.

They had about 8 varieties today at the Super Wal-Mart in Tempe, AZ. It's in a very small display space near the vegetarian entrees.

I bought one of each, because I don't shop at Wal-Mart very often. I made the meatloaf for lunch today. It tasted vaguely like meatloaf but had a rubbery texture. Not something I would eat every day, but it's fine for emergency lunch at the office once in a while.

Well, cold is a preservative too, ... I doubt they would keep them at room temperature in order to say it's completely preservative free

Salt is a natural preservative, always has been. No body has a problem with using salt as a preservative instead of synthetically produced chemicals. Butter is preserved with salt. Ham is preserved with salt.

Sugar is a natural preservative, so when a person makes homemade jam with no "preservatives", they don't mean they made it without the sugar that naturally preserves it. the sugar is an ingredient that ALSO is a natural preservative.

Vitamin C is a preservative, I don't imagine they avoided using foods high in Vitamin C just to be able to say it's preservative free because Vitamin C happens to prevent spoilage.

Vinegar, lactic acid, smoke... these all preserve food and are ingredients or methods of cooking that are also preservatives.

I can't imagine anyone believes that there are NO ingredients in these food products that act in a natural way to preserve the foods.

I'm sure when they say "no preservatives" they might mean things like sorbic acid, non-naturally occurring sulfites, benzoic acid, sodium nitrate,etc.... not things like lemon juice, wine, salt, vinegar sugar, vitamin c and other food items that naturally act as preservatives/antimicrobials.

It's not for everyone....

They don't claim to be Salt Free.
They don't claim to be Low Sodium
They don't claim to be Fat Free.
They don't claim to be Low Fat.
They don't claim to be Sugar Free.
They don't claim to be Low Calorie.
They don't claim to be Heart Healthy.
They don't claim to be Cholesterol Free.
They don't claim to be Saturated Fat Free.
They don't claim to be a good source of Fiber
They don't claim to be a good source of Healthy Whole Grain.
They don't claim to be Diabetic Approved.
They don't claim to be Organic.
They don't claim to be Locally Grown.
They don't claim to be Raw.
They don't claim to be Free Range.
They don't claim to be Monsanto Free.
They don't claim to be Allergen Free.
They don't claim to be Perfect for Every Person.

Nowhere on the packaging or the website are they making any of these claims and yet people keep coming and blasting them for failing to adhere to claims they haven't made.

They only claim to be a Low Carb option for people who are looking for a quick, convenient, frozen meal that they can have in all phases of the Atkins Plan.

They are pretty much the same as Lean Cuisine, Smart Ones, Weight Watchers or any other frozen meal producer out there. Expecting them to be more than they are offering to be is about as logical as being mad at water for not being dry.

the highest Total Carbohydrates is 11g for the Meatloaf Portabello. That has 4 grams of fiber. So if you count all carbs, it's only 11g, and if you count net carbs it's 7g net. So the highest meal is still within induction levels if you are trying to keep under 20g. You'd have to adjust your other meals to be 9g of carbs ( total or net, however you count 'em)

Since Atkins Nutritionals count Net Carbs, having two of these meals in one day would still have you under 20g of carbs.

Thank you Metqa. I feel exactly the same way. No one is forcing anyone to eat them. Just don't eat them if you don't like what's in them. Simple as that.

I love having them in my freezer. And I love the chicken pot pie. It's my favorite so far but I haven't got to taste them all.

I really didn't care for the breakfast scramble with the chorizo. I won't buy that one again.

Some of them are 4&5 net carbs so technically, you could eat 3 of them a day and be under or at 20g net carbs for the day. I wouldn't do that, they are pretty calorie dense, but you "could".

Ha, I guess you are right! I guess that's what some folks "fear". haha, if I could afford to buy all my food premade I'd probably do it for convenience, but there are too many meals I like that nobody will market for markup, so I'll keep cooking.

Is Chirozi a type of sausage? I never buy breakfasty frozen meals( usually sugary, bread and bland egg dishes) but I bought these for taste testing. Eggs really are so easy to make but I can see keeping a couple of them in the work fridge if I wake up late and have to dash out without being able to prepare a proper breakfast. I've never tried freezing scrambled eggs.

I usually don't buy breakfast either but I just wanted to try them all lol. Yes chorizo is a sausage. I don't know if it was the chorizo I didn't like or the peppers in it but it just tasted funny to me. The farmhouse breakfast scramble was really good, though.

Okay, I'm gonna try the chirozo scramble for dinner tonight then, cause I'm curious. Actually if I ever eat "breakfast" foods, I prefer them for lunch or dinner instead of breakfast time. For Breakfast I prefer dinnerish type foods like steak and sauteed vegetable or stew or something significant. Eggs and pancakes and such just make me feel nauseated sometimes for breakfast. but I can eat the heck out of some eggs for lunch or dinner!

I didn't care for the tex-mex scramble either ending up picking out the peppers that helped somewhat. The meatloaf tasted like a piece of beef, but to me had no meatloaf flavor, edible but probably won't buy it again. My walmart only had a couple of choices so I am looking forward to trying more of them.

I just had the chirozo scramble. Well, that was interesting. I think I've not had chirozo before, I didn't expect it to be spicy. It took a moment to get used to, but It was okay. It wasn't special, but it tasted better than what I could make in a hurried pinch.

There is some in AZ! Woot. Now I have to make it to wally world to get some for work. I will prolly pass on the chorizo. I know, I know I am an arizonian and I don't care for it. Bad me. LOL. I may have just over-chorizoed myself when I moved here. I used to eat it every day!

I figured out I hate chorizo AFTER I bought it and made a quiche with it....not my thing.

I am going to buy a couple this weekend to keep at work for emergencies too - although it's rare I'm without anything to eat there.

They only claim to be a Low Carb option for people who are looking for a quick, convenient, frozen meal that they can have in all phases of the Atkins Plan.

And the other day I was in a fix with no time to eat. Voila. Five minutes later I'm eating a low carb quickie and 5 minutes after that I was out the door. Perfect in a pinch. Will keep in freezer all the time just for that.
