Over the years I’ve come to really appreciate frozen foods. Although I do prefer and advocate fresh foods first and foremost, frozen foods can be just as nutritious and delicious if you know what you’re buying and what you’re freezing. Most frozen foods are partially cooked and freezed right away to seal in the freshness and taste so you’re not really missing much there and if you cook and freeze your own food, then you know exactly what ingredients you have in there. But what happens when there are days where you don’t have a lot of time to cook lunch or eat a quick dinner? There are lots of frozen food companies out on the market and deciding which ones are right for you and your family can be a daunting game. Luckily, there are several natural grocery stores near my home so I can always pick up some healthy and nutritious frozen foods.
One company which we came across is a company called PJ’s Organics. I thought it was a cute name at first and decided to read the labels and ingredients to see what they’re all about. Turned out they make only organic burritos with natural ingredients you don’t have to play a guessing game with. Their organic and all-natural burritos are simple yet incredibly delicious and satisfying and they’re filled with natural meat and vegetables. Since I’m a vegetarian, I didn’t try the meat-filled burritos but my son and husband did and they really enjoyed it. Although the serving is about the same as you would expect any other frozen burritos to be, there are a lot more ingredients in the filling and the tortilla wraps are made with organic wheat flour so they’re a lot more satisfying.
PJ’s Organics started in a small town in Northern California from an outdoor loving fellow who loved burritos as much as he did surfing in the California sun. When he couldn’t find any healthier versions of frozen burritos out on the market, PJ’s Organics was born and to this day, they still make their tortillas and burritos from scratch. And since healthy food and a healthy lifestyle is important to the founder, he also promised to use only organic ingredients and no added preservatives, artificial colors or flavors, and no genetically-modified ingredients. In fact, if you looked at the list of ingredients on their Traditional Chicken Burrito, you’ll find only organic white chicken meat, organic black beans, organic white short grain rice, organic tomato paste, organic onion, organic cheddar cheese, and a few other organic spices for extra flavor. Steak and Cheese is my husband’s favorite because of the flavorful organic beef steak and he likes to cook it in the toaster oven to give the burrito an extra crunchy crust. And my son really enjoys the Breakfast Burrito which is filled with organic turkey, eggs, corn, and cheese.
Currently PJ’s Organics burritos comes in the following flavors: Traditional Chicken, Steak and Cheese, Breakfast, Skinny, Five-Layer and Southwestern-Style. Hopefully they’ll make more flavors soon because their burritos taste wholesome and really unique and I think it’s great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or any time. They’re perfect for a quick bite to eat and virtually any one of any age can enjoy them. You can also find them in most natural grocery stores in the frozen section.
PJ’s Organics was interested in having me try their burritos so they sent me some product coupons to pick up any flavors that I wanted. So we bought all of their flavors just to be fair. They also want to give three LUCKY readers of Happymomblogger a chance to try their products as well with 2 FREE product coupons to each 3 winners. So how do you win these wonderful burritos?
