Lean Pockets (and a Giveaway)

Have you tried Lean Pockets before? I recently tried out Lean Pockets for the first time and am sharing my experience today and also hosting a $100 Visa gift card giveaway at the end of this post!

I purchased and tried Lean Pockets White Meat Chicken Jalapeno & Cheese with a pretzel bread crust. The description immediately appealed to me. I love pretzel bread, chicken and cheese, and I couldn’t quite believe that something that sounded so gooey and delicious could actually be a sensible meal option. The pockets contain reduced fat 100% real cheese and do not have any artificial flavors. Their convenient packaging and preparation also makes them the perfect post workout snack.

These last few years, I’ve definitely made some significant changes to my eating habits and lifestyle. While I still have a sweet tooth and love baking, I’m sure most of you have noticed that I also share much healthier meal recipes and haven’t been baking quite as much. A few years ago, I was extremely overstressed, overworked, without much time for eating right and exercise. I think all those baked goods were partially the result of emotional eating. Two years ago, I made some big changes in my life, and I’ve been so much happier since. Yes, I’m still working what seems like all the time, and still up late at night finishing writing my posts, but I’ve also made a very conscious effort to make time to exercise every day and eat better. These decisions result in me feeling more energetic, balanced and happy.

However, when I finish a particularly grueling yoga session, I leave class starving. A little snack just isn’t going to cut it and if I don’t get something substantial in me quickly, I end up stuffing myself with unhealthy snacks. Which is why these Lean Pockets are so perfect. They heat up in just a few minutes and the end result is a mini meal that is completely satisfying. It’s flavorful, full of gooey melted cheese– and pretzel bread crust!! My favorite.

Each box comes with two pockets. They are heated in a sleeve that actually helps the outer edge of the bread to crisp up even though they are heated in the microwave.

Lean Pockets come in a variety of flavors and can be found in the freezer aisle at Target, Walmart and most local grocers. The suggested MSRP is $2.29-2.49.
