Lisa, the Health Nut

I'm lisa and I loooove healthy food!  The lifestyle I chose to live is eating only natural or organic food products, minimally processed whenever possible.  What I can't stand is that people may  automatically assume all "health food" that I eat isn't flavorful or tasty.  THIS IS NOT TRUE!  Why would I eat stuff that doesn't taste good?  So my mission is to spread the word that "healthy" does not mean "tasteless".  Healthy food can be just as yummy as the not-so healthy types!   I'll let you know what foods are good, and which ones aren't so good. :)

Michael Angelo’s Spinach Vegetable Pocket Calzone 

Wednesday, August 25, 2010 7:34:10 PM

Michael Angelo’s provided me with some coupons to try some free products, and one of them I chose was the Spinach Vegetable Pocket Calzone. These type of frozen foods are my favorite- yummy insides, doughy crust- count me in!

This “pocket calzone” wasn’t round as I had sort of expected, but rather long and in the shape of a rectangle. I decided to microwave and then put in the toaster oven for a minute or so to crisp up the outside. After letting cool, I cut open a piece, and was pleased! This was actually quite tasty! The crust was crispy yet chewy, and sort of reminded me of the ends of pizza crust. The inside was very flavorful.It had a cheesy, oniony and garlicy flavor mostly, with a very slight hint of spice.  The spinach and the zucchini were a little chewy for my likings, but not bad. It sort of reminded me of a vegetable pizza, but without a tomato sauce.

Overall, I’m giving this 4 stars. I liked that it was a good size, and had a lot of flavor. I wasn’t a big fan of the zucchini and wish it was a bit more tender. I also saw that it also only had 1 gram of fiber per pocket calzone. Either way, I had this with some steamed broccoli and applesauce to make a meal, and was quite content!  : )
