New Gluten Free, Bold-Tasting Burritos from Artisan Bistro

Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 5.45.47 PM

Who doesn’t love a good burrito?  I’m excited to introduce you to the new gluten free frozen Burritos from Artisan Bistro, creator of organic and gluten free frozen breakfasts, entrées, burritos, bowls and bakes. With gluten free food up 63% since 2012 according to Mintel Group, and restaurant-quality frozen foods on the rise, the new Burritos make for a delicious, healthy and easy-to-cook meal option. Not to mention March is frozen food month so this comes at a perfect time!

“Many people are busy and barely finding time to eat on-the-run, so hand-held meal options have become wildly popular,” said Leo Griffin, Chief Executive Officer of Artisan Bistro Foods, Inc. “To create our Burritos, we took one of the nation’s favorite convenience foods and gave it our signature artisan upgrade with bold spices, clean proteins, and organic whole grains and vegetables that consumers can feel good about eating and feeding their families.”


Artisan Bistro burritos are made with a savory blend of high-quality ingredients including sustainable proteins, organic vegetables, grains and spices all wrapped in a one-of-a-kind gluten free, organic tortilla, Artisan Bistro Burritos are a tasty hand-held meal option crafted with bold flavors. Each Burrito contains at least 70 percent organic ingredients and has between 11-14 grams of protein, are non-GMO and include sustainable-caught wild Alaskan salmon, free-range chicken and premium organic vegetables, not to mention a variety of organic whole grains and legumes, including quinoa, lentils and garbanzo beans. 

Flavors include:


Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 5.46.57 PM


The Meatless Carnitas & Salsa Verde was my favorite. I think it had the most flavor. The Beef, Jack Cheese & Ancho Chili Chicken Tinga & Chipotle Meatless Carnitas & Salsa Verde all had delicious flavor and a nice big kick to them, so make sure you have a glass of water close by when you are eating any of these burritos. 

I didn’t like the Salmon Poblano burrito, I thought it had a very fishy-flavor. 

If you want to mix it up with your meals and have stress-free options available in your freezer for you to grab and eat quickly, you will love these delicious Artisan Bistro meals. Give yourself a night off from cooking every once in awhile, and still give your family something healthy to eat!

Artisan Bistro products can be found at health food stores and markets throughout NYC (including Westerly Natural Market, Health Smart, Health Nuts, and Health and Harmony, to name a few), as well as national grocery chains such as Whole Foods, Stop & Shop, Shop Rite, Shaw’s, Hannfords, and Targets throughout the country. The Burritos have been available since January, and have a suggested retail price of $3.79.

Tandoor Chef offers 15 gluten free frozen Indian meals & appetizers

Screen Shot 2015-03-01 at 4.46.05 PM

Wrapping up the month of March, which is National Frozen Food Month, I want to share with you a few new frozen foods I’ve tried this month, starting with Tandoor Chef. 

Tandoor Chef, produced by Deep Foods, is a second-generation family owned and operated leading manufacturer of restaurant quality, all natural frozen Indian meals.

Tandoor Chef offers 15 gluten free entrée and appetizer options! With their authentic Indian spices and flavors, and wide selection, you won’t have to sacrifice the robust flavors you love.

Gluten Free options include:

I tried the Chicken Biryani and Chicken Pad Thai. Both meals were restaurant quality. The Biryani was actually better than the take out I had last week. The aromas and smells that filled the kitchen as I was microwaving my meals were unreal. It smelled just like fresh, flavorful Indian food should smell. 

Overall I really enjoyed the flavors of both meals; the meat was tender and moist and the noodles and rice were cooked to perfection. You really would never know this was a microwaved frozen dish. My only complaint was the amount of sodium. With sodium levels of more than 800mg per meal it was a little too much for me. I got a few bites that were just way too salty. Tandoor Chef does offer “low sodium” meals with about 500mg, which is not low by my standards but much better and more tolerable.

The other con is some of the meals are somewhat high in calories and carbs, such as the Chicken Pad Thai. But there are a handful of meals 350 calories and less.


Chicken Pad Thai Nutritional Information

In the manufacturing of gluten free products, Tandoor Chef is careful to guarantee that they meet the necessary standards. They send products out to a certified lab on a regular basis to validate the claims are accurate.

 Did you know that Tandoor Chef also offers a wide variety of both vegetarian and vegan meals? Tandoor Chef offers 11 vegetarian meals and 6 vegan options. 

Tandoor Chef meals are available major retailers across the United States and Canada. In New York City, you can find them at Whole Foods, Westerly Natural Market, Health Food & Vitamin City, Health Nuts, and so many more. For a complete list of store locations click here.

You can even buy Tandoor Chef meals online via Amazon! At my local store, meals ranged from $3.99-$5.99 but when you buy on Amazon (cases of 8 or 12) the price is a little better.

New SweetLeaf® Organic Stevia Sweetener


If you’re looking for a better way to add sweetness to food and beverages look no further. SweetLeaf Stevia® Sweetener, the leading U.S. manufacturer of stevia and offers a full line of SweetLeaf Stevia products, available in convenient single-serving packets, liquid, powder, tabs and concentrate. And this month they are adding a NEW organic sweetener to their product line!

SweetLeaf Organic Stevia Sweetener offers the same great taste but is certified organic and verified non-GMO.

For those of you not familiar with SweetLeaf, it is a natural sweetener with zero calories, zero carbs, zero glycemic response and NO artificial ingredients. SweetLeaf provides a delicious natural sugar alternative and is ideal for anyone with diabetes, or watching their weight.


Organic Stevia has virtually unlimited uses for both sweet and savory dishes, ranging from desserts to sauces and salad dressings. I’ve been using it every day in my coffee, as I recently read an article about the negative health effects of Splenda, Equal, and other artificial sweeteners, I’ve vowed to NEVER consume those ever again!

One packet of Organic Stevia equals 2 tablespoons of sugar, so beware when baking or using as a sweetener in coffee or tea. I don’t even use a full pack with each cup of coffee, and I find it plenty sweet.

The new Organic Stevia Sweetener is available in 35 and 70 count packet boxes and 3.2 oz. shaker jar. You can purchase SweetLeaf products at stores throughout the US or online.

Vegetable Spiral Slicer (Spiralizer) Review


Do you want to eat healthier, lose weight, get in shape, eliminate carbs, go gluten free, eat paleo or just discover a new way to make pretty dishes?

A spiralizer transforms raw vegetables into pasta-like noodle shapes that are the perfect healthy alternative to carb heavy pasta. 

This compact spiral slicer work best with zucchini, but it can also be used for carrots, cucumbers and daikon radish. It also work with potatoes and sweet potatoes but you will have to peel the potato with a veggie peeler until it forms a smooth cylinder shape with a 1 1/2” diameter, and that’s just one more step, but it is worth the extra effort if you’re game!

Tuscan Chicken over Zucchini Noodles


I use mine so often now, especially on pasta and spaghetti nights. It only takes a minute or two for me to make my zucchini “noodles”. So it’s not a lot of extra time at all. This spiralizer has two noodle sizes – Angel Hair and Spaghetti.


There are several ways to incorporate spiral sliced veggies into your meal, the most popular is to use them instead of carb laden pasta. But they also make a beautiful and unique side dish (see Carrot Dill Twist in the bonus eBook), or can be used to make quiche, or, add the veggie noodles to your pasta dish as a lighter option, or the perfect way to sneak some veggies into your kids diet.

There are two types of spiralizers on the market, the compact spiral slicer (this one), and a more expensive tri-blade countertop model. The smaller, more compact spiral slicer is perfect for a quick spiralizing fix, it fits neatly in a drawer, it is more affordable, and all it really needs is a quick rinse after it’s finished. It’s easier to clean, works just as quickly and doesn’t take up tons of counter space.

The countertop model can slice a wider variety of vegetables, with up to 4 sizes, like beets, jicima, peppers and larger potatoes, however it is harder to clean and takes up a lot more space. I personally, think that it’s worth having both a countertop spiralizer and the Common Sense Goods compact spiral slicer.


The Spiralizer Bonus bundle also includes a handy cleaning brush, and a full color, pictures included, downloadable recipe eBook called “The Ultimate Veggie Noodle Recipe Collection”. This cookbook is in full color and includes pictures, unlike most other free eBooks.

Common Sense Goods gave me a 60% off code to share with my readers.

The promo code is VJG5JXQJ. The code has a $10 dollar value, meaning you’ll pay only $7 for their new spiralizer, that’s almost 60% off! It’s only good for the first 25 purchased, so it is first come first serve.

Bonus: They are also offering a $2 coupon to people who sign up for their mailing list.

Common Sense Goods offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so you can feel confident buying. If you don’t like it, just return it; 100% money back guarantee and hassle free.

Disclaimer: I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free.  Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
