Dear Lean Cuisine,

Got an idea for you guys.

Lean Cuisine, right now you've got your meals organized into neat little categories like Spa Cuisine, Casual Eating, and Dinnertime Selects- which I think was a fabulous idea.

But would it be possible for you to cater a little more to people like me? People who don't eat veggies, yet still want to try to eat within a healthy calories range?

How about a "Picky Eaters" line? Then I wouldn't have to pick off the red peppers and tomatoes from my Pesto Chicken Flatbread Melt, which is absolutely yummy once I've removed those little red offenders.

And my mom and I loved your Chicken a l'Orange until you added broccoli years back. And I absolutely crave the Sesame Chicken, but I hate picking those damn green beans out!

I also ran into a little issue with the Chicken Club Panini yesterday. I was trying to pick out the tomatoes, but kept accidentally picking off the bacon- unacceptable! I love bacon!


I know there are more people like me- I know this because a few of them work here in my office and we laugh (and cuss) about this as we are doctoring our meals in the breakroom at lunchtime.

So if you wouldn't mind creating a new line just for us, we'd be ever-thankful. And I'd do a blog post about it to get the word out!


Pin It!

THANK YOU! I have been saying forever that I'd eat way more Lean Cuisines if they didn't have those disgusting red peppers (I hate peppers more than anything) and other gross veggies! They definitely need a "picky eater" line!

Sherrie said...

LOL! You are sooo funny. While I don't mind the red peppers, I could do without some of the other veggies (green beans, green peas, etc). I'm super picky when it comes to eating those frozen meals...have to find some more I like. Maybe LC will listen to you! You've got pull you know. :)

M said...

I'm okay with the Lean Cuisine foods, but good lord I feel like I need to eat two.....or more.

But I guess that's the whole point of dieting isn't it?? Actually eating less :)

Allyson and Dave said...

I could not agree more. I usually pick off the veggies and add cheese. Everything is better with cheese.

Beth said...

I think they need to omit carrots from all frozen food, then I'd be all set.

Sasha said...

I had no idea so many people would agree with me! Well, there only have been 4 of you so far, but it's a start! Let's bombard them with emails! No more veggies!

Shanna said...

Could they also make more without the meat?!? I get sick of the same old cheese pizza routine or santa fe rice and beans!

Michelle said...

You've been awarded! Check my blog!

Chic Runner said...

Seriously I agree with you! Sorry I'm not perfect and don't love EVERYTHING on all their stuff! Picky Eaters Unite!

Sarah said...

Hey! I could've written that!!!

That Girl said...

People at my work make fun of me because I dont like all that gross veggie stuff. I can eat raw veggies but cooked is a whole other story. blech.

Stephanie said...

I hate red peppers! And they seem to always be on those frozen meals! I don't have the patience to take the time to do all that work. SO, I stopped eating them...(plus I am still hungry after...)

MDO said...

AMEN!!!

JKW said...

So funny and so true!

Heather said...

And I was told I am the only adult who doesn't like veggies. Love it!! I always pick the vegetables out of frozen meals.

WPMomOf2 (jen) said...

OMG, I swear you are my twin! I do the same damn thing, especially with the Sesame Chicken. I hate the green beans, ha!!

Mama H said...

There are so many people at work that do the SAME thing! Excellent idea! I can't wait for Lean Cuisine to have their new commercial out with YOUR idea on it! At least you have lots of witnesses that can say we saw it here first! :-)

Kate said...

I'm the total opposite...I wish they made more meatless ones. There is something about frozen meat that kinda freaks me out but I like some of the dinners. So, I have to pick out the meat.

Prissy Southern Prep said...

Amen! :)

Special K said...

That's hilarious! I love vegetables and add them into everything! I'm always whining that they don't add MORE veggies! A serving for little to no points is a whole cup. Might as well fill my belly!

Megan@SortaCrunchy said...

HAHAHAHAHA!! I love this! The Picky Eaters line. PERFECT!!

Katy said...

This is funny...I would sit next to you and eat what you pick off and that could be my meal, then I'd really look like Miss Athleta (or her anorexic twin).
Email LC and tell them that there are people out there that are ALLERGIC to veggies.

Jaime said...

The red peppers are gross period..and this is coming from a veggie lover!!!!! However if they would make a veggie-less healthier meal my dh would be all over it!!!

That Chick Over There said...

LOL. I love peppers. :)

J said...

Wow. Has it ever occurred to you people that veggies are *good* for you? And that you WON'T lose weight eating hunks of "chicken" covered in melted Velveeta? And (duh) the portions are supposed to be small. If you eat two or more, might as well go get a combo from your McDee's. Hell, go ahead and super-size it. No wonder you people are fat. In fact, you deserve to be fat. Diets aren't supposed to be the tastiest food ever. Wow...You people are pathetic.
