Kashi – on sale and worth it

I am NOT a fan of frozen dinners! (I used to think)

Last week I picked up this Lemongrass Coconut Chicken Kashi frozen entree on sale at Sunflower Market. It was delicious!

It has 300 calories, 3 grams fat and 18 grams of protein (Reid and I shared - so half that amount). I was intrigued that it has quinoa in it - a grain-like food with an unusually high level of complete protein. So I found the Kashi website to see what else is available. They have cereals (I've had Go Lean before and it's great), crackers, snack bars, pilaf and frozen foods. I was particularly interested in frozen food since I am recovering from surgery and not a big fan of standing in the kitchen. I found the frozen foods page and they have all kinds of fun things. I love that you can click on each product and read reviews (scroll down).

Having spent three years in the Caribbean, I was drawn to this pizza:

Product description:

Caribbean Carnival Original Crust Pizza
Plantains, mangos, kale and fire-roasted red onions with mozzarella cheese and a sweet & spicy guava-infused, Jerk sauce on stone-fired Kashi 7 Whole Grains & Sesame® with flax seed crust.

Doesn't that sound great? Ohhhhh how I miss mangos!

After drooling my way through the website, I convinced my husband to take me to Target last night to see if, by chance, they had some of these dinners.

And - guess what!?

Not only did they have them, they were on SALE!  Life is good.

Here's our haul:

That ought to keep us in dinners during my down time.

Target sale prices:

  • Entrees - $2.88

  • Pizzas - $4.31

  • Pocket Bread Sandwiches - $1.77


If you register on the Kashi website, you will receive coupons.


  1. Awesome, I love that brand. There is another brand of frozen dinners (healthy choice maybe?) They have pumpkin ravioli and stuff and it is soo yummy.

  2. We hope the recovery is going well.
