Evol foods review


Evol provided me with a few coupons to get some free meals for review. Unfortunately, my closest supermarket only carried the bowls, but fortunately that ended up not mattering one bit when I took my first bite. I am impressed with Evol's concoctions. They aren't your every day run of the mill type of microwavable dinners, nor do they taste anything close to it.

Evol differs from most microwavable meals, in that it is healthier. As healthy as you can get being nuked, anyway. All of these bowls are packed with a wallop of protein and fiber. They contain all natural ingredients and these bowls have an uncanny way of not tasting microwaved at all. At $5 a pop they are expensive, but definitely worth a treat once in a while.

I tried 3 delicious bowls.

  • Fire Grilled Steak 
  • Bean And cheese 
  • Chicken 
Fire grilled steak:  I was a bit disappointed in the minuscule pieces of steak this provided, and I think there were only about 5 that I could spot. Other than that, it was really good, cheesy, and hearty. The black beans  and cilantro lime pesto were a uniquely tasty combo.

21g Protein • 8g Fiber • Gluten Free • Net Wt. 9oz

Bean and cheese Enchilada: I really did expect this to be a glorified taco bell bowl, but It was not at all. It was really cheesy and I loved the flavorful combination of soft pinto beans with cilantro lime infused rice, and red enchilada sauce.

18g Protein • 8g Fiber • Vegetarian • Gluten Free • Net Wt. 9oz

Chicken Enchilada: Again with the same flavorful combinations of cilantro and pinto beans, only with chicken, corn and a green enchilada sauce this time. This one was my absolute favorite.

22g Protein • 7g Fiber • Gluten Free • Net Wt. 9oz

INGREDIENTS: Green Enchilada Sauce (Hatch Green Chilés, Tomatillos, Water, 
Tomatoes in Juice, Onions, Corn Starch, Garlic, Jalapeños, Cilantro, Salt, Lime 
Juice, Spices), Pinto Beans, Corn Tortillas (Corn Cooked with a Trace of Lime, 
Water), Cilantro Lime Chicken (Cage-Free White Meat Chicken Breast, Lime 
Juice, Canola Oil, Cilantro, Spices), Rice, Cheddar Cheese (Pasteurized Milk, 
Cheese Culture, Salt, Enzymes), Corn, Lime Juice, Cilantro, Salt, Black Pepper.

^^ Nothing hard to pronounce, every day all natural produce and cage free white meat chicken. They don't specify whether the chicken is veggie fed. It has healthy oils and some cheese cultures. It is gluten free, but they use milk ingredients. Though they are at the very last of the list, so I doubt a lot goes into it. 

These bowls tasted really fresh and different. I think they could have done a lot worse.  Honestly nothing like the sugar infused processed tv dinners 99% of the food market is made up of. They are going to make a convenient once in a while substitute for home cooked meals.

  5. These sound so good! I have been wanting to try these for a long time. The bean and cheese one sounds great. I like how you can use a regular oven for them too. I often find that sometimes the regular oven they taste better.
