Why I Fell In Love With EVOL Foods
I’ve falling in love guys. If you follow me on Instagram then you know I love good food and experimenting in my kitchen. But, you would never guess that I’m currently deeply infatuated with frozen food. Yes, I, the lady who considers everything she didn’t make struggle food, loves frozen meals.
Have I gone mad?
No. I’m completely sane, I swear! I’m not talking about that nasty Kid Cuisines of the 90’s or even Stouffer’s. I actually avoid majority of this section. However, I had a chance to indulge some more into a brand I recently posted on and wanted to share some more.
Remember my review on EVOL Truffle Parmesan Mac & Cheese? Well, let me tell why you should give their food a try.
What’s so good about EVOL?
Well first things first that name is dope. Love backwards, genius. However, there are even more reasons to love this brand, let me count the ways.
1. Simple Ingredients
These days it’s pretty amazing to find products that I can read and understand every ingredient. I no longer have to hesitate and ask myself did I get too much Butylated Hydroxytoluene this week.
Look at the ingredients for their Chicken Tiki Masala:
This is basically Clean Eating!
When was the last time you purchased a food product with ingredients this simple?
2. The Taste
EVOL uses a lot of ingredients that aren’t normally found in frozen foods, like truffles, sage, kimchi. This equals a lot of flavor in food that takes 2 minutes to cook in a microwave. While I will admit not every product is perfectly seasoned. The Butternut Squash & Sage Ravioli and Tiki Chicken Masala are a perfect example of how flavorful their foods are. Both of these meals are prepared for 2 people, and let’s just say I became two people on both days. However, I have to be honest the Ginger Sesame Sweet Potato was bland. It sounds so good, but I couldn’t place a single flavor. So EVOL isn’t a prefect brand, but this is just one of many other options.

3. Unique Ingredients
Like I said previously, the ingredients found in EVOL products stand out compared to any other brand in the frozen food aisle.
If you didn’t know before breakfast foods are a struggle for me. I love to cook but never before cheese burgers are time appropriate. I will literally eat left over dinner for breakfast, even if it’s ribs, to avoid dealing with breakfast. Leftovers, by the way, are always appropriate no matter what time it is. The easiest way I’ve found to make breakfast is with Jimmy Dean’s breakfast bowls. Problem is the ingredients are ?!?!
Jimmy Dean vs EVOL
I’m not sure what’s in Jimmy Dean’s Products, I just know it’s not basil pesto like in my favorite scramble cup so far. The biggest issue I have with EVOL’s scramble cups is I wish there was more food in that delicious cup. I’m a big eater; I just told you guys I ate a meal for two by myself. And if you couldn’t guess I broke up with Jimmy for a better breakfast bae. Definitely, go and get that Egg, Basil Pesto, Potato and Cheese!
Although I prefer fresh fruits and veggies and applaud those who follow the Only Shop Outside of the Aisle rules, it’s hard and frozen food is well…easy. It’s also quick and most of the time the quality can be consider acceptable. But, I’m millennial and I don’t want to settle for acceptable. I want to say “damn this is good” every time I consume something and for me quality has a big impact on taste. You can’t replace andouille sausage with cheap hot dogs and call it gumbo. Quality is everything!
Let’s talk about this uncured bacon they generously add to many of their foods. It’s good. The end. Let me tell you guys a little secret, I’ve never had Brussels sprouts until I had the Balsamic Brussels Sprouts with Uncured Bacon and Parmesan. It is absolutely amazing. That bacon is so legit they added it to gluten-free Mac & Cheese and I didn’t even miss the gluten. Quality bacon is always a blessing, Amen.
EVOL has vegan, vegetarian, lean & fit, gluten free options. There’s something for everyone and it’s all delicious.

6. Budget Friendly
I’m a proud budget queen. I’m twenty-four and still waiting on my lottery check to clear, but they keep telling me I didn’t win! So, since I’m temporarily financially challenged (fingers crossed) I’m always looking for a deal. This can be tough for a girl with champagne taste and a Four Loko budget. But, even I don’t mind EVOL’s prices.
Here’s the thing, the price might seem like a lot for the frozen food aisle when the competition it selling full meals at half the price. However, what the competition does not provide is REAL FOOD. If you want to buy $2 GMO meals then go for it, but I’ll stick with the good stuff.
Here’s another one of my favs. their fajita cups are really good and there’s 11g of protein in this thing. I like to add sour cream on mine, but its fine without.
I loved this one! Can’t go wrong with Sriracha.
Shredded Chicken & Caramelized Onion Street Taco w/ Guacamole
Sorry that one is missing, I was hungry and it was good. (Moment of honesty the tortilla is not my favorite but the fillings is yummy) The guac is included with the meal, btw.
Disclaimer: I have to keep it 100 with you guys, EVOL was nice enough to send me these awesome meals. However, my opinions are 100 percent mine and I haven’t received monetary compensation to share it. I recommend these products because, I still buy them( see previous post) and check the photos the food is legit.
