The trouble with most frozen meals is that to compensate for their lack of flavor, companies pile on the salt and sugar. While this may trick your mind into thinking the food is satisfying, it’s not doing you any favors when it comes to your health. In a market that’s saturated with these types of foods, it’s nice to know that you finally have a nutritious option in the freezer aisle. Luvo prides itself on building meals that have plenty of flavor, without any of the ingredients you don’t need. Just how do we do it? Registered Dietitians Ellie Krieger and Samantha Cassetty weigh in on flavor.

It’s all about building flavor! Ellie Krieger, host of Ellie’s Real Good Food, knows that’s the method good cooks use to make food taste delicious. It’s all about the aromatics – the onions and garlic, as well as the herbs and spices. Adding these components can turn any so-so dish into an amazing dish.

Building flavor this way is how you can eliminate or decrease the need for extra salt and sugar. And that’s something Sam Cassetty says, Luvo does well. It’s the goal of the brand to have meals that have plenty of flavor, but aren’t bogged down with lots of saturated fat, salt or refined sugars. The meals are built just like they would be built in a professional kitchen, with many layers of great flavor. In fact, you’ll notice the ingredient list of each Luvo meal boasts plenty of these flavor-boosting components.

And as an added bonus, these ingredients – the aromatics, herbs and spices, also provide nutrition. We’re talking vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that help keep your body healthy and nourished. So it just makes sense to build meals this way. Luckily we know that, and now you do too!
