My Cheap Lunch: PC Blue Menu Chili

If you've been glued to the TV watching the Winter Games like I've been, you've no doubt you've seen the ad featuring Galen Weston talking about President's Choice Blue Menu products.

So today I'm reviewing an item from their healthier Blue Menu which apparently has more of the good stuff: omega 3, fibre and less of the bad stuff: calories, fat and sodium.

From the over 400 products in their PC Blue Menu line, I tried the vegetarian chili. (I wasn't quite ready to do the meat version, -- canned meat isn't really my thing you know?) To be honest, I was a bit skeptical. I tend to avoid instant and microwavable foods, partly because I live with someone who is a certifiable microwave-phobe - I kid you not.

But before I knew it, I had demolished my microwavable container of vegetarian chili. It had good texture and a nice flavour. I also liked that it wasn't too salty. And at $2.50 a pop, it made for an economical and convenient lunch.
