Lean Cuisine's Spa Cuisine entrees
They're delectable, delicious -- and full of dietary fiber! That's how Nestle Prepared Foods, Solon, Ohio, talks about new Spa Cuisine entrees from Lean Cuisine.
"Delectable, taste-tempting ingredients, such as chili peanut sauce and roasted chicken are just some of the sophisticated flavor combinations offered in Spa Cuisine entrees from Lean Cuisine," the company says. "But the best part about these nutritious dishes is that they've been rejuvenated to contain five-six grams of dietary fiber in each serving – that's 20 percent of your recommended daily value."
Nestle said it refreshed the line with three new entrees and five new recipes for a total of 16 offerings in the line. Product developers say the product recipes are inspired by spa chefs nationwide.
"At Lean Cuisine, we strive to balance nutrition and great taste," said Kristin Gibbs, director of marketing. "Our Spa Cuisine entrees have five-six grams of fiber from nutritious ingredients like whole grains, fruits and veggies, and deliver on taste because we use high quality ingredients such as natural sea salt and no preservatives or artificial flavors - making it so easy to keep life delicious!"
