Life Choices


As a Life Choices Ambassador, I had the opportunity to try some of their food with my family.   Since I received my coupons, I was able to cook one meal with the Chicken strips.   Since then my oven died on me – literally!   And yesterday I received a call that it will be replaced after all thanks to the extended warranty we had purchased with the oven.   I will receive the new oven in a few days. 

But this post is not about my adventure with my oven…   So let me present you the Life Choices Chicken Strips!

Our Thoughts

First and foremost, I must say that I was disappointed with the selection that my grocery store had.   I was expecting more of their products offered in the health section but I could only find the chicken products and some pizzas.   I was so looking forward to try the multigrain pierogies but had to choose another product for the purpose of this review.

But we love chicken so I opted for the chicken strips.   The bag is small for a family of six but surprisingly enough we were able to feed everyone with only one bag!

The taste is wonderful and you can easily savor the difference between these chicken strips and the regular ones that you can buy at any grocery store.    I found that there was also more flavors in it.   All my kids devoured their plate and asked for more.  *grin*

I find the price a bit expensive for the size of the bag.   Would I buy this on a regular basis?  I don’t think so mainly because of the price.  However, if I had someone in my family who would have health issues, I would definitively consider Life Choices as I could taste a major difference while eating the chicken strips.   I am impressed with the fact that they are using grain-fed animals and that the chicken strips are made with high quality ingredients.
