Low Protein Puff Pastry

Hey my dear readers,

I cannot point out often enough that you really need to watch out for new foods – wow I just ordered at Glutex Austria recently and couldn’t believe that they have low protein puff pastry in their range of products. WOW. I always wanted to have something like that.

One plate has only 7 mg of phe – but very high in calories – 454 kcal per plate. You can see in the photo, one pizza bag is made of one plate. The thing I have to whinge about is the calorie amount. :o) You should rather only have one at a time together with a salad or something 🙂

It really opens a lot of possibilities, you could make sweet dessert with it as well. You fill it and bake it for app. half an hour and then it’s ready.

This is before I pushed the tray into the oven:

And this is what it looked like after baking:

As you can see from the last picture, the consistency really is comparable to real puff pastry. It’s very tasty. I like it. If you live in Europe, you might also have a look at the page and you might want to order one or another thing (I ordered several things and will post about it shortly… they also have great other things. very unique on the market as far as I know).

Have a great day.

X-Pot… Delicious :)

Hello there,
I am trying out constantly all the new products which appeal to me. Another product which is new on the German market (it’s from the British company Firstplay) is this one. It’s a convenience-product, you only have to add water and wait some minutes before you can eat. So it’s very nice when you’re at work etc.

 

I tried the taste “India” (with Curry and lamb flavour). There are also two other tastes but I haven’t tried out yet, it’s “Asia” (sweet-sour sauce with chicken-flavour) and “America” (beacon and sausage flavour).

 

I loved the Indian X-Pot, but I’m not sure whether I want to buy it again. Preparation was as easy as promised. But I think the size of the cup is pretty small, it contains 60 g which is 19mg Phe and 139 kcal. So it’s more a snack, than a real menue and for this a price of more than 3 € (which is around 2 $) I find it rather expensive for a snack that doesn’t leave you full and satisfied.

 

Here is a picture of the ready prepared X-Pot:

 

 

 

I also wondered whether it’s so good to add boiling water into a plastic bowl since obviously if you trust in the news, the water out of plastic bottles is not too healthy as well and the water is not heated during filling process or after, but well I guess tahts another topic 😉 Preparation is also possible in a cup, so it’s up to everyone how to have this snack 🙂

 

Here’s a link to Firstplay’s homepage, unfortunately I could not find this certain product in their listing of products…

Please consider, as always, I’m not responsible for the content of the Firstplay-Homepage, since it has nothing to do with this blog.
What is your experience with ready-to-serve-products? What kind of low protein products of this kind are available in your country? How often do you eat them?

Food Review: Promin Pasta in Sauce Cheese Broccoli

Hi Everyone,

today you’re reading a new review on pasta in sauce from Promin.

This is what the packaging looks like. one bag contains 4 sachets with 66g content.

It’s just as easy to prepare as the other taste with tomatoe herb sauce. It only takes up to 15 minutes. I really like it, even though I am not into broccoli. The cheesy taste is great! It goes along well with a nice salad or some veggies!

One sachet contains 246 kcal, 1,6g proteins which is 63mg phe and only 1,5g fat.

Here’s a pic of the ready prepared meal!

Have you ever tried this or other low phe meals which are almost ready to serve? If so which do you like best?

Food Review: Promin Pasta Shells in a Low Protein Tomato Pepper Herb Sauce

Hi everyone,

I wanted to post this review for ages but I had problems with my camera and tried it with the mobile phone of my fiancé and FINALLY I got the pictures so I can write you this review 🙂

Promin has some very tasty products and today I want to introduce the PKU Pasta Shells in a low protein tomato Pepper & Herbs sauce.

I think that already the packaging is very inviting. One buying size is a small bag with 4 sachets of 72 g, which means 4 small portions. One sachet has a phe amount of 29mg.

The preparation is pretty easy, you only need 275ml of cold water to stir in and bring it to boil, don’t forget to stir regularly. Then reduce the heat to a lower level and let it cook for 15-18 minutes without adding the cover. Thats all 🙂

Here is the picture of the prepared meal:

It not only looks delicious, it also tastes delicious. The sauce has an absolutely tasty seasoning which makes this meal to a favourite one when I need a quick prepared meal. And of course the phe amount of 29 mg is also fantastic. Low protein and so tasty!

The only thing I do have to mourn about is that the sachets of 72g is a very small portion. It might look a lot on the picture, but for a big hunger you’d rather take two sachets.

What do you think of the Promin products? Have you tried out this one or others? Would you like to try it out?

For all of you who don’t know yet the promin products, here is the link to their homepage:
