Dr. Gourmet's Food Reviews

While it's best and healthiest to prepare your own meals from scratch, at Dr. Gourmet we realize that sometimes you just can't make it into the kitchen to cook. With over 1,000 convenience meals reviewed and counting, Dr. Gourmet is the largest source of unbiased frozen food reviews online.

Our motto? "We eat it, so you don't have to." We look for widely-available frozen meals and choose the healthiest options for our unbiased reviews. If there's a frozen food you would like us to review, send us an email at webmaster@drgourmet.com and tell us about it!

This week's review: Pastas from Manini's Gluten Free

Gluten-free frozen meals continue to proliferate, and as a person with Celiac myself, I can't complain (much). It's nice to know that I have nearly as many poor options in the frozen foods market as those who can consume wheat gluten.

Today's meals were spotted in a local specialty grocery store (think Whole Foods Market, Bristol Farms, or Balducci's), but for those living outside the areas these grocery stores serve, these frozen meals are also available for delivery via Amazon Fresh.

There's a significant problem here, however: all of these frozen meals are actually 2 servings. Read this week's review »
