Dr. Gourmet's Food Reviews



While it's best and healthiest to make your own foods, at Dr. Gourmet we realize that sometimes you just can't make it into the kitchen to cook. Dr. Gourmet has reviewed some common convenience foods, ingredients, and restaurant selections so that you know what's worth eating - and what's not.

Latest review: Cheese Ravioli in a Mushroom Cream Sauce and the Vegetable Enchilada Bowl from Weight Watchers' Smart Ones

The first review we have today from Weight Watchers' Smart Ones is a revisiting of a dish from 2016, their Cheese Ravioli in a Mushroom Cream Sauce. I'll be honest: I checked to see if we had already reviewed this product while I was standing in the frozen foods aisle of the grocery store and would not have brought it in for review if I had seen it listed on our website. We have plenty of other products we initially reviewed much further in the past that are due for a revisiting that we don't need to be reviewing something from just three years ago.

Here's the problem: while the meal is titled "Cheese Ravioli in a Mushroom Cream Sauce" (230 calories, 530mg sodium, 2g fiber), which might reasonably lead you to believe that it's vegetarian, the fact is that it's not vegetarian. Weight Watchers' Smart Ones »
