Our latest review comes from Wildtree, with the independent representative Amanda. She was so kind as to let us review one of Wildtree's skillet meal seasoning mixes.
It's important to my family to eat as healthy as possible and avoid allot of unhealthy products. Wildtree is an awesome product for having NO preservatives, additives, MSGs, or food dyes. They mostly sell mixes, like seasonings, bread mixes, salsa...It's a fairly long list of products. You should check them out! I have an ad link for Amanda's Wildtree on the side of this post.

We were able to try the Cheddar & Herb Skillet Meal seasoning packet.
|I was a little disappointed that a natural company wasted SO much space and plastic to send a small package.|

|Each box comes with 2 packages of seasonings. Each packet serves 5 people.|

We made the first meal at a friends house while we watched the football game. I did not season the meat myself to taste since the box did not specify to. I used penne noodles, which was recommended on the box (though you can use any kind you want). The general consensus between four adults was this meal was a little bland. Good, but lacking oomph in flavor. We added some parmesan cheese and it was pretty good.
A few days later we had a few more friends over to try the second package. I seasoned the meat myself this time with some oregano, basil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper while it was sauteing before continuing with the package directions. Unfortunately I did not get a picture of that meal before it was scarfed up. It still had a very light flavor, but it was good! I also used egg noodles instead of penne this time. FYI, you can choose between beef, chicken, or turkey for this particular skillet meal. I chose beef. You can also add spinach, broccoli, and onion if you choose. The second time around I added some spinach.
I will say this, it is a great meal to make quickly and have a simple flavor for the family. PLUS my 20 month old daughter, with whom I have been struggling to get to eat meat and noodles lately, as well as pretty much any food NOT yogurt, cheese, crackers, toast, cereal and fruit, gobbled it right up! It was a light flavor that she didn't spit it out, and a good enough flavor she FINALLY ate something good for her! We just might have to get some more of that, if that's what it takes to get her to eat real food!!!
There are a ton more Wildtree products I would LOVE to try, and some sauces I think my husband would love, like their beer bread mix. They even have a whole wheat beer bread mix!
