The dream became a reality here at Cooking Light just a few weeks ago, as our own private food label went live. That’s right – we are no longer just tempting you with mouth-watering pictures and recipes on the pages of a glossy magazine… we are bringing it from our kitchen to yours – ready made to make life just a little easier, and a lot more delicious. We’re thrilled to call BJ’s Wholesale Club our new first home – look for our 14 new varieties in the prepared foods section. All products have been signed, sealed, and delivered with our picky editorial stamp of approval – only products that have met our trusted nutritional guidelines and tasty standards make the cut. These delicious, easy meals are ready when you are – with all the goodness you’d expect from Cooking Light recipes. Get excited. This is only the beginning.

Here’s the healthy, flavor-packed lineup:

2 Fresh raviolis (Delightful with a splash of extra-virgin olive oil, a spoonful of pesto, or fresh tomato sauce):  Chicken & Spinach; and Heirloom Tomato & Spinach
