Happi Foodi’s Keto Bowls have made following a keto lifestyle tastier and easier. Learn more about Happi Foodi’s low carb frozen meals and where you can find them at a store near you.
I have mentioned before that keto can be a bit challenging for me when life gets busy. With the kids back in school and sports, life is definitely getting a bit hectic again.
I tend to struggle in two areas, quick meals and snacks for on-the-go. I’ve found a bunch of on-the-go foods that I love, but haven’t found many solutions for quick meals that I really enjoy until recently.
When I was asked to try Happi Foodi’s Keto Bowls, I jumped at the opportunity.
What Is Happi Foodi?
I hadn’t heard of Happi Foodi until very recently, but I’ve since seen the selection of Happi Foodi meals and products at my local Walmart continue to expand.
Happi Foodi creates chef-inspired meals. They have made it really easy to enjoy innovative, restaurant-quality, low carb meals at an affordable price.
Where I have found other frozen meals lack, Happi Foodi excels. The quality of the meats and vegetables in their flavor-packed dishes is outstanding. Honestly, these are the best frozen meals I’ve tried in regards to taste and texture. The fact they are low in carbs and higher in protein makes them even better!
Read what I thought about each meal that I tried below.
Happi Foodi Keto Bowls Review
Sausage & Rice Cauliflower Hemp Seed Breakfast Bowl
This breakfast bowl was the first Happi Foodi bowl that I tried. It’s made with scrambled eggs, crumbled pork sausage, and cheese over riced cauliflower and hemp seeds.
I found this meal to be really flavorful with amazing texture throughout. I love that not a single ingredient dominates the overall flavor of this bowl. Cauliflower can be really strong, but it takes on the flavor of all the spices and cheese. The sausage is perfectly seasoned, as well.
I honestly expect frozen meals to be watery, similar to how a lot of frozen egg and cauliflower meals can be once they are cooked. However, it seems as if Happi Foodi thought of this. There are some thickeners in the ingredient list, like potato starch. I’m assuming it’s a very small amount, but it’s enough that whatever liquid is present during cooking thickens into almost a gravy.
The bowl was also much more filling that I’d typically expect from a frozen meal.
Will it work for strict keto? No, there are some ingredients that those who are following a more strict diet may not want to eat.
With only 8 grams of net carbs per bowl, it’s definitely a good choice for those who aren’t super strict or who are simply trying to lower their daily carb intake. It should be noted that this meal is also high in fat and protein. There are 28 grams of protein and 48 grams of fat per bowl.
I would 100% recommend this breakfast bowl.
Southwestern Style Chicken Bowl
I was most excited to try this bowl. I love everything southwestern and this meal was no exception.
This meal is is made with diced chicken, cauliflower rice, onions, jalapeños, red bell peppers, and cheddar cheese in a spicy sauce. There are only 4 net carbs per serving along with 23 grams of protein and 12 grams of fat.
I’m not only impressed with the amazing flavor, but super happy with the quality and texture of the chicken. The meat in frozen meals can often have a weird texture to it, but the chicken in Happi Foodi’s bowls has the same texture and flavor as if you just cooked it yourself.
The spices are perfect and the heat from the jalapeño peppers really starts to hit you after a couple of bites. So, if you don’t like spicy food, you may want to skip this one.
Again, there is potato starch, that I assume is meant to help thicken the sauce and not every ingredient is strict keto-friendly. This is an amazing meal if you’re following a keto diet that isn’t super strict or trying to cut carbs but without cutting out flavor.
With just 240 calories per bowl, this one an excellent choice for those following a keto or low carb diet with the goal to lose weight.
This is the second Happi Foodi bowl that I tried and would absolutely recommend it.
Beef Shepard’s Pie Inspired Bowl
The next bowl that I tried is this Beef Shepard’s Pie Inspired Bowl. It’s a low carb spin on traditional Shepard’s Pie filled with ground beef and veggies with a mashed cauliflower topping.
Each bowl has 7 grams of net carbs, 19 grams of protein and 15 grams of fat. There are just 260 calories per serving. Again, it’s not ideal for strict keto diets, but is an excellent choice for those who aren’t super strict regarding ingredients or just looking to lower their overall daily carb intake.
The flavor is once again, very delicious. Happi Foodi is really doing a great job adding plenty of seasonings to their meals. The ground beef is very beefy in flavor, but the flavors of each vegetable comes through as well.
I am very picky when it comes to ground beef. I like for it to be as lean as possible, mostly for the texture. In the ingredients list it states that the ground beef is not more than 20% fat. I typically prefer less than 5%.
I personally wouldn’t buy this one again, but if you don’t mind higher fat ground beef, then it’s definitely a delicious choice. The flavor was really good!
Beef, 3 Cheese, & Eggplant Lasagna Inspired Bowl
Next up is this Beef, 3 Cheese, & Lasagna Inspired Bowl. The three cheeses include Parmesan, mozzarella, and ricotta cheese.
This bowl is a little higher in net carbs and sugar. There are 14 grams of net carbs and 9 grams of sugar per meal. There is also 27 grams of protein. This meal is a great choice for those trying to lower their carb intake or up their protein, but might be a little harder to squeeze into a keto diet depending on how many net carbs you allow on a daily basis.
Between the higher carb and sugar counts, and the fact that I don’t like eggplant, I had my fiancé try this one.
I did sneak a taste of the beef and sauce and found it to be really flavorful. It’s definitely well seasoned and more robust in flavor. He agreed that the sauce is really good and said that the pieces of eggplant had a great texture and flavor as well.
While this bowl just isn’t for me, my fiancé did say he would eat it again,
Cheddar Parm Chicken Bowl
This Cheddar Parmesan Chicken Bowl is made with chicken, riced broccoli, cauliflower, green beans and red bell peppers in a sauce made with black pepper, cheddar, and Parmesan cheeses.
There are just 8 grams of net carbs, 3 grams of sugar and 19 grams of protein per bowl. It’s an excellent choice for those following either keto and low carb diets. Again, stricter keto dieters may want to read the full ingredient label as this meal does contain some starch.
Personally, I love everything about this meal. As with the Southwestern Style Chicken Bowl, the taste and texture of the chicken was perfect!
The combination of both broccoli and cauliflower in the cheese sauce was delicious with just the right amount of seasoning. Both the Parmesan and cheddar cheese flavors are evident with each bite. The green beans and red bell pepper were a nice addition.
I didn’t mention before, but there is a lot of meat in all of the Happi Foodi bowls that I’ve tried. Frozen meals can often leave you feeling a bit cheated when it comes to the ratio of meat to other ingredients, but this bowl looked to be heavier on the meat then the veggies!
I would definitely buy this bowl again and again!
Chicken Alfredo Bowl
The final bowl that tried was this Chicken Alfredo Bowl. It’s made with chicken, riced broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, onions, and mozzarella cheese with an Alfredo sauce.
Each bowl has 7 grams of net carbohydrates, 5 grams of sugar, and 28 grams of protein. Again, strict keto dieters will want to read the full ingredient list before purchasing.
The chicken was delicious in this bowl and it’s also loaded with vegetables just like the Cheddar Parm Chicken Bowl mentioned above. The flavor of the spinach really comes through more than the broccoli, cauliflower, or onions, so if you’re not a fan of spinach you may want to skip this one.
This is another bowl that I will happily purchase again.
Overall, I really enjoyed the Happi Foodi Keto Bowls. Obviously not every flavor is for every person, but that’s to be expected. All of the bowls are incredibly flavorful, well-seasoned, and well-thought out as far as the ingredients used.
I am still blown away by the quality of the meat and produce in each meal that I tried. There are no weird textures with the beef and chicken, mushy vegetables or watery sauces. I don’t know how Happi Foodi did it, but they did it well!
My personal favorite Happi Foodi Keto Bowls are the Sausage & Rice Cauliflower Hemp Seed Breakfast Bowl, the Cheddar Parm Chicken Bowl, and the Southwestern Style Chicken Bowl.
There are a few minor “flaws” with the bowls. Not everyone follows a keto diet the same way, so some people who follow a more strict keto diet may not want to buy these based on some of the ingredients, like potato starch and powdered cellulose.
I also found the cook times to be 1-2 minutes more than I needed in my higher watt microwave, so do take that into consideration when preparing these meals.
Also, the film over the bowl was hard to peel off and shredded into a bunch of pieces as I tried to remove it. This happened on every bowl so I am assuming the adhesive is a tad strong and the film is a tad flimsy. Not a big deal but worth mentioning.

Happi Foodi bowls are available nationwide at Walmart stores and select Meijer, Winn-Dixie and Safeway-Albertson’s stores.
