The Healthiest Frozen Dinner Options
Live Lean Nation, on today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m going to show you 7 calorie saving frozen meal options that are healthier than eating out at a restaurant.
No matter how many times I say to prep your meals in bulk and take leftovers to work for lunch, sometimes life gets in the way or we don’t have time, or to be honest, we’re just lazy. In these cases, I want to arm you with a “calorie saving” back up plan that is healthier than hitting up the closest fast food restaurant. That’s right, I’m talking about “healthier” frozen meal options.
I spent a few hours looking through the nutrition info of frozen meal brands such as:
Amy’s, Artisan Bistro, Australis, Banquet, Boston Market, Healthy Choice, Kashi, Evol, Stouffers Bistro, Stouffers Lean Cuisine, VH Steamers, and Weight Watchers Smart Ones.
Surprisingly enough, the 7 healthiest frozen meal options came from just 2 brands. These 7 healthier frozen meals all passed the following Live Lean Frozen Meal Nutrition Gauntlet.
Live Lean Frozen Meal Nutrition Guantlet:
-> More than 20g protein
-> More than 5g fiber

-> 500mg or less of sodium
