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:

7 Calorie Saving Frozen Meals

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
-> 40g or less of carbs
-> 500mg or less of sodium

The 2 Brands That Passed The Live Lean Frozen Meal Nutrition Guantlet:

  1. Thank you for this Brad…I usually have Healthy Choice for lunch because I
    thought it was *HEALTHY*. I’ll just stick to the real food…it’s easier
    than trying to figure out the stats…LOL

  2. NICE VIDEO BRAD. JUST CURIOUS WHY ARE YOU CONCERNED WITH SODIUM SO MUCH? IF
    YOU ARE CONSISTENT WITH HIGHER SODIUM I DONT SEE WHY ITS A PROBLEM.

  3. love it. “we’re freaking lazy” so true haha I will definitely be sharing
    this with some of my subbies. I always get asked what they can grab and I
    always tell them NOTHING haha but at least there are some options that will
    be ok.. Thanks for testing these out! xoxo
