When you always seem to be busy, like most shoppers these days, there isn’t always time to spend cooking a meal from scratch. After a long day in the office or a hectic weekend at home, there are some go-to frozen products that are always a great choice. The benefits of frozen foods are abundant. They’re quick, easy, and freezing locks in those nutrients and vitamins that are found in fresh foods.
One of the morning favorites are Delights by Jimmy Dean. Hillshire makes quite a few varieties of these sandwiches, even vegetarian options. They are fast, delicious and keep you satisfied for hours. Perfect for when I’m running out the door to work and have a day full of meetings! These sandwiches are all under 300 calories and take just a few minutes in the microwave, a wise choice for those watching portion control or calories.
Another healthy option is Smart Ones frozen meals by Heinz. There are many choices in this line of products for any palate. The Three Cheese Ziti Marinara is always a big hit in my house. With zesty tomato sauce and gooey cheese, you’d never guess it’s only 8 Weight Watcher’s points! There are many fantastic points covered in fresh vs frozen, and frozen options are great for busy families. It becomes a speedy, healthy and filling meal in just minutes.
When it’s time for lunch, sometimes you just want a sweet treat. At only 100 calories, Healthy Choice Greek Frozen Yogurt is a scrumptious summer option. Made with real fruit, ConAgra conveniently makes these single-serve cups a staple for at home or the office. And with 3 servings per package, it makes sharing with co-workers a no-brainer. The strawberry frozen yogurt tastes fresh, like a perfectly ripe piece of fruit. Freezing is like a natural pause button that keeps this just-picked flavor at its peak of freshness. Yum!
Dinner time, and this pasta dish tastes just like a recipe I would make at home -because it is made from real, fresh veggies. Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers by ConAgra keep the pasta perfectly al dente and the veggies crisp with its steaming basket. I really enjoy the Portabella Spinach Parmesan. This frozen delight takes just 5 minutes to prepare, is vegetarian and only 230 calories. Plated, you would never know it was actually a frozen meal.
No cooking or packing the night before. No messes to clean up. Just delicious, frozen choices that give variety of cuisine and bring satisfaction to a hungry tummy. Even on the healthy side of the spectrum, there are plenty of fantastic dishes to keep in the freezer at home or work. Frozen. How Fresh Stays Fresh.
