Ones you make and freeze yourself. I don't do processed in any way shape or form. Too much salt, not enough flavor and full of additives that i don't need. I take time out of an evening during the week or a few hours out of the weekend and prepare several meals. I will freeze it and then warm it up in the oven or on the stove. I refuse to use microwaves.
I'm really hooked on the Smart Ones. I know that no frozen meal is ideal to eat but sometimes it really is not convenient to make something and these all have really good flavors.

I usually bring frozen Smart Ones meals for lunch to work. They aren't low sodium like some people have already mention so if you're watching sodium they may not be your best choice. I also tend to pick ones that don't have meat in them simply because they hold up better in the freezer, and on their way to my work fridge in the morning without throwing the flavor off as the start thawing a little.
I often don't have time to fix dinner or don't feel like it. We used to eat out alot trying to avoid it more. I mostly get lean cuisine but I notice I only eat part of them because I don't like some of it, then I can't figure out the correct nutrition for the items I ate. Anyone have suggestions to figure that out?

I like the Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers. They were a godsend when I first started on my weight loss journey as they helped me wean myself off the large portions I was used to eating, and I didn't feel like I was "missing out" on anything since the flavors are good and the veggies didn't get soggy like they do in a lot of frozen meals. I used to eat them daily, but now I just keep a few handy for those days when I wake up late and don't have time to make my lunch and don't have leftovers to take. The best price for them is at Target, where they're $2.54 each, and as of last week they have an in-store special where if you buy 4 you get the 5th free which brings the cost closer to $2.
I have a very long and busy day today. I usually, when I know I wont be home to make dinner, have a crock pot meal ready.. except today, my crockpot has to got o work for a lunch time event. I have to eat at 5. I have a gym appointment from 5:30, treadmill 6:30 personal trainer time 7;30 yoga and stretching.. so I wont be home until 8:45. What can I take to work to eat at 5.. I will have access to a microwave, and a toaster oven.

I like the Amy's lasagne and also the burrito's although they are to high in calories for me to have for lunch and not filling enough for dinner! Rather make my own and get the calories, fats, etc down!!! I can make a flat bread "Flat OUT pizza very quickly!
I like amy's bowls which are both vegan and tasty. They are on the pricey side so I only eat them when I am absolutely too tired/busy to cook a healthy meal.

I used to but I have a little more time now that I retired. I am still the sole caregiver for my husband. On days he doesn't have appointments, I have a little more energy to be in the kitchen or going to the grocery store. Salt can be too high in those dinners. I do like the convenience though.. One thing I get is Celeste frozen individual pizzas. If I get a whole pizza for home, I have a hard time restraining myself. Chris
I do not like the frozen dinners they have an ingredient list a mile long, I would rather stick to what I know is healthy food. There is just my husband and me so I usually cook a recipe for at least 4 and then make a lunch out of leftovers. I also love soup so I will make a large pot on the weekend and have soup at least once a day for the fiber and veggies. I am retired now but when I worked I would cook at least three meals on the weekends and then all I would have to do is heat and eat. This would work for lunches and you would be getting great tasting meals that you know are nutritious. Good Luck!

I typically pack my lunch but some days it is just not possible. I have eatten lean cuisine and kashi frozen dinners in the past and like them. What are some other frozen meals that are healthy and taste good?
