I get this news letter has some very interesting healthy articles...
I wanted to share the article on the new LEAN CUISINE DINNER calle dHONESTLY GOOD ...
I have not tried them, I don't eat much pre packaged food....(I use to when DH was on business trips)

any way the newsletter says that the meals feature a real chicken breast, fish fillet or beef strips....
over brown rice or whole-grain pasta....paired with veggies like broccoli, orange and yellow carrots, edamame, green beans snap peas or zucchini....
they are low in saturated fats (about 2 grams) calories 300-400 ...the protein 15-27 grams
fiber 4-7 grams , there is no inulin, maltodextrin or other poorly absorted carbs....
sodium 290-590...not great but better than most packaged foods...
and the best part is the sauces are packaged so you can add as much or a little or not add at all..

some of the good things in there are garlic puree, orange peel, lemon grass , sun dried tomatoes, cilantro...depends what one you buy....
bottom line if you are needing some dinners that are pre made you might tries these....

let me know if you try them...

they also report to stay clear of T.G.I FRDAYS'...Tennessee Whiskey serving has 1270 calories,28 grams of saturated fat....820 grams of sodium.....thats the same counts as 4 McDonalds hot fudge sunday's......who knew...gee even if you shared would still be way to many calories....

anyway a little info from one of my healthy news letters....

have a healthy Wednesday....

the website for this news letter is... go look up this site and scroll down to berries over bugs....see what you think..... emoticon

    I get that newsletter. That organization has made a big difference in making sure food is labeled, soda machines are out of schools, educating the public on health issues... Thanks for posting.

    emoticon for sharing. Sometimes it would be convenient to have some boxed dinners in the freezer. I used to get them for my lunch sometimes. I usually try to have some frozen things on hand for convenient meals, but rarely a heat and go whole meal in one. I might check these out to have on hand for an "emergency" go to.

    I think I will pass on the 'berries over bugs', gag gag!! But I will like for the Lean Cuisine you mentioned. I often like to have something on hand just in case I don't feel like fixing any thing else/ Thanks, Kitt.

    Berries over bugs gave me the willies! I am so glad I stopped buying things like that. Give me some fresh fruit in plain Greek yogurt anyday!

    What type of Lean Cuisine? I couldn't find them in the grocery store, just the regular ones. Asked if they could order and I didn't know what they were for sure.

    Thanks for the news but I can't do these types because of the sodium. But an occasional one instead of a poor high fat and calorie choice is always a option. Thank you. Jeanne emoticon

    I was wondering about those dinners when I saw them advertised. I think that I will buy a few to have on hand when hubby truly wants something that I won't eat anymore. Thank you for the info. emoticon
