All the time and could not possible succeed without them. I am a terrible cook and I hate to cook. Just polished off a Lean Cuisine Stuffed Cabbage dinner and loved every bite of it.

I like this answer..."too many chemicals". The picture on the package lies. It tricks you into thinking what's inside the package will match the picture. And it never does.

If I eat something, I want to be able to pronounce all the ingredients and to know that there are no additives. Why do they try to enhance flavor? Have they cooked all of it out? How fresh is the food when it's prepared? Why do some of the portions taste funny...not very palatable. I stopped wasting my money on this decades ago.

As I've gotten older, I've become more and more suspicious of what these big companies are doing when they try to tease us into buying their product.

I also agree with MaureenV2 in regards to being in a time crunch...crockpot preparation always works. Set it up in the morning and dinner will be ready when you want to eat.

Rarely, tho if my better half will be gone, I may opt for a favorite frozen meal as a vacation from cooking. I always add a green salad &/or crudite', probably fruit as well. The ones I like do the starches well, the meat acceptably, but are very short on veggies and fruits. The diet ones I've tried don't do veggies well either, and are too short on all else as well.

I used to eat them often, but I've gotten very tired of them. It always irked me that they didn't throw more vegetables in. Instead I had to prepare some more veggies myself so that I would feel satisfied when I was done.

I haven't in years. Although I used to enjoy frozen taquitos (I am gluten free now and just avoid most processed stuff like that because I can never tell)...when I did eat them I would have a few and a side of brown rice and beans, and a side salad.

I do for work lunches on occasion and they have to have less than 600 mg of sodium and I have a salad or cup of soup with it.

Yes on occassion, even tried Nutrisystem for 1 month but found TOO much sodium so switched to plant based diet, but yes I still get hooked into quick frzen meals when I am hungry and they sound so good.

Actually during the times I have to work evenings at the store I bring my own meals and my "go to" meals are the Michelina frozen ones. In the grocery store I look for my best canidates watching for calories and sodium. I always bring along 2 fruits too to insure I get some better choices in.

Never the type you get in a supermarket. I make my own small dinners and freeze them to be reheated when I'm super busy. I don't like not knowing how fresh the store-bought dinners are and some of them can taste pretty funky.

Yes, when I'm in the States I always have some frozen meals in the freezer. I had one for lunch today that was a Mexican meal. I buy from a variety of companies. I go for those meals that sound good, not just by a certain company.

There are many companies that sell complete meals that are frozen. You just microwave and I suppose some are still heated in a regular oven.
