Bulking Up Frozen Entrees


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

How to actually get full after eating a frozen entrée (diet frozen entrée or otherwise)? Add extra vegetables! Sprinkle frozen chopped broccoli onto a frozen entrée before microwaving. Cook just 30 seconds longer than normal. Fill a bowl with chopped spinach, green onions, tomatoes, etc. and then scoop your hot microwaved food onto it. This works especially well with pastas. The sauce is now the salad dressing.

    I do this all the time to bulk up those frozen entrees! I love to find a pasta entree under 300 calories and then pour it over a cup or so of chopped broccoli or other frozen vegetable mix.
