When I don't have time to cook my food for lunch the night before I have a stash of Lean Cuisine and Healthy Choice meals in the freezer at work. To bulk them up I add a serving of veggies. It helps me stay fuller throughout the day and I'm getting an extra serving of veggies!

Buy discount bananas in bulk, peel and freeze! Save money and eat healthy too!
I use these bananas in their frozen state to make yummy smoothies with the consistency of a shake for breakfast, a snack or even dessert. These frozen bananas also come in handy for making your favorite healthy banana baked goods recipes.
I know that home cooked food is better than pre-packaged frozen meals, but as a full time working mother of a toddler, sometimes I have to take a shortcut. When I bring a frozen meal to work for lunch, I add vegetable servings, bulk, and nutrition by serving the meal over a big bowl of lettuce, cabbage, or spinach. It helps me feel more full and I don't need dressing for the greens because the dinner's sauce adds moisture and flavor. It's a double bonus!
