Nutrition: Don’t Get Burned on Frozen Meals

Since everyone seems to have such busy lives, there are times it is much easier to grab a frozen meal when you need something quick.

The following hints may be helpful in your choices:

  • Choose meals with at least 8 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber.
  • If your frozen meal lacks in vegetables, mix in your favorite vegetable or add a salad or rich-vegetable soup.
  • To boost the nutrient intake, you might add a glass of milk and some fruit.
  • Check the fine print to make sure there are no more than 600 mg. of sodium and 4 grams of saturated fat.
