The 5 Healthiest Frozen Dinners You Can Buy (Pizza, Stir Fry and More!)
On nights when I’m tired, rushing around or working late, I like to have a hot, healthy, delicious dinner served to me at the touch of a button. No, I don’t have a personal chef or butler—just a microwave! While eating fresh food is usually best for your body, some nights it’s just not possible to cook from scratch, and on those evenings, frozen entrées are my ammunition against fat-laden takeout or uninspiring leftovers.
The frozen meal options at the supermarket just keep getting more nutritious and delicious, as our taste testers found while scoping them out for SELF’s 2010 Healthy Food Awards. For a boxed supper that’s both slim and satisfying, choose a meal that contains about 220-350 calories and pair it with a salad for a meal totalling about 500 calories. Make the five winners below part of your weeknight repertoire, and you could lose 5 pounds this month, too!
