Let’s get real. I don’t eat freshly-made, organic, homemade masterpieces everyday. I just don’t have the time. Frozen food is something I eat regularly. It’s fast, easy and there are some pretty healthy options out there. So, when MyMagazine Sharing Network set me four frozen food coupons with the goal to spice them up a bit, I was up for the challenge. Here’s a few tips on how to spice up your frozen food and feel good about it.
Transform your frozen food meal
Okay, so SmartMade frozen entrees are pretty healthy and really delicious. I bought a Mexican-style Pulled Pork Bowl. It only had 360 calories. Plus 7 grams of fiber and 26 grams of protein, I felt pretty good about it. To spice it up, I spread it onto a tortilla and topped it off with cheese, salsa and sour cream. So, instead of a pork bowl, it became an even more delicious pork burrito!
Sauce it up!
I was skeptical of these Farm Rich Mozzarella Bites, but man were they yummy. My son asked me to buy them every time I go to the store. To make them a little more exciting, I had four different dipping sauces to choose from: ranch, barbeque sauce, fry sauce and marinara sauce. With the final touch of some edamame, it made a snack into a meal.
Add some freshness
Fresh vegetables seem to make any meal better. That’s why Marie Callender’s Delights are no exception. I ate the Panko Herb-crusted Chicken. It only has 420 calories and I topped it off with some fresh avocado. It was delicious. So, just chop up any veggies you might have and you will love it!
Add some meat and make it for two
These Devour frozen meals are full of flavor and calories. With more than 700 calories per meal, I decided to add some fresh salami and peas and then split it into two. That way I was still able to indulge without the guilt. Plus, I had some left over for the next day.
