Frozen Dinners: 12 Healthy Options (cont.)

Singles, busy families, older people, and office workers alike enjoy the simplicity and convenience of the frozen meal. At my office, the freezer is jammed with all kinds frozen meals, which get zapped in the microwave for quick, portable, portion-controlled, and relatively inexpensive lunch.

Here's one more tip: Try to add a side salad and a serving of fruit to round out your meal, especially if you're having a lower-calorie frozen dinner. Not only will it boost the vitamin, mineral and fiber content, but the extra fruit and vegetables will help fill you up. After all, what good is the portion-controlled serving if you still feel hungry after you eat it?
