One Final Healthy Frozen Entrée Tip: Pump Up the Produce!

If you ever wondered why you're hungry an hour or two after eating a frozen entrée, it might be because they only have around 250 calories. They are called "entrées" for a reason.

To turn them into a satisfying meal, add some sides like a green or fruit salad, steamed veggies, or a whole-grain roll. Look at your particularly frozen entrée and see what's missing. Fruit? Vegetables? Whole grains?
