There’s something so nostalgic about frozen meals. That is to say, who didn’t grow up eating the occasional Kid Cuisine supper complete with nuggets, some questionable veggies, and a brownie for dessert?
As a grown-up, people are likely very much aware most options in the freezer section are stacked with sodium. Be that as it may, incredibly, it’s still totally conceivable to remember childhood with healthy frozen suppers. Whenever they hit up the market, Brittany Modell, RD, has some healthy (and delectable!) frozen suppers that are more than worth adding to their cart.
Healthy frozen meals for nights when people don’t want to cook
1. TRADER JOE’S CAULIFLOWER GNOCCHI
“Now that the hype has died now, you can finally go into Trader Joe’s and find this item. I usually have at least one package of it in my freezer and love pairing it with tomato sauce from my pantry or spices. It’s healthy and versatile.”
2. TRADER JOE’S RICED CAULIFLOWER STIR FRY
“This a great item to keep in the freezer because it’s an easy meal you can whip up on a weeknight. It contains green peas, red peppers, grilled corn, tamari, spring onions, sesame oil, and ginger. It’s also low in carbs and fat. If you want a boost of protein, you can always add tofu or egg.”
3. APPLEGATE ORGANIC TURKEY BURGER
“I lived off of these turkey burgers in college. With its minimal ingredients—just organic turkey and organic rosemary extract—these burgers are low in saturated fat and carbs and high in protein at 20 grams per serving. They’re also easy to prepare. Just add them to the grill or skillet.”
4. HILARY’S FROZEN VEGETABLE BURGERS
“This is one of my favorite frozen vegetable burgers. I love the wholesome, plant-based ingredients, such as whole-grain millet, adzuki beans, sweet potato, and flaxseed. I always keep at least one box in my freezer at all times. I love eating a patty with Food for Life’s Ezekiel sprouted English muffin or alongside frozen vegetables as a quick meal when I’m out of fresh produce.”
5. AMY’S BLACK BEAN VEGETABLE ENCHILADA
“This option is perfect for those following a plant-based, gluten-free, vegan, or dairy-free diet. The ingredients are wholesome and include organic corn tortillas, organic vegetables, black beans, and corn. It’s a good source of fiber and protein and is low in saturated fat.”
6. TRADER JOE’S SRIRACHA SHRIMP BOWL
“This meal is low in saturated fat and high in protein. And the sodium content is about 640 milligrams, which isn’t high as far as frozen meals go. I like that it’s a complete and balanced meal.”
