Take frozen food out of the deep freeze!
Let's admit it. Everyone needs to pull a prepared meal out of the freezer every once in a while -- even on a Meatless Monday. Thankfully, there are some options that are meatless, tasty and healthier than others.
Out of the deep freeze
When you have to reach for the freezer handle to find your meal, it's nice to know that you have healthier -- and meatless -- frozen options available! Since March is National Frozen Food Month, we thought we'd celebrate by giving you a few frozen food options you can pull from the freezer and serve with fresh vegetables or a nice green salad for quick, healthier options.
Frozen food that's good food
Not all frozen foods are bad for you, but some are definitely better than others. You don't have to stock your freezer with chicken wings, pepperoni pizza and beef burritos in order to have a great meal or snack ready in a short time. Think frozen vegetables, veggie patties, potatoes and meatless pizzas.
Some really great frozen options include foods from Veggie Patch. The company offers delicious, convenient and healthy options that are meatless and handy when there's no time for a complete homemade meal. Another bonus: Kids love them!
Do you think of cereal or snack bars when you think of Kashi? Did you know they also make frozen pizza, single-serve frozen entrees and whole grain frozen waffles?
Take the "con" out of convenience
There are many good meatless, frozen foods available. Veggie Patch and Kashi are two companies that blend taste, healthier ingredients and a variety of meatless options, especially nice when you're pinched for time -- even on a Meatless Monday!
With the time you'll save, toss together a great salad to serve with the rest of your meal!
