A 4-ounce meat, 2 spoons of gravy, half cup of starch, and a quarter cup of vegetable is definitely not going to make anyone full. This can lead to a lowered metabolic rate or snacking that's not mindful.

Most people eat two such dinners at the time (except those who are on a strict diet)
I used to eat a certain brand of frozen foods in the 90s that were so tasty, but I would still be a little hungry after, so I would eat the meals with bread and butter to fill up. They came in cardboard boxes (no plastic that I can remember) and they had the best tasting beef stroganoff and spaghetti (wish I could remember the name of the brand!!) I was always tempted to eat two of them, but just stuck to the bread and butter to dip in the little meal.

Lots of frozen meals are loaded with saturated fat. I love Stouffer's but the fat is extreme. Amy's Kitchen makes good stuff. I like their Indian meals. They have moderate saturated fat. The tofu scramble is one I just tried - surprisingly good and NO saturated fat. Mrs T's pierogies are great. Golden Krust Jamaican patties are really good - but too much fat to eat often.

Marie Callenders' pot pies. Take a long time to cook, but are very good.

Default I ate only frozen dinners for a month

Thinking about the frozen chicken kiev my great grandma had in the 80s, (can't remember the brand) that were really good, with the butter and herbs and crispy skin.


Any recommendations on some other frozen meals/brands?



Felt weak as a kitten and had the shakes like I was hung-over. Fats, sugars, salt and mystery ingredients. The four food groups. Does it ever match the picture on the carton?

Michaelangelo's is my favorite especially their shrimp scampi and chicken piccata but all of the ones I have tried have been good. P.F. Chang's has some good ones also but most of them are a little too spicy for me.

I liked the broccoli and cheese one.
I like the apple one but my son loves the cordon bleu one the best.

That’s what I was going to say. The crust is awesome.
I was on a Amy’s Organic kick for awhile and like her cheese and bean enchiladas.

Not frozen, but the take and bake pizza from Walmart is better than any frozen pizza I’ve tried.

Trader Joe’s frozen dinners are very good, and there’s a wide, multi-ethnic variety to choose from.
