i generally find that most of the bagged skillet meals are pretty tasty. sometimes my wife will make one and throw in some extra chicken or shrimp since they are usually a bit light on the meat.

i think all frozen meals tend to be high in sodium (i think the same goes for restaurant made meals). it doesnt matter to me. i never add salt and dont really have salt in my breakfast or lunch.

If you like Chinese food, PF Chang’s frozen food line is also good. You have to heat on the stovetop, but it only takes about 10 minutes.

Blake's Chicken Pies are good, but pricy. Same with Wright's cod and chips. Years ago, Swanson made decent TV dinners.

I usually go with Stouffer's. Pretty good quality.

There is no reason to eat a frozen burrito, can make one very quickly and taste much better, oh yea, lower cost.

As for frozen meals, absolutely hate them. However, i have found that Trader Joe's has not too bad frozen food, more like "food that is frozen" if that makes sense, it not too bad when hungry and in a hurry for something.

When we want a quickie meal, Marie Callender's frozen chicken pot pies reheated in the oven, not the microwave.

Best tasting frozen meals? None, except those you make & freeze yourself. IMHO.

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.
Actually 300 calories is quite enough, for lots of folks. Add a couple of snacks during the day, and you are good.
Depends on your age, activity, etc, but 300 calories is my max for breakfast and lunch meals. Dinner might go over a little. but not by much. And no - it does NOT lead to a lowered metabolic rate. That has been proven to be untrue.

3 - 4 ounces of meat is considered one serving. Most people don't have a clue how much they should really be eating because they eat out so much. The portions you get at restaurants are WAY too much food for one person. It's the reason we are so fat!

Trader Joes has delicious frozen meals. I have tried many of them, and never had a one that I didn't love.
I like the Birds Eye Voila meals - have made dinner of those many times. Bertolli has a lot of good selections as well.
I eat a lot of Lean Cuisine meals too - I prefer to stay on the lighter side.
