Or are they just more processes food? There is also Simply Asia packaged food in the oriental section. They all seem real convenient but I wonder how healthy they are.

Read the ingredients and nutrition data on the label....

Lean Cuisine is tolerable, I sometimes buy them for easy lunches. Healthful? Better than McDonalds. I work in construction/home improvement and often bring frozen dinners for lunch; if there's a microwave handy it's really convenient.

I ditto the Kashi frozen meals...much better, lots of fiber, no corn syrup, really quite tasty. WalMart has them for a good price. Also Annie's, usually in the "natural foods" frozen section. They're sort of spendy though; I stock up when they're on sale. The Ethnic Gourmet meals are also pretty good.

Healthwise, most all frozen prepared foods are very high in sodium, even "lean or healthy" brands. They are fine for most folks once in a while, but shouldn't make up a large portion of your diet. I think most major brands taste pretty good.
