Finding Frozen Food That Fits the Health Narrative

By Brandi Goodman

Did you know that there's a National Frozen Food Month? It arrives in March every year. It's important to observe this occasion because of the large quantities of frozen foods found on store shelves. Most of them are not at all beneficial to your health. You need to find frozen food that fits the health narrative and can actually help your well-being rather than hinder it.

Choose Plain Fruit and Vegetables

A bag of frozen broccoli smothered in cheese isn't the wisest choice. Sure, it's better than a bag of chips. But it still contains more sodium than you need. The better alternative is to choose plain vegetables and fruit options that you can spruce up later at home. Sprinkling a bit of mozzarella cheese over your broccoli is a healthier solution than buying a ready-made bag. Fresh is of course the best solution, but frozen fruits and veggies keep longer and can still offer many of the same vitamins and minerals.

Search for Lean and Low-Calorie Meals

TV dinners are a popular option that can be popped in the microwave for a fast meal. However, most of them offer exorbitant calorie counts and sodium levels that are beyond comprehension. They are in no way good for your health. You can find some lean and low-calorie meals though. Brands such as Lean Cuisine, Weight Watchers Smart Ones, and Healthy Choice tend to be more on the health side of things. Sodium and calorie levels are much lower for these meal choices.

Select Lean Cuts of Frozen Meat

Meat is often packaged and frozen in large quantities. It allows you to buy in bulk and spread out your meals in an efficient manner. You want to avoid the breaded versions and more fatty cuts of meat, though. It's best to choose lean cuts of frozen meat without all the added fat and calories. Turkey and chicken are two of the better options you can find at the grocery store. They offer lots of protein and little fat.

Always look for the healthy frozen food options in store aisles. Those Hot Pockets, tubs of ice cream, and pizzas may look great, but they're not doing any favors for your waistline. Find frozen food that fits the health narrative so you can be sure you're eating nutritional items that benefit your brain and body.
