Has anyone found any frozen meals that fit the nutritional count guidelines? I'm looking for anything that would be a quick, easy convenience meal for the occasional L&G option. I haven't looked in the freezer section, but what about the South Beach meals or the low carb Lean Cuisine?..

I have seen a few that follow the carb/fat/calorie guidelines, but the sodium is.

WAYYYY out there...... and they don't really have that much food in them... alot less than the required amount of protein.......

I did have one or two along the past few months, but they soooo aren't worth it.... less taste, less food, more sodium...... I did it only because I wasn't able to cook.....

I ended up making my own frozen dinners. With cooked spinach and a small serving of home grown winter squash as the sides. Grilled a bunch of chicken breast on the BBQ with hickory chips makes a great combo.

Great way to use up holiday turkey too Next 'meal pack' will probably be sliced of home made meat loaf with spinach. Yes, I love spinach A bit of nutmeg on the spinach is yummy..

That's an excellent idea! I think that would be perfect for me. With 3 kids ages 1,5 &6 it's SO difficult for me to put the time and energy into feeding myself that different meal each day. The make-ahead frozen meals may just do the trick! Thanks!..

Also try the pre-drained flavored tuna. I add shedded angel hair cabbage cabbage in the bag to make tuna salad, with a small amount of waldens farms ranch dressing..

Also, the frozen gorden's baked fish makes a good frozen L&G. Both fillets in the box make 7oz. Nuke a box of those, and a box of frozen vegtables. The "Steam Fresh" vegetables can be steamed in the microwave directly in the bag..

As a last resort, go to one of the buffet places (Ryan's, etc.), and get the buffet for takeout. $3.99 per pound. I get meat for everyone, and veggies I can eat. Never goes over $20 for 4 of us. Best deal in town..

I don't mind cooking, but sometimes you just don't feel like it...

I have ALOT of back problems & don't feel like standing in the kitchen alot. Over Christmas the back really got the best of me & is really acting up alot right now. I could use some really FAST - - or quick pick me ups - - IDEAS too - - Anything Quick & Fast keep them coming - - (or a pick up or frozen - - Thanks!!).

Hubby is eating w/ me at night & doing his own thing in the daytime...

You can do it! Just need to plan ahead..

I get home very late from work and have NO energy for cooking, so I also need things that cook up fast in the micro or toaster oven. So here's what I buy:.

* Frozen chopped veggies, all kinds.

* Frozen turkey burgers (Trader Joe's or most supermarkets).

* Frozen roasted chicken breasts (Trader Joe's).

* Frozen shrimp or fish fillets in the large bag (most markets).

* Whole roasted chicken from the supermarket deli (eat one or two meals, bag and freeze the rest).

* Gordons grilled fish fillets.

I usually nuke the meat or fish to thaw, then spray with olive oil Pam and pop into toaster oven to brown it a little. Or more often I quickly sautee with olive oil, dash of lemon juice and a little garlic that comes already chopped, in a jar..

On a really rough night, I've picked up a burger at the fast food joint, made sure they put no sauce, and threw away the bun! The Angus burger at BK is really good..

I buy the bagged salad greens and use Galeos dressing (even on cooked veggies, too), very simple and very good!..

There is a book out, "The Everything book of Monthly Cooking" or Monthly Meals.

Something like that. It has a chapter on making your own frozen dinners which I've adapted to the diet...

Not frozen meals but the South Beach bars seem to meet the guidelines for bars...
