Healthier Pre-Made Dinners?


This is a great way to bulk up a cheap frozen dinner meal! I usually don't like to purchase frozen dinners due to the high sodium content, but at $0.49, I couldn't pass it up. We do not eat them very often, but I still wanted to insure I was getting some good stuff in too!
I added a stalk and head of broccoli, 2 yellow squash, and a zucchini sauteed in some sesame oil to the frozen meal, and voila! Instant, cheap, and healthier dinner that lasted through dinner and made a tasty lunch the next day.

Do you have any ideas for making pre-made meals healthier?


  1. 49 cents??

    I usually add to those pre made dinner thingies too. There never seems to be enough in the package.

  2. Yeah! I got the Stouffer's Easy Express Skillet meals for a whopping $0.49! Such a deal that I couldn't bare to pass them up! I definitely agree with you though, there is never enough in the packages, and I'm always looking for new and healthier ways to add a little bulk.

  3. That is a great way to make your meal go way farther. Never thought to add to one of those. Thanks for the idea.

    Thanks for the follow the other day...had to come over and follow you :) Happy Weekend!
