A lot of people stick up their noses to frozen foods, but they can be a healthy part of your life if your choose them right! Here are some of my favorites from Trader Joe's. A good NOTE: did you know Trader Joe's prices are fixed (they don't increase or decrease based on where you live) nationwide?? They're definitely one of the most affordable grocery options in NYC! All of these options are about $3!
- Turkey Bolognese: This is just straight ground turkey & tomato sauce (360 calories for the whole thing), and it is delicious! Pair it with 2 cups of zoodles (zucchini noodles) for a complete meal.
- Eggplant Parmesan: As this meal is 460 calories (for 2 servings, which I totally eat!), I would recommend it just by itself. I usually cook it in the microwave for an extra 2-4 minutes.
- Chana Masala: This dish is a delicious chickpea in curry sauce entree (360 calories total). I would pair it with 2 hard boiled eggs for a complete, filling meal at work.
- Palak Paneer: A mix of creamy spinach and cheese, this is one of my faves (320 calories total)! I would pair it with a serving of whole grain crackers or chips for a complete meal.
