Three Easy Ways to Balance Your Plate
I absolutely love to cook! I really do—but the reality is I don’t have time to spend hours in the kitchen to prepare my family wholesome meals every night of the week. On those busy nights I rely on some help.
Frozen entrees are delicious, convenient and budget-friendly options that can easily be paired with fresh sides – such as fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy, and even nuts – for a nourishing, balanced and affordable meal.
To help balance your plate, I’m sharing three easy frozen meal pairings.
One of my favorite frozen meals that pairs perfectly with a side salad is Stouffer’s Lasagna. It’s made with herb seasoned tomato sauce and real mozzarella cheese which gives it that delicious homemade taste.
One of my favorite hacks is adding tuna to Stouffer's Mac & Cheese. My family loves this pasta because it’s so creamy and made with real cheddar cheese. Once the mac and cheese has been prepared per the package instructions, stir in a can of drained tuna, and enjoy! And in case you haven’t heard, Stouffer’s now has a Gluten Free Mac & Cheese that’s just as delicious as the original!
So, the next time you pull one of those frozen entrees for dinner, remember these three easy tips to balance your plate!
