Trying to stick to a healthy meal plan with a busy routine is often hard to do. When I’m on the go, I try to stick with sensible meals that are light and quick. Sometimes, It’s extremely difficult to find a balanced meal that has both of those elements. Our intense schedules limit us and this often leads to very bad nutritional choices. Bad choices result in higher blood pressure, higher cholesterol and yes, weight gain.
To keep my life a little bit more balanced and to keep my schedule somewhat in order, I started to replace a restaurant meal with a frozen meal. I save time, money, calories and just a bit of sanity. I started doing this because a recent study shows that by replacing a restaurant or cafeteria meal with a single serving frozen meal, you can lower your blood pressure and lower your cholesterol in just 30 short days. Surprised? I certainly was. Now I don’t know about you, but eating good food and improving your health is okay in my book. As much as I love cooking and preparing my own meals, there are those days when having the convenience of a frozen meal ready in five minutes is perfectly ok.
My frozen meals of choice are the Healthy Choice Top Chef Cafe Steamers. These recipes were developed by Bravo TV’s Top Chef Cheftestants and are less than 500 calories each. Packaged in a special tray, they are placed in the microwave to steam, thaw and cook evenly. I never get bored because their selection offers a wide variety; from Sesame Chicken to Meatballs and Sausage Marinara, there’s always something new and different to try.
Having these convenient options when life has you running is a great alternative for a busy and healthy lifestyle. Give them a try and add a little bit of ease to your hectic schedule.
