As you can see for a convenience food product it is pretty good healthwise. Of course, nothing is as healthy as preparing it yourself, but this is about convenience. All frozen meals have high sodium levels, so you should limit their use to only when you need the convenience.
The portion size is about average. If you are a big eater, you may find it looks like a small portion of food, but it is actually quite filling. It also tastes good.
If you're in a hurry and need a healthy meal, this is a good choice. Sometimes I am so busy that I forget to eat and this is not good. By the time my next meal comes along, I over eat. When I grab a fast meal like this one, I don't overeat and I am not starving.
Whether you are trying to lose weight, maintain weight, or just want to eat healthy, these meals are a good choice....at least for me they are.
Do you ever run out of time to cook a healthy meal for yourself? Do you have a "go-to" solution to eating in a hurry but staying healthy at the same time? Have you ever tried a SmartMade frozen meal? What other ideas do you have to share with others on fast food alternatives?
