My wife has been touting the benefits of eating those frozen packaged meals you find in the supermarkets for some time. Mainly because they are quick meals with no preparation needed. For a busy woman they are ideal.
I have been trying to avoid them because they are small and I thought they would taste like cardboard and I would be hungry again in half an hour. Finally I agreed to try them, mainly because the weight watchers brand had only 350 to 450 calories per meal, depending on the variety.
I was actually amazed yeaterday when selecting a chicken curry how good it tasted. Yes, I really enjoyed the meal and it was enough for lunch. Containing 350 calories they fit in perfectly with my eating program, are tasty, low in calories, low in cholesterol and easy for my wife. A win situation for all.
I am not trying to plug the weight watchers brand over another. My point here is that they are a controlled meal and when you are counting calories they are ideal as you know exactly what you are putting into your stomach, which is the main point in counting calories.
What this means to me is that I have found a supermarket meal that tastes great, is affordable and calorie controlled. They will fit nicely with my weight loss program and provide variety from salads and vegetables.
Losing weight doesn't mean your meals have to be boring.
