Frozen Dinners?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I try not to eat them too often as most are loaded with sodium and don't have enough veggies, but for lunch today I had the macaroni and cheese Lean Cuisine and it was really, really good!

I also like the Lean Cuisine pizzas and the Amy's brand veggie pot pies! Yum!

What's your favorite kind of frozen dinner, and how often do you eat them?

I like the salisbury steak dinners. I was eating them almost everyday there for a while but I guess i just have cravngs for them. I haven't had one in a while.

Mostly Banquet and Michelina's - we use them a lot because it's hard to stand and cook since my accident. And they are less expensive.

Fav Banquet is the Sweet and Sour chicken and rice (though now they cut the portion to include an egg roll - I'm not much on egg rolls).

Kashi came out with a new line of frozen dinners and they are quite yummy. I had back bean & mango for lunch the other day and couldn't believe how good it was. I occasionally bring Lean Cuisines, or the Kashi now, for lunch when I am at work and don't feel like going out.

I usually buy the Mexican dinners. Frozen dinners are gooey but Mexican food is supposed to be gooey, so it all works out.

They taste better baked, by the way.

I actually just got done eating a broccali & potatoes one by Michelina's.
It was spectacular..
I will be buying them is mass quantities sometime in the future.
Specially cuz my daughter ate half of it anyways.

I pick them up for quick lunches quite a bit. I usually get the Smart Ones kind or Lean Cuisine...mostly because they have the fewest calories.

My husband likes the Hungry Man ones but I usually prefer the Stouffers. I'm a huge fan of their Salisbury Steak. Mmmmmm.

We don't eat them that often though. Maybe a meal once a month. Of course I lived off of them when Brian was last sick. No time to cook when you're taking care of someone else.

Most of the Boston Market ones are pretty good. I like the Zatarain's bowls, too, especially the blackened chicken alfredo.

Since being self employed I really don't buy any of these anymore. I do like the Gyros kits though. (and of course frozen pizza). Sometimes if I have leftovers I will freeze my own TV dinners!!! I do like some of the Bertolli ones but not enough meat in many of them-the chicken ones aren't too bad.

I like Tony's frozen pepperoni pizza it only takes 15 minutes to bake. we have been getting those a lot lately..but they are cheap and yummy imo anyways.

My favorite is usually whatever is on sale that week.

Actually, I think my favorite is the Marie Callendar's Chicken Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes and corn on the cob.

Oh, like the Marie Callendar ones too! But I try and avoid the frozen dinners because of all the preservatives and such.

Frozen dinners are a truly once-in-a-blue-moon thing for us. Basically we don't, but very occasionally there's a time when the choice is between picking up something of the sort, on the run, to stick in the microwave, and then inhale -- or going without food for much longer than would be wise. In that case, I might get something Stouffers. They do reasonably well. But I don't buy them otherwise.

I buy the Lean Cuisine, Smart Ones and Healthy Choice meals for my dinners at work. Unfortunately, the variety of veg-appropriate ones is limited and the ones that do lack meat are usually pretty starchy. (Pasta instead of vegetables.)

I need to put the "veg" back in vegetarian and quit eating so much starch.

Maybe because I've never cooked Lasagne from scratch myself, I often have frozen vegetarian lasagne. I LOVE Boca Burger's meatless Lasagne, but that stuff is insanely expensive! I've recently started eating Trader Joe's spinach lasagne, and that stuff if great!

You know, neokakassan, I don't think veg. lasagne has any more starch than meat lasagne (of course, it still has plenty of starch).

when im trying to lose weight (like now), i LIVE on frozen dinners, mostly cos they taste decent and have a fixed calorie amount, so i dont need to do portion calculating. lean cuisine ones are almost always good. The best one ever is a tossup between Healthy Choice's turkey dinner (turkey, gravy, stuffing, veggies, ANDa cranberry dessert!), and Weight WAtchers Smart Ones chicken enchiladas (two chicken enchiladas SMOTHERED in cheese sauce, with spanish rice-and its actually spicy!). the lean cuisine sesame chicken is good too.

If you like Italian, try MichaelAngelos! The veggie lasagna, (4 or) 5 cheese lasagna, and Eggplant Parmesan are wonderful. I don't eat meat, so I don't know about the rest, but I was so impressed with the natural ingredients in the first one I tried (veggie lasagna) that I called the company to compliment them. They sent me a bunch of coupons for FREE entrees!
