Frozen meals are tricky, because you really need to know what to look for. Weight loss is different than nutrition. A big plus, however, is the ease transition into portion control. Frozen meals make it easy to follow the new portion guidelines of the LAP-BAND diet. When it comes to frozen meal brands, these are the ones we recommend:
Simply Steamers by Healthy Choice has great options that fit the LAP-BAND diet guidelines. Remember to pay close attention to the meals that contain ingredients you cannot have. The Simply Steamers meals are perfect in portions and have great taste!
The EatingWell meals are great! The brand has created a great site to learn more about each meal and they also offer a huge variety of recipes, meal plans, and other resources for those with a little extra time to chop and cook.
Lean Cuisine has been in the frozen meal game for a long time. They’ve stepped up their game and have created great meals for both our health and taste buds! Since they offer a wide variety of meals for a wide variety of diets, remember to pay attention to the foods you can and cannot have.
