It’s late, you’re hungry and you don’t feel like slaving over a hot stove to cook a nice hot meal. What do you usually do? Most people open up their freezer and see what microwavable frozen dinner looks appealing to them.  Unfortunately a lot of frozen dinners are not good for you and are packed with high amounts of sodium. 

But all hope is not lost, there are many healthy frozen food choices available. One well-known brand that makes frozen meals is Amy’s.  They offer breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and desserts. You can have a healthier version of all your favorite foods any time of the day. If you like the popular breakfast food Poptarts then try Amy’s Toaster Pops, which are vegan and low in sodium. Maybe Mexican food is more your style, if so try gluten-free cheese enchiladas made with organic corn and tomatoes. The possibilities are endless.

Amy’s frozen foods are available at most local grocery stores that have a health food section.

Throughout the years we have learned the truth about how unhealthy fast food restaurants really are. They use vegetables that are covered with pesticides and meats that are injected with hormones and antibiotics.  Now we know that having food that is fast, cheap, and convenient comes at a price but that is starting to change. Some fast food restaurants have taken the initiative to use quality and organic products.

Chipotle is one of those restaurants making a change in the fast food industry for the better.  For example, 40% of their beans are organically grown and they are working to increase that number. Also, they are working on only using meats that are not given antibiotics and are naturally raised.  Chipotle supports local family farms and uses local suppliers.

So not only are you on the right track to eating healthy by eating at places like Chipotle but you are also supporting your community.
