Natural Foods:  January- Quick and Healthy Fast Food
Well for Life

 

For most of us, our New Year’s resolutions involve healthier eating and perhaps dropping a few pounds.  However, it’s often tough to find time to plan and cook nutritious, calorie controlled meals.  That’s where natural healthy frozen foods choices can help.  They have built-in calorie and portion control, just be sure to look at the nutrition facts to see how many servings the package contains.  Check out some great healthy quick foods you can make in minutes.

First, let’s start with the most important meal of the day, breakfast.  Earnest Eats Hot & Fit Cereals have superfood grains - whole oats, amaranth and quinoa - plus fruits nuts and seeds like almonds, mango, cranberries, cocoa and cashews for a powerhouse of nutrition, energy and a satisfied full feeling that will stick with you through out the day.  Ready in minutes.

Sweet Earth Burritoshave a blend of plant-based protein, veggies and beneficial herbs and spices.  Each are fiber rich, low fat, protein packed, vegan friendly food.  You will love the flavor!
Because many of us are used to larger portion sizes, we can increase the amount of food by adding some fresh or frozen veggies as side dishes or add them to the prepared entrees to increase the volume and in many cases, enhance the taste.  Lisa’s Organicsare a great choice. Not only are these high quality organic veggies, they are washed and frozen the same day they are harvested for maximum freshness and nutritional value.  And, for that “home made” taste, special chef-inspired sauce “chips” are added to the bag so the veggies and sauce stay separate until you cook them.  Try the Lisa’s Organics California Vegetables in Balsalmic Glaze—yummy!

If you love great flavor and variety, but need to be gluten and nut free, try Against the Grain Pesto Pizza. This is a chewy, tasty pizza; they do not use any grains at all to make their breads and crusts.; instead they use tapioca flour and a combination of fresh milk, eggs and cheese for a bread like feel.  It’s fresh tasting; you’d never know it was gluten free. And, the pesto is nut free (they use sunflower seeds instead—really tasty!). 

For vegans, or folks who just need to go dairy free, you’ve got to try Bold Organics Gluten Free Vegan Cheese Pizza

Vita Pizza is a truly delicious, nutrient-rich, low-calorie, single-serving frozen pizza you can sink your teeth into!  Enjoy!
