If you don’t think nutritious foods and frozen foods go together, hop over to a different aisle in your grocery store (hint: it’s not the ice cream section).
Frozen whole foods still retain their nutritional value when frozen, studies find.
Yes, the frozen food aisles are full of chicken tenders, “wyngz,” waffles, and fries, but they are also full of healthy options, from frozen whole foods to ready-to-cook healthier options for people watching their calorie intake and those on special diets.
Some options to try (varies by region and store):
- Eat This, Not That’s List of 46 Best Frozen Foods
- Cooking Light’s comprehensive list of healthy frozen prepared options by meal, type, and ethnicity
- WebMD’s guide to choosing and a ranking of the best frozen dinners
