It’s time for another Eat Smart Move More Weigh Less team review! When you’re in a pinch for time, a frozen meal may be a quick fix, but try to choose a healthy option with lean meat, low sodium, and packed with veggies. Hopefully we can point you to the ones that are also delicious!

  • Upside: The veggies are quite tasty, especially the tomatoeslean-cuisine-chicken-poblano-meal and the grilled corn. The sauce has good flavor, but not very “cheddary”. Plenty of food for only 300 calories!

  • Calories: 360
  • Price: $4.95

  • Upside: Whole chilies have really good flavor! Very cheesy just like the packagecedar-lane-chile-relleno-meal-2-500x281 describes.
  • Downside: Sauce needs salt and spices, I added some Tapatio, and the chilies are a bit tough to cut. This meal is on the pricey side compared to others.
