Stock your freezer with these items, and you'll always have a healthy breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack at the ready.
A Burger You'll Feel Great About
When your fridge is practically empty, and lunch or dinner is looking like it's going to be PB&J, a box of frozen veggie burgers can be a lifesaver. Try them with whole grain bagel thins, which have fewer calories and sodium than most buns, suggests Gradney. For add-ons, she likes guacamole as a healthy alternative to mayo, and spinach instead of iceberg lettuce. Veggie patties can even make terrific pizza toppers. Gradney's advice is to seek out patties made with a bean base (versus soy), as they tend to have more fiber. And keep an eye on the amount of sodium—300 mg, or less, per serving is ideal.
