Weeknight Dinner Idea: Frozen Meals 

There are many frozen foods and meals available to help take the stress and work out of meal planning. The trick is using a variety of key ingredients from the freezer then pair with fresh fruits and veggies. And the good news…it’s easier than you think.


Here’s a clever mealtime solution… Start with a frozen prepared meal as the center of your plate and then add fresh sides like fruit, vegetables, whole grains and dairy. You can find so many delicious frozen meals now, including plant-based frozen meals, that are convenient and affordable. Plus, the vegetables in these frozen meals can be just as nutritious as fresh because the freezer locks in the nutrients until you’re ready to eat. And, frozen prepared foods help to cut down on food waste. 


Looking for examples of how to balance a frozen meal with simple sides? Here are 4 ideas as well as delicious homemade Creamy Homemade Ranch with Veggies paired with DiGiorno Original Rising Crust Pepperoni Pizza and Veggie Mac and Cheese Muffins using Stouffer’s Macaroni and Cheese paired with some simple sides.
