Are there any frozen microwavable meals out there that are recommended?

  • Hello everyone, I often need to grab something quick to eat, being a college student. That said, I have often bought Lean Cuisine or some different version of frozen food. Are there any good brands out there that would fit the nutrition requirements of Daily Burn?

    Go to Traders Joe's (if you have one in your neighborhood) But look carefully at what you are buying. They do have some items that fit in with the DB plan (The coconut shrimp for example) However on the aforementioned item. They recommend 6 as a serving, The DB plan would suggest 3, add green vegetable and a brown rice (Rice can be prepared in advance and stored for three to five days MAX) Vegetables can be microwaved as well. Turkey Meatballs (Also 1/2 suggested serving)

    Instead of relying on the microwave however I would suggest looking at easier meals to prepare. Like The turkey club on the DB Nutrition site. Try Baby spring lettuce with Tuna fish, celery and cucumbers for a quick salad. If you have a toaster/oven, you can broil Salmon or snapper in 20 minutes

    Hi there. Besides frozen vegetables I don't know of any specific brands that are suited under the DB nutrition plan. Ideally you don't want to depend on a microwave to prepare your meals but it's hard as a college student. If I come across any, I will be sure to let you know.
