Life can get busy. Sometimes there’s not enough time to prepare a healthy, nutritious dinner. Maybe you don’t have time to pack yourself lunch for work. Instead of ordering takeout or trying to subdue your hunger with snacks, Lean Cuisine is a healthier alternative. Launched in 1981, the frozen food brand has been providing consumers with nutritious meal options for over forty years.
Finding nutritious frozen food options is especially important for those with health issues like diabetes and heart disease or consumers who are simply looking for healthier choices.
Lean Cuisine recently expanded their offerings and have become the first brand to offer meals that meet the American Diabetes Association (ADA) nutrition guidelines and are part of the association’s Better Choices for Life program.
Lean Cuisine offers healthier frozen food options
I’ve eaten plenty of Lean Cuisine frozen meals and some of my personal favorites are the Sesame Chicken and the French Bread Pizza. However, I’m excited to try the company’s four new Balance Bowls. The new line includes the following four varieties: Tex-Mex Rice and Black Beans, Lemon Garlic Shrimp Stir-Fry, Roasted Eggplant Parmesan Pasta and Creamy Pasta Primavera.
In a recent press release, Lean Cuisine’s Marketing Manager noted: “Our culinary team worked alongside nutritionists and members of the ADA to ensure that our meals are crafted with filling flavors and well-balanced ingredients that help consumers achieve their personal nutritional goals.”
Each of these new bowls are 400 calories or less, have no added sugars and include a full serving of vegetables. Look for the American Diabetes Association Better Choices for Life seal on the package. These entrees are affordable with a suggested retail of only $4.49 each and are available in stores now.
Lean Cuisine also has four entrees that meet the criteria of the American Heart Association’s heart-healthy meals. This line includes Herb Roasted Chicken, Garlic Sesame Noodles with Beef, Apple Cranberry Chicken and Butternut Squash Ravioli. These meals have 600 grams of sodium or less, 90 mg or less of cholesterol and 19.5 grams or less of total fat per serving. These entrees have a suggested retail of $3.99 each.
Lean Cuisine is fulfilling their mission of providing nutritious meals to help consumers eat well. They are also helping those with special dietary needs meet their nutrition goals.
