March 17th, 2013 No Comments Tags: , , , ,

Some frozen food choices are better than others. Read labels and look for foods with less sodium, fat and sugar. Shop for basic, healthy frozen foods that can help you make simple, delicious meals such as:

  • Super stir-fry. Steam frozen Asian veggies or sautĂ© in a little olive oil. Serve over brown rice and top with tofu and slivered almonds for a quick meatless meal.
  • Gourmet pasta. A combination of frozen grilled vegetables and frozen cheese tortellini, boiled and then tossed in a zesty tomato sauce, makes a simple yet sophisticated meal.
  • Divine dessert. Slightly thawed frozen raspberries on top of Greek-style vanilla yogurt makes for a delectable dessert or snack.
  • Yummy breakfast. Add frozen blueberries to whole grain muffins, oatmeal or pancakes for a burst of flavour.
