If you can’t get to the store for fresh veggies, frozen veggies are a good alternative. Frozen is also a good way to get certain veggies when they’re out of season. Also worth noting: If you get a fresh vegetable, like broccoli, and it sits in your fridge for a week before you eat it, it will loose nutrients and frozen actually will be better at that point.
Frozen meals and pizza should only be eaten in emergencies. “Watch the sodium—you’re shooting for 500 mg or less and even that is high,” warns Lippert. Check for a fat content that’s 15 grams or less and always see how many servings there are in a box—and eat just one recommended serving.
