I work full-time. It's not always easy to work a full day, come home, and then plan a dinnertime meal for my family. I try (and most days I succeed, especially with a weekly meal plan in place), but at least once a week, something will come up in our busy lives, and a family dinner will not be had that night. For example: Tonight? Chicken marsala was on the menu. But this morning, Hubby casually mentioned, "Oh yeah, right after work, I need to go stock all the baseball equipment bags for the league. So I won't be home." When instances like this occur, I don't necessarily want to eat what my boyz are going to request instead, which is 9 times out of 10, PASTA (with butter and parmesan).
That's when this momma reaches for a Healthy Choice frozen meal. Hopefully, in this day and age, the mention of frozen meals doesn't give you flashbacks to the days of yore TV DINNERS with the aluminum trays and the congealed mystery meat! No way. Not so with ConAgra Foods brands like Healthy Choice (and Marie Callender's)!
These frozen meals are made with real meat and vegetables and are required to go from farm to freezer within 24 hours! Top chefs work creatively to make the most of unique flavors and tastes. And, for me, they are a great alternative when I don't have time to cook. I like the fact that there's built-in portion control and I can read the label to know exactly what I'm putting into my body.
Healthy Choice, it's what's for dinner.
The video below was created by Healthy Choice and Marie Callender's. It follows two women through daily life, imagining how the future of grocery store shopping will change based on new technology. Consumers are becoming savvier than ever before, and we want to know where our food comes from!
March is National Frozen Food Month, and these two particular brands are helping us shoppers to predict the future of shopping for frozen food.
Watch and see:
ConAgra Foods frozen meals give families access to real ingredients like crunchy, freshly cut vegetables, homemade pasta and ripe fruit year-round. Just like most people blanch veggies before freezing them – ConAgra Foods does too – to help preserve color, texture and keep them fresh!
Give it a try sometime! Marie Callender’s hearty pot pies are filled with tender meat, freshly cut vegetables and Marie’s authentic golden, flaky crust. And Healthy Choice recipes use chef-inspired ingredients like, apples instead of sugar for tart sweetness and a splash of red wine for a punch of flavor instead of added salt.
