It’s National Frozen Foods Day!

Yes, that’s a thing. Let’s roll with it though! As you are very well aware, I’m L.O.V.I.N.G my frozen Nutrisystem foods! Nothing wrong with their shelf stable foods (honey, I’m all about the white mac & cheese!) but they have stepped up their food game with their frozen foods!

If you’re not on the plan but you still want to try their frozen foods, you can order a la carte and try some out. In fact, Nutrisystem is always running deals on their social media sites so get to stalkin’. Follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and you’ll see exclusive discounts. Don’t forget about Ebates, too!

One of my favorite frozen meals so far has been the cinnamon roll! I swear to the DIET GODS that this is the best breakfast. Pair it with some coffee and a Power Fuel (I recommend a boiled egg or maybe string cheese) and you’ll be in heaven! I thought for sure it would be gummy or dry but it was flakey and just the right amount of gooey cinnamon in the center. I’m drooling!

Chicken parmesan is one of my favorite dishes. Have you ever noticed that when you get frozen chicken parm that the chicken is always spongey? Seriously, I’m gagging thinking about it. Nutrisystem’s Chicken Parmesan is nothing like that! Is it my aunt’s homemade dish? Not quite! But it is a fantastic HEALTHY option! I’m a picky Petunia when it comes to red sauce and theirs is the perfect balance of sweet and tangy. The chicken has a bite to it and isn’t spongey at all. Pair it with a big spring salad and lite dressing  and you have the perfect comfort meal. (Don’t be afraid to use those extra’s, people!).

Let’s not forget about dessert! I don’t know where to start! Since this is just my first shipment there are still so many that I haven’t tried yet. Currently I am loving the ice cream sandwich. I ordered a few of these based solely off the reviews on Nutrisystem’s website. It’s a 5 star snack and for good reason. It doesn’t taste like diet food. That’s how I feel about most of their frozen foods to be honest with you.

I’m a mom of 2 young boys and there are some days that I feel like a short order cook. The convenience of just being able to whip something out of the freezer and have dinner prepared in minutes makes my life so much easier!!! I tried to do the meal planning pinterest-y things and I’m just not that organized or thoughtful with food. This is just so simple and effortless.

If you’re looking for a flex frozen meal, I have some favorite go-to’s as well. My all-time favorite would have to be the Lean Cuisine Mushroom and Spring Pea Risotto. leancuisineThe textures, nutty flavor and the fact that it is so filling makes this a winner – winner – risotto dinner in my book.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Smart Made (made by Smart Ones) has a lot of great choices too. My favorite of theirs is the Chicken with Spinach Fettuccine. Loaded with flavor, real (not spongy) chicken and a creamy sauce makes it feel like such a naughty meal but it’s such a great healthy choice.

Ok, so National Frozen Foods day is a bit of a strange “holiday” but it was fun sharing my favorite meals with you. Do you have any frozen favorites? Or do you like to make your own meals to freeze?
