Frozen Dinners From Home

Betty K.
The frozen dinners at the supermarket are sure convenient but are often full of extra things we do not need or want. If you are on a low sodium diet it can be very hard to find any prepared meals.

You can make your own frozen dinner packages from almost any combination of cooked meats, frozen vegetables and some healthy ethnic (Italian, Asian, etc.) salad dressing or sauce. Making your own food typically costs less while keeping the nutritional value high. I use freezer and microwave safe bags with a layer of cooked rice, noodles or mashed potatoes, a layer of frozen vegetables and small chunks (easier to reheat) of whatever cooked meat is handy. Sometimes I freeze the dinner without the sauce and add it right before cooking so the same meal can have a different flavor for each person.

These prepared meals last for weeks (maybe even months) in the freezer or a couple of days in the refrigerator. About five minutes in the microwave is all you need for a healthy and hot meal.
