Lean Cuisine Meals

Have you ever arrived home from work too late to start dinner or been too tired to even think about scrapping a meal together? These days, spending money on dinner is rarely the option of choice, so the next best thing is to put on your pajamas, turn on the television, pop an easy meal into the microwave, and enjoy it without the guilt of putting a dent in your wallet or overshooting your calorie budget. Busy schedules require accommodation in other areas of life. What better than to have an entire meal that you can store in your freezer for months at a time! Explore the multiple possibilities of Lean Cuisine.

Something For Every Taste
Café Cuisine, Casual Cuisine, Comfort Cuisine, Dinnertime Selects, Simple Favorites, Spa Cuisine. Lean Cuisine meals have a choice for every mood and every craving. Hungry for a restaurant grade meal, but don’t want to leave the house? Try the Beef Chow Fun or Chicken and Almonds from the Café collection. Want a pizza, but don’t want all the calories? Try the BBQ Chicken or Pepperoni Pizza from the Casual Cuisine. Or maybe you just need some home-style comfort food? Check out the Chicken Parmesan. Spa Cuisine is the newest addition to the mouth-watering medley and it provides meals for those who are eating Lean Cuisine for more than the benefit of convenience. The Spa Cuisine series contains no artificial flavors or preservatives, and there is additional heart healthy ingredients including whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Beyond this there are seemingly endless combinations of tastes.

Relish The Benefits
The best thing about a Lean Cuisine meal is that it contains a variety of healthy nutrients in one pre-packaged serving. As the name implies, all of the products are lean and are required by the FDA to stay in line with certain criteria. This one bowl dinner (or lunch) reduces the temptation of overeating because once it’s gone, that’s it. For a whole meal, assuming that the serving will fill you up, it is low in calories, fat, and cholesterol. The amount of calories range from 200 to 400, depending on the choice of meal. They all have less than 10 grams of fat, and less than 95 milligrams of cholesterol. Regardless, this is still a very reasonable number of calories, fat, and cholesterol to consume with one meal.

Here’s a tip to top it off if you’re feeling that it won’t provide lasting satisfaction: have a juicy peach for a sweet after-dinner touch at only 70 calories, or a large glass of skim milk that has only 80 calories per cup.

Check Out The Package
Whether you’re eating Lean Cuisine meals for convenience or to help control portion sizes, these meals are suitable for all. If you’re dieting and on an exchange system, the Lean Cuisine company provides Diet Exchanges on all of the boxes for these meals. They also provide their own calculation of Weight Watcher’s points, which are undoubtedly equivalent to the actual calculations.

Choose Lean Cuisine
Lean Cuisine can be bought from the frozen section at any supermarket in the area. Often times, the newspaper has coupon deals, such as buy 3 get one free. These are excellent meals for the nutritional benefits, convenience, and ability to stock for months at a time. Adapt to your busy schedule by keeping 4 or 5 in the freezer; this way, you’ll have a wide variety to choose from when push comes to shove. They only take about 4 ½ minutes to cook, which is nothing compared to cooking a dinner that can take up to 20 minutes, especially when you’re short on time. You can’t go wrong with Lean Cuisine.
