The Most Unhealthy Frozen Meals You Should Avoid


Frozen meals were something my husband and I use to eat alot of when we were younger. Even though I usually made dinner for us, I use to stock up on frozen meals for our work lunches. At the places I worked, we never got a lunch break, it was just eat on the go, in between patients. It wasn’t practical to sit down to a healthy lunch, time wise for me. I would just throw my lunch in the microwave, zap it, and after the next patient’s dental cleaning appointment, try to scarf it down in as few bites as possible.  I didn’t realize at the time how terrible those meals were for me.

Here’s a few of the most unhealthy frozen meals in the grocery aisle. For the full list, visit The Daily Beast here.

  • Lean Cuisine’s Sesame Chicken 1 of 5

    This use to be one of my guilty pleasures for work lunch several years ago. I knew it was bad for me, but it's so good.
  • California Pizza Kitchen Pizza—Crispy Thin Crust BBQ Chicken 2 of 5

    I am in love with every California Pizza Kitchen product in the frozen food isle, too bad they are not good for you.
  • Marie Callender’s Sweet & Sour Chicken With Rice and Vegetables 3 of 5

    Before I started making my own recipe for sweet and sour chicken, this was my go to sweet and sour chicken. It's my favorite Marie Callender's frozen meal.
  • Marie Callender’s Pot Pies—Chicken 4 of 5

    And this is my second favorite meal from Marie Callender. It's so close to homemade, when your tired from a long hard day of work, you can't really tell the difference.
  • Hungry-Man Grilled Bourbon Steak Strips 5 of 5
    Hungry-Man Grilled Bourbon Steak Strips
    I have tried for my entire life to avoid anything that says Hungry Man on the package. Although I have slipped up a few times. It's pretty much implied anyone under 6'4" and 250lbs should not be eating this. Obviously, as delicious as this is, it's not good for you.
