It’s 5 o’clock. You’re just leaving the office. You’ve had a full work day—and indeed, you’ve been working overtime all week. You haven’t had time to go grocery shopping, and you’ve got a spouse and two kids at home to feed. What do you do? Looks like another stop at the fast food joint around the corner from your office—or maybe, if you’re feeling fancy, a family outing for a sit-down meal somewhere…

But wait! Not so fast—there are other alternatives to fast food or restaurant meals when you don’t have the time to whip up something from scratch in your own kitchen. The words “frozen dinner” may not bring to mind nutritious, tasty, and surprisingly cost effective culinary experiences; but these days, they probably should. Here’s why.

These babies aren’t your grandma’s TV dinners. They don’t come in aluminum trays, they aren’t peppered with sad little piles of soggy green beans, and they aren’t chock full of chemicals and fillers. Lean Cuisine and Stouffers, for example, both have over 90 products available with no preservatives whatsoever. Meals are made by chefs from ingredients picked at the peak of their ripeness; then they’re flash frozen, ensuring that they’ll be as fresh as they were the day they were made when you sit down to enjoy them yourself.

In fact, no matter what kind of fast food or restaurant craving you and your family are having, there’s a healthier equivalent waiting for you in the freezer aisle. Check out these alternatives—and eat this, not that!
