Secret Two: Frozen Food Mega Meals
Forget your 1950s TV dinners. Frozen foods can be a great way to eat healthy and eat to your heart’s content – once you know Hungry Girl’s secrets.
Skip the drive-thru and try a veggie burger from your grocer’s freezer. They taste just like hamburgers, but are made with soy. Grill the burger, or heat it in a pan with a low-fat, non-stick spray, then serve on a whole wheat bun. The secret to leaving your belly satisfied is to add layer upon layer of your favorite veggies. Try thick slices of tomato, lots of lettuce, pickles and onions. Add light mayo and ketchup at the end for extra flavor.

Fill Up Your Frozen Dinners
Chose healthy frozen dinners in small serving sizes, then double your fullness by steaming a bag of frozen veggies and incorporating them into your frozen meal. You’ll only add about 60 calories, but you’ll be getting loads of nutrients, fiber, delicious taste, and double the serving size thanks to the veggies.
For nearly the same amount of calories, you’re eating double and getting added nutrients.
