The Worst: Evol Lean & Fit: Teriyaki Chicken
Although Evol’s teriyaki chicken meal has zero grams of saturated fat per serving, the rest of the meal is high in total carbohydrates, at 45 grams per serving. It is also high in sugars, with 12 grams per serving. Reporter Jenna Wolfe emphasized that if you are indulging in sugar from a frozen meal, it should come from a natural source instead of a sweetened teriyaki sauce.
