I am a huge fan of the Today Show. One of my favorite things is when they do some serious investigative reporting. Well. Just watched a video where the investigation hit a little close to home. This video on MSN describes a study that found some frozen diet meals (Smart Ones, Lean Cuisines, Healthy Choices) contain more fat and calories than are listed on the packaging. What? Hmmm.
Unfortunately, I am a girl that relies pretty heavily on the frozen meal for lunch. I'll go a bit of time and be great about making fresh lunches...but then life gets busy and I slide back into the old habit. I have a million excuses...they're cheap. I work 30 minutes from home. There is no guessing on the points value.
This video really made me think. It's not just about the inaccurate nutritional information...it's a quality of food issue. I've set out to come up with filling, real, cheap lunch options....things that will keep me away from the box. And yes, there's a Lean Cuisine French Bread Pizza in the freezer right now with my name on it; this will be a work in progress!
What do you eat for lunch?
