You always want the best in life, particularly with what you ingest every single day of your existence. You prefer having fresh ingredients for your daily treats but your busy schedule won't allow you to cook up smoking gourmet foods off the stove.
But having the drive to be the best doesn't mean you have to compromise the nutritive values of your food. There are high quality low fat frozen foods scattered all over the market waiting for you. Take a look at how you can pick the right stuff.
1. Here's a little bit of appetizer. The method of freezing food dates back to the earliest times of farmers, fisher folks, and hunters. They used unheated buildings to house their harvest during the winter. This technique turns water into ice thus preventing bacterial growth that contributes to the decomposition of food. Clarence Birdseye is an American inventor responsible for developing the quick-freeze system. His design has faced countless innovations through the years including the addition of liquid nitrogen.
2. Watch out. In general frozen foods were created to provide a healthy alternative for people who are always on the move but you have to realize that not all of them were manufactured under the same conditions and processes. You have to look out for those that contain preservatives. Take extra time in marking sodium and fat contents. The American Heart Association recommends that you limit your sodium intake to around 2,400 milligrams per day, which means that you should choose frozen preparations that have 200 milligrams of sodium for every hundred calories. There are products that you will find containing too much grease when you compare fat in grams with total calorie. Daily fat intake should be less than thirty percent of daily calorie count.
3. Make sure you get it complete. There are low fat dinners that contain 250 to 300 calories so if you consider this meal as a third of what you have to get for a single day it's less than 1,000 calories. This is not even sufficient to provide the energy needs of an individual under a weight reduction program. The ideal number to hit in terms of calories is 300. This would give you enough strength to overcome temptations of heating up a round of high-calorie snack on the latter portion of your day.
4. Veggies should not be taken for granted. A significant kink on a frozen product's armor is the small space allotted for vegetables and fruits. Even though you're pretty much sure that your reliable frozen food brand can provide the needed greenery you can still pump up the vitamins and minerals in your meal by reserving a spot for salad or steamed veggie on your plate.
5. Take your time and read. When buying frozen food products you have to meticulously scrutinize the label area. There are government mandated nutritional labels that can give you gem-like information regarding the product you're about to ingest. This includes portion size, number of calories, amount of sodium, and number of fat in grams. You have to give extra attention to portion size as there are products that are packed to dish out two servings. This is particularly important when you desire to trim those pounds and inches.
The frozen food industry has widened its network. It can match the demand of any diet. From low fat to vegetarian you're assured that your daily nutritive needs are taken cared of.
