At Diets In Review we’re big fans of eating clean and lean because we know fresh food is the absolute best for you and your family. We also know “life happens,” and sometimes you just want to rip open a box from the freezer, microwave it and call it dinner.
Recently, Prevention Magazine announced their top 100 Cleanest Packaged Food Awards. That’s 100 reasons to stop shunning your pantry and serve up a guilt-free meal.
Kathie Lee and Hoda briefly put down their wine to chat with Prevention Magazine’s Siobhan O’Connor, who stopped by with a few award-winning items.
Want more? Here are 6 additional packaged foods that got a thumbs-up from Prevention:
Morning Star Farms Sausage Patties – Made with organic soy. Contains way less fat than pork. So tasty you might forget you’re eating a meat-ish patty
Rhythm Superfoods Kale Chips – Not just any ole kale chip. Mango Habanero flavored! Made with organic kale and sprinkled with organic spices, this is a zesty high fiber, high protein snack.
Chef Anthony Russo’s Margherita Pizza – Low in sodium and completely gluten-free, this frozen pizza had Prevention staffers raving over the bold flavors. We love the fact that it contains just a few ingredients and you can pronounce every one of them.
Kind Bar Dark Chocolate Chili Almond – No surprise here. We’ve been raving about these low sugar, high fiber/protein bars of yummy goodness for months.
Red’s All Natural Steak & Cheese Burrito – Wrap your fist around this meaty burro without feeling remorse afterward. Red’s made the list because their burrito is surprisingly low in sodium, plus it contains zero antibiotics and hormones.
Canyon Bakehouse Deli Rye Style Bread – Good news for our gluten-free friends trying to navigate their way through the bakery aisle. Made with brown rice and tapioca flours, this bread is supposed to taste just like the real thing.
