I like Lean Cuisine for when I used to take night call. The pizza's are really quite good. I also think Amy's is good - specifically the burritos. They can be heated up in 2:30 min and all u need to do is wrap it in a napkin and nuke it. DEFINATELY good BUT definately need to put some salsa on it. I tried Amy's other stuff and wasnt impressed. I think traders joes is a good idea. Lean pockets are good too- def better than the "non -lean" ones. Kashi makes a cilantro and lime frozen entree that is pretty good.
I have had lean cuisine and I do not think it is anything to write home about, but I guess it is personal preference. I think that the best frozen meals are the ones people have already mentioned, like Amy's or any of those organic/ethnic ones. I am not an organic freak but their meals always seem to be more substantial. Lean cuisine didn't fill me up...but I guess they're not supposed to if you're buying them to lose weight. WARNING: DO NOT GET THE LEAN CUISINES WITH DESSERT! THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY TASTELESS!! NOT WORTH THE FEW CALORIES THAT THEY COST!!!
