Frozen Dinners: Watch which one you choose
Normally, frozen dinners do contain an astronomical amount of sodium and fats. But there are a few that can be good for diabetics, you just have to watch what is actually in the dinner. There are options for frozen dinners that are gluten-free, organic, and some that do not contain genetically-modified ingredients. But, there are also options that are high in saturated fats and/or sodium. So, make sure to avoid those.
Here are some tips to help pick the right frozen dinner
When choosing the right frozen dinner, make sure that it's between 300-500 calories, with no more than 30 percent of those calories from fat. They should also have no more than 2 grams of saturated fat and 0 grams of trans fat. Also, consider a meal that has 15 grams of protein and more than 2 grams of fiber. Because most of these usually do not contain a lot of vegetables, make your own extra serving by adding a salad or a piece of fruit to round it out.
