We recently introduced Better For You, a new line of all-natural frozen entrées made with real ingredients, real flavor and real nutrition. Each Better For You entrée must meet a stringent set of nutritional standards, which were developed with the help of our organic and natural manager and registered dietitian.
- No artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners
- No preservatives
- No hydrogenated oils
- No high fructose corn syrup
- Made with wholesome grains
- No more than 600 milligrams of sodium
- No more than 25 grams of fat
- No more than 600 calories
There are 13 selections to choose from, including sherried chicken & vegetable rice, tangy BBQ beef & yams and tropical coconut shrimp & rice. Something for everyone in your family!
Here are some of the most popular entrées so far:
- Red wine braised beef and rice
- Lemon chicken artichoke
- Vegetable mac & cheese
- Santa Fe rice and beans
- Spiced shrimp and rice
Each 10 oz. entrée is made with wholesome grains, lean protein, veggies and great flavor from herbs, spices, vinegars and citrus. These entrees contain no artificial colors or preservatives and no high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oils. They’re so easy to pop in the microwave to heat and eat! I like to pick up several at a time so I can enjoy a variety of tastes. My favorites are the tomato sauced salmon cake with vegetable rice and the savory chicken with polenta. Flavorful, satisfying and lower in calories and salt - yum!
