You don’t always have to order fast food when you run out of time to cook a meal from scratch. Frozen meals are still an excellent way to get the nutrients your body needs. And because a lot of microwave meals have a reputation for tasting like plastic and freezer burn, Truckers News has picked out the ones that actually taste homemade, so you can keep them in your cab cooler or miniature fridge.
1. Healthy Choice Roasted Red Pepper Marinara
This frozen meal is made with fire-roasted red peppers, roasted garlic, and tangy marinara sauce complement whole-grain cavatelli pasta. It’s 100% natural and vegetarian friendly.
2. Kashi Lemongrass Coconut Chicken
This entrée comes with chicken with broccoli florets, carrots, and sugar snap peas served over Kashi Seven Whole Grains and Sesame with red quinoa pilaf. It’s then topped with a lemongrass coconut sauce and coconut flakes. Store it in your cab cooler and pop it in the microwave when you’re ready to eat.
3. Amy’s Kitchen Light and Lean Bean & Cheese Enchilada
This low-fat and certified kosher meal is made with organic black beans, tofu, brown rice, vegetables and cheese in an organic corn tortilla with a blend of tomatillo and ranchero sauces. Organic brown rice with carrots and sweet corn come on the side.
