It has been well documented that meal replacements (aka Lean Cuisines, Smart Ones, Muscle Milk) can be a safe and effective tool in weight loss. Much to the surprise of my clients, I typically bring this up as an option to those who despise cooking or meal prep, but still need to stay within their target calorie level. As someone who values natural nutrition full of fiber and veggies (often lacking in these meal replacements), I would continue to feel an emptiness in my little nerd heart when I noticed my clients finding success in this tactic. I was beginning to fear that these unglamorous meal replacements would plague my career forever until, alas, Garden Lites decided to rock my world and send me a shipment of all natural, gluten free frozen dishes and souffles…fancy! With options like pizza, southwestern and raisin carrot, this meal leaves little to crave after lunch. Any volume eaters out there? With each dish running you under the 200 calorie mark, go ahead and pair it with your favorite fruit and a sensible snack for the ultimate well-rounded, low calorie meal.
