If you're looking for healthy frozen entrées (for those nights when you NEED a quick, no-effort dinner), we highly recommend this gluten-free, meatless pick. The eggplant is simply baked (not breaded and fried), and it’s topped with roasted veggies, natural cheeses, and a ridiculously delicious sun-dried tomato sauce. (We tried it on the Hungry Girl podcast and couldn’t get enough!) Click to find, and stock up.
And that’s all we’ve got. ‘Til next time… Chew the right thing!
