Can we eat a little better with each meal? Today’s Transitions decided to take a healthy-meals-made-easy challenge to see if we could eat nutritionally well in an easy way. We selected three different meal options: a take-home meal kit, a heat-and-eat meal prep service, carryout from a local restaurant.
Carryout, Home Run Burgers & Fries, $8
- Consider skipping the cheese and top with avocado instead. Avocados are delicious and rich in heart-healthy fats, potassium, and fiber.
- Skip the fries (and the calories) and add a small garden or fruit salad.
- Swap out the bun for lettuce to save 150-200 calories.
- Pile on the veggies to add more nutrients and flavor.
