One of my “goals” for this year is to maintain a healthy lifestyle and lose a few pounds. As someone who has lost 30 pounds before, I know that this takes a lot of work. One key point to maintaining a healthy lifestyle is to stay active. Another is eating right and using portion control. This means cutting down calories and eliminating really fatty foods.

I like to cook healthy foods for my family but since they aren’t here all the time and I don’t like cooking for “1″. To avoid going through the fast lane when it’s just me, I will keep some meals in the freezer. Typically the foods I enjoy are pastas and the occasional pizza.

When I went shopping for a few meals from Lean Cuisine to stock in my freezer, I found that they had a lot larger variety to choose from than I thought they had. Along with their classic meals, they now carry Market Creations which steam in the bags to make everything crisp! They also carry sandwiches and a snack line which includes spring rolls.
They had over 10 pizza’s to choose from. These are great to stock up on because if the kids are craving a pizza night, I can eat pizza too without feeling guilty!

I tried the Asiago Tortellini and it was delicious! You can print a coupon for $1/2 Market Creations at!

I also tried one of their wood fired pizza’s

Roasted Garlic Chicken Pizza

If you go to, you can track your calories and convert Weight Watchers points. While I am not on Weight Watchers, I know it has been successful for some!

While stocking up on some meals, I needed to stock up on dessert. If you haven’t had a Skinny Cow dessert, you are really missing out! They have snack fudge bars with only 50 calories, ice cream bars and ice cream.

My favorite is the mint ice cream sandwiches. Only 140 calories and 2 grams of fat!

Skinny Cow also came out with Truffle Bars! I tried the French Vanilla and the White Mint which only have 100 calories per bar! If I am going to treat myself to 100 calories this is how I’m gonna do it!

Of course, I never leave the house without a coupon, I printed this one!

I was compensated by collective Bias for my time, all opinions are my own.
