Healthy choices

First of all, yes, I know I could be doing better than eating Healthy Choice meals for lunch and dinner, but it's a vast improvement over the fast food routine I resumed the past couple years. While I did feel a sense of shame in sidling up to the checkout line conveyor belt with a basket loaded with these boxes--what does that say?--I also knew I was making a better effort to be smart about what I'm eating.

If I'm going to settle for the quick option--and that's definitely been a major factor in what I consume--I might as well go for the healthier alternative. This week is a bruiser for me. There's no way I have the time or inclination to make something. So frozen meals it is.

The thing is, I'm finding that there are some good ones available. I'm not going to make any claims that these are the epitome of dining, but I've found some that have good flavor. (Some are also bland as bland.) I feel little guilty about the amount of (presumably) non-recyclable packaging that the meals come in. There was no symbol on the steamer pack for today's lunch. Still, it's the best I can do for the time being. Consider these a gateway to improved habits.

All of this is a long-winded way of saying that at some point I may have to do a rundown of my favorites and non-favorites and that I'm taking baby steps toward one of my New Year's resolutions.
