Let's face it: frozen meals are handy. And on hectic days, having a meal in minutes can be a lifesaver. Even if you're making an effort to cook more, stocking your freezer with a few emergency meals can save you from ordering delivery or hitting the drive-thru, which can wreak havoc on your blood sugar. All of these meals keep sodium, calories, saturated fat and carbohydrates in check, which are important nutrients for people who have diabetes. These options are healthy choices for anyone who needs an easy meal to grab straight from the freezer in a pinch.

You walk into the grocery store, and head to the back (it's always way in the back) for some milk, only to be confronted with what seems like an increasing problem: Too many choices.
When cutting calories to lose weight, being strategic about the foods you eat can make a significant difference in how you feel each day and your overall weight-loss success. By choosing foods that fill you up without putting you over your calorie limit, you will feel full and satisfied and meet your weight loss goals. In this healthy 1-day meal plan, meals and snacks are tailored to be high in protein and fiber (we pack in 79 grams of protein and 38 grams of fiber), which take longer to digest, meaning you'll feel fuller for longer.
