most lean cuisines are good

my university only has about 6 different ones, but i enjoy the beef with soy for only 200 calories..although it got old after 2-3 times.

i find that theres SO many that you could probably eat a new one every day for a few months before repeating, unless you're very picky
People advise Amy's forzen meals for a better taste and nutrition. keep in mind they are PACKED with sodium and most contain trans fat. If you wanna eat some, just have them once a day.

I find for somehting so "low in fat" and "high in sodium" they taste kinda bland but not salty enough! Everyone has different tastes. I think it woudl be easier to nuke some rice a chicken and sprinkle with herbs, but that's just me :D
I luve the Lean Cusine Panini's, Lemongrass chicken and there is a also a peanut chicken noodle dish I love.
I like to get the Weight Watchers Sante Fe Chicken and wrap it in the La Tortilla Factory Low Fat/ low carb whole wheat tortillas.  I do wish packaged foods wasn't so high in salt.  With my working and work out schedule there is nothing I would like more than to come home and just pop in a microwave dinner but my sodium intake is too high to begin with! 

I like WW lasagne and ravioli.  I don't care much for most lean cusine stuff and most of the south beach taste like its the sand from the beach

I like most health choice
i personally like lean cuisine more...they both make very similar stuff...and if i eat the exact same thing...one from lean cuisine and one from smartones...i usually like the lean cuisine ones better...and i agree with kittykatz...i love their paninis too...and their chicken carbonara (my co-worker said the LC one tastes A LOT better than the WW one)...also...LC's mashed potatoes have more texture to it while WW's mashed potatoes are more like watered down...
I have to agree, I think Lean Cuisines taste better than Smart Ones. And also that South Beach are not so great (especially the breakfast burritos, I had to cover it in hot sauce just to cram it down!)      &nb sp;               &nb sp;               &nb sp;               &nb sp;               &nb sp;               &nb sp; 
My favorite smart ones are the ziti marinara, lasagna, cheese pizza and the ravioli. Lean cuisine- sesame chicken, baked chicken, vegetable egg roll and the pizzas
I absolutely live on LC roasted chicken with lemon pepper fettuccini. It's sooooo good. My roommate loves the ziti with marinara sauce. I also really like Lean Pockets chicken parm if I want something quick and travel-able.
The LC are better, my favorite is the chicken in basil cream sauce, but smart ones has a chicken enchilada suiza that is so yummy!
Love Lean cuisine but find them higher in cals than smart ones. Love the new Brick oven style BBQ Chix Pizza. I eat one of those everyday for lunch. Smart ones have really good frozen deserts and their thai chix and rice noodles. Those are my favorite I e3at a little of LC, SO, Healthy choice, and South Beach Diests. Just whatever sounds and looks good at the time.
They are all too salty for my taste.  I get a Healthy Choice entree once in a while, if they are on sale, but then I have to limit sodium for the rest of the day.  Sodium is the first thing I look at on the label.
the new spa varieties of lean cuisine are excellent. I also keep a couple comfort classics like mac and cheese and mashed potatos and turkey for those cravings. I must say, I was so happy when stouffors (who makes lean cuisine) cut out preservatives as well.  I like amys as well but amys has a lot more calories.  She has great veggi lasagna though and now its in low sodium as well.

chicken carbonara,spagetti w/meat sauce,lazagna w/meatsauce chicken fettecini,chicken parmesan for LC's

healthy choice delux french bread pizza and the chicken fettecini are good as well.
Chicken Carbonara... Yep I love it
Smart Ones has better vegetarian options - I like their Santa Fe Rice and Beans the best.
I love Lean Cuisine! I had the Garlic Chicken Pizza which was really good. Also the Southwest Chicken Panini was awesome!! It was actually toasty, which was a surprise.

I think the Cabonara (LC) is WAY too salty! Yuck!

My faves so far are:

       &nb sp;               &nb sp;          Mac & Beef (LC)

       &nb sp;               &nb sp;          Chicken Scaloppini & Lasagna (LC)

       &nb sp;               &nb sp;          Fiesta Chicken & Santa fe beans & rice (LC)

       &nb sp;               &nb sp;          Turkey w. Stuffing &  Sweet potatoes (LC)

 and the Veggie Lasagna (Weight Watchers) isn't bad.

       &nb sp;               &nb sp;          
I'm a lover of the Healthy Choice brand. <3

The nutritional facts are all reasonable (even sodium) and their complete meals are AWESOME. They even come with a desert I'd usually consider off limits. They're usually in the 300 cal. range and most of them come with a serving of vegetables.

The Lean Cuisine mushroom spinach pizza is my favorite pizza in the world!!  It tastes so bad for you....It's great!
I really like LC Chicken Fettucini, and S1's Macaroni and Cheese... I usually have a frozen meal for lunch in the afternoons at work, but as mentioned before, if you're counting sodium, just beware.  Lots of sodium in these little packages.

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
