Lyfe Kitchen has caused a healthy stir in the California restaurant scene. I was a little hesitant when I first heard "frozen" but soon found myself digging into the Mango Chicken and Nine-Grain Pilaf Lyfe Kitchen Frozen Entrees ($6-$8 per meal). Instead of nuking your food in plastic, these gourmand meals come in their own parchment pouch, ready to steam in the microwave or oven.
All the dishes have fewer than 450 calories total, and it doesn't hurt that they're lower in sodium than most frozen food options on the market. Depending on where you live, you can find Lyfe Kitchen frozen meals in your grocery store, or you can always order online at Amazon Fresh.
