Clear Some Freezer Space For These 20 Healthy Target Buys
There's no shame in your frozen game. Packing your freezer with minimally processed frozen fruits, veggies, meat, seafood, and ready-made meals (even pizza!) is a smart way to eat healthy. After all, they take little to no time to cook and rarely require you to dirty a pan. And while stores like Trader Joe's are tops when it comes to inventive and delicious frozen fare, so is Target. Of course, you already can spend hours browsing the different departments, but save some time to swing on over to its grocery department and pick up these good-for-you finds.
