Say freeze! Frozen meals are about as fast as going through most drive-through lines. You don’t want to eat in the car anyway!
Busy at college (and a “kitchen corner” consisting of just a microwave, tiny fridge, and coffee pot) daughters Janice and Marla get a “fast food” fixes with healthy frozen meals. They look for those under 300 calories, 10 grams of protein, and 700 milligrams or less of sodium, low 12 grams of fat, and at least 10 grams of fiber. For more nutrients and fiber, they nuke a small package of frozen veggies and add them to the meal. One of their favorites is Amy’s Indian Mattar Tofu. This is a combination of peas, tofu, lentils, tomato, a little onion, and a lightly seasoned sauce with a small portion of rice. Note that the package is not entirely fat free. Eating healthy oils makes us munch less overall because it makes us feel full.
