I’m on my third week of Atkins™. Meal planning hasn’t been as tedious as I thought it might be. Jeremy travels frequently, so most meals are shared with my son Gabe. I wasn’t sure how difficult it would be to prepare Atkins™ friendly meals that were also kid friendly. He enjoys most meats and vegetables, so I just keep rice or pasta sides pre-made so that he can have carbs with his dinner. I also realized that Atkins™ has a large line of frozen meals, these really help me stay on track.
I’m not fond of most frozen meals. I would rather prepare my own food, but sometimes I just don’t have enough time. Frozen meals are a great alternative to running out for fast food, which is rarely diet friendly. I had more writing than usual today, three loads of laundry, shuttling Gabe back and forth to school, a dirty kitchen to clean up, floors to sweep and mop, and animals to care for; I did not have time to prepare my lunch. I grabbed an Atkins™ Beef Merlot frozen dinner from the freezer, Four minutes in the microwave, and I had lunch (pictured above). It was filling and delicious. The meat was tender and the broccoli wasn’t over cooked.
Atkins™ frozen meal have quality meats, vegetables, no fillers or preservatives, and 4-7 net carbs per meal. They are suitable for all phases of the Atkins™ diet including Atkins™ 40. The meals are available at most grocery stores and supermarkets.
Here is a sampling of meals available. I have personally tried the Mexican-Style Chicken and Vegetables, Beef Merlot, and the Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo, and I will definitely eat them again in the future.
Atkins™ also offers personal size pizzas, and they were my favorite. It is so tempting when my family orders pizza. It is so hard to just have one slice. The Atkins™ pizzas allow me to enjoy pizza without the guilt.
My wedding is 6 months away, and I have a goal weight that I would like to meet. I think I can meet my goal by following the Atkins™ diet and exercising regularly. Atkins™ frozen meals are a contributing factor to my success so far.
You should always consult your healthcare professional before changing your diet and exercise routine. I am sharing my experiences on the Atkins™ diet.
