Dietitian's Top Pick: Amy's Black Bean and Veggie Enchiladas Frozen Meal

 
As we continue to Explore the Taste of Eating Right for National Nutrition Month® we venture down the frozen food aisle. Many guests will skip past frozen meals because they think the food is too processed or not "healthy" enough. We encourage you to take another look.

Amy's Black Bean and Vegetable Enchiladas receive one of the highest NuVal scores for frozen meals (remember the higher the NuVal score, the better the nutrition), making it a Dietitian's Top Pick. It is also vegan, gluten free and 90% organic.

Many frozen foods are also blasted for their sodium intake. Amy's Enchiladas contain 780 mg for the entire container, providing only a third of your daily sodium intake.
