So, what is actually better, getting prepared meals or cooking fresh food? I find them equally beneficial, let's discuss what they are.
1. Pre-packaged meal - This type of food can be ready in a minute! You need not do anything but get them from the freezer or fridge in some cases. They may not be an immediate hit for your family that's why you have to try it first to find what you like best. Also, you just got to choose what's right for your diet. Some Hormel Compleats are gluten-free and comes in varieties like Chicken & Rice, Sausage Gravy & Roasted Potatoes and Bacon Breakfast Scramble & Sausage Breakfast Scramble.
2. Cooked from scratch - I know, not really from scratch because most are already seasoned, but you still have to cook it, right? ;) The thing I like with home-made meals or meals from scratch is you can incorporate what kind of ingredients you like. Whether you prefer natural, organic, no-MSG, gluten-free, you a free to add whatever you like! Well, I guess it's a good thing Hormel Natural Choice is all of it! It doesn't even have that Nitrate/Nitrite thing! Although, the preparation time depends on method of cooking - I like mine either fried or oven-baked.
So, dear parents, I think it doesn't really matter much whether it fresh or frozen. The ingredients are listed and you can read the nutrition facts. You just got to choose what you think is best for you family, especially if you're into some special kind of diet.
