For those of us who lead busy lives, ready meals are a saviour. They're very convenient, they usually taste good, and they're not too expensive. But the one downside has always been that ready meals are generally not as healthy as cooking a meal from scratch yourself, as they're designed to be tasty and filling, not healthy.
However, as people have started to become more health conscious, ready meals have also had to adapt. We've seen a huge rise in the number of low calorie ready meals available to buy, which are ideal for people who want fast food but who also want to watch the amount of calories they consume. We thought it would be useful to round up the best low calorie ready meals that we've found and tried, let's get into it:
Count on Us M&S
Sainsbury's Be Good To Yourself ready meals
The Gym Kitchen
We'll be honest, we find the WeightWatchers products to be very hit-and-miss. We really like the low calorie crisps from WW that we wrote about previously, but we haven't enjoyed some of the other products that we've tried from the range. But these ready meals from WW are actually very good, especially this Thai Red Chicken Curry ready meal that we tried, which was flavoursome and filling. And with just 342 calories per pack, we didn't feel too guilty about eating it either. Learn more and explore the entire range here - groceries.asda.com
