Well, their math works out, but they seem kinda oddball. Oh, and I forgot there are two servings (which I accounted for in the calories)…so it’s 1100 calories, but 90% of the fat (110% saturated) and 66% of the salt!
If you want pot pie without all the calories, try making it yourself. Replace the crust with phyllo dough and the cream in the sauce with low-fat milk or chicken stock.
I don’t eat any Marie Callender’s foods. They don’t tend to be healthy or kosher-friendly. And yes, I’m aware that kosher pot pies do exist, and are probably just as bad or worse for you. I haven’t tried them, but Mr. Neville has, and he says they’re not that good.
That’s shocking. Tomato soup doesn’t have to have anything in it that’s high in saturated fat or cholesterol. The Campbell’s Soup at Hand Creamy Tomato Soup version has 1 gram of saturated fat and 5 mg of cholesterol. Progresso’s minestrone (which is tomato-based) has 0.5 grams saturated fat and no cholesterol.
They must use a lot of cream in theirs, or something.
Welcome to the appalling stuff you’ve been eating, Friday night edition!
Y’all have got to read the labels before you buy anything you’re not making from scratch, folks. Really. And find out what the food colorings and preservatives do-particularly the nitrates in lunchmeat/hotdogs versus your pancreas.
As someone who would have to live on take out were it not for frozen foods, I can say that there are some decent choices out there. I like the Amy’s Kitchen brand a lot for example. Even the more mainstream brands like Lean Cuisine aren’t bad. The one area where they all do pretty badly though is sodium content. Not sure why that is. Fortunately I don’t seem to be too sensitive to a couple extra grams of salt.
