Pre-prepared foods - taboo?

mariacarmen | Sep 12, 2007 12:54 PM

I just discovered a Trader Joe's pre-prepared food that i am in love with (someone gave me a pack.) It's their Tuna in Thai Green Curry and it comes in one of those thick silver-plastic bag things, the kind that you can ship salmon across the country in. you open the package and nuke it for 2 minutes. The flavors were incredible for pre-prepared food - fairly spicy, subtle, sweet, with specks of peppers, and chunks of tuna. it's only 100 calories or so, so best over some rice or something if you want to make a real lunch out of it. however, at 5 carbs a serving, it makes a great low-carb lunch. i added a couple of hard boiled eggs to it, to give it greater density and protein, and it was absolutely delicious! i can see it being good over some steamed broccoli or cauliflower also . . . anyone else tried it? or have other pre-prepped foods you're not ashamed to admit to eating?
