New Seafood Selections from LEAN CUISINE(R) are Nutritious and Delicious
SOLON, Ohio, June 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Whole grains, antioxidants, fiber, Omega-3s -- we know they're good for us and want to reap the nutritional benefits they offer, but we don't always know how to incorporate them into convenient and tasty meals. A wealth of research has been released recently regarding the heart-healthy benefits of the Omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA. These types of Omega-3s are most commonly found in many types of seafood like fish. However, purchasing and preparing fresh seafood several times a week is not always a viable option for today's busy, yet health-conscious consumer. That's why LEAN CUISINE(R) is pleased to introduce Seafood Selections entrees, all offering an excellent source of the Daily Value of DHA/EPA in each serving*. With fewer than 350 calories and 8 grams of fat or less, Seafood Selections entrees are also an excellent source of lean protein.
The chefs at LEAN CUISINE(R) pride themselves on creating meals which feature the nutritional benefits consumers want, and the taste and quality they deserve. They have selected quality Alaskan Pollock and farmed shrimp from Thailand for Seafood Selections. In addition, the entrees feature exciting and contemporary preparations such as tortilla and parmesan crusted filets and Szechuan style stir-fry. Accompaniments include flavorful vegetables, whole grain pastas and unique accents such as poblano peppers, and sour cream and white wine sauces. With nine Seafood Selections entrees to choose from, even the most discerning palates are sure to find a favorite.
"USDA's MyPyramid encourages Americans to eat fish rich in Omega-3s more often. LEAN CUISINE(R) Seafood Selections offer a convenient way for women to include more Omega-3s into their diet," said Kristin Gibbs, Director of Marketing for LEAN CUISINE(R). "We are proud to be among the first to offer such a wide variety of entrees featuring delicious seafood choices."
