Lean Cuisines are the staple of any health-conscious person's diet, with their balanced nutrition and wide variety of delicious convenient meals. Thanks to Stouffers and companies like them, the microwave has become the best friend of millions of Americans, replacing the stove and oven with tantalizingly easier methods for sustenance.

To add to convenience, the designers of the packaging included the important nutrition information right on the front so you do not have to waste any energy looking at the side panel. The number of calories as well as the quantity of fat (in grams) are displayed on the left top corner right under the name of the meal.

Here's a list of the meals offered in single serving sizes, many of which are super tastey. I included the number of calories and number of grams of fat in each meal with a to-the-point description of what it is with none of the fluffy talk the box tells you. Don't forget that each meal listed here comes with a full serving of veggies, unless noted otherwise. You'll still need to come up with two to four more servings on your own throughout the day. Good luck!
