Frozen meat dishes aren't typically the best thing to buy if you're looking to eat healthy. But if you're set on a frozen meal containing some kind of meat protein, there are some things you can look for on the healthier side.

One rule of thumb to always follow is to steer clear of stroganoffs and casserole dishes that come floating in heavy cream sauces and gravies. You should also look for meat dishes that have vegetables as sides. Watch out for anything that contains ham and bacon, especially in breakfast foods. These dishes tend to be higher in calories, sodium and saturated fat.

Just like with the non-frozen varieties, poultry and seafood meals will contain less fat than most red meats and pork. Look for turkey- and chicken-based meals. In the end, the best thing to do is to carefully read the labels and look out for fat, sodium and caloric content.
