    I was in the kitchen making myself a cup of tea (Not usual) and I noticed a slimmers meal defrosting on the counter top, I was idly reading it, it's a chicken arriabata or something, but any way, it was 448 Calories, which i thought was quite high, but here we go, it was low sugar, 22% of your recommended daily intake, Low fat, 20% and low salt, a whopping 33%. All that in one little slimmers meal. I'm shocked. That's why I don't do processed food.

    Once in a supermarket I was looking at the WW range of 'fresh' ready meals. They had a use by date of a months time! What the hell do they put in a 'fresh' meal to make it last that long!!?? Wouldn't touch it with a barge pole!!

    they are terrible arent they Jim. Why isnt colleen having what you are? Its so much easier to bung some pasta in yourself and make some ragu with a little tinned tomatos basil and garlic!

    Has anyone ever had a ready meal where it has cooked everything in the same time? Usually the potatoes are still hard or veg/rice are cooked until they no longer resemble what they are supposed to be!

    They are grim things regardless or the crap thats in them , would rather a few nuts etc if i wasnt up to cooking . When i cook meals at home like curry /cheeseburger pie etc i do extra and freeze them in foil trays for lazy days :)

    That's a lot. It's a problem with "low fat" though isn't it, they take the fat out and chuck a load of other stuff in that isn't good for you like sugar and salt. Yuk!
