There are some items that are now available to be prepared individually such as individually wrapped pieces of frozen salmon, tilapia, and chicken breasts. There also have resealable bags of pre-formed meatballs and pre-made soups in resealable containers. Be sure to check the amount of sodium in the meatballs and soups if the physician has recommended a low sodium diet. Also, there are frozen biscuits and rolls that can be cooked in single servings while the rest remain frozen in a resealable bag. There are now resealable packages of frozen vegetables and fruits such as blueberries, peaches and strawberries that can be quickly and easily utilized. The frozen fruits are great for smoothies...no need to add ice.
