The Food - When I think frozen entrees, I usually think of goop with a bunch of chemicals in it. What I liked about PG Frozen was that all ingredients are sourced locally whenever possible, most entrees use fewer than 10 ingredients with no preservatives or chemicals. Frozen meals come vacuum-sealed and you can reheat in a toaster, convection oven or microwave.
Cost - The cost of the meals are around $20 per day, depending on the size. Not a bad value when I easily spend $5 on breakfast, $10 on lunch and $15 on dinner when eating out.
How It Works - I chose the Weight Loss plan that is made-to-order based on the gender, height, weight and activity level and was allotted 1200 calories a day. I chose my meal options from Personal Gourmet’s virtual Frozen Supermarket and they were delivered within two business days and arrived weekly in a cooler bag.

What I Did Miss - Eating fresh food. I recommend adding a small side salad, some steamed green veggies or even a squeeze of lemon to your meals. My go to snack between meals was a crispy apple or some fresh fruit. If I wanted more flavour, I would put a tablespoon or two of salsa to spice things up.

My all-time favourite was the cheesy tuna melt on a toasted whole wheat English muffin - tasty and healthy. I also loved all the egg dishes, buckwheat waffles and anything in a burrito format.
