>Herman and I rarely cook dinner for ourselves. Most of the time, we eat out or head to my parent’s house for dinner. It’s not that I’m a bad cook (well, Herman may disagree), it’s just that we lead very busy lives and don’t always have the time to cook a well-balanced meal.

I recently decided to buy a few of those frozen meals that come in a bag, hoping that the meals would be a more healthier and economical choice. To my surprise, I made an awesome discovery! Check out the frozen food section of your local supermarket and find frozen food products from Contessa Premium Foods. They have a great collection of healthy seafood, chicken, and beef entrees. Herman and I loved the Orange Chicken! Mmmmm…Naimas!

Not only are the meals delicious, Contessa Foods is also mindful of the environment and operates with sustainable practices. Here’s an excerpt from their website regarding their “Green Cuisine Plant”:

“Contessa has long been committed to protecting the environment. Our shrimp is farm-raised and harvested through a process known as aquaculture, a sustainable, environmentally sound alternative to catching seafood in the wild. Our methods are entirely turtle-safe, and we’ve long supported conservation organizations dedicated to preserving a specific species of marine turtle. And now Contessa is taking that commitment one step further with its new Green Cuisine plant.

Located in Los Angeles, the new plant is certified by the United States Green Building Council’s (USGBC) Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) New Construction (NC) green building rating system. Contessa’s Green Cuisine plant achieved Gold-level certification.”

Yay! What a fabulous company!
