So we found 10 frozen and boxed foods made with real, easy-to-pronounce ingredients. And when you've got the time (and inclination) to cook, we've got easy homemade versions of those same dishes. Either way, it's a win-win!

Time is always of essence. Looking for healthy, quick meals? Whether store-bought or homemade, these recipe ideas are delicious.
