Lean Cuisine Spa Cuisine Gets Fiber-Fortified
Nestle Prepared Foods Co., Solon, Ohio has rejuvenated its Lean Cuisine Spa Cuisine entrees to contain 5-6g of dietary fiber in each serving, or 20 percent of the recommended DV.
Not only does each selection have the benefit of fiber, but the chefs at Lean Cuisine have expanded the Spa Cuisine line by offering three new entrées and five new recipes for a total of 16 meals. Inspired by spa chefs from around the country, these craveable cuisines balance taste-tempting ingredients and flavors with great nutrition. From the freezer to your microwave and ready in about five minutes, the new additions to the Spa Cuisine family are perfect for women who want to treat themselves to a nutritious meal that's full of exciting flavors and tantalizing seasoning blends.
