5 reasons why frozen food is good for you
Frozen food has come under scrutiny over the years with many people labelling them in the same category as processed grub. But there is a difference between the two – a big difference. In fact, frozen foods can actually do wonders for your health.
Here are 5 reasons why frozen foods are the heroes you deserve:
1. Free from the nasty stuff
Processed foods are full of salt in order to preserve it for longer and to better its taste. And yes, you guessed it, processed foods aren’t that tasty - it’s just the salt that is tickling your taste buds. Sodium is also included in processed foods to enhance colour and help bind ingredients. Frozen food, on the other hand, does not require preservatives; it’s just being frozen in time until you are hungry.

Just because you buy fruit and veg doesn’t mean they’re fresh. Many supermarket vegetables are stored for weeks, and with research stating a clear link between storage and vitamin loss, you may be losing out. On the other hand, Frozen vegetables get picked, washed and blanched within the hour, locking in all the goodness that you should be getting from your groceries.
3. Waste not want not
We live in a society of wasters. According to research, seven in 10 households will regularly throw away up to 20 items of fresh or chilled food straight into the bin every month. Not only is it a complete waste of good food but think of how much money you are wasting. Frozen food is measured and it’s easy to keep and use. Cook what you need and save the rest.
Getting lean takes time, effort and a whole lot of good food. Frozen food is generally cheaper than fresh food so you can buy in bulk and keep it in the freezer until you need it. There is nothing worse than coming home and realising there is nothing in the cupboards. A freezer full of food puts an end to that problem.
