Here are our top 3 reason why we’re starting a revolution towards frozen food.

1. Frozen food is nutritious.

A common myth we’re always hearing is that frozen ready meals are bad for you.

NEWS FLASH: Firstly, frozen food is nutritious… flash freezing actually locks in flavour & nutrients. Numerous studies comparing frozen and fresh vegetables found no difference in nutritional content. Freezing is the best, oldest form of preservation there is and is why there is no need for added preservatives or nasties.   

Secondly take your standard supermarket frozen meals, they aren’t bad for you because they’re frozen. They’re bad for you because they are unhealthy to start with. If you mass manufacture food that’s full of preservatives & substitutes then freeze it, all that nasty stuff is still in there when you heat it up. However, if you take nourishing, wholesome food and freeze it, then cook it — you get nourishing, wholesome food out the other end.

2. Frozen food offers convenience.

Filling your freezer full of fabulous food is convenient.

We all have busy lives and plans can change constantly, as a result meal prepping can be tricky.  Choosing frozen food gives you the flexibility over your meal planning.  All the homecooked meals can be stored in the freezer until you’re ready, whether it be a weekend treat or a quick working lunch.
