Day 7 – Feed the Freezer!

Turkey Stock, Peas, Broccolli Frozen Strawberries Bread, Herbs

Today’s post is slightly different to normal. No knowledge imparting, no demonstration of moves, no recipes.

Today we talk about a general tip that might help you be healthier and manage your food, meals and diets in a better way.

Feeding the freezer is a great phrase. I am a massive fan of doing so! My schedule is a bit all over the place and the biggest issue I had was getting fresh fruit and vegetables in my diet and keeping them long enough so they didn’t go off. So I started freezing. I am lucky enough to have two freezers, one of which is my height and is packed with things in every single drawer!!

I have frozen fruits which are amazing for smoothies in the morning and I have vegetables which I use in every meal I cook. Today I made a pasta bake, fresh sauce and I used frozen carrots, frozen onions, frozen garlic, frozen mushrooms, frozen peas and even the mince meat I used was frozen, but taken out yesterday so it could defrost properly.

Using my freezer is the best thing. Now I always have fruit and vegetables to hand and such a wide variety that you couldn’t imagine. I can buy things cheaply when they are on special offer, sometimes just Β£1 for an entire bowl and they get put in the freezer. Some vegetables are chopped or chunked and frozen in their bags, otherwise are frozen whole.

Not only that but when I create a meal, I always over cook. It is crazy how much I always end up cooking but then they go in small containers and get frozen. On days when I don’t have the time or energy to cook I just grab a home made ready meal and dinner is done!

So give it a go, get started and make space in the freezer. Throw out the ice cream, the ice lollies and any other things that shouldn’t be in there and then get out and buy as much fruit and vegetables as you can fit in there and get feeding that freezer!!

Enjoy and ciao for now x
