Cauliflower is one of the healthiest foods ever and, if you keep it in your regular diet, it even helps you sleep better at night! Whether you’re going for a soup or a bowl of fried rice, the frozen cauliflower will help you complete your meal and stay healthy.
Tip: you can freeze it precooked, so the only thing you need to do is take it out of the freezer and it’ll be ready to use in any meal!
It’s well-known that green veggies have a lot of benefits. For example, it can:
- Lower blood pressure
- Decrease heart diseases
- Reduce blood cholesterol
- Protect against certain types of cancer
That being said, you need to have them in your diet! So rush to the market and grab some green vegetables to put in your freezer. You can pick veggies like spinach, kale, and peas that will be great to make wonderful healthy dishes during your week.
I’ve recently decided to try freezing fruit at home and I can say this totally pays off. I still have a long way to go, but I’ve tried it with grapes and pineapple already. I mostly used them in juices and smoothies and both had great results!
If you bought fruit and you notice them getting too ripe before you’ll be able to eat them, chop and freeze too. It’ll save your fruit (and your money), and give you an ingredient for ice cream or something like that later in the week.
More than that,
I’ve mentioned the smoothies here. You can also keep a couple of bags with items for a smoothie separated, it’ll save you time in the morning to simply add water or milk and go live your day! Make sure to mix fruits and veggies for a more sustainable “meal.
The beauty of frozen precooked whole grains is that you can simply heat them up and they’ll be ready to make a quick dish or side dish. Brown rice and quinoa are good examples of grains you can add to your healthy diet.
You should always try all the options and choose your favorites! Also, try different combinations and recipes with the same type of frozen food before you decide on whether you like it or not.
