Always stock these 5 foods in the freezer to reap their health benefits
Is there anything better than a fully stocked refrigerator to get through the week? But that could be wishful thinking when we lead such busy lives. So, to make your life a bit easy, here’s a list of nutritious foods you must stock in your freezer for quick, healthy meals. Avocado pulp or guacamole: Mash the avocado with a fork and a few drops of lime. Store it in a bag or a container. Enjoy the benefits of Vitamin C, good fats, and anti-inflammatory properties anytime. Use it for Mexican bowls or as a dip. Fish: There’s a whole range of frozen fish available – salmon and barramundi – that can be quickly grilled or steamed.
Homemade stock: Stocks can be used in many ways to add flavour to stir fry and soups. Stay away from packaged stock as it is loaded with salt.
Vegetables: Cut up veggies and store them in small bags to be used for curries, salads, pulaos, and more. The nutrient quality of frozen veggies is negatively affected when overcooked. But you can lightly steam or stir fry to retain the value. Berries: Wash and pat dry berries and freeze in a tray for a couple of days. This keeps them firm. Later, pack in zip locks or containers.
