Food Focus: Top Five Healthy Freezer Foods
We’ve given so much attention to the kitchen cupboards, our freezers are starting to feel left out! Frozen foods are another great way to keep high-quality meals and snacks on hand. Being organised is key to having a healthy diet, keeping your blood sugar balanced and stopping sugar cravings. These days there are times when we all need convenience foods, they don’t have to be unhealthy. See the recipe of the month for a quick, easy and healthy meal.
Here are our five favourite healthy food choices to keep in your freezer:
1. Ezekiel or Essene Sprouted Bread – slice & freeze ready to toast (best with lots of avocado on top)
2. Organic Frozen Veggies – make a fabulous stir-fry on the fly
3. Brown Rice – cook in advance & freeze in individual portions
4. Bananas – peel & freeze ready for smoothies & home-made ice cream
5. Organic Frozen Mixed Berries – perfect for yummy smoothies
No time to prepare veggies, even with fully stocked kitchen cupboards and freezer? Get your daily dose of greens with a high-quality green powder. Any of the following are great: wheatgrass, barley grass, kamut grass and sea vegetables, green powders will give you a huge boost of nutrition and energy. Use 1/4-1/2 tsp green powder per 8 ounces of pure, filtered water. Drink up! These green powders can help stop sugar cravings by alkalising your body.
Liquid chlorophyll can also be a great addition to our diets. It helps to rebuild and replenish our red blood cells, boosting our energy and increasing our wellbeing almost instantly. Chlorophyll has the power to regenerate our bodies at the molecular and cellular level and is known to help cleanse the body, fight infection, help heal wounds, and promote the health of the circulatory, digestive, immune, and detoxification systems. It often comes with a mild peppermint flavour so can liven up your water and help you drink more. Give it a try!
