Easy freezing tips for healthy ready-meals
Make healthy eating a snap with these ideas for your freezer – it’s your new secret weapon!
We know – you don’t always have the time to whip up something nutritious and delicious. And with super-busy schedules, kids to look after or just plain tiredness, it’s no wonder. Luckily, we have just the solution: stock up the freezer, and you’ll have a healthy meal or snack to hand whenever you need it.
Try big batches
Cook up an extra-portioned meal – like a big curry or casserole – work out the SmartPoints for each portion, and freeze it in one or two-serving sizes. That way, every meal is quick and easy – just defrost, and you’ve got a low SmartPoints dinner with no thinking required.
Have a soup-er Sunday
Make a little time on a Sunday (or another convenient day) to prep a batch of soup to freeze. There are plenty of 0 SmartPoints soups chock-full of fresh veggies and spices to fill in your hunger gaps – and you can stow them in the fridge or freezer to use as you need. Just search for 'soup' on your My Day page for dozens of delicious results.
Make stand-by sandwiches
Struggling to put together those lunch boxes in the morning? Make batches of sandwiches when you have the time, and freeze them in plastic wrap to use later. Just check your fillings are freezer-friendly (we don’t recommend lettuce...). Pop your pre-made sandwich in your lunchbox before work, and it’ll be ready to eat by midday.
