You probably don’t want to hear it again. So forgive us for saying it again. The healthiest meals you can eat are those that you make on your own, from fresh, healthy, whole foods.
But what if you can’t go to the grocery store for fresh produce?
Fortunately, there are lots of healthy frozen foods that can last for as long as it takes for you to get to the produce section again.
4 Nutritionist-Approved Frozen Foods
Proper nutrition is all about balance and variety. In other words, you need to get a variety of nutrients from different foods to get a proper balance of nutrients. These healthy frozen foods are among your best options.
- Edamame Beans – Baby soybeans are famous for being high in protein. But, considering they haven’t even reached maturity yet, they have so much more to offer! They’re also great sources of fibre, calcium, folate, iron, and vitamin C.
- Baby Spinach – One issue with buying fresh foods is that not everything is always in season. Baby spinach can be tough to come by at times. But you can keep frozen baby spinach in your freezer to enjoy its health benefits anytime, including heart health, lower cholesterol and, for all the Popeye fans, its muscle-building nitrates. Try our recipe “Parmesan and Roasted Garlic New Potatoes with Spinach”, we’re sure you’ll love it!
- Wild Blueberries – If you love antioxidants in your food, you must have an irresistible crush on blueberries. And wild blueberries can offer more than twice the antioxidants of regular blueberries! Wild blueberry smoothie anyone?
- Wild Salmon – Frozen almost from the moment it comes from the ocean, wild, sustainably-caught salmon is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which help reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of cancer. Why not try our Grilled Salmon Salad recipe at home?
