Save time with frozen vegetables

If you’re sometimes pushed for time or need a quick meal but have no fresh food in the house then keeping a variety of frozen veg staples in the freezer is one of your biggest friends. Our Nutrition for Everyone plans use a lot of veg so you’re sure to need plenty to hand! 

What's the best diet for weight loss

You could easily do some batch freezing yourself one weekend, or Picard (available from Ocado) sell ready chopped and frozen veg, and so do Aldi and Morrisons. Yes it’s possibly more expensive if you buy it ready-done but it’s such a good fall-back sometimes.

Frozen veg retains all its nutrients if it’s stored well, so there are no worries there at all.

I always have the following in my freezer and some dried staples in the cupboard such as pasta, rice, couscous, bulgar wheat.

  • Chopped onions
  • Chopped shallots
  • Sliced mixed peppers
  • Chopped fresh tomatoes
  • Chopped red chilli
  • Chopped garlic
  • Chopped ginger
  • Chopped parsley
  • Roast vegetables

Keep a block of Parmesan in the fridge, some tinned tomatoes, sea salt and black pepper and the world is your oyster!
