Why Fresh Food is BETTER For You Than Frozen
Posted: 18th September 2017
Simply Fit Food ensures all meals made contain only the freshest possible ingredients delivered next and cooked fresh from scratch. No frozen ingredients whatsoever are used in our meals.
The Reasons Why We Don’t Use Frozen Ingredients
We believe in providing the most nutritiously dense meals possible. By using frozen ingredients this decreases the nutrient value of the meal meaning the vitamins and minerals you would usually consume in a regular meal that contains fresh vegetables and meat is almost halved if consuming a frozen meal equivalent
A fresh meal provides the following things that a frozen meal does not:
Nutrients: Frozen meals contain less fruit or veg as these are the main ingredients that provide the most vitamins and minerals in a meal. Consuming enough vitamins & minerals is vital for our health and developing an effective immune system
Hydration: Fresh fruit and veg contain more water meaning they provide natural hydration for the body.
Ingredients: A fresh meal, such as ours will contain zero additives or preservatives, flavourings and other chemicals to maintain a longer shelf life. Instead we seal our meals in a way that no air can get in or out. Provided our meals are stored in a fridge they will last for up to 7 days without adding a single preservative.
Salt: Fresh meals are far lower in salt that frozen meals. Salt is added to extending shelf life.
Locally Sourced ingredients: We pride ourselves in sourcing locally and supporting local producers. The reason being is we like to know where our ingredients come from, knowing we are choosing the best for our customers. We source our meat from Georges Craft Butchers in Drogheda, our fish from Boyne Valley Seafood in Drogheda and our vegetables from our local farmers market.
A consistent diet that includes fresh foods will provide a person with more energy, both physically and emotionally, and a healthier lifestyle overall. So, the next time you pick up a frozen meal in a supermarket or take a bag of frozen veg from the freezer for dinner, remember what’s more important: foods that will last, or a lasting nutrition
