Convenience Food – The Hidden Cost

Did you know that: ‘most of the meat, vegetables and fish in our convenience food has been transported and stored whilst frozen. Typically, it is kept at sub-zero temperatures for months, even years, but when it is thawed and cooked, it can be marketed as ‘fresh’.
(Excerpt taken from an article written by Joanna Blythman, 3 March 2015.)

Many ready meals are also packed with artificial preservatives and additives to give them flavour. Chemicals which extend the meal’s shelf life and synthetic vitamins and minerals, which are hard for your body to digest, are also found in many ready meals.

On a weekly, or fortnightly, basis, I can provide home-cooked, delicious meals, ready for the freezer, including instructions for re-heating, and even a copy of the recipe for your own use.

Here is an example of some of the dishes you can enjoy:
