Fresh and frozen food isn’t very different with regards to the nutrients it contains. The difference is when you buy semi and fully-prepared frozen meals. The way in which these meals are prepared is what strips it from all the nutritional benefits.
Here’s what you need to avoid when it comes to buying frozen food:
Frozen pizzas are more likely to contain additives and numerous other unwanted ingredients. If you don’t feel like preparing a pizza from scratch, it’s better if you go to a pizza shop and buy it and eat it there than buy a frozen one and cook it at home.
One frozen cheeseburger contains as much as 500 calories and approximately 15 grams of the unhealthiest fats. Nutritional fibers are almost non-existent in this meal. Try to avoid it at any cost.
Frozen pasta dishes
The numerous semi-prepared dishes which contain pasta are usually packed with Trans fats which are extremely dangerous for your health. They also contain sodium based additives.
Frozen chicken croquets and sea food sticks
These types of frozen meat have very little real meat in them but are full of Trans fats. It’s a rule of thumb that frozen chicken contains two or three times more fat than one regular cheeseburger.
Frozen French fries
We all know that regular fries are extremely unhealthy so imagine how unhealthy frozen French fries can be. Besides, they are usually packed in plastic bags which may contain some harmful chemicals.
Frozen ready-made pastry and cakes
Any pastry or cake which can be prepared in 2 minutes cannot be good for you. Instead, try to make your own homemade desserts. This way you’ll know for sure what you put inside and you can control the amount of sugar and additives you put.
