As many of us are starting to feel the pinch from the rising cost of living, getting the most from our food is more important than ever. That’s where our kitchen hero, the freezer, comes in! Making better use of our freezers is a great way to cut food waste and save money. In fact, families could be £60 a month better off by eating all the food they buy.
Here are our top three #FreezerSavvy tips:
- Make space in your freezer – get creative and use up items with a weekly ‘freezer forage’ meal.
- Find out what foods are freezer-friendly – did you know that eggs, butter, cooked rice and cheese can all be frozen?
- Swap fresh foods for frozen – frozen veg is time-saving and can quickly add more bulk and nutrition to meals.
Which foods can you freeze or how long can you keep something in the freezer? Are frozen foods less nutritious? How can you make best use of a small freezer? Which meals freeze well?
