There are so many reasons to make better use of your freezer at the start of a new year, and top of the list is the craving for cheap, warming meals that are quick to serve up on dark winter nights. I’m going to show you how a little get-ahead shopping and batch cooking can make healthy eating easier

How to eat healthier: PART 8


FROM THE BOX OF FISH FINGERS AND bag of garden peas ready to feed the kids on busy weeknights, to that emergency loaf of bread and the ice cubes awaiting Friday night’s gin and tonic, most of us would be lost without our freezer. But it’s good for more than just-in-case supplies. With purse strings tightening after Christmas, now’s the ideal time to rethink the way you use your freezer, to make it work harder for you, your bank balance and your health.

Stock up to save money

UNLIKE YOUR FRIDGE, which needs space and airflow to make it work efficiently, a well-stocked freezer is cheaper to run. That’s because frozen products help to keep their neighbours frozen. Too much free space in a freezer leaves air around the contents, which can lead to what’s known as freezer burn.

This especially affects food that’s incorrectly wrapped. It occurs when moisture in the food evaporates into the freezer air, leaving dry pockets in the food that are visible as white splotches or discolouration – not harmful to eat, but not particularly tasty, either.

So if you’ve just had a big kitchen clear-out, buy a few extra loaves of bread or bags of frozen veg to keep your freezer in good nick.
