What’s In My Freezer + Health Benefits
Hi Friends! Today I am sharing 10 of my favorite freezer items. These are our go-to staples that you’ll always find in our freezer! Click play to watch the video below!
Frozen Whole Food Staples
Frozen Wild Blueberries: Low-bush or “wild” blueberries are smaller in size and contain more antioxidants compared to traditional blueberries. 1 cup of wild blueberries contains 24% of your RDI for vitamin C and 36% of your RDI for vitamin K. Consuming blueberries has also been associated with supporting heart health, lowering blood pressure and supporting brain function.
Frozen Strawberries: I love adding frozen strawberries to my morning smoothies. They are packed with vitamin C, manganese, folate (vitamin B9), potassium and fiber!
Frozen Cauliflower: One of the easiest ways for me to consume cauliflower everyday is to add it to my smoothies! You can buy whole cauliflower, wash, chop and freeze or also look for frozen cauliflower in the freezer aisle! Cauliflower is a nutrient dense food! One cup of cauliflower contains 77% of your RDI of vitamin C, 20% of your RDI for vitamin K and additional vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B6, folate (vitamin B9), potassium, manganese, magnesium and phosphorus. Cauliflower is high in fiber and known as a cruciferous vegetable. Cruciferous vegetables contain a compound known as glucosinolates, which may help to fight cancer.
Frozen Peas: Peas are one of the kids favorite vegetables and they are easy and quick to make. A ½ cup of green peas contains 4 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein along with 34% of your RDI for vitamin A!
Healthy Freezer Products
Hilary’s Veggie Burgers: These are one of our favorite veggie burgers! I love the options with 8 grams of protein. They are made with real, whole foods such as millet and chickpeas. We love to bake and top on a salad or enjoy as a burger with ketchup, mustard and sauerkraut!
Daily Harvest: We also have some Daily Harvest in the freezer. They are so great for quick lunches or snacks. I’m a big fan of flatbreads and harvest bowls. The scoops (which are the dairy-free ice-cream) are also so great! You can also use my code DHMEGANR25 to save $25 off Daily Harvest!
Frozen Amy’s Burritos: We also love to keep a few frozen burritos in the freezer. Aaron and I will eat these for lunch with a side salad, ideally topped with avocado and salsa! I love the bean and veggie burritos.
Waffles: I love these grain-free and gluten-free waffles. I typically have one of these as a morning snack after I workout with a scoop of almond butter or peanut butter!
Bonafide Provisions Bone Broth: I make a big batch of homemade soup every week. It’s my favorite meal prep for easy, healthy lunches throughout the week. Bonafide Provisions Bone Broth is our go-to! Bone broth can be a great staple to support gut health.
