Frozen Food/Food in the Fridge

I get asked these 3 questions a lot !

Is it  ok to have food from the fridge, which is a day old ?

Is it okay to have frozen food?

Will  leaving food  in the fridge/ freezer  change the calories of the food.

Few things to remember:

  • Even if bread is rotten; its calories will remain the same. Calories will not change.
  • Food in the fridge is  absolutely fine. Thats why it was invented …. hehe
  • Frozen vegetables in packets are sometimes fresher than the vegetables you buy from a shop. With frozen vegetables they are frozen immediately after  picked whilst fresh vegetables may take a while to reach the market.

We all have very busy lives and it’s always good to freeze foods or leave foods in fridge for a day or two. Just make sure that you warm the food properly.
