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.

The information I provide is based on scientific evidence but explained in a very non-scientific way. I want to break the myths around diet and food. I never want to give diet plans rather I want to empower people on their food and lifestyle choices, so that people can make their own diet plans for the rest of their lives.
