Nowadays, people are constantly moving due to a demanding work schedule and family obligations, including moms. One consequence of the busy life is that food may be eaten in a rush.

Usually, with one hand, while the other is used to navigate the vehicle, sending messages on their mobile phone while commuting, or type on their computer while at work and at the same time eating lunch. Busy moms may not have the time to cook family meals.

Fortunately, processed frozen foods can help to reduce more than half of your cooking time, giving you just enough time to whip some healthy meals for you and your family.

Frozen foods are half-cooked meals that are stored for next use in a freezer. Since most of the work is finished, busy moms can heat the food for a few minutes and perhaps add a few ingredients and serve, saving you time and energy.

Freezing is a method of natural preservation and does not require additional preservatives. By freezing, vitamins, minerals, and important nutrients are locked in. Frozen food, therefore, is a real alternative to fresh food, which is just as nutritionally healthy, especially if you have a busy schedule.

EB’s processed frozen seafood products have their nutrients locked in, unlike fresh produce that loses some nutrients during storage over time. In general, the nutrient content of frozen seafood is the same and, in some cases, much greater than that of its fresh counterparts. Generally, the mineral content remains the same as that found in fresh foods.

 

Why Buy Frozen Seafood?

The best backup choice for busy moms is frozen seafood and vegetables. They can easily be a genuine alternative to fresh food that takes longer preparation and cook time. It’s just as good nutritionally as fresh. Besides, after the day’s work, you need something you can easily cook without adding to the day’s stress.

If you and your family want to have a healthy, nutritious diet but lack time to cook fresh food, it can be a great source of nutrients to have processed frozen seafood products, vegetables, and fruits in your freezer.

Using Frozen Seafood

From a food safety point of view, it is critical not to refreeze after the product has been thawed. Most frozen crumbed foods are cooked from frozen, so you don’t have to think ahead. And prawns are quickly thawed by putting cold water in a bowl and then draining in a sieve.

A variety of cooking methods are mentioned on the label. We do not suggest deep or shallow frying, as these methods add a lot of fat and kilojoules unnecessarily. Oven-baking is a better way to cook crumbed products. Stir-fry foods such as prawns.

 

In a Nutshell

Finally, not only are EB’s frozen seafood products fast and simple to prepare, but they also help reduce food wastage.
