Freezer Friendly

With school holidays around the corner, do yourself a favour and start stocking your freezer with reliable frozen meals that you can grab out in the morning and reheat for the family at night. We all know that getting back into the weekly routine can take some time to get used to and you'll sure enough find yourself scrambling on those busy night to get a good meal on the table. There are some meals that just hold up better in the freezer and some which would just fail. That's why we've listed some of our favourite make-ahead meals that are sure to please a crowd and the other perk being, very few dishes to clean up!

Beef Bourguignon

Beef slow-cooked in red wine with traditional bacon, how could you go wrong? Finish with Swiss brown mushrooms, shallots and parsley and you’ll be transported to a châteaux in Burgundy. Another winner in terms of freezer meals and it can be served with a variety of sides, including mash, polenta or rice. You can find this family favourite here.

Beef Brisket Chilli Con Carne

Our Chilli Con Carne recipe using beef brisket is the most tender and flavourful mix to top tacos or just serve on a bowl of rice with some pickled accompaniments. It perfectly and the flavour actually develops over time. Liv from the office froze hers and then made them into pies the following week to watch the footy, the options are endless! You can find the recipe here.


Hayley McKee's Better Butter Chicken

A mild, tangy curry to introduce your kids to Indian cuisine. Hayley's made a few ingredients swaps for a healthier version with a dash of veggies. You can really sub in any veggies that you have in your fridge like capsicum or spinach or sweet potato. These left-overs are the perfect filling for a pie. You can find this recipe here.

 

 

Stephanie Gobo's Nourishing Chicken Soup

Steph's nourishing soup is the perfect recipe to prepare on a wintery weekend afternoon. It creates a gut healing bone broth and is filled with immune boosting ingredients and anti-inflammatory nutrients. Using the whole chicken, you're left with a huge pot of warming soup, which is exactly what you'll be craving on winter afternoons. Portion it up and throw in your freezer, so that you can just grab and go. Find Steph's recipe here.

With our online store being a huge part of our business, it was crucial to make a conscious and thought-out decision around the packaging that online orders were sent in. After months of research, trialling and getting the final tick of approval from our finance team to increase our packaging spend, we came to the decision to use these innovative bamboo trays wherever possible.

If you have room for the ice gel packs in your freezer, hold onto them as they come in very handy, particularly throughout picnic and bbq season! They last twice as long as bags of ice, they are leakproof and have minimal condensation so your picnic items won’t be spoilt or damaged. We understand that if you're doing your online shop once a week, that you may have too many reusable gel packs for your freezer to handle.
