Healthy freezer meals
The perfect recipe in the lead up with winter where a warming soup is always welcomed! This will be a winner with the family, and don’t forget as a great little add on, top the soup with toasted pepitas and a swirl of sour cream, or toasted sourdough or rye croutons. Yum!
Simple chicken soup with zucchini noodles
One of our favourites! Chicken soup is so easy to make and even easier to keep in batches in your freezer.

We’ve taken a little twist on your normal noodle soup by replacing it with zucchini noodles - we promise it’s delicious!

Tips on freezing food
Before you run off and create one of the tasty recipes above, we’ve provided a few tips around freezing your foods:
Wait until the food has entirely cooled down - it could cause other foods in the freezer to melt as it will adjust the temperature of your freezer.
Be sure to wrap your food in airtight containers to avoid freezer burn. Note: freezer food is perfectly safe to eat, however, you may notice a slight change in texture or taste.
Freeze your food in realistic portions - you don’t want to run into the issue of having to defrost soup enough for the whole family if you only need one serve.
Don’t forget to label your foods so you know exactly what is in the container, and the date.
