I’m lucky to have a fairly big freezer, and I can’t recommend it enough, for so many paleo reasons. Here's why a good size freezer could transform your paleo diet
Once a week cooking
I’m a huge fan of batch cooking – if you’re going to go to the effort of cooking dinner, why not make 8 dinners out of it? Whatever I’m making, I always at least double up the ingredients. I freeze individual portions in large freezer bags that I lay flat. This means they’ll defrost far quicker than if you freeze them in a big lump.
Grass-fed meat in bulk
So many farmers will sell amazing quality grass-fed beef – but only if you’ll buy a whole cow, or even just a quarter. This is great to share with friends – it’s far cheaper, you get some great cuts you might otherwise overlook. But it will need a lot of freezer space. With a big freezer, you could get all the meat you need to last for months and months in one purchase.
If you’ve had a big harvest of home grown veggies, just freeze it for fresh home grown produce, all year round.
Smoothies always ready
Fruit is another great reason to have a good size freezer. Grad a handful of berries and add to your blender mix for an instant ice cool smoothie.
Paleo ice cream
Who needs an ice cream maker when you can make your own paleo ice cream and have it waiting for you in the freezer!
A freezer is the best way to eat on a budget. Whenever you find special buys of meat or produce – buy and freeze!
