Foods are perishable products, which means that they quickly deteriorate if they are not stored properly. We tend to put most of our food in the fridge, and for a very good reason: the cold air keeps the food fresh and slows down the activity of bacteria, which means that the foods will deteriorate at a slower pace. However, there are several foods that should never be frozen, and one of the most common mistakes people do is that after they unfreeze meat products, they re-freeze them back on. Here are the top 7 worst frozen foods that you should avoid:
Pizza is by far one of the most delicious foods known to man: however, it is a known fact that it is anything but healthy. Although it may be boosting with flavor, you might want to think twice before consuming frozen pizza, for two strong reasons: first of all, this is a pre-cooked product and the chances are that it contains tens of additives, preservatives and other chemicals. Second of all, even if it does contain nutritious veggies, the cooking process will destroy part of their properties. If you really must, eat a fresh pizza rather than a frozen one!
Who doesn’t love this delicious Mexican delight? Tasty as it may be, you need to avoid the frozen burrito at all costs: on average, it contains 500 calories and over 15 grams of fat, half of which are saturated. Leaving aside the nutritional value of the frozen burrito which makes it anything but a diet-food, burritos can get a watery taste when you unfreeze and cook them. Besides, the golden rule of frozen foods is as follows: the fewer ingredients, the better!
Usually, frozen cheeseburgers are usually smaller than the regular cheeseburgers you are used to. Small as they may be, they come with great nutritional deficits, and even if you may be tempted to throw a frozen cheeseburger in the microwave when you come home tired from work, you might want to think twice. The average cheeseburger has around 10 grams of fat and it is packed with sodium, not to mention that it is very low in dietary fiber as well, which means that it won’t be long until you feel hungry again.
