This week at ROYO HQ, we’ve partnered up with Hunter Stoler (aka, “Health with Hunter”) to bring you 5 healthy freezer staples to keep on hand at home!
As a Certified Health Coach and Nutritionist, Hunter is always on the lookout for ways to help his clients “eat clean, get lean, and feel good”. One of his key recommendations is to keep a well-stocked freezer, filled with delicious and healthy staples.
Why frozen foods, you may ask? Well, there are a few reasons:
So, without further ado, here are the five must-have items that should always be in your freezer, according to Hunter:
“If you’re looking for a quick and healthy breakfast or lunch option, ROYO bread and bagels are a great choice! the Everything Low Carb Keto Bagel is one of my favorites! These convenient options are packed with fiber and protein, keeping you full and satisfied for hours. The ingredients in ROYO’s products are natural, the fluffy texture and taste are perfect, and they last in the freezer for 6-9 months!”
2. Frozen Organic Wild Blueberries
“Blueberries are known for their antioxidant and nutritional benefits. My all-time favorite are the frozen organic wild ones from Whole Foods. These are the perfect addition to a tasty yogurt bowl, adding around seven grams of fiber per serving and a ton of health benefits! They’re also known as a superfood, meaning they’re packed with vitamins, nutrients, and fiber. You can’t go wrong with these.”
“When I want a clean caffeine fix on the go, I love to grab one of these. They’re super easy and convenient with no added sugars. You just let the frozen coffee pod sit at room temperature for a few minutes, pour it into a cup, and add water and the milk or creamer of your liking! The quality of Cometeer’s coffee is amazing (plus, the capsules are recyclable!).”
4. Frozen Bananas and Zucchini Slices
“Adding frozen bananas and zucchini slices to your morning smoothie are a great way to make it thicker and add some extra nutritional benefits. Bananas provide natural sweetness and help fill you up, and zucchini is a great source of fiber and vitamins.”
5. Frozen High-Fiber, High Protein Muffins
“One of my favorite ways to plan ahead for a healthy week is to put aside time on a Sunday to make some high-fiber, high-protein blueberry muffins. It’s a great way to ensure I always have a nutrient-dense breakfast or snack option, especially if I’m in a time crunch!”
One of Hunter’s HWH Hacks is to keep healthy options like these around, to ensure he doesn’t have to resort to unhealthy or more processed items, no matter how busy his schedule is! In fact, Hunter attributes these staples to having helped him lose 50 lbs over the past two years! (That – along with a balanced 80-20 mentality – 80% delicious, healthy eating and 20% more “fun” foods, in moderation!).
