Cooking food is a skill that takes time and effort to build. Even after mastering the art of cooking, it is impossible to make delicious meals in 10 minutes! Many dishes need more than an hour of preparation and cooking for them to give you the satisfaction of a delicious meal. But with work taking over our lives and many restaurants becoming unsafe environments, cooking might become a mightier task than ever before. That is especially if your busy schedule does not allow you to pre-plan your meals and keep your fridge regularly stocked with the freshest groceries. The solution to this problem has to be ready to eat food.
What are the advantages of ready to eat foods?
Ready-to-eat foods are made such that they are easy to store for a long time without spoilage. They require minimal meal prep time too. They are temperature-sealed and have necessary additives that enable them to have a long shelf-life. Most ready to eat foods are pre-made and only require heating, addition of hot water or defrosting.
Ready to eat foods are pre-portioned and contain all the ingredients inside, which means there is no need to buy the ingredients for the dish either! Most of these products are also appropriately seasoned so, if you don’t know how to cook, this will be a lifesaver!
Most ready to eat products are perfect for every kind of meal: breakfast, lunch and dinner. Gravies and dals usually require mixing in hot water and boiling and do not take more than 5-10 minutes! Here is how ready to eat meals can be incorporated into every meal of your day:
