#ShareTheLove Update - Making a difference to those in need September 14 2017


We’ve always maintained that food is sharing. Whether it is with your closest friend after a hard day, or happy family meal, it brings people together, it is a time to relax, to share and to understand others.

As food lovers we have always been motivated by this theory, but it's also so much more than that. And that is what drove us to start our #ShareTheLove campaign.

Tea vs coffee - which cuppa should you be drinking? August 21 2017

Reading this with a mug of coffee in your hand? Then you have permission to feel smug. The latest pan-European research, led by epidemiologist Dr Marc Gunter of Imperial College, London – following a study of more than half a million people over 16 years – has shown that those who drank the most coffee had a reduced risk of premature death from any cause.

A #ShareTheLove Update! April 06 2017

When Love Food Ready Meals was created, it was done so on the basis that we wanted to feed hungry people. From the time-saving convenience that our meals provide, to our #ShareTheLove campaign, an initiative where for every meal that we sell, we donate one to a child in need. Years on and our support for our #ShareTheLove campaign still grows strong...

To Freeze Or Not To Freeze January 11 2017

If you missed it, our last blog post was all about how taking a few hours to meal prep can actually help you to save time, (if you missed it this sentence links to it). But in addition to cooked meals freezing well, individual ingredients freeze well too and by freezing them you can not only help to save the amount of food that is thrown to waste, but you can actually save yourself heaps of time in the future too!

5 Steps To Meal Prep December 23 2016

You only have to take one look at our product offering to know that we're big fans of frozen food.

Frozen food can not only help to lock in textures, flavours and nutrients when frozen correctly, but if you include the freezer as part of the range of tools used for meal preperation it can also help to free up future time, take away the pressure of last minute dinner decisions and help to create less waste.

Fish Pie Pastry Tart December 06 2016

Standing in front of the fridge/freezer repeatedly opening and closing the door wondering what to eat.
It's a place we've all been, hungry yet struggling for inspiration, which is where ready meals can come in really handy. Not just for when you want a quick fix for dinner, but when you want to make something new and flavoursome but need something that takes out the hours of hard work!

Are E Numbers Bad For You? November 14 2016

Are E-Numbers Bad For You?
It's a question we've all asked ourselves over the years yet still find ourselves pondering over. The reason? It's not necessarily a clear subject. You see, over the years E-Numbers have had their fair share of bad press and in some instances, it's been rightly so. But not all E-Numbers need to be avoided, and some of them you actually need.
For example E948? You quite literally could not survive without it.
The reason?

Cup Cakes (Literally!) October 25 2016

Cake is a wonderful thing.
Light fluffy sponge that serves as a blank canvas ready to be decorated with a thousand different flavour combinations. But baking cakes can take a lot of time, a lot of energy and leave a whole lot of mess...
And if there's one thing we'd all like less of, it's washing up!

Which is why we've put together a little cup cake recipe which requires no bowls or ovens. Just a handful of ingredients, a dash of chocolate, a microwave and your favourite (microwavable) cup!

Do Ready Meals Contain Too Much Salt? October 20 2016

Do a quick search on Google and up will pop hundreds of pages telling you that ready meals contain too much salt, that they are full of preservatives, lack flavour and are 'bad' for you. Yet if you were to search around many local supermarkets and convenience stores, you'd find meals which contradicted every one of those articles.

Free Meal Planning Guide Printable! October 11 2016

Planning in advance is a helpful thing.
We do it when we plan a day out, we do it when we go on holiday and *sometimes* we do it when we go to the supermarket. But there are be occasions where you don't plan for things, such as meal times, and it's not until your stood there nose-deep in the fridge realising you forgot to buy an ingredient, that you think to yourself "hmm, I probably should have thought about this a bit earlier!" 

Trust us, we have all been there! Choosing what to eat can be a bit of a nightmare, especially when you're hungry and have more than one mouth to feed. But by planning in advance you can save yourself the struggle of making hunger-induced decisions and avoid the hanger setting in... So we thought we'd help out and create a free printable to help make meal times a whole lot easier!

It's Thai'me For A New Product... September 30 2016

They say that variety is the spice of life, and like most people we're pretty big fans of life. So much so that we thought it was time to spice up your freezers and throw in a little heat next to your ice-cream stash. Metaphorically of course... Nobody likes melted ice-cream.

#ShareTheLove Update: July August 17 2016

#ShareTheLove is an initiative we started to ensure that for every Love Food Ready Meal sold, one is donated to a child in need, and each month we will be sharing some behind the scenes footage to keep you all updated!

Now if you saw last month's post (if you didn't you can catch up here!) You may remember that the school which Shonda (the charity our #ShareTheLove campaign currently supports!) was celebrating an end-of-exam fun day as a reward for the teachers and students for being so dedicated to their studies. But upon posting this month we decided to do something a little different and show you a typical day at school!

Ways To Reuse Your Ready Meal Tray: Plant Cress! July 29 2016

Plastic.
It's everywhere.
That convenient little substance which allows us to produce so many unique designs.
It's been revolutionary in it's capabilities in almost every industry, but it's also been a bit of a disaster for the environment, which is why we ensure that all of our plastic trays are recyclable. The thing is though is that recycling takes time and sometimes you just need a spare plastic tray to complete a project you've been working on...

Microwaves are pretty ace.
