When you’re on-the-go and time is of the essence, adding in all the required superfoods to your morning smoothie or everyday meal just doesn’t happen. Granted, you don’t want to waste precious snooze time to unravel the endless supply of green powders and energizing macca that’s waiting on the shelf, but when it comes to getting your daily nutrients and vitamins in, it’s nice to know things are getting easier.
Freeze dried or dehydrated products are making way in the supermarket aisle and are being praised for their convenience and ease of use. Much like any on-the-go powder, just add water and drink the nutrient dense packed powerhouse, wherever and whenever.
Long-lasting, nutrious and sometimes a real life-saver (hikers and backpackers usually carry around freeze dried food on long trips), freeze dried foods should always be in your pantry or purse for an on-the-go energy boost. We’ve selected a few that really pack the punch in terms of nutrients, taste, and overall goodness.
