Ready Meals vs Cooking Yourself From Scratch

Added 624 days ago. 1 November 2022

Cooking from scratch is enjoyable for some, good for the soul, as well as the tummy. However, you might be looking for a more convenient option without the need to shop, chop or wash up each time.

It is often more convenient to consider a meal delivery service, with a wide choice of tasty frozen ready meals, delivered direct to your door.

We’ve been summing up the benefits of ready meals versus home cooking, so you can find a balance that’s right for you.

The Grocery Shop 

Whether you’re looking for inspiration, or ready to shop with your detailed list of ingredients, you will need to navigate those grocery isles with precision – collecting everything from shallots and salmon, to vanilla extract and custard – to whip up a tasty meal and delicious pudding this evening!

When cooking from scratch, making time to research and plan your kitchen necessities are key to a smooth cooking experience. Before you pop on your apron, make sure your fridge is stocked, so you can master your culinary creation without a hitch.

Understanding Ingredients

It’s really important to know your food. So, it’s reassuring to know our meals contain none of the following:
• ✗ Artificial Flavours 
• ✗ Artificial Colours 
• ✗ HVOs (Hydrogenated Vegetable Oils) 
• ✗ GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms).


It takes a lot of concentration and organisation to prepare a meal from scratch, from preparing the ingredients, to scheduling cooking times and cleaning up pots and pans in the process.
The benefit of choosing a ready meal often boils down to saving you time. If the cooking process is daunting for you, leave the preparation and delivery of your meal with our expert team - you’re in safe hands.
