Are Ready Meals bad for you?

Off-the-shelf ready meals may seem like a quick fix for busy individuals, but beneath their convenience lies a plethora of hidden health risks.


Convenience often trumps health when it comes to meal choices. Off-the-shelf ready meals may seem like a quick fix for busy individuals, but beneath their convenience lies a plethora of hidden health risks. In this blog, we’ll explore why off-the-shelf ready meals could be bad for you and introduce a healthier alternative: I’m So Good’s fresh, frozen meals delivered right to your door.


Hidden Health Risks of Off-the-Shelf Ready Meals

High Levels of Preservatives

Off-the-shelf ready meals often contain high levels of preservatives to extend their shelf life. These additives can have negative effects on your health, including increased risk of heart disease and other chronic conditions.

Excessive Sodium Content

Ready meals are notorious for their high sodium content, which is used to enhance flavour and prolong shelf life. Consuming too much sodium can lead to high blood pressure, stroke, and other health issues.

Lack of Nutritional Value

Many off-the-shelf ready meals lack essential nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, and fibre. Instead, they are often loaded with unhealthy fats, sugars, and empty calories, contributing to poor overall nutrition.

Processed Ingredients

Ready meals are typically made with processed ingredients, which have been stripped of their natural nutrients and fibre during manufacturing. These highly processed foods offer little nutritional benefit and can contribute to weight gain and digestive issues.
