Why freeze dried foods
1-Freeze dried foods retain 97% of their nutritional value.
2-You can make easy, quick and hot meals with just hot water.
3-When stored properly freeze dried foods have a shelf life of 25 years.
4-Food will reconstitute *mostly* back to its original state. I say “mostly” because some foods might not reconstitute totally normal. A good rule of thumb is if you were to freeze something and thaw it, that is what it will reconstitute as. So, chicken when frozen and thawed basically goes back to normal. Spinach on the other hand when frozen and thawed looks wilted. That’s what it will look like when reconstituted.
5-They are lightweight and versatile.
I love Nutristore for many reasons.
First: Their foods are good quality foods. You won’t find their meals with unneeded fillers or preservatives.
Second: The meals aren’t just carbs and sauce like you see in so many other company’s meals.
Third: They are a solid company that truly cares. I reached out to Nutristore when I first reached 20,000 followers and I asked them if they wanted to join my giveaway. They responded and gave away 3 cans of food to my giveaway. Fast forward almost a year, I hadn’t worked with them again, and I ended up on bedrest for preterm labor with my baby I posted something about it on my Instagram page, and the next thing I knew I had a box of 4 freeze-dried meals sent to my house to help us out. No strings attached, just a company looking out for those in need. I will always support companies that support and care for other people.
Another example of Nutristore caring is in this story here about Jayme Linker. Jayme is an extreme athlete who rowed 3,000 miles across the Atlantic. Jayme is an athlete who has struggled with anorexia and other physical problems due to the anorexia. She has to be very careful about what she puts into her body. She created meals with Nutristore freeze-dried foods and during the whole course of rowing 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean she only lost 8 pounds.

Nutristore Special of the month
If you want to stock up on veggies this is the bundle to do it with! With corn, peas, potatoes, green beans, butternut squash, and broccoli this has a little bit of everything.
How would I use these?
I would use them the same way I would use any frozen vegetables. Throw them in soups, stews, and casseroles. Another option would be to rehydrate them and then fry them up in a pan with some oil, salt, garlic and onion powder.
My Favorite Nutristore Foods
Chicken Alfredo: Sooo good! I absolutely love this meal. In fact when my husband Justin first tried it he said that it was the best chicken alfredo he has ever had and made himself a second bowl.
Beef Pasta Marinara: This is my personal favorite and what I make when I’m hungry and need a quick meal.
Cheddar Cheese: If your family is anything like ours than cheese is a staple. Freeze dried cheese is a little more prep work with reconstitution than the meals are, but once it reconstitutes it tastes and melts like normal cheese.
