Recently, I have started to eat healthy and got into bodybuilding. I see a lot of videos of people cooking in bulk for the week online; this would save time for me as I'm very busy in college and work. I was just wondering if I could freeze meats such as steak and chicken then take them out of the freezer and eat them cold when defrosted? I would like to have them to eat on the go.

That's perfectly fine, assuming the meats were cooked properly originally. If you look up people doing bento lunches, they use freezer staples a lot; often, if the item is small enough, it can be packed in a lunch still frozen and be defrosted by lunchtime. However, if you're talking about a whole steak or chicken breast, you'll want to stick it in the fridge overnight to let it defrost first.

  • Thanks for responding and yeah am cooking the likes of chicken breast and a few pieces of steak and thanks for the advice much appreciated
