At Green Isle, we are committed to helping households reduce food waste. In association with Smart Store Cooking, we have created a Five Day Smart Meal Planner which we hope will inspire your weekly meal plan. The recipes use interchangeable core ingredients as well a variety of wholesome Green Isle frozen vegetables, making meal planning simple.

Whether you cook all five recipes one day after the next, or choose just two, this smart guide will guarantee you enjoy delicious meals on a regular basis. Simply stock up with the list of store cupboard and freezer essentials, and then you only need to buy a few additional items for the recipes you plan to cook.

All of the recipes are quick and easy to prepare and cook and serve four people. If cooking for less, why not freeze the balance in portions, remembering to date and label each container. This is a great way to ensure you spend less time cooking during a busy week and will also help you to budget.

The Green Isle Five Day Smart Meal Planner will help you to plan, shop and cook with ease, creating nutritious home cooked meals, packed with Green Isle frozen goodness
