  2. Delivering great food, whatever the weather

    Our dedicated drivers have been battling the unseasonable weather conditions all over the country to get your Oakhouse meals and desserts out to you this week.  We’ve seen heavy snow in lots of places, from Croydon to East Anglia, and drivers like Rob from our North West branch have been facing motorways at a standstill and difficult driving conditions. Despite the disruption, our drivers are working hard to get to everyone and to make sure that most of our deliveries are made as close to our usual times as possible. If we’re running behind with deliveries we’ll do our best to keep everyone informed about what is happening. If you’d like some more information about deliveries in your area, you can find and contact your local branch here.

  3. Spice up your menu - and get healthy too

    A warming curry can hit the spot whatever the weather, but there’s another great reason to try something with a little spice. From soothing joint pain to easing indigestion, we look at the surprising health benefits thought to be behind some of our favourite spices. They are the secret behind some of our most popular ready meals, from curries and Mediterranean classics to warming desserts. But far from simply adding mouth-watering flavours, these small yet powerful seasonings are believed to be good for us, too.

  6. Why Is It Important To Eat Breakfast?

    Breakfast is often said to be the most important meal of the day. However, it’s the meal we are most likely to skip... Breakfast breaks your overnight fast. Hence it’s really important to have a good breakfast as this kick starts your metabolism, warms you up, boosts your concentration, increases energy levels and maintains steady blood sugar. Breakfast can also expand the range of nutrients in your diet and help you reach your 5-a-day.

  7. Winter Specials Range

    During winter it is often more difficult to get out and about due to poor weather – it’s colder and can often bring ice, snow and even floods. A hot meal and a hot drink helps to keep you warm especially over the colder months. Age UK recommends you have at least one hot meal each day. At Oakhouse Foods, we provide a full range of meals and groceries that can be delivered straight to your door by our friendly delivery drivers, making this difficult time of year easier and saving you time.

  8. Eating For Overall Good Health

    Eating well for good health and staying fit are important no matter what your age. Eating well means you’re more likely to feel healthier, stay active for longer and protect yourself against illness. It’s never too late to start eating healthily, and a healthy diet doesn’t have to be boring or expensive. It also doesn’t mean going without your favourite treats, although it may mean eating them less often or in smaller portions. As you grow older, your metabolism slows down, so you need fewer calories than before. Your body also needs more of certain nutrients. That means it’s more important than ever to choose foods that give you the best nutritional value. Oakhouse Foods insist on wholesome ingredients and because all our dishes are freshly frozen they are full of goodness, so you can eat our meals with confidence.
