Self-Care Starts in Your Freezer

It’s safe to say we’re all familiar with the concept of self-care, nourishing yourself so you can better care for yourself and others. When you think of self-care, it’s probably something like treating yourself to a massage, sleeping in a few extra minutes, pampering your skin, or recharging by putting on your favorite feel-good movie. Check, check, check, and check. Do you as easily think that self-care can also be how you nourish your body?

We’re here to say that a surprising place for self-care is right in your freezer. As believers in food as wellness, we think every grain matters, especially when it comes to the foods you eat. So, we set out to craft delicious, frozen, plant-based food inspired by beloved Indian classics; meals you likely already know and love, while openly embracing superfoods and timeless traditions.

By creating a collection of thoughtful, convenient, and nutritious meals, we are able to bring the delight of traditional ingredients, new flavors, and cultures to homes everywhere. Having these delicious meals that are better for you and our earth is sure to make you feel good in every way.

Read on for just a few of the reasons why we indulge in House of Kajaana meals as an act of self-care.

High-Quality Ingredients
All of our meals are made 100% with plants and are an exceptional blend of healthy fats, fiber, protein, vegetables, and spices with healing properties. When we fuel our body with whole foods that support it, we can enjoy crave-worthy flavors and feel good. By keeping your freezer stocked with your House of Kajaana favorites, you have a nutritional meal on standby.

Better Together
Inspired by the magical ability of Indian food to bring people together, we find that caring for yourself often includes caring for others, too. Few things fill the soul quite like spending time with family and friends, but one of those things is also sharing a meal with them. As a brand, as hosts, and as food lovers, we cherish the moments we spend with loved ones—bonding over a meal, celebrating tradition, and making new memories.

Nourishing Comfort
You know that feeling when you want a warm, hearty dish packed with flavor? Us, too. Each of our chef-crafted recipes embodies the feeling of comfort to deliver you joy with every bite. Elevate your next movie-night-in with House of Kajaana, because comfort comes from knowing you have a delicious meal always waiting for you.

More Time for What You Love
We live in a world where everyone is always busy. Whether it be with work, personal life, passion projects, or anything else that fills your calendar, we always wish for more hours in the day. When you have nutritional meals in your freezer, you can indulge in a moment of self-care that only takes 5 minutes to prepare. Now, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing you’re caring for your body while having more time to fill your cup.

While it’s clear that there is no right or wrong answer to how we each practice self-care, we can all share in the experience of bettering ourselves. Making space in our lives to continuously check in, nourish our bodies, and feed our souls is the truest act of self-care in our eyes.

As you seek out new experiences and embrace growth, remember that you can always find self-care in your freezer—delicious flavors, bright patterns, and feel-good comfort.
