I know first hand that providing nutritious, real-food meals for your family can sometimes prove to be a challenge. For one thing, buying organic, grass-fed, pastured, (aka: blessed by God himself) food… can admittedly be more expensive. The other challenge is that you pretty much have to feed your people like Every.Single.Day… I mean, didn't I JUST feed you?! Gaahhh….

One of my favorite ways to cut down on money & time is by stocking up on pre-prepped (real food) healthy freezer meals I can have at the ready for crazy weeknights, or, you know, whenever I just don't feel like cooking. I save money by buying meats and other ingredients in bulk, which helps keep our food budget in check. And, honestly, we end up eating Much better by cutting down on those days when I just cannot even fathom having to cut up a vegetable or forgot to leave the meat to thaw out, and end up pulling the 80/20 rule again (I know I'm not alone here).

Having two or three days a month to cook and prep meals for the freezer is WAY better than slaving away in the kitchen everyday, plus, your kitchen stays cleaner since you don't have to keep doing dishes every night. Winning.

Getting the whole freezer-meal-planning thing down can take a little time, so go easy on yourself at first. Choosing meals that are tried & true, good for freezing, and that your family will actually eat is a must since you don't want food (or precious prep time) to go to waste.

I personally enjoy cooking sometimes (…but don't get crazy), so spending a day in the kitchen really isn't so bad for me… and, an even more fun and time-efficient, cost-effective way to do it is to have a Freezer Prep Party with a few friends.

As for deciding what to make, that's one of my favorite parts… dreaming of being super-mom by serving my family #allthehealthythings while pouring over tons of deliciously photographed food is hugely motivating and just plain fun. If you're not quite sure where to start, no worries, I've compiled a list of some of my fave healthy freezer meals recipes to get you started on your freezer-prepping journey. Enjoy!

Breakfast

Soups & Stews

Entrees & Meat

Casseroles

*I usually prepare the casseroles and leave about 15-20 minutes left of cooking time prior to freezing, and finish cooking on the day of serving.

Freezer Crockpot Meals (most would also work well for the Instant Pot)

*Go ahead and brown meat if need be for meals that require that prior to putting in the crockpot.

Snacks, Sides & Extras

Desserts

*I mean, 'cause sometimes you need dessert on the ready… and sometimes Quinoa Carrot Cupcakes count for a meal… right?

  1. I’m a little clueless on this “bag freezer meal” idea… most recipes gives you the instructions for cooking it, if I just wanna freeze them, do I just put all ingredients on a back and then put on crock pot? (the ones that are crock pot like, obviously not a lasagna :D)

    1. Most of the recipes yes! Some may call for some prep before freezing… (cooking ground beef, sautéing veggies, etc), but most of the crock-pot (or Instant Pot) version recipes are just dump in a bag, freeze, then toss it in the pot when you’re ready to cook! Those are my favorite kinds 🙂
