Healthy Crockpot Freezer Meals
Have a short window of time on the weekend? Take a look at these make-ahead meals to make the most of your week nights. These Easy Healthy Crockpot Freezer Meals can be prepped in a short period of time and saved for busier night. In order to get the most out of your make ahead, freeze and cook later recipes, it’s important to cook in bulk. You can prep many of these recipes at once (in fact, some of these recipes go to landing pages of many recipes) or you can quadruple any of the recipes and split them up in the the freezer so you have four freezer bags of the same recipe.
The most important thing you can do with your freezer bags is, first, use freezer bags. Don’t think I am joking. More often than not I have picked up a regular Ziploc and ruined the prep. Also, label your meal. (These deep freezer labels are great!) What is it? How much does it serve and the date of when you prepped it – so very important. Organize your deep freezer so you can keep track of newest to the oldest.
Kitchen Hack: When preparing freezer meals, I highly recommend a freezer bag holder stand. This cooking gadget is an extra set of hands allowing you to clip the top of your freezer bags into a standing, upright position while you fill them.
