With a baby coming sooner rather than later, I wanted to make sure I had some healthy meal options for the freezer. Lord knows I’m not cooking for a bit, and my husband probably won’t be feeling up to it either! We are blessed with a great church family who have already told us they’ll be setting up a meal train (woot woot!), but I wanted to have some options for our freezer, as well.
- Cauliflower crust pizza–we love the CauliPower brand! It’s easy, it’s pizza, my kiddo will eat it without fighting us on it, and it makes me feel better than other frozen pizzas.
- These blueberry muffins–now that we know my kiddo is allergic to tree nuts, we don’t use almond flour and just sub in gluten free flour. These muffins are healthy and filling as a breakfast or a quick snack.
- Gluten free waffles–we love these blueberry waffles and they work for breakfast or a quick dinner
- Homemade burger buns–these aren’t “healthy” per se, but they taste amazing, I know what’s in them, and we can use them for all kinds of sandwiches
- Tomato sauce–yes I use canned sauce too, but this sauce is flavorful and perfect for our favorite sloppy joes!
- Black bean soup–you can make a batch, and freeze in individual servings or in servings of 2-4. This is true for any soup!
- Italian Pork Roast–this is a recipe I’ll prep beforehand, put in the freezer, and then dump into the crockpot to eat that night.
- Maple Mustard Chicken and Potatoes–again, prep beforehand, keep in freezer, then cook in crockpot.
- Chicken Fajitas–prep, freezer, crockpot. Sensing a theme here?
- There are 3 weeks worth of slow cooker recipes on this blog!
If you prep meals ahead of time to cook in the crockpot later, be sure you clearly write on the baggie to label what the meal is, how long it needs to cook, and when you prepped the meal. Those meals are good in the freezer for 3 months.
What are your go-to freezer staples? I’d love to get a few more ideas before it’s baby time!
