MOVING. That has been my entire life since early in the morn on Friday. Boy, is moving a lot of work. It’s exciting, frustrating, exhilarating, consuming, and exhausting. But I’m happy to announce that Zach and I are officially happy homeowners! Hooray!!
I’ve had ZERO time to cook. Which is why I made sure to plan for an abundance of freezer meals to quickly heat up during this hectic time. On more than one occasion, Zach and I paused unpacking and realized we had forgotten to eat. FORGOTTEN to eat. That’s very unlike me. Thank goodness for freezer meals, and specifically healthy, real food meals (like my Detox Chicken and Vegetable Soup) that helped us regain our energy and not make us feel sluggish and exhausted.
And even when there isn’t something extremely hectic happening in my life, I usually make sure to at least have a few things in the freezer waiting for that time I just DON’T want to cook. Having back-up meals in your freezer for emergencies can help you keep your healthy eating and cooking goals without resorting to unhealthy or expensive take-out. This means you won’t be even a little bit tempted by the local fried chicken place as a dinner option (OK FINE, we caved and got it once this weekend. #noregrets).
Did you know that I have an entire recipe section devoted to meals you can make ahead / freeze? You should check it out. But there are so many other awesome freezer recipes out there in the world of the Internet, so I made a fun list.
Here are 20 of my favorites from Bowl of Delicious and other awesome food blogs!
