I’m sure friends and family will be delivering meals when they come to visit your baby, but I still think it’s nice to be stocked up on your own home cooked meals. This way you know you have meals you and your family like on hand, plus frozen food lasts a LONG time, so the more the merrier! Keep reading and get ready to stock that freezer!
Freezer Oatmeal Cups. This easy make ahead meal is tasty, healthy, and fun! You can customize these with the specific toppings of your choice. When you’re ready to eat them in the morning, pop them out, microwave them, and add a splash of milk if you’d like!
Berry Green Smoothie. Here’s a recipe for a delicious and nutritious smoothie that you can prep, freeze, and then make when you’re ready to drink it!
Cheese, Vegetable, And Egg Muffins. Veggie egg muffins are always my go-to because I love that you can add all your favorite vegetables to them. These ones are only 100 calories each making them a healthy breakfast option for those counting calories. The best part is that they freeze really well in an air tight container!
Waffles. Who doesn’t love waffles? And did you know they are one of the easiest things to freeze? These are gluten free AND vegan and way better than the Eggo waffles we’re all used to buying!
Shredded Beef Enchiladas. These enchiladas are so easy. The crock pot does almost all of the work for you. If you want to freeze them, just wrap them up and then thaw them out 24 hours before dinner time!
Breakfast Burritos. This recipe calls these delicious ham, egg, and green chili burritos breakfast burritos but I say breakfast burritos are good for any meal of the day! Add in any extras you might want, freeze, and eat whenever you please!
Pasta Lunch Packets. This is such a fabulous idea for doing all of the prep work for your pasta so it’s ready to go and all portioned out when you want to eat it. Not only that, each packet of pasta is only 24 cents! What a delicious and cheap meal for those of us who still want something homemade and are on a budget!
Black Bean Soup. This delicious and hearty black bean soup only has five ingredients. You can whip this up quickly, it’s healthy, and it’s packed full of flavor and spices. Soups freeze fabulously so after you sample some, store it in your freezer and thaw it out when you’re ready to devour the rest.
Cookie Dough Freezer Fudge. They had me at cookie dough and then they went and added fudge to it. This freezer fudge is gluten free and delicious! Considering that it has chickpeas and dates, I’d say it’s on the verge of being pretty healthy for you too!
Banana Bites. This is the easiest recipe, your little ones will be able to practically make them themselves, and they will taste SO good! Freeze them and eat one or five at a time.
