Meal Prep Made Easy: How Your Freezer Can Save You Time and Money

Let’s talk about a powerhouse tool in your kitchen: your freezer! 


It can be a HUGE asset when it comes to meal planning, prepping, and storage…


EVEN if you’re one of those people who doesn’t like leftovers!


Here are 4 ways you can use your freezer to make healthy eating even easier.


4 Clean-Eating Freezer Tips:


1. Make Smoothie Packs.

  • Place your favorite smoothie ingredients in a freezer bag and pop it into the freezer. 
  • When you're ready for a smoothie, just grab a pack, add liquid, protein powder, and any other add-ins you want, and blend!


2. Pre-Portioned Protein Packs. 

  • If you live in a small household, this tip is a biggie because it’ll help you save money, avoid waste, and always be ready for a healthy meal. 
  • Divide chicken, fish, or tofu into single servings and freeze them.
  • Just reheat it when you’re ready to eat! 
  • If you have a vacuum sealer, this is a great way to put it to use.


3. Homemade Soup & Stew Blocks.

  • Leftover soup or stew? Pour it into muffin tins and freeze. 
  • Once solid, pop them out and place them in freezer bags.
  • On busy days, this makes for the perfect homemade “heat and serve” meal.


4. Freeze Cooked Whole Grains. 

  • Cook grains like brown rice or quinoa in bulk and then freeze them in portions — the muffin tin idea works great here, too. 
  • They reheat beautifully and help with portion control.


One of the biggest stumbling blocks when it comes to using your freezer is forgetting what’s in there! 


Pro Tip 1: Label everything with the date and contents — even the items you’re sure you’ll remember later.

Pro Tip 2: Keep an inventory list outside your freezer. This way, you know what's inside without opening the door and letting the cold air escape.


Not only will these hacks help you keep healthy food on hand, but they'll also make meal prep a ton easier!
