I have been wanting to try doing freezer meals for awhile now, but for some reason they intimidate me! I needed someone to show me *exactly* what to do!
There are eight different plans you can choose from depending on your personal tastes and/or what your family likes to eat. They each have 5 meals each, that you will double so that when you are finished, you will have 10 meals in your freezer.
The Traditional meal plan has a mixture of types of meals. There might be chicken, beef, sausage, etc. in this meal plan.
The 20 meals plan is just that. It is a meal plan that will result in 20 meals once you are done! (Instead of the 10 meals that the rest of the plans provide.)
The Gluten Free, All Pork Chops, All Ground Beef, All Chicken, and Slow Cooker are pretty self-explanatory as well. The idea behind the all pork chops, ground beef, and chicken meal plans is that you use those when meat goes on sale at your store. So, if there is a sale on chicken breasts, then you can take advantage of that. Then just print off your All Chicken meal plan and you will have 10 meals ready to go!
The Clean Eats plan is for those that want to eat a bit healthier!
You can choose between two memberships, the basic and the premium (and further you can pay monthly or yearly for which ever one you choose)
We received the Premium Annual Membership and with that plan I have the option of making my own plan. I LOVE this ability. I can literally pick and choose recipes from all the different plans and make the ones I want.
I’ll be honest, I had a hard time finding recipes that fit within our narrow requirements for healthy eating. I’m sure that won’t be the case for everyone, so I wouldn’t worry about it.
They do have the “clean eating” meal plan, so you have lots of options there.
With the premium plan, I am also able to change the serving size and add recipes to a “favorites” section. I like that I can change the serving size, because the plans are automatically set to a serving size of 4. We have 5 people in our family, so I adjusted the serving size to be for 6 people. That way, if we have super hungry people, they can have plenty. And, if not, we will have leftovers for leftover night!
It really is not that much more for the premium plan, so I think it is worth it for those extra features.
Freezer to Table
This service is so easy to use. You figure out what plan or recipes you want to make, print off the instructions and recipes, and go.
The pages you print off include everything you will need to start your freezer cooking.
- Complete shopping list by recipe
- Complete shopping list by store section/category
- Meal prep day shopping list by recipe
- Meal prep day shopping list by store section/category
- Assembly prep instructions
- Meal assembly instructions
- Labels for your bags/trays
The complete shopping lists include the suggested side items listed with the recipe, whereas the meal prep day shopping lists include only the things you need for the parts of the recipe that will go in the freezer.
When I went shopping, I use the meal prep day list that was organized by store section/category. It made things so organized and easy to find quickly.
I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to put together the meals!
I ended up making my own meal plan and I only chose 3 recipes. I made the 5-ingredient chili, bacon and ranch chicken, and swirly taco pasta skillet.
The real prep I had to do was to choose the ground beef and cut up some onion. Other than that, it was just putting in spices, cans of food, cheese, etc.
The program says you can make 10 meals in under an hour. I think that’s probably possible after you have done it a few times. And, I’m not sure if they are including clean up in that time.
I made 6 meals in about 2 hours. That includes clean up time… rinsing out my cans for recycling, cleaning up my table and counters, etc.
I’m hoping that as I do this more often, I can cut that time in half.
I do love having meals ready to go in my freezer, that’s for sure! It takes so much stress out of dinner when we have a busy night coming up! Or if I am going to be gone during dinner, I know the kids and my husband will still have a healthy dinner, because my husband just has to warm something up!
This is definitely something that will be added in to my menu planning routine!
