Having prepared meals in my freezer saves me more often than I can tell you. When I don’t have meals in the freezer, take-out pizza and other unhealthy options rule. Take a few extra minutes when preparing a meal and double the recipe. Put one in the freezer, and voila! Another meal for a busy day with minimal effort = drive through avoided!

Unfortunately, even thought I KNOW that freezer meals save me big, I’ve gotten off the bandwagon in the last year and have been pretty lazy in the kitchen. This January, I’m taking it back. Staring this week, I will double at least ONE recipe and put at least ONE meal a week into my freezer. Here are the recipes I’m considering this first week in January.
