Top 20 Favorite Freezer Meals

Top 20 Favorite Freezer Meals: These healthy and delicious freezer meals will save you time, money, and make eating healthy meals at home possible!

With the start of school just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to stock our freezers with healthy pre-made breakfast options and easy weeknight dinners. Whether or not you throw a Freezer Party with friends or spend an afternoon cooking ahead, you’ll be so glad you spent some concentrated time prepping a few of these healthy and delicious freezer meals.

What kind of containers do you store freezer meals in?

We highly recommend using a BPA-free container or dish. While it may be easier to buy the disposable Glad ovenware containers, it really makes sense to stock up on some quality, safe dishes that you can bake AND store in. After searching long and hard, I highly recommend using these containers from MightyNest.

A few reasons I like these:

  1. Glass is a natural, non-porous material.
  2. Glass cookware doubles as food storageware.
  3. Glass is easy to clean and dishwasher safe.
  4. The clear lid allows easy visibility to your food.
  5. Because they are oven and microwave proof, you can cook, heat, and store your food all in one dish.
  6. Flat top allows for easy stacking.
  7. They are VERY affordable.
