What You'll Make in Prep Session 1

Description: Looking for kid-friendly recipes? You’ve come to the right Freezer Prep Session. These meals have been staples in our homes for years, as well as some of the most popular ones on our blog.

FIESTA LIME CHICKEN NACHOS (X2)

A simple, lime-infused marinade for chicken breasts produces flavorful and moist shredded chicken with a hint of heat. Use it atop baked nachos, which come together in just minutes.

HONEY BOURBON CHICKEN (X2)

A little sweet and a little spicy, this chicken recipe is BIG on flavor and takes just minutes to throw together. While the bourbon does lend a complex taste that’s hard to replicate, you can replace it with chicken broth/stock and still get good results.

COOK WITH POLLY & RACHEL

Every prep session comes with a FREE video tutorial.

YES. FREE.

Most meal prep services charge for video access. Not 1 Hour Freezer Prep!

You'll learn so much AND have a lot of fun!

WHAT MAKES 1 HOUR FREEZER PREP DIFFERENT THAN OTHER MEAL PREP SERVICES?

VIDEO TUTORIALS

We are the only service that provides high quality, FREE video tutorials for every prep session.

WELL TESTED RECIPES

Every recipe is DELICIOUS. They have been tested multiple times by us and a recipe testing team.

SUPER SUPPORTIVE COMMUNITY

Our Freezer Foodies Facebook Group is a great place to ask questions, share recipe ideas, and learn from others.

SO MANY OPTIONS

We have a growing library of prep sessions for you to pick and choose from. We also provide ways to mix up the recipes!

Each prep session is a 13+ page digital download to use directly on your device or to print.

Here is a close-up look at all of the features in a prep session.

FAQ

  • How do I get all of these products after purchase?

You will be immediately emailed the 1 Hour Freezer Prep digital files in a PDF format that you can save to your device and print. Use it directly on your tablet, phone, laptop, or desktop as an interactive PDF file and/or print it off. Some of our customers suggest laminating the prep sessions and placing them in a binder to have on hand.

In a follow up email, you will receive an invite to our "Freezer Foodies" Facebook group and a link to download the Freezer Cooking Quick Start Guide e-book.

  • Do you have an affiliate program?

Yes! If you are interested in becoming an affiliate, please hop over to the link below to learn more about our Affiliate Program.

Thriving Home Affiliate Information
  • How much money does a prep session save?

A lot! But, don’t take our word for it. Here’s what Forbes.com says about your savings, “It is almost five times more expensive to order delivery from a restaurant  than it is to cook at home. And if you’re using a meal kit service as a shortcut to a home cooked meal, it’s a bit more affordable, but still almost three times as expensive as cooking from scratch.”

When you have a meal prepped and ready to go, you’ll find yourself opting to eat at home more than ever! Not only that, you’ll buy ingredients in bulk and look for ones on sale, saving you even more.  

  • Are the recipes healthy?

These meals are much healthier for your family than eating out or buying prepackaged food at the store. That’s because:

  • We strive to cook with as many whole food ingredients as possible. This means, for the most part, we cut out processed junk that includes yucky preservatives, additives, excess sodium, and excess sugar.
  • John Hopkins study shows that people who cook their own food and eat at home regularly consume fewer calories, fat, and sugar than those who don’t. Without changing anything other than cooking at home from scratch, you WILL be eating a healthier diet!
  • When you cook at home, you’re in charge of what goes into your food. Feel free to cut back on fat, sugar, or sodium if you want.  
  • Do you provide gluten-free or dairy-free options?

You bet. We have included options on every recipe possible (with just a few exceptions) to make them either gluten-free or dairy-free, if they aren’t already.

You can find all the nutrition facts for our recipes here.

  • How many servings are in each freezer meal I prepare?

Each freezer meal yields 4-6 servings and sometimes more. It’s easy to increase the number of servings if you add some extra veggies or meat, though.  

  • Do the recipes actually taste good after freezing?

The recipes in our prep plans are our “best of the best” and ones that all ages enjoy.

After freezer cooking for over a decade each, we have a high standard of what a great freezer meal is. These meals aren’t just good; they TASTE FRESH. We have personally created, taste tested, and tweaked hundreds of freezer meals over the years. This collection of recipes are delicious enough to make again and again.  

  • Do the meals have to be frozen or can I eat them right after I prep them?

Every meal can be frozen for later or enjoyed fresh now!

If you want to eat a meal fresh (rather than freeze it), you’ll find the cooking instructions in the individual recipes. We also made a note of fresh ingredients you’ll need on hand, so you know how to cook it from fresh.

So, feel free to throw several in the refrigerator to use in the next few days and the rest in the freezer for a later date.  

  • Do I have to print it out or will the prep session work from my phone/computer?

It’s totally up to you! We personally find it easier to have the session printed out, but it’s definitely not required. If you want to save on printing, you could just print the labels and use your device for everything else.

We’ve also designed this in a way that it works fine for a black and white printer.  

  • How are the prep sessions different than what you share in your cookbooks and website?

Nowhere else do we have a resource like this--one that includes step-by-step instructions to stock your freezer with multiple meals at once, a complete shopping list for all recipes, and completed printable freezer labels. Everything is neatly designed for you to print and use again and again.

We’ve also had a testing team meticulously work through our sessions to make sure every step makes sense and that we’ve organized all of the information in the best way possible.

  • What kitchen equipment do I need to make these meals?

Every prep session has a specific equipment list, but here are some of the frequently asked questions we get.

What cooking methods do you use? You'll cook most of your meals on the stovetop or in the oven. However, we do have some recipes specifically for the slow cooker or a grill. For slow cooker recipes, we always link to an Instant Pot version and sometimes a stove/oven option. For grilling recipes, we link to a stove/oven option.

What do I store the meals in? For freezer meal storage, we mainly recommend using BPA-free, snap top (NOT zip top) 1 gallon freezer bags . For some recipes, you'll need glass or metal 8x8 or 9x9 inch square casserole dishes. You can see all our equipment recommendations in our Amazon Store here.

Do I need a deep freezer? You do not need a deep freezer for these prep sessions, although it's helpful to invest in a secondary freezer eventually if you want to stockpile meals for your family. A deep freezer will keep meals frozen solid longer, which means your meals will last longer in the freezer (6+ months). A regular freezer works fine (up to 3 months is optimal storage time) as long as you keep it at 0°F and store your meals in the back.


HAPPY BELLIES GUARANTEED!

We're so confident you'll love our prep plans that we'll refund your money if you aren't satisfied.
