I love the idea of making meals a week or month ahead of time so all you have to do is pull them out, especially while following a semi-clean eating diet where meal prep can sometimes take longer (no pre-packaged meals for us!) but of course to have those freezer meals requires that I actually take the time to plan and then MAKE them...that's where my problem comes in! I am lazy! I say "next Sunday I am going to do this" then I don't & end up kicking my butt all week for not doing it!
So I've found a solution that helps cut down on some time for me throughout the week but doesn't require an all day kitchen marathon! I've started cooking and freezing certain parts of a meal (the meats usually) ahead of time so that all I have to do is pull it out and throw together the rest.
After my shopping trip (usually on Sunday) I will cook up all the ground beef and chicken I have purchased, then add in any seasonings I need for the meals I have planned or think I might want to use at some point (like taco seasoning, sloppy joe, etc.) then separate into freezing containers or Ziploc bags! This has been working so great and saves me some time at least in the kitchen each week!
