I’ve never tried freezer cooking – how do I even get started?
I’m so happy you’re ready to try something new! Freezer cooking is an excellent technique because it really can make your life so much easier. I’m not just saying that because it sounds good. I’m saying that because it’s TRUE.
However, if you’re not ready to dive into the whole program yet, I’d love to teach you a little more about it in my free freezer cooking 101 workshop. I’ll send you a free sample meal plan of what we offer in the monthly membership, too. You can sign up for the online video workshop and download the free sample plan here.
Seriously, how do I fit freezer cooking into my busy life?
Learn how freezer meals can help you save TONS of time, and how a freezer meal prep session fits into your schedule.
First, I need you to understand this.
You reap what you sow.
You sow a few freezer meals, then you’ll reap oodles of time and less mental anguish over the next 2 weeks, when you don’t have to worry about dinner.
If you could – for just a minute – imagine that. Imagine not having to stress about the drive thru total again, or how much food you’ve wasted this year because it went uncooked and spoiled. Imagine being able to pull food from the freezer and not have to think about cooking. You just have to reheat it and maybe prepare some side dishes to go along with it.
Second, and this is important.
Mark your calendar.
Yes, like write it onto your calendar. And when you do, I suggest that you plan to shop one day/afternoon/evening. And then prepare your meals the next day. (It’s just easier and smoother when you do it this way.)
Third, you’ve just got to do it.
Just make 10 meals. Or even 4 or 6. Just prep them and put them into the freezer.
And then see for yourself how wonderful having “backup” waiting for you in the freezer really is!

I don’t have a huge freezer – will I be able to fit ALL THAT FOOD?
OK, go to your freezer right now. Seriously, I’ll wait here. Back yet? 😉
If you saw a box of waffles and a Costco-sized bag of frozen chicken nuggets, you’ve got room for these ten meals.
MyFreezEasy meals are compact. And we recommend that you make 10 meals at a time.
We also recommend “flat freezing” the bags with a piece of parchment or wax paper between the bags to prevent bags from sticking together or tearing.
Pictured below is the bottom half of a regular fridge freezer. Above is a shelf for more food and to the right is the other half. There is also some space behind these baggies.
So you might have to dig deep and find your inner-Tetris player and get creative with how you stack your meals with the other ingredients in your freezer.
I already have frozen meat in my freezer, can I use it for my freezer meals?
The only tricky thing about using already frozen chicken would be that you don’t want it to warm up much and then re-freeze it…that’s a food safety no-no. BUT, I think it could be done if you were strategic and smart about keeping that chicken frozen.
What I would do is get everything chopped and sauces made up.
Then go one recipe at a time and prepare the 2 bags for each recipe, put them right into the freezer, then move onto the next.
So add frozen chicken to bag for 2 meals, add sauce or veggies and return to the freezer immediately. Then repeat for next 2 bags.
That way the chicken won’t have an opportunity to thaw and you can get the ingredients added with it to cook later.
