Then I started to cook and freeze. And forgot about removing them from the freezer to thaw on the fridge overnight. And when I remember, the food didn’t taste that fresh. Because, well, I cooked and froze them.
1 | Choose the recipes
Are you the type of person that doesn’t like to eat the same thing every day? Then you have to think about 7 meals per week, or 5 if you want to eat out on weekends.
Every recipe I choose must be enough for me and my husband eat for 2 days. And the recipes I pick are the main course, the meat.
Also, I have a standing freezer but the drawers are not big, so I can’t make 30 meals to freeze.
Make a list of all the ingredients, then make a shopping list and go buy the ingredients.
2 | Choose your containers
I also like to use Ziplocs because it’s a nice way to marinate a meat without touching anything. Just throw the ingredients in the bag, close it and shake it.
(Keep in mind that spices accentuate their flavor while frozen)

I noticed that if I mix the salad, the produce goes bad earlier than if each one has its own container. I was at the Superstore last year and I found this container that makes vegetables, legumes, and berries last longer. It’s amazing🤩. I found a similar one, same brand here.
