Healthy Freezer Meal Cookbooks: My top picks for freezer meal cookbooks that focus on health food, whole food, vegan, and paleo recipes.
With our second baby on the way I’ve been trying to think of ways to make postpartum easier. Streamlining our menu for family meals could be a big help, and after a little brainstorming I decided that freezer meals would be the way to go.
The idea of grabbing something homemade from our freezer every night for dinner sounds pretty appealing, and the promise of cooking a whole month’s worth of meals in one shot sounds downright amazing. The one thing I didn’t like much about freezer meals was that most of the recipes and resources I found didn’t suit my taste. It seemed like they were all built around ground beef, heaps of cheese, and ooey-gooey simmering sauces.
I knew I couldn’t be the only veggie-loving person out there looking for freezer meal recipes, so I started looking for healthy freezer meal cookbooks. It turns out that I was right. There are tons of folks out there cooking ahead with healthy diets in mind. I’ve collected my favorite healthy freezer meal cookbook recipes below for you to check out.
