If you’ve ever struggled with making healthy meals for your family or yourself, then you are not alone!

We all strive to balance hectic schedules, playdates, work, life, and little league with our health and the health of our kids. For busy individuals juggling various responsibilities, meal preparation in advance can be a game-changer. By dedicating a small amount of time each week to plan and cook meals ahead, not only can they save money on dining out, but also allocate those savings towards building an emergency fund

But you can’t do it all – at least not all at once.

That’s why freezer cooking has become such a popular meal prep day method.

In just a few hours you can multi-task and cook multiple meals and have breakfast, lunch, and dinner covered for the month.
