Make A Month of Meals In One Day

Once A Month Mom helps you fill your freezer by creating monthly menus. They feature menus filled with breakfast, lunch, dinner items made with seasonal ingredients to fit all sorts of diets including Whole Foods, Paleo, Vegetarian, and Gluten and Dairy Free. Other than the chopping, cooking, wrapping, all of the work is done for you. They put out new menus with new recipes each month, they test out all of the recipes several times to figure out how to best adapt them for the freezer, and each of the menus includes Recipe Cards (with initial cooking instructions, freezing and wrapping instructions, and defrosting and reheating instructions), a Grocery List, Instructions, and Labels. All of these are created using spreadsheets and you plug in the number of people you want to cook for, and all of the recipe cards, instructions, chopping lists, grocery lists, etc, are updated with the correct amounts. You pay $8 for this and save yourself hours of time.

Cooking Light Magazine has selected their picks¬†for the best freezer-friendly recipes. Preparing double or even triple recipes and freezing portions for later means you don’t have to cook every night to have a delicious and nutritious meal on the table. And some food is better suited to freezing and reheating than others. For example, casseroles, soups, chilis, and meat loaf all stand up to the freezer well and most cooked dishes will keep for two to three months in the freezer.

Rachel Ray Magazine has a genius make-ahead meal plan. Spend a single day in the kitchen cooking meats, veggies, rice and sauce and you have the building blocks for almost a month’s worth of easy dinner recipes. Get all the recipes here, then pick any or all of the ones you like to create a customizable grocery list.
