Posted by admin on

Healthy freezer meals that taste incredible do exist! Here are 48 of my favorite recipes that can be made in the slow cooker, instant pot, oven, or even in a skillet. These meals have been a lifesaver for me with low-calorie and low-carb recipes. They are perfect for breakfasts, lunches, and dinners.

4 different ideas for healthy freezer meals including chicken, pork, muffins, and soup.

Eating healthier is a top priority for me.

That’s why I pulled together a bunch of my favorite freezer meals including low-calorie and low-carb recipes.

With freezer meals, you not only save money and time, but you are also eating better with less work.

And they actually taste good. Seriously.

There are several reasons why these recipes are one’s you’ll love.

  • They are homemade freezer meals made with real food ingredients
  • They are designed to be made in your slow cooker, instant pot, oven and even your stovetop!
  • Many are gluten free recipes and several of them are also low carb freezer meals.
  • Each healthy freezer crockpot meal is packed with loads of nutrition , variety and flavor.
  • These recipes have all been tasted by me and they are all delicious!


How Long Are Freezer Meals Good For? When food is kept at or below 32°F (0°C), bacteria cannot grow. So, food stored that cold will not spoil and will be safe to eat indefinitely. However, after a time (usually 4 to 6 months) the quality of your food may start to diminish and it might affect the taste and texture of the meal. For the freshest taste try and use up your freezer meals within 4-6 months.

What is the Best Way to Prepare & Freeze Freezer Meals? The most budget-friendly option is to use a quality freezer-safe plastic bag. Label the bag first, add in your ingredients then seal the freezer meal bag, pressing down to remove as much air as possible to avoid freezer burn.

Do You Have to Thaw Freezer Meals? If your recipe has raw meat or poultry in it then YES you should thaw the freezer meal first. This is to keep your food from growing bacteria as it slowly heats up according to the USDA Food Safety & Inspection. But if you don’t have raw meat you can add frozen food to your crockpot or your instant pot. I like to pull out a few meals at the beginning of the week and place them in my fridge to thaw. It gives me choices and a variety in my dinners
