Freezer meals can be dishes made specifically for the freezer (as with Once-a-Week Cooking or Once-a-Month Cooking) or simply leftovers saved for another day. Whichever style you prefer, keeping your freezer well stocked, clean and organized can be a great way to save time and money. You could put these savings towards additional food storage, a rainy day fund, or necessities like health insurance.
Home made frozen meals are also healthier than prepackaged foods, since you control the ingredients. Mass produced foods are packed full of artificial preservatives, colors and additives which are not good for the body. With a well-stocked freezer, you’ll be less tempted to grab fast food when you don’t feel like cooking (or don’t have time to cook).
