When you think of the benefits of freezer cooking, you can do in four words – time, money, convenience and nutrition! Make this Crockpot Chicken Corn Tortillas recipe as a freezer meal.
Once a Month Freezer cooking saves you time because you are not cooking every night and you are able to use that time to do something else productive or just relax and enjoy a good book. You’re also not running out to the grocery store as often because with freezer cooking your meals are usually planned ahead. That means you have a shopping list, eliminating the need for those last minute runs to the market.
When it comes to money, you save with freezer cooking in many ways. One way you save is by keeping that shopping list mentioned earlier. With a shopping list you are less apt to buy on impulse and that saves you money. Another way you save money is because you usually buy in bulk in preparing for freezer cooking. It’s a known fact that when done the right way, buying in bulk saves money and even time.
Can you imagine the end of the year savings and what you can do with that money? How about a family vacation, money for college, or a get-a-way for mom? There’s so many possibilities as to what you can do with the money you save with freezer meals.
Quick Easy Meals
Convenience is another benefit of freezer cooking. Not only are the meals readily available but you are not the only one who has to prepare dinner. If you have older children who know their way around the kitchen and understand kitchen safety, then you can have them pull out the meal and prepare it. In essence, all they are doing is thawing and cooking. Even your husband can get in on the action. Freezer storage spells convenience also because each morning all you need to do is remove the evening’s entree for reheating at dinnertime. How easy is that?
When you are providing a steady supply of home-cooked meals, you are promoting good nutrition. No need to be concerned with trips to McDonald’s at the end of a long day when you are tired or rushed. There will be plenty of meals at home for you to take out the freezer and prepare for a healthy dinner the family can enjoy and benefit from.
Freezer cooking offers options that anyone can benefit from. So what are you waiting? Start freezing that food today.
