If you are curious about Healthy Keto Meals for Freezing Recipes then, you’ve come to the right place. I have become a freezer meals guru and they are my go-to source to easy cooking now.

If you are a working mom with a family, a senior like me who does not want to cook every day, or a person who works on a tight schedule the freezer meals are the answer for you. I was in the grind of cooking until I discovered freezer meals. I have over time learned a lot about freezing my meals in advance and I am going to share that knowledge as well as some recipes I like with you today.

This information will lighten your workload and save you money. When I realized that it did not take any more work to make 3 meals at one time than 1 I was able to cut my cooking time by 2/3rds. Think of the possibilities if you make 5 or more meals at one time and freeze 4 of them for later.

The most asked question is “How do you freeze meals?” and the answer is there are so many ways that are right and so few that are wrong that the questions are just too big to answer. I would start by doubling the ingredients for each meal for a week and freezing them. Go to the freezer and there are the same meals ready for the next week without you doing any more work.

20 Healthy Keto Freezer Meals - Keto For Better Health

So here are 10 easy tips to get you started.

10 Keys to Good Freezer Meals

1. Don’t make 50 freezer meals in one day!

2. Frozen Noodles do NOT taste good when they are reheated

3. Freeze Fruits and Vegetables in a separate bag, or don’t include them in the freezer meal at all.

4. Storing food in Freezer Bags is Best.

5. Loose meat is my favorite kind of food to freeze

6. DontForgot to put tonight’s freezer meal in the crockpot this morning?

7. ALWAYS place cooked food in the fridge before freezing.

8. Avoid already- frozen meat.

9. Arrange your freezer meals in your freezer- like books on a bookshelf.

10. Make Meals your family will actually eat.

Freezer Meals Supply List

There are a few supplies you will want to get started creating Healthy Keto Meals for Freezing.

Freezing Supplies

1. Freezer storage bags: Base your size on the number of people each meal will be used for.
2. Foil baking pans. Choose your size as above and look for them at any source, a foil is a foil.
3. Plastic storage containers. I get these at the local dollar store.

Kitchen Supplies

1. A 5-quart Slow Cooker – 5 will do, 7 if you want bigger meals
2. A few large mixing bowls – 4 qt or larger
3. Measuring cups and teaspoons
4. Food Processor

Start Slow

Don’t jump into making more than 2 meals at a time until you see what you will need and to avoid burnout on the project. One great way to do this is when you’re cooking dinner, just cook twice as much and freeze one.

10 FAQ About Healthy Keto Meals for Freezing Recipes

1. What is a freezer meal?

Freezer cooking is freezing meals or ingredients for a meal, in order to make mealtimes easier, most often done in bulk so you have a few meals at a time. Some start by simply doubling a recipe they are making, serving one immediately, and freezing the second for later.

2. Where do I start making freezer meals?

a. Make a double batch of one dinner each week and freeze one batch to enjoy at a later date.
b. Spend an hour making a lot of one thing that your family loves like meatballs or marinated chicken. Package them in meal-sized portions and freeze.
c. Follow a cooking plan.

3. Do you cook freezer meals first?

Since they’re frozen without any cooking ahead of time, they cook for the first time out of the freezer. That means they taste like freshly-prepared meals and not like leftovers at all.

4. How long do freezer meals last in the freezer?

The short answer is this: most food items will keep 3-6 months if wrapped and stored properly. Of course, if you’re anything like me, you enjoy “cooking” from the freezer so much that meals are barely kept for more than a month before they get eaten! With freezer cooking, it is rare that the food actually spoils.

5. Do you thaw freezer meals before cooking?

Most freezer meals need to be thawed before cooking. Thawed meals cook more evenly, quickly, and safely (The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service recommend thawing frozen meat before cooking it in a crockpot).

6. Can you freeze meals in Tupperware?

Don’t store food in single-use take out containers as they are made from thin plastic and not meant to be reused. Only freeze food in freezer-safe Tupperware containers since other boxes from the same brand not approved for freezing may deteriorate, chip & break at low temperatures.

7. What is the best container to freeze food in?

Zip-top bags are especially good for freezing food because you can more easily get all the air out of them than out of rigid containers. You can use them for everything from blanched spinach to chicken thighs and, after laying them flat to freeze, stack them to economize space.

8. How do you freeze food in foil pans?

Line your pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Leave extra foil hanging over all edges so that you can pull it completely over the top later. Place the food in the pan and then put the pan in the freezer, uncovered. When the casserole is frozen lift it out of the pan, using the foil wrap as handles.

9. Can I freeze food in foil?

Heavy-duty aluminum foil can be used as a freezer wrap. Because it can be torn or punctured easily it is wise to use an overwrap. Lightweight (household) aluminum foil is not satisfactory for home freezing.

10. Is it better to freeze casseroles cooked or uncooked?

If the casserole you’re making has raw meat in it, you should absolutely bake the dish to the full temperature before you cool and freeze it. If it has pre-cooked meat or no meat, you don’t have to cook it at all. Freeze the casserole uncooked, and save the cooking for later.

1. Meals for Freezing Recipes – The Best-Ever Healthy Lasagna Recipe

1. The Best-Ever Healthy Lasagna Recipe

The Best-Ever Healthy Lasagna Recipe
There are two types of lasagna in this world. The Italian type is made with a rich meat sauce and covered with béchamel instead of cheese, and the American type is heavy on tomatoes, ricotta, and mozzarella—a delicious, if not altogether healthy, interpretation.

This version of the chicken lasagna recipe represents the best of both worlds, blending the cheesy, tomatoey comfort of the American version with the meatiness and relative healthfulness of the Italian take.
