This vegetable and beef chili recipe came from the Beyond Diet 7 Day Rescue plan and is one of my favorites. I can have this ready in 15 minutes and I usually have all the ingredients on hand. And of course, I make a lot every time and fill the freezer and have a quick go-to lunch idea. For lunch, I add some rice in. For dinner, I just eat it plain or use it as my pizza sauce on homemade pizzas. As a snack, I put it on top of tortilla chips with some cheese. Can I just say these are amazing nachos without a lot of the added effort and one of our faves! [Read more…]
This zesty beef meatloaf recipe is one of my favorites. The best part about it is that touch of spicy that most meatloaf recipes don’t have. AND the added nutrients from the vegetables is a bonus. When we make this meatloaf we make a bunch of them and throw them in the freezer for a quick and easy meal. During these times, being able to plan ahead matters.

Hands down my favorite “healthy burger” recipe is this Zucchini Turkey Burger recipe I got from Beyond Diet. The first time I tried them I was a skeptic. Afterall, they have zucchini in them and they are made from turkey not beef. But I feel in love. My whole family did. We like them so much that we don’t make just a couple at a time. We make 5 pounds and freeze them. [Read more…]
It’s the season for comfort foods. Fall is in the air, gardens are winding down, and our peppers are plentiful. We have a couple different stuffed pepper recipes for you to try. One of them is featured in our crockpot freezer meal series and uses cauliflower instead of rice. And the other is below.
This stuffed pepper recipe stands out because of it’s use of lentils. Lentils are known for being high in fiber and protein. These nutrition packed stuffed peppers are also delicious.
Here’s a sure way to get your trick or treaters in the mood for Halloween. This easy Monster Meatloaf Halloween Dinner recipe puts a different presentation on a homecooked meatloaf full of hearty nutrition.
My family and I love this stuffed shells recipe. When our extended family gets together, it’s often a request of theirs. And the BEST part is it makes 2 pans so I freeze one for later! These are definitely a favorite that you should try.
Stir-frying is a great way to get some extra veggies in your meals. It’s also a great way to use up left-overs in the fridge! This sauce is fantastic and adaptable for heat and sweetness. Whip up a batch and enjoy!
Thai food is one of my favorite discoveries! But when we order take out it’s easily $70! This meal was $10 and we ate it twice. PLUS it’s part of the Sisters Know Best Freezer Meal Series so I have another in my freezer for another time. The peanut butter gives it a creamy flavor and adding the vegetables makes this Slow Cooker Thai Pork with Peanut Sauce recipe a delicious well rounded meal!
I loved making this Cilantro Lime #Chicken #Crockpot recipe because of the lime fragrance. Lemons and limes are so refreshing. I squeezed the lime in to my freezer bag when I prepared it and threw the peeling in my garbage disposal. It’s a great way to freshen it up! I had my chicken over rice and Bill had his in a wrap. We both thought it was delicious!
This stuffed pepper recipe for the #crockpot is different than the one I normally make. I like that you use cauliflower in place of rice. And I really like you can make a bunch of them for freezer meals and pop in the crockpot! You don’t even have to defrost them first!
Who doesn’t love spaghetti!?! It’s the American food of choice and having this easy crockpot spaghetti sauce on hand in the freezer makes our fa[mily happy! I’m sure it will make yours happy too!
