This morning was Quinn’s first swim class. Take a peek!

Thursdays are always going to be really busy for me since we have swim class, I get a kiddo of the bus and take him to speech and occupational therapy, and it’s girl’s night. Sometimes there just isn’t enough time to get a healthy meal in! How convenient it would be to order pizza or grab fast food.

That ain’t happenin’.

I would much rather grab a meal from the freezer A.K.A. “Energy Bank.”

Whenever I use my crock-pot, I always have enough for leftovers so I freeze it and we eat it another night when we are too lazy, we are low on groceries, or too busy. Seriously, this is so easy! Often times, crock pot meals can put a bulge in your waistline, but I’m giving you a list of meals that I think would be healthy and convenient for you and your family.

I prefer to freeze my stash and meals flat style and stack them. This allows them to thaw faster and saves you a ton of space.

Start your stash tonight! You can keep track of the expiration date by printing a chart and laminating it. Use a dry erase marker to write the meal and the “use by” date. Here is one I created for you!

I hope this saves you some time and energy!
