Crock pot freezer meals -
If you missed it, this weeks real food ABC was on the freezer. Utilizing your freezer and making freezer meals can help increase real food and decrease boxed meals or eating out.

I created a printable to help you. If you were to use this you could make 5 things in your crockpot (affiliate link)and have enough for ~ 19 meals!!

There are a few things to note:

  1. These are only suggestions and do not include recipes. This is just to give you an idea of what you could do.
  2. Okay technically some of these are not "meals" but they are a good start to create a meal from. 
  3. I was definitely on a Mexican food kick when I wrote this.
  4. The amounts are approximate. If you have a bigger family who eats more, you may not get the same number of freezer items.
  5. Some grocery items are not listed. Things like spices or butter/oil. 
  6. If you do this each night for a week and are wondering about cleaning your crockpot every night, you can use slow cooker liners. Reynolds liners are BPA free. (affiliate link)

real food tip 6: crockpot freezer meals -

linked to Talent Show Tuesday


  1. Speaking of jars of pasta sauces. I thought of you last night as I checked the label of our Kirkland Marinara. Only 6 ingredients (if you don't count the water), and none of them weird! The only slightly off one was citric acid, which I assume is to preserve. Now if they would just make an organic version.

    1. There is an organic one that is the store brand from A&P and it has a really short list of ingredients as well. And the jar it comes in is great. Not sure if you have A&P there?

    2. No A&P...that's pretty much an east coast only deal.

    3. I'll keep my eyes out for other organic brands. Maybe next year I will try to make a bunch of homemade organic sauce. I wanted to can this year, but just never got around to it.
