I’m finally able to jump back on the Freezer Cooking Day bandwagon again. Oh, how I’ve missed having food at-the-ready in my freezer! If you’re new here, you can find out more what Freezer Cooking Day is all about by scrolling through previous posts here.
Since we’re on Phase 2 of the P90X Diet, my Freezer Cooking Day is going to look a little different this time around as we’re mostly eating fresh produce and lean proteins, so we make the bulk of our food fresh. But here’s what I came up with to make:
Spiced Blueberry Coconut Muffins (doubled)
Banana Crumb Muffins (doubled)
10 Homemade Smoothie Kits — I’m making up the recipe for these using some reduced bananas and strawberries I bought this week and some peaches my mom gave me. I’m planning to make some peach and strawberry/banana kits.
60 Homemade Oatmeal Packets — We’ve switched to eating oatmeal almost every morning for breakfast since it’s frugal, healthful and easy. (We’re trying to get away from eat boxed cereal most of the time and I want to become more creative with breakfasts, but everyone’s happy with oatmeal right now, so it’s working.) My husband had the idea for me to put together oatmeal packets so he and the girls could just make their own. So I’m making up my own recipe for these, but you can get quite a few different ideas here. I’ll post details on what I end up doing on Monday.
5 meal’s worth of chopped and cooked chicken breasts (for topping salads)
5 meal’s worth of marinated chicken cooked and sliced (for topping salads or eating plain)
I’ll post some of the recipes, some pictures and more about my Freezer Cooking Day on Monday, along with a link-up for you to post your accomplishments if you’re playing along.
