14 Healthy Freezer to Slow Cooker Recipes

Today is the day! The book I’ve been writing, testing, and getting ready for you since last September is LIVE!

Get all the details here.

I started this massive project of learning about and creating the very best healthy freezer to slow cooker recipes last September. I had a big prep day with my sister and my freezer was full. I started eating my way through each recipe and trying them again and again. Little did I know that in October, my 4 oldest kids would be misdiagnosed and we’d be horribly ill for 6 full weeks. Raising littles and getting dinner on the table can be a struggle most days, but adding in a serious illness (and a newborn that thankfully wasn’t sick) really made things hard. I was so grateful that I had a freezer full of healthy and delicious meals that were prepped and ready to go. All I had to do was stick them in the slow cooker in the morning, and dinner was done for the day. I had more time and energy for my kids because I wasn’t worrying about “What’s for dinner?” every single night. This cooking method saved me.

I have made these recipes time and time again. There’s so much peace and mental freedom knowing that I have some real food options in the freezer.

Your friends are in the same boat I’m sure! Whether it’s illness, baseball games, family outings, Scouts, piano practice, pregnancy, or just life in general, there always seems to be something pulling at you at 5 pm when it’s time to get dinner on the table. Always!

Save time. Save Energy. Eat Healthy. If any of those things sound good to you, this is going to be money well spent.

Having a meal in the slow cooker is awesome, and having a meal in the freezer that you just have to pop in the slow cooker is even better. Having a meal in the freezer that is healthy, required no prep cooking, and will be loved by your whole family is even better.

I had tons of people test recipes with me and feedback was awesome. So many people told me that they started making these meals as gifts for people too. How great is that? One mom made a big batch for her daughter to fill her freezer before the birth of a baby. I have given more than one frozen brick meal away too!

It also comes with a full shopping list and pages and pages of how to’s, tips, tricks, and information for success. No cooking on prep day is a huge time saver! I have also created a second eBook of my favorite bread, muffin, roll, and biscuit recipes. When dinner is in the slow cooker, making a side like these feels like a fun way to use all your extra time, and is a great way to enjoy a little time with the kids.

What are YOU going to do with all your newfound peace of mind and time?!

I paid for the bundle and when I went to download the window closed. I didn’t get an email with links. Can you send me an email with them? I paid via PayPal and the $ has left my account.

Where can I get this book? The link above is no longer working…

This is my thing!

I wonder if you have to let the food of the freeze before to put in the crokpot? or just take off the food from freeze and put it on directly in the crokpot.

I just bought the book and I’m wondering, what’s the longest you’d recommend leaving these meals in the freezer. I’m expecting twins (#3 and 4) and I’m already exhausted so the thought of waiting until 3rd trimester to make is a little rough 🙂

Is this an ad for a book???

Congrats! That is so exciting and everything on that list sounds so delicious! I am going to have to check this book out!

That is fantastic! Such a great idea for a book or recipe collection, well done! You are an inspiration, especially being able to get this produced with small children around!

Is it normal to drool when reading recipes? There are some great sounding meals in this book! If the grocery store wasn’t so far away, I would be prepping a bunch of these tomorrow…..You have no clue how desperately I have needed these ideas in my life! So happy for you and your book! Now the problem will be what to pick for dinner, since I will have so many choices ready to roll! Happy happy day!!!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! This is so exciting! I love the simplicity of these meals! Life changer indeed.
