Around 34 weeks pregnant, I had this crazy idea to spend a Sunday afternoon making tons of freezer meals to store in the deep freeze for after our baby arrived. I knew that our friends and family would help us out with meals for a few weeks, but I wanted to be prepared to start eating healthy again after those early weeks! I’m so glad that I did, because our baby arrived a week later (unexpectedly). We lived off of these delicious freezer meals for a long time and they made life so much easier in those first few months!
Today, I’m sharing these 6 Healthy Freezer Meals For New Moms with you guys!

How to prep and store these Healthy Freezer Meals:
You’ll need great freezer containers (like these Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE Food Storage Containers!). I love that the containers I use are also microwave safe and 100% leak proof. Not to mention that they stack wonderfully in the freezer! You can grab them HERE!
Make the individual meals or make them all at once (instructions are in this free ebook). Once each recipe is complete, place it in the freezer container, remove the lid, and let cool in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Next, place the lid on each container and store in the freezer! When ready to serve, remove the lid and microwave.
Each meal has 6 servings. However, we split the meals into servings of 3 in each container since Cody and I were the only ones eating! This made for so many meals!
I hope you guys enjoy these meals, and as always, be sure to let me know what you think in the comments below!
