I do this all the time--it takes very little extra time to prepare a double batch and freeze one--and if you count prep & clean up I say it takes less time.

When we're coming to France, I portion out healthy meals like this for my daughter to have while we're away (she's 17), often by cooking extra and freezing leftovers!

I've done this for a long, long, time. I use plastic containers that are just the perfect portion size for me. The only problem I have now is that one of my freezers broke down so I'm having to fight for freezer space with my boys [who mostly do their own cooking].

I frequently make up individual portions of dishes I can't finish in a couple of days. That way, I can have a delicious home made meal tailored to my dietary needs on days I don't feel like cooking. I freeze chicken dishes, pancakes, soups, etc.

This is a great way to have variety. Just know I am thinking of cookies for Christmas. Of course I will use lower calorie recipes.

Thank you. This article is very helpful. I want to try some frozen meals to make planning easier. This way I'll always have a couple of healthy meals in the freezer at all times.

Really appreciate that you included some cruelty-free options here (including vegan French toast!)

Whenever I see these articles, I click with some trepidation because I know it's going to be chicken and turkey-filled. Thanks again!

I've been a diabetic for 16 years. None of my doctors have ever said sodium was an issue. Do you have other health problems?

These recipes are so high in sodium content. Not good for my diabetes.

I use masking tape and a sharpie to mark my containers. The tape is cheap and peels right off. This way I always know what is in my freezer and when I cooked it.

I need to start cooking protein things. We've been getting some from the store, and they're just loaded with salt! I can't stand them. Not at all! I even hate the idea of how they try to make food to be like meat. I became a vegetarian to get away from that, and to get away from the salt they inject into the meat to make it look bigger when you buy it.
