Get Cooking!

The third Healthy Habits challenge is to cook at least 3 meals more per week than you are now, even if that means cooking breakfast or lunch (for freezing, maybe).

How to Properly Freeze Foods

Preparing double or even triple recipes and freezing portions for later means you don’t have to cook every night to have a delicious and nutritious meal on the table.

Storing Food for Freezing

Step 3: Store

Avoid freezer burn by using moisture-proof zip-top plastic bags and wrap. Remove the air from bags before sealing. Store soups and stews in freezer bags, which can be placed flat and freeze quickly.

Store foods in small servings, no more than 1 quart, to help them freeze quickly. This also allows you to defrost only what you need.

Use a permanent marker to label each container with the name of the dish, volume or weight if you’ve measured it, and the date you put it in the freezer.
