5 Easy, Freezable Lunches for Busy Weekdays
I've started fancying myself a bit of a Weekend Warrior Princess, with a little help from our weekly Sunday Strategist posts. Basically anything that can help me #WintheWeek and get ahead is well worth a few hours of planning and plotting in the kitchen on Sunday. That's why I love learning how to make these easy homemade freezer pockets, based on our recipe for Sausage and Vegetable Calzones (learn how to make them perfectly freezable here):
These lil'cuties have inspired me to gather and share a few more of our freezable single-serve lunches so that you, too, can win your week. And while you're at it, check out our #WintheWeek Instagram contest for a chance to win $100 worth of groceries!
Individual White Chicken Pizzas: Pizza for lunch that's not greasy or sad? Sign me up. These are so good, and you can switch up the toppings to suit your preferences.
Ancho Pork and Hominy Stew: Make as directed, cool, then pour into zip-top baggies or individual containers to thaw and reheat during the week.
Smokey Turkey Almond Mole: Serve over brown rice or quinoa for a filling lunch.
Huevos Rancheros Burritos: This one was developed with breakfast in mind, but I love the idea of it as a protein-packed lunch. You can wrap them individually and store in the freezer for up to three months.
Chicken Tikka Masala: The chicken thighs in this recipe have a natural moistness that helps them hold up well to freezing and re-heating.
Smoky Slow-Cooked Chili: This is a crockpot superstar, so it's doubly easy: Hands off for cooking, then cool and freeze into individual portions.
Stuffed Poblano Peppers: These bad boys contain ground sirloin, but you could easily omit if you're going meatless.
