Save Money and time. When you are ready to cook, pull out a meal size bag out of the freezer to thaw. Often the 10 pound of meat is on sale. If it has already been weighed, you won't have to guess how much to take out of the freezer. And you won't eat more than you should for a meal.

I'm all about "Fast" food! Every Sunday I shop, and then spend about 2 hours preparing foods for the week. From BBQing chicken tenders and petit sirloins (freeze in portions and label so I don't have to weigh anything) to hardboiling a dozen eggs for snacks and quick protein, cutting broccoli and cauliflour in meal size portions, cooking/freezing portions of barley, brown rice, making my lunches for the week in ziploc "to go" paks - make possible nutritious "fast" food build your own meals!!!
Great Family Meal ideas: 1. Build Your Own (BYO) salads, use the sliced chicken or eggs for protein 2. BYO Stir fry - PAM in skillet with one of your whole grains with some soy sauce, fresh peppers and onions or other veggies, and some sliced steak or chicken 3. BYO "Rice Bowl" with leftovers
Buy sets of perfect portion tupperware containers. Tiny tubs for snacks e.g. nuts or dried fruit, small size to hold a single portion of meat, fish, stew etc and a medium size to hold an individual light meal e.g. salad, chicken and rice.
These tubs can microwave, freeze or work as a lunchbox!
