freezing food helps us to eat a little lessand I use less space in the freezer.Having an extra freezer helps to do this.
I cook up a large batch of vege's usually rice and put it in a large freezer bag.I then flatten the bag so the vege's(rice) is a thin layer,that way I can break off just the right amount that I need and it takes up less room in the freezer.

It occured to me yesterday as I was looking at the frozen food section in Henry's, that I don't do alot of prepackaged frozen foods anymore! I still have some frozen foods stocked in the freeezer as now we have t-ball practice AT DINNERTime :( And can't always have dinner ready when we get home!But I really have learned some NEW HEALTHY EATING HABITS from SP and one is to REALLY LOOK at the cals on the back! The foods look SO APPEALING,but many times the frozen foods have way too much fat ...
in them! I do get Kashi Pizza or CA Pizza Kitchen with 300 or LESS cals per 1/3 slice of pizza. I also get different veggie combos as our veggie garden isn't producing yet~still too early in the summer....I am happy SP is really helping my Healthy Eating!
This time of year there are usually great sales on turkey and ham. So I buy as much as I can, cook, slice, put portions in the freezer for later use. This way, I have saved money and can eat healthy meats at a later date. Since they are already cooked, preparing them for a meal takes less time.
