Easy Meal Prep Ideas

Pre cooking lean meats (watch for sales!) then freezing them in food saver type bags saves time, makes meal prep easy! Lean ground turkey, BBQ'd London Broil or boneless/skinless chicken breast thinly sliced. Freeze into meal-sized portions for your family (my bags serve 2)

5 pounds of 99% lean ground turkey... cook it into crumbles. Cool, then spread out on a sided cookie sheet. Cover with plastic wrap, freeze overnight. Portion out into 10 freezer bags (8 oz each). Seal into ziplock freezer or meal save- type bags. Thaw bag in hot water to use in many recipes

    It would save time only if I remembered to thaw the meat otherwise I wonder if the meat would get tough in the reheating process.

Leave encouragement, a question, or anything else relevant to this. All comments must abide by SparkPeople's Community Guidelines.
