A Make-Ahead Freezer Cooking Swap (Guest Post)

The following is a guest post from Devon :
Freezer cooking is such an appealing concept; cook once a week and have your dinners ready to go for the next seven days. In practice, however, stocking the freezer can be difficult depending on your season of life.
Dedicating an entire day each week to planning, shopping, prepping, and cooking can be exhausting. And it can also take away from precious weekends and family time. The overall effect is that many moms who begin a regimen of traditional freezer cooking realize quickly that it’s simply not feasible on a regular basis.
The solution? Try a make-ahead swap! With a make-ahead meal swap, you can make freezer cooking an efficient and effective way of providing healthy, home-cooked meals to your family.
Here’s how it works:
One of the biggest benefits of the make-ahead swap is the time it saves; rather than spending all day cooking seven meals, you’ll spend just a few hours preparing a large batch of one meal. However, the benefits don’t end there.
Freezer cooking really can be an efficient and cost-effective way of preparing healthy meals for your family – and fun, with a little help from your friends!
