The kids have gone back to school. You would think that I would be less busy and have more time. However, it rarely turns out that way in this house. Every part of the year brings its own form of hectic schedule. What does that mean? That means meal planning.

I like to make meals ahead of time and freeze them. This way, I can just pull something out of the freezer, put it in a pan, and dinner is served. I don’t have to worry about chopping and marinating, etc. It’s all ready to go, it just needs to be heated up. Not only is this cheaper than eating out all the time but it’s healthier and even quicker than ordering in. The great part about a homemade freezer meal is fresher ingredients.

This paleo beef and broccoli has all the best nutrients and none of the processed junk you see in store bought freezer meals. It’s super easy to prepare and will keep for quite a while in the freezer. The garlic and ginger give it a wonderful aroma with a flavor that’s not overly strong. I have one or two picky eaters in this house which is why I like to keep the ingredients separated. You never know who’s going to change their mind from meal to meal. So, freezing the ingredients separately allows me to prepare the meal in a way that makes everybody happy.

  • 1 tsp Fresh Ground Ginger
  • 1 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
