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 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.

Just purchased ” Seriously good Freezer Meals “. Excited to get started. Want to know if recipes requiring brown sugar or granulated can use substitutes to make “sugarless” . Thoughts?
Hi, I’m not sure as I’ve never tested or played around with many other sugar substitutes. But I’d think you could sure give them a try! If you do, come back here, leave a comment again and let me know if it worked as it could help others that have that same question!
I pinned this! I cant wait to recreate this for a meal idea in the near future! Delish!
This is really great! Such a fun weeknight meal idea!
I haven’t been good about freezer meals in a while. I would ramp up whenever I was pregnant, filling my freezer for what seemed like forever. But I need to get back on it. It’s so much healthier and I save a ton of money.
