Copyright © 2014 Louise A Costas

Having a little junk food from time to time is not bad but it cannot be had constantly. With the hectic work schedule that so many people have, it can be a bit challenging to prepare a healthy meal each day. “50 Quick And Easy Freezer Recipes” a new book by Asher Scott is a great option for that family that is always on the go. With the great recipes that are included a wide array of foods can be prepared and stored for the busy work week. That is the main aim that the author had with this text, to provide great freezer recipes to suit any palate. It is not a new phenomenon but something that is becoming more and more popular as persons search for alternatives to buying fast food on the way home from work.

Asher wrote thsi book because he strongly feels that freezer meals and the entire process have a ton of benefits for busy singles and families as well. It is tough finding recipes for one, but with freezer meals a large batch can be made, split into several portions, and frozen individually for quick, single-serve meals. It works the same way a frozen dinner from the supermarket works, but it’s more nutritious and fiscally responsible in the long run. For busy families, freezer meals ensure a hot, nutritious home cooked meal is on the table every night for the family to enjoy, no matter how many basketball games, soccer practices and dance recitals and other out of school activities are planned for your kids. We have all had the experience of afternoon business meetings running late and urgent work priorities that come up at short notice delaying us reaching home at our usual time.

Freezer meals are huge time savers. Asher truly believes that anyone who has ever tried to cook a meal during a busy weekday knows how long it takes. A meal can take over an hour to make, in some cases. About twice a month, I cook up a bunch of meals and store them in the freezer to enjoy in the coming weeks. Not only does this buy me some time as well as help me avoid dirty kitchens every night of the week, but it also saves me money and resources as I am buying and cooking in bulk.. But, a freezer meal allows for a perfectly nutritious meal to be prepared during a busy week in mere minutes, with almost no effort. All one has to do is pull the meal out of the freezer, allow it to thaw and pop it in the oven. Nothing could be a bigger time saver.

Freezer meals are also economical. You can buy food in bulk and make huge batches of food that can be frozen for later. Switching to freezer meals can save you thousands each year in grocery bills. Many people find that their bulk club memberships can finally be put to good use by adopting this way of cooking.

Freezer cooking can also ensure good health and help people lose weight. If you know you have food waiting for you at home, in the freezer, you are less likely to stop for a burger or taco at a local haunt. Eating in is directly related to healthy weights, so eating at home can help you shed extra pounds and get healthier.

Freezer meals do require some preparation, but most practitioners of freezer cooking, or freezer meals, agree that once they get rolling, preparation is even, and, in some cases, can even be fun. In order to get started, one has to plan meals ahead of time.

A marathon cooking session might not seem like great fun, but it is the best way to get freezer meals done and packed away. Cooking on a Sunday is what most people find preferable, after all, it is the day when most people have completely free to get their cooking done, anyway. Instead of hitting the shops or going to brunch with friends, simply set a Sunday aside to cook.

The extra time you will free up, will get you hooked on freezing more of your evening meals. The money you will save will come as an added bonus. You will get hooked on freezer meals.

Pack food in usable quantities and label all packages clearly. You can use any-type of freezer safe packaging you like, but be sure to label it. Most agree that a bit of masking tape and a sharpie marker pen is the perfect way to label containers that will be used and reused for several marathon cooking sessions. If you are using freezer bags to store your meals, you can simply write your meal names right on them. Most find adding the date you plan to eat the meal to be especially useful.

Asher Scott’s book on Freezer will have you eating healthier in less than a week. Having a little junk food from time to time is not bad thing at all, but it cannot become a routine. With so many of us facing hectic work schedules no wonder many of us can be a bit challenged to prepare a healthy meal after a long day of work. “50 Quick And Easy Freezer Recipes” is a great option for that family that is always on the go. http://amzn.to/1faz08M
