What are Paleo Freezer Meals?

I’m frequently too busy for my own good, which tends to get in the way of my desire to eat Paleo. Hopefully, I’m not alone in that – Can I get an amen?

In an effort to be proactive, I have been pinning various Paleo meals that can be prepped ahead of time, frozen in gallon size plastic bags, and warmed up in my slow cooker.

Over Spring Break, I finally made some time to prep some of the recipes listed on Jam Kat’s post, “Paleo Slow Cooker Freezer Meals,”and Life Made Full’s post, “Paleo Freezer Meals.” These are the recipes that I tried:

*Hawaiian Barbeque Chicken

*Chicken Balsalmic

*Yummy Italian Chicken

*Italian Sausage

*General Tso’s Chicken

*Cilantro Lime Chicken

*Garlic Ginger Beef

It took about 3 hours to grocery shop, prepare all of the ingredients, bag each meal, label it with cooking instructions, and pack in the freezer. I did not take any pictures along the way, but suggest that you check out the previously mentioned blog posts for pictures, if needed.

It has been so convenient to not have to answer the dreaded “What’s for dinner?” question during this busy season at work.

Do you have any Paleo freezer meal recipes that you would like to share? I’m always looking for new ideas.

The Paleo Diet – Eat Like a What?

My husband and I have been following the Paleo Diet for over a year now. We have lost a few pounds and seen a decrease in digestive issues, but more importantly, we have gained extra energy and muscle mass as a result of following this high protein, low carb diet.

Want to know more? Basically, the Paleo Diet encourages people to cut out grains and dairy. The iconograph below from A Clean Plate explains what it means to “eat like a caveman,” as well as some of the benefits.

What is Paleo

Recently, I have been experiencing some health issues (I’ll share more about this at a later time) and sought guidance from a local Natural Health Clinic. The doctor looked at my blood work and body composition assessment results and said that I was pretty healthy, largely in part to following the Paleo Diet.

As you can tell, I am definitely a fan of the Paleo lifestyle! I recognize that it is not the only healthy eating option out there and it has received its fair share of criticism. Nevertheless, it has worked for us.

The truth is – a single diet (even the Paleo diet) does not work for every person. What has worked for you?

If you want to try the Paleo diet, then stay tuned for my future posts about my meal plans, recipes, and the additional benefits of adopting this lifestyle!
