We’re big fans of meal prep but somethings, the food you make on a Sunday is already looking questionable by Wednesday. The solution? The freezer. With its help, you can make batches of tasty treats and pop them into the lunch box the night before or defrost them in the morning with the help of your microwave. Genius!

TWO-CHEESE AND KALE FRITTERS

Cheesy and packed with healthy kale, these fritters are awesome for lunch, dinner or even brekkie! The beauty of these fritters isn’t just that they’re freezer-friendly – you can also pack them with whichever veggies you have available.

STRAWBERRY BANANA MUFFINS

It’s the most important meal of the day, so why not make it FUN?! These muffins use a lot of the same ingredients that you might find in your morning oats – yoghurt, strawberries, banana and oats themselves – and are kid-friendly, freezer-friendly and super healthy.

MOROCCAN LAMB WITH SLOW COOKER

Normally we love the slow cooker for busy days, but it can be just as good when you’re stuck at home, too! This recipe calls for lamb, but we bet you could use beef, chicken or even pork if that’s all you have. Make a huge batch for dinner and freeze the leftovers – simple.

CHORIZO SPANISH RICE

The perfect “throw it all in” recipe, this rice could feature any number of superstars – toss in whichever veggies or meat you have access to and call it a day. It’s a one-pot wonder and a winter warmer all rolled into one. Plus, did we mention it’s freezer-friendly?!

PEAR, DATE AND WALNUT LOAF

With enough in it to make now and freeze later and the freedom to add in any other fruits or nuts you’ve got in your pantry, this loaf is a midweek saviour. Have it for breakfast, morning tea or with cream or ice cream after dinner. You’ll fly through two loaves in no time flat!
