31 Paleo Crockpot Freezer Meals

If you’re following the Paleo diet, your life is about to get a whole lot easier.  Here are 31 healthy, delicious, and budget-friendly recipes that you can freeze for your crockpot.  Free printable recipes and grocery list below!

31 Paleo Crockpot Freezer Meals. Free grocery list!I’ve been researching the Paleo diet and it seems like some foods fall in a “Paleo gray area” and are considered OK by some people and not by others.

Just to be clear, the recipes below are:

  • dairy-free
  • grain-free
  • gluten-free
  • soy-free
  • sugar-free
  • free of processed foods (except canned tomatoes)
  • absolutely delicious! (because that’s what matters most to me when cooking)

Some of the recipes contain:

  • sweet potatoes
  • honey
  • olive oil
  • apple cider vinegar

I tried to stick to a strict Paleo diet, but I wanted to make sure the recipes would taste delicious.   I also wanted to include common ingredients that are available at most grocery stores.  No fancy stuff here!

15 Things You Need To Know About No-Cook Freezer Meals

If you’re new to crockpot freezer meals you’re going to get hooked:

  1. There’s no cooking required ahead of time.  Simply combine the meat, vegetables, and spices in freezer bags and freeze for up to three months.
  2. The meals cook for the first time out of the freezer and don’t taste like leftovers at all.
  3. You can save a lot of money by buying the ingredients in bulk.

I don’t follow the Paleo diet myself, but I’ve made thousands of crockpot freezer meals over the years so I know a good one when I see one.  These are the best Paleo recipes that I’ve tried myself or found on the web.  (I literally spent hours and hours and days searching for good ones.)  Enjoy!

(Update 12/19: The ingredients from recipe #8 were accidentally omitted from the list!)

Crockpot freezer meals are good for at least three months, so if you spend a couple of hours prepping these meals over the weekend and you’ll be set with meals for a long, long time!

  • […] from New Leaf Wellness has a great list of 31 Paleo Crockpot Freezer Meals. Her free download includes grocery lists and recipes for all of the […]

  • Kristen says:

    Some of these recipes do have cooking necessary along with the crockpot; they are not all dump and go.

    • Kristen, there is no cooking ahead of time!

      • Angelica says:

        Well, that’s kind of misleading because who would cook something, only to freeze it and then cook it again? So “no cooking ahead of time,” would lead you to believe that we won’t need to prepare anything before we can dump all of the ingredients into the crock pot. Sorry, I have to agree with Kristen. 🙂

        • Angelica, I apologize. You and Kristin are correct. Some of the recipes from other blogs do require cooking ahead of time. The New Leaf Wellness recipes are “dump & go”. Let me know if you would like me to brainstorm ways of making the other recipes that way as well. Sorry about that!

      • Ali says:

        Hi Jill, I came here to say “Chopping doesn’t count as cooking!” but the Hearty Hungarian Beef Stew requires searing the beef first, and the chicken tortilla soup requires sautéing the veggies before putting in the crock. I haven’t looked at all the recipes, but of the few that I did, those had cooking ahead of time 🙁

  • Jill says:

    How big is your family? Are all of your meals meant for a certain number of people? Also I think you are amazing for having done all of this and blessed your family with your creativity and frugality! You go girl 😉

    • Hi Jill, this is Jill…we have a family of 4. Kelly has a family of 6! Most of our meals will feed six adults, so for those of us with littles, there are usually leftovers. Thank you for the compliment. 🙂

  • […] meal plans. If you are interested in making a month of paleo meals, then she has a free plan here you’ll want to check out (including a grocery list!). Gluten free and dairy free? She has a […]

  • Aimee says:

    Thisay be a super stupid question….But do I need to brown the ground beef beforehand? Or do you put it on the bags raw? Obviously I’ve never made freezer meals with beef before. 😉

  • Milly Rende says:

    Hi i just order the book and paid for it but it never ask me for my address? who would they know were to send it, please let me know if i did something wrong as there was no asking about the address

  • JMartin says:

    I can’t believe my good fortune at finding these recipes! THANK YOU for doing the brainwork! 😉 I can’t wait to try each and everyone !
    Keep up the good work! :))

  • Amilia says:

    Any idea what these meals would cost if prepared all at one time? I like to do one day freezer meals, but this looks like it may be out of my budget to do all at once…
    Thanks in advance.

  • Clarissa Wright says:

    I have the same question as Amilia…what is the guesstimated cost of going out and buying everything on the list. My family is trying to stick to $500 a month.

    • Tammy says:

      Hi Clarissa,

      I can tell you that is cost us about $800-1000.00 since we just purchased everything yesterday and made 27 of the 31 meal. Keep in mind that we also live in Hawaii and food costs way more here than the mainland. Hope that helps. Tammy

    • Amilia says:

      I ordered our groceries through Walmart grocery- so I justed pulled up and they put everything in my car! Yay! Great time saver!!! There were maybe 4 recipes I removed because my family won’t eat them. These meals cost about $350 total for us. There were a couple things they didn’t have and I had to go elsewhere to pick up… but it was totally worth it to us. I am doing this a second time now. I will be excluding a few that didn’t go over well with our family.

  • Tammy says:

    Well, we just finished doing 27 of the 31 recipes for the first time. Firstly, thank-you so much for making these recipes and the for preparing the grocery list. What a feat this must have been!! However, I did find a few mistakes. Corn definitely should not be in a paleo diet as listed in the Seafood Boil. Also, one diet suggested serving Quinoa on the side. I believe this is also not Paleo, but perhaps these are some gray area foods for some people.
    On another note from the time we got up, modified the grocery list based on what we already had in the house, went and got the groceries, came back unloaded them, prepared all the recipes and cleaned up it took us about 12 hours!!! The actual food preparation time itself took a solid 7 hours with maybe a 10 minute break in there with 2 people doing it. Needless to say we are exhausted. I am not sure if I would do all them at once again, lol. I guess I will have to see how helpful it is in the future. The next thing will be waiting to see how tasty the recipes turn out.


    • Kat says:

      I’m planning on having a “freezer meal” party with my friends before we all head back to school! I’m hoping this will save us time and money! These are amazing recipes!

  • Mary P says:

    WOW this is great! We are renovating our house and I will not have full access to kitchen for a few weeks. I was looking for either prep ahead of time and freeze or marathon cook and freeze. These saved me a ton of time. Thank you.

  • Rebekah says:

    Thank you so much for all the work you’ve put into this! I’ve done this myself before with other recipes and I know it’s a crazy amount of work. The cost estimates (in the comments) and adaptations for freezer meals are particularly helpful. I just came off of a gestational diabetes pregnancy and am wanting to rebalance our family’s diet to have more low-carb food in the rotation since that worked really well for managing the GD, but with four little boys at home right now and one brand new, I don’t have time to redo all the work I’d done with past recipes. This is exactly what I needed! Almost all of these look delicious (pretty good for 31 recipes) and would have fit my needs for the GD, so we are adding to our meal rotation. I’ll definitely be making them all if/when I get pregnant again too!

  • Carol R says:

    This is amazing! I cant wait to try them all. I work 2 jobs so I never have the time or energy to cook. I am going to prepare 5 meals and see how that works. Thanks for all your hard work. Do you have any breakfast/lunch recipies that are gf, paleo, dairy free? They dont have to be crockpot. I am transitioning into a dairy free, somewhat gf lifestyle and can use all the help I can get.
