Geez, I can’t believe it’s March already. We spent February hibernating with a newborn, so now I’m craving spring. I have my eye on a deluxe trampoline and I can’t wait to get my kids outside. In case you were wondering, being stuck inside with five little kids is crazy. And loud.
We already ate all of the freezer meals that I prepped while pregnant, so I’m back to relying on my crockpot to keep us afloat. I came up with a list of 12 recipes for this month that I’m super excited about.
What’s so great about these recipes?
- They’re healthy. (Most of them include seasonal veggies like asparagus, cauliflower, citrus fruits, leafy greens, peas, or sweet potatoes)
- They can be frozen without any cooking ahead of time. That means they’re very quick and easy to prep and cook for the first time in the crockpot. (No “leftover” taste.)
- They’re delicious! (I tried all of them myself.)
12 Healthy Crockpot Freezer Meals to Make in March
- Beef and Broccoli
- Lemon Pepper Chicken from my freezer meal post
- Salsa Verde Shredded Pork Tacos
- Beef, Lime, and Cilantro Chili (YUM)
- Ginger Chicken with Snow Peas
- Corned Beef and Cabbage
- Hearty Beef Vegetable Soup from my Costco organic freezer meals (with ground beef or meatballs)
- Citrus Chicken from my Clean Eating Crockpot eCookbook and shared for free below
- Italian Pork Roast
- Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps
- Italian Chicken from this freezer meal prep session (SO GOOD)
- Homemade Mississippi Roast with Carrots (one of the best crockpot recipes ever)
If you’re motivated to prep and freeze all of the meals at once, here is how I assemble and cook each one (including a full shopping list and meal planning calendar!):
If you look at the calendar above, you’ll see that I picked a “theme” for each day of the week and then found seasonal crockpot recipes that would match that theme. (For example, Beef and Broccoli on a Beef-themed Monday.) I also included a variety of tastes and textures so we wouldn’t feel like we were eating the same thing everyday.
My husband, Andy, added text boxes to the calendar, so you can swap the meals to fit your schedule, delete the meals you don’t want to make, etc. I hope you have a wonderful March, Friends.
