Homecooked Freezer Meals

Postby Angel » Mon Jan 02, 2006 9:42 pm

I have chronic fatigue syndrome and don't always have the energy to cook meals so rely heavily on soups, a curry casserole, chicken risotto, the occasional Lean Cuisine and, before my weightloss journey, loads of takeaways.

What I find helpful is if I can cook up a meal on one of my better days and freeze it for my bad days. But boy am I sick of the same old thing.

Anyone got some yummy low fat recipes that you can freeze. I don't eat a lot of red meat so chicken, fish or vegetarian recipes would be great.

New recipes pleeeeeeeeeease :lol:
Cheers

you could do some different vege-full pasta sauces, which are good for a range of things - you could just throw on a pot of wholemeal pasta, or just saute up some zucchini or eggplant and put the sauce on that.

homemade patties are fantastic - I'll put a recipe for my fave lentil burgers in the forum recipe section - I can't see any reason you couldn't just freeze them, then reheat when needed.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Thanks Butterfly_Dawn and Dolly I'll check it out.

Some days I can make up a salad and grill a chicken fillet, cook up some pasta and plop on some sauce but for my really bad days I need what I call a 'one stop shop', you know, just reheat and eat - a homemade, more cost efficient version of a Lean Cuisine. :oops:

I'll have a look at the websites recipe section and see how I go.

Cheers

I mostly use a set of recipe books called Symply Too Good To Be True... They are full of yummy things, a lot can be frozen. There are 4 books available and you can get them from most Newsagencies

Isnt it amazing what a few small changes can do to a recipe... I was cooking many of the recipes in those books beforehand and now I can still enjoy them while trying to lose weight...
