About the food:

  • Meals are made from scratch & frozen in convenient freezer bags, which stack easily and take up less space. 
  • Each freezer bag contains an average of 4 servings, though some are a little larger. 
  • Meals should be considered a "Main Dish" - you will likely want to prepare a simple side salad, steamed veggies, or have a nice hearty, whole grain bread on hand. (I will provide you with serving suggestions)
  • All animal proteins are sourced from local farms, and are pastured or free range. 
  • Veggies are sources locally whenever possible. 
  • No artificial ingredients, ever. 

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Defrost your meal in the refrigerator before you want to cook it. For larger cuts of meat, or meals with a lot of ingredients, you will likely need at least 24 hours in the refrigerator to defrost. (Note: vegetarian meals can be added to the slow cooker frozen, though you'll want to defrost them at least enough to break them up so they will fit)
  2. Once defrosted, place all contents of the bag into a slow cooker/crock pot. Follow instructions on entree bag for cook time and any additional step. * 
  3. Go to work, play, errands, wherever you're day will take you.
  4. Come home to a hot, delicious, healthy meal! 

Serving Suggestions:

All of your meals will have serving suggestions on how to pair your entree with a simple side. In general, it's a good idea to plan for fresh or steamed vegetables, a side salad, or a hearty whole grain. This can be as simple as picking up a bunch of asparagus or some pre-washed salad greens when you're at the grocery store.

 

*If you'll be away from the slow cooker for longer than the allotted cook time, be sure you use a machine that will automatically switch to a food safe "warm" setting.
