Essential Guide to Meal Planning: Wholesome Freezer Meals for the Entire Family

When it comes to preparing delicious homemade meals, it’s natural to consider the logistics and potential costs involved. The thought of purchasing new ingredients that might only be used once can be daunting. However, cooking flavorful meals doesn’t always have to be a budget-buster. Thanks to Cookidoo®, an extensive digital recipe platform, you can access thousands of exquisite recipes that are not only delicious but also budget-friendly.

Busy Weeknights

On busy weeknights, potluck freezer dinners have become a convenient solution for us here at Thermomix®, thanks to Tara from our Recipe Development team. Tara preps two to three freezer-friendly meals in advance, freezes them in convenient portions, and she and her kids enjoy a “potluck” dinner every time her husband is away for work.

To make things even easier, keep handy portions of boiled rice, naan bread, and other grains in your freezer. This way, once you’ve chosen your potluck main dish, you can quickly and easily reheat your sides as well. The Warm-up mode on your TM6 is perfect for reheating your meals to the ideal temperature. And with the help of our Vac-U-Seal food vacuum sealer set, you can safely store your prepped dishes in the freezer without any hassle!
