Cooking for a family is no easy feat! It can be time-consuming and costly.  However, with a bit of meal planning and some freezer space you can prepare and freeze tasty meals for the whole family. Plus, freezing perishable foods can save you money. The average family of four wastes approximately $1500.00 worth of food every year! When you purchase wholesome ingredients from your bulk grocery store you maximize savings and get restaurant-quality foods packed with flavor. 

Buy Groceries in Bulk for Delicious Freezer Meals

If you haven’t shopped at your local wholesale grocery store, you are in for a money-saving treat!  From fresh vegetables, lean proteins, pantry items and more, you’ll discover everything you need for quality home meals. Not sure where to start? Here are some of our top picks for exceptional items that help you create family-friendly freezer meals everyone will enjoy!

Chicken Breasts and Thighs

Chicken is an excellent protein to have on hand for wholesome meals. It’s also a versatile protein, which can make for some delicious and easy freezer meals. You can stock up on both breasts and thighs without worrying about over-purchasing. You can apply simple marinades and pop the uncooked chicken in the freezer for future dinners. The options don’t stop there, however:

Looking for an elevated, but effortless dinner? Make chicken cacciatore and freeze with ease.

Farm Fresh Eggs

Let’s face it. Sometimes it’s hard to cook a nutritious meal for the entire family every morning. Luckily you can make and freeze various breakfast favorites with fresh eggs from your bulk grocery supplier. From vegetable-laden breakfast sandwiches to trendy paninis and even hearty breakfast casseroles, mornings just got a whole lot easier! These options are delicious and they reheat fast, so you can hit the snooze button one more time.

Ground Beef, Chicken and Turkey

The options for ground meat freezer meals are almost endless. Burgers and meatballs are fantastic for fast preparation and easy cooking. You can also make taco fillings, creamy stroganoffsKorean rice bowls, and more!

Did you know you can also make delish freezer meals using seafood? We love these recipes for shrimp and sausage stew and creamy fish chowder.

Fresh Vegetables

Freezing vegetables is a great way to preserve peak flavor and save on food waste. Plus, if you are looking to eat healthy, increasing veggie intake is key. You can purchase pre-cut veggies for chicken stir-fry packs and savory soups. If you are looking for meatless entrées to enjoy throughout the week, there are a number of vegetarian options that freeze and reheat well. Also, don’t forget about the humble potato! Not only can you cube them and add to your breakfast burritos, but you can also freeze mashed and twice-baked potatoes, too.

Canned and Jarred Goods

Loading up on canned and bottled foods, including beans, tomatoes, sauces, and fish, make simple freezer meals even easier! Canned goods can be used to make chilis, stews, and soups with minimal effort. Use canned proteins for delicious fish cakes and more! Then stick in your freezer for hearty meals.  Check out some of our favorite recipes:

Canned goods have long shelf lives, so you can stock up without worrying about spoilage before you get around to your freezer meal prep.

Bread and Baked Goods

Looking for some fun meals to cook with the kids that also freeze well? Check out your bakery aisles. Turn sliced bread into fun French toast sticks. Make mini-pizzas out of naan and even pizza pockets from pita. Grab plenty of flour and corn tortillas for burritos and enchilada casseroles. These easy meals are kid-approved and get the whole family involved in cooking together!
