31 Healthy Crockpot Freezer Meals

By May 27, 2015November 10th, 2017Freezer Prep Session

Do you want to eat healthy dinners without having to slave away in the kitchen?  Healthy crockpot freezer meals are your answer!!  Here are 31 delicious recipes that you can eat every day of the month.

31 Healthy Crockpot Freezer Meals

First, let me explain what I consider to be “healthy.”  The recipes below contain:

  • Vegetables
  • As little processed foods as possible
  • Simple ingredients that your family will love

They do NOT contain:

  • Condensed soups
  • Added sugar
  • Expensive ingredients or anything that is hard to find

I’m a big fan of eating everything in moderation, but if I can feed my family healthier options that still taste great, everyone wins.

The best part is that these crockpot recipes can be frozen without any cooking ahead of time.  I’ve settled into a routine where I spend an hour assembling meals on the weekend, and that’s all the cooking that I need to do for the week.

If you’re nervous about mixing raw meat and vegetables, don’t be.  I did a lot of research when I was writing my No Cook Freezer Meals cookbook and, according to the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service, freezing to 0 °F inactivates any microbes present in food (such as bacteria, yeasts, and molds).  That means freezing raw meat with vegetables, sauces, and spices is perfectly safe. (You can find more info on food safety here.)

Here are 31 healthy crockpot freezer recipes that I’ve tried myself.  They’re all absolutely delicious, nutritious, and easy to make.

  12. Italian Chicken

  14. Beef Roast and Carrots (our favorite!)
  15. Beef Fajitas

  27. Party Pork Roast
  28. Lime Shredded Pork
  29. Tomato, Turkey, and Vegetable Soup
  30. Turkey, White Bean, and Kale Soup
  31. Turkey and Black Bean Chili

If the recipe doesn’t contain freezer directions, simply combine all of the ingredients in a gallon-sized plastic freezer bag, remove as much air as possible, and freeze for up to three months.  (I used to brown my ground meat before freezing, but now I even freeze those meals raw.)

When you’re ready to eat, thaw the bag in your refrigerator overnight or in a bowl of cold water.  Cook according to the recipes instructions and add 1-2 hours if the meal isn’t totally thawed.  Enjoy!

What is that contraption you have the line of bags standing up on? That looks amazing for freezer cooking!


Thanks for sharing! Will you please tell me about the gadgets holding the bags open? It sounds like some genius has solved a problem for me, but this belle is late to the ball.


Can you tell me where you found those amazing bag holders? Thanks!
