Do you want to eat healthier this year?  Stock your freezer with healthy crockpot meals!  After trying hundreds of freezer crockpot meals last year, I decided to compile a list of my 31 favorites that are healthy, delicious, and budget-friendly too.

31 Healthy Freezer Crockpot Meals

If you’re new to freezer crockpot meals, here’s why I love them: 

  1. They’re super easy to make.  (Simply combine the raw meat, vegetables, and spices in plastic baggies and freeze.)
  2. They cook for the first time out of the freezer and don’t taste like leftovers at all. Yay!
  3. I can prep a bunch at once and save a ton of money at the grocery store.

Since I’ve made hundreds of freezer crockpot meals, I decided to compile a list of my 31 favorites that are perfect for the new year.  These are all healthy meals that I feel good serving my family.

31 Healthy Freezer Crockpot Meals

I know some people aren’t used to mixing raw meat and vegetables, but it’s safe in the freezer.  I did a lot of research when I was writing my Complete Freezer Cooking Bundle and the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service explains that freezing to 0 °F inactivates any microbes present in food (such as bacteria, yeasts, and molds).  That means it’s perfectly safe to freeze these meals and cook them later in your crockpot.

I’ve tried every single one of these recipes myself and can vouch that they’re healthy, delicious, and easy to make.  Enjoy, Friends!

Hi Kelly,

If you forget (or don’t have) an ingredient when preparing freezer meals, is it okay to add them when you put the meal in the crockpot to cook? (Like an onion or beans?)

Hi Jocelyn, I have done it before! I don’t care for how potato comes out when frozen, so I just add them in the morning.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We used the grocery list and recipes and prepped all the meals on Saturday. We loved the Sweet and Sour BBQ Meatballs. The Cilantro Lime Chicken as a taco filling was delicious! Although we are just getting started, I know these meals will completely change our eating habits for the better. No more asking what’s for dinner and ordering a pizza or running through a fast food joint.

I just purchased your ebook and I’m so excited! Yippee!

I have seen two different meatball recipes. One where the recipe says to add 8 cups chicken broth and one where it doesn’t. Do you know which is the correct one?

I am currently making the Sweet and Sour BBQ Meatballs recipe. The instructions from this post say to add 8 cups of chicken broth. I did. I’m pretty sure that is a typo that needs to be fixed because I just totally ruined the recipe by adding the chicken broth.

I’ve done numerous week meal preps, but my weekends are starting to get busy and I want to try one of your 31 meal preps. When prepping this many meals at one time how do you place them in the freezer to make sure they all get frozen. I worry that filling my freezer full of raw food won’t guarantee that it actually freezes.
