If you’re following the Whole30 diet, I have some exciting news for you: I made 10 Whole30-Compliant crockpot freezer meals! It only took me 90 minutes to make them and they’re so delicious. I’ll share my recipes and shopping list below in case you want to make them too.
Here’s what I made:
- Steak Italiano (also great in the Instant Pot)
- Cool Ranch Chicken (yum!!)
- Sausage-Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers (omit the cheese)
- Tuscan Chicken Stew adapted from Sweet Peas and Saffron
- Classic Pot Roast (with homemade seasoning mix)
- Stuffed Pepper Soup with Cauliflower Rice modified from Maria Makes
- Lemon Chicken with Baby Spinach
- Beef and Sweet Potato Chili (SO GOOD)
- Shredded Chicken Enchiladas from Natasha Red (serve over sweet potatoes)
- Beef and Cabbage Soup from my cookbook eBooks and shared for free
What’s so great about these Whole30 crockpot freezer meals?
- They don’t require any cooking ahead of time, so I was able to make all of them in 90 minutes (9 minutes/meal).
- The groceries only cost $128 ($12.80/meal with 4-6 servings).
- They’re delicious! (I already tried all of them myself.)
I’ve made a lot of crockpot freezer meals, so here are some tips for making this group quickly and painlessly:
- Print the recipes and shopping list and go grocery shopping ahead of time.
- Make the meals during a time when you won’t be interrupted. (I always plan ahead so my husband can be with our four children.)
- Use baggy stands to hold the bags upright and keep your floor clean. (Not essential, but helpful.)
- Fill the bags one-by-one or in an assembly line.
- Add the meat last so it’s the first ingredient dumped into the crockpot. (I store my meat in the refrigerator while I’m filling all of the bags and then add it right before I’m going to seal them.)
- Play music, have fun, and be sure to give yourself a pat on your back when you’re done.
Since I’ve made these recipes before, I also took a couple of shortcuts to save time: I used frozen diced onions (instead of chopping fresh ones) and pre-peeled garlic cloves. I added this info to the printable recipes/shopping list above so you can do the same.
These crockpot freezer meals will last at least three months in the freezer, so you can eat all of them over 30 days or space them out over a few months. Yum!
