Six Freezer Staples to Always Keep on Hand

Often, none of us have the chance to make an elaborate dinner but we also don’t want to eat out every night. There are a few things I always keep in my freezer so I can whip up a meal for me and my husband in no time. This is especially helpful on Sunday nights if we are late getting home from a weekend away or on a weeknight when we don’t have the chance to eat until rather late and don’t want to take the time to sit down at a restaurant.  Here’s what is always in my freezer, I would love to know what’s in yours!

Udi’s Gluten Free Pizza Crust– I eat these a lot.  Such a quick and healthy lunch or dinner.  Pull the crust straight from the freezer, top with pizza sauce (no sugar added, ingredients you can pronounce, I like Rao’s), spinach, and top lightly with organic mozzarella cheese.  Bake at 375 for 8 minutes.

Peeled Bananas-Always have a huge bag of peeled, over ripe bananas in the freezer.  Throw them in smoothies or make “ice cream” with them by tossing in a high powered blender with almond butter, almond milk, cacao and dates.

Ezekiel Sprouted Tortillas– Scramble a few local eggs, throw in some spinach and salsa and transfer onto a heated tortilla. Healthy, delicious meal for any time of day.

Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin Bread– This is SO good toasted lightly and topped with MaraNatha Raw Maple Almond Butter and a drizzle of local honey.  It is like dessert.  Trust me.

Fruit– I always have blueberries, strawberries and mango in my freezer.  Add them to smoothies, oatmeal, banana bowls or make infused water.

Wild Caught Raw Shrimp– Such a quick, healthy dinner is just minutes away.  Saute and add to brown rice pasta, boil with spices and dip in homemade cocktail sauce, or bake with veggies and fill a whole wheat pita topped with feta cheese.
