From Your Freezer to Your Family-Slow Cooker Freezer Meals Ecookbook
The whole idea for slow cooker freezer meals came from me doing many months of once a month, bulk freezer cooking. I loved the concept and loved all the pretty food ready to freeze at the end, but it was overwhelming and exhausting. At the end of my cooking day, my whole body would ache and I was so tired. Looking back it was probably because I started doing bulk freezer cooking when my daughter was 6 months old and life in general was overwhelming and exhausting.
But I decided that there had to be an easier way.
The first time I assembled all my slow cooker meals, I felt like I invented electricity! It took me a year from the time I first started doing freezer cooking to come up with this idea and tweak my recipes, so it was a long, awaited personal success.
What I do is the combination of the easiest type of freezer cooking, which is meals that only require assembly, and no cooking on your actual cooking day by using the slow cooker, which allows you to walk away and mostly forget about it until it’s time to eat.
My book also covers why these recipes are healthy and what exactly healthy really means. Over the past ten years, I have tried every healthy fad out there from veganism to Weight Watchers to lose weight and become truly healthy. When I read Nourishing Traditions, I felt like I was home. My book is heavily influenced by the Weston A Price Foundation and Nourishing Traditions. In my book, you will learn very basic, intro information about how to transition your way of cooking into a Real Food one.
I am 12 to 15 pounds skinner than I was before I even got pregnant with Penelope. Eating Real Food and these recipes is the only way of eating that has helped me lose weight! I do not count calories, I only focus on eating very nourishing and healthy foods, my freezer recipes make up a big portion of the food I eat.
So not only do I hope these recipes make you healthier, feel better and lose weight, I hope you enjoy the amount of time it will save you in your life! If it weren’t for these meals I don’t know how I would get healthy dinners to the table every night.
So… who should buy my ecookbook?
Anyone who is struggling to get a healthy and nutritious meal on the table for their family, every night. If you often order pizza, get take out, or worse drive through. Slow Cooker Freezer Recipes will be your saving grace, promise.
Anyone who manages to get a healthy dinner on table every night, but would love to have several easy meals in your arsenal, so you don’t have to work so hard every night and so you can spend more time with your family, instead of slaving away in the kitchen.
Anyone who travels a lot and needs to leave food for their family to make in their absence.
Anyone who is ill or just had a baby. These are the perfect delivery meals!
Anyone who has no idea how to cook. If you can chop vegetables, you can make these meals. If I can make these recipes, so can you! So bachelors, college kids, this is for you, too.
Anyone who likes to plan ahead, buy items in bulk to save money.
Who should not buy my ecookbook?
Anyone who hates their vegetables soft. I’m sorry but if you cook with a slow cooker your veggies are gonna be soft. There are ways around it, you can add your veggies the last 30 minutes of cooking or cook them separately, but in general if you have texture issues you may want to stick to crisp, stir frys (but do it with healthy oils)!
Anyone who is French trained chef. If you are ambitious and a perfectionist when it comes to cooking, just pass this on by. This ecookbook is for tired Mamas who want to get a pretty darn good meal on the table for their family, and they are not entertaining fancy people.
But for everyone else, this book is for you!! It will change your life!
What’s in the book:
This ecookbook has nine new recipes in it, twenty total. I have even included my family’s famous empanada recipe in it for extra fun. Everyone always asks me for the recipe, so here you go!
It also has all my classic recipes, some that have updated and tweaked just a bit for added flavor.
It also includes grocery lists. I divided up all the recipes into groups of three. So you can easily shop for 3 recipes, which of course makes 6 meals.
Each recipe has nutrition info. So you know exactly how many calories, protein etc that you are consuming. Although, I will mention, try not to count calories, and just focus on eating good quality, real food and you will be lean eventually, promise.
And lastly, the book includes some super cute labels that you can print out and place onto your freezer bags. It will tell you the name of the recipe, any items that need to be added the day of cooking and a place to write the day you assembled and placed in your freezer.
Cumin-Cinnamon Beef Stew
Ginger Cranberry Pork Roast
Summer Veggie Soup
Thai Chicken Curry
Penelope’s Carrot-Ginger Soup
Healing Chicken Soup
Chicken n’ Cherries
French Dip Beef Stew
Orange Beef Stew
Moroccan Lamb Stew
Flank Steak Fajitas
Healthy Mama BBQ Chicken
Here are what other Mamas are saying:
“I started using your recipes a few months ago when I went back to work after my son was born. I have saved so much time and energy! It is so nice to take one day ever couple of weeks and freeze meals away and then the day of drop a bag in the crock pot. Instead of worrying about what I’m making when I get home at 5:30, I know that I just need to prep a side and then dinner is already done. Thank you so much! I did order your eCookBook and I am looking forward to printing the labels and trying the Paella!”
“I used to think the slow cooker was only good for a pot roast. These recipes are so creative, and delicious! I LOVE that I can prepare 10 days of complete, nutritious meals in about 2 hours. I now have the freedom to go out and have fun with my toddler knowing a home-cooked meal will be waiting for us at home. Thanks, Stephanie!”
“We have now gotten to try all of your classic recipes at least once and we are huge fans! I made them all one day when I was 34 weeks pregnant and then had my daughter at 36 weeks. We (five of us) have been living on them and I still have 4 more bags to go! Looking forward to the new recipes and my next big cooking day!”
“I just ordered your cookbook and I must say, your recipes have changed my life!! I have a 6 month old son and a very busy work schedule, I love that I can come home and have a wonderful dinner (and lunches for the next day) ready for my husband and I with so little clean up. I deal with a lot of guilt about not spending as much time with my son as I would like to because of work, but now I’m able to spend so much more QUALITY time with him in the evenings. Thank you for writing this cookbook, but also thank you for giving me more time with my family!”
“I just wanted to let you know – I LOVE LOVE LOVE your e-cook book! Tried 2 different recipes already and… OMG! Delicious! Thank you so much for saving my time, our money and our health! Can’t wait for what you can come up with next! :):) Have a wonderful weekend!”
“I am a new follower and I just wanted to say THANK YOU for creating recipes for the freezer that use real food! Baby #2 is arriving in 10 weeks or so and I’ve been wanting to get on-board with the whole “freezer meal” trend right now (I’ve got several friends who love it) but I was having a hard time finding recipes that would work for the way my family eats… and then I came across your blog (via Pinterest and then through another blog)! I’m a happy girl and SO looking forward to preparing and then tasting the delicious recipes you’ve created! You’ve made my life (and current stress level) so much easier! I think my husband will be thanking you as well as we get through the next few months of Baby prep. ”
“Just ordered your cookbook! I can’t wait to make my shopping list and get started. Baby #4 is on it’s way, and I’m stocking the freezer. So excited that these are truly healthy recipes!!”
“So is it divine intervention or did I get jinxed…? A day or two ago I put your ‘healing chick soup’ into the fridge to thaw. made it today and I now have a 101.2 fever! lol. It is yummy and makes my throat feel better, sure hope it works on the rest of me!”
“I love your ebook as well! A life changer!!!”
“They really are great. We make the carrot/ginger soup at least once a week and my baby girl gobbles it up ”
“Life changer. I know that’s a bold statement, but supper is what holds our family together, and now on busy days that I haven’t planned for…there is always something last minute in the morning to do about it. Woke up with no power today (and haven’t had any all day..) I had planned to throw the frozen bbq chicken in crock pot. With no power, I could of easily just blown that plan off and planned take-out, but I took the time to drive my crock pot to my bff this morning and have it cook in her kitchen all day. Now she is intrigued as she’s been tasting it all day and I am sure will buy the eCookbook!”
“I lost 8 lbs the last 2 weeks with these wonderful meals. I’m so excited because the baby weight from my second son just would not come off. I have hope now.”
Thanks again for your support, it means the world to me!
