Meal prepping is a time-saver in theory, but it can be hard work! It's easy to get overwhelmed with trying to make up a ton of food at once and portion it off into perfect, balanced meals. Here are some ideas for foods to keep stocked in your freezer, based on different dietary needs you and your family members may have.

Gluten-Free + Dairy-Free

11 Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Crockpot Freezer Meal Prep Sessions

"During the 'prep session,' all you do is combine the meat, vegetables, sauces, and spices in baggies and freeze. (That’s right – there’s no cooking required ahead of time!)"

10 Gluten-Free + Dairy-Free Freezer Meals

"I prepped 20 meals before my son arrived and it was the best time I could have possibly spent getting ready for the baby. We had gluten-free and dairy-free home cooked meals ready for the first month and a half of his life. All I had to do was cook the food, most of which was in a slow cooker, so it was very little effort."

7 Days of Gluten-Free + Dairy-Free Recipes + Challenge

"One really important reason to cut out dairy and gluten from your diet, at least for a little bit, is to find out whether or not you have an intolerance to those foods. Dairy and gluten are two of the most common food allergens, but when we’re eating them on a regular basis we’re not really noticing it that much."

Vegetarian + Vegan

Vegan Meal Prep Ideas

"When I meal prep, freezer prep is my favorite. I set aside a day with my mom and sisters; then, we prep 100s of single-serving meal options. We like to make things that can be thawed one at a time to serve however many people are eating."
