I am 30 weeks and 3 days pregnant! Now is a good time for us to begin preparations for frozen foods to keep through at least a month after Baby Squiggles is born- into January or February.
We will store food in BPA-free tupperware type of containers and ziploc bags.
Containers go in the chest freezer in our laundry room (which is primarily for breastmilk)
We will not have to cook or do any other food prep when we are busy and tired with our little son- cheaper and healthier than relying on take out!!
We will re-heat using the microwave or toaster oven.
Here are our ideas so far for yummy vegan foods that freeze well:
Veggie and Mushroom Risotto
Butternut Squash Risotto
Veggie Stir Fry
Variety of Soups: Split Pea Soup, Potato and Grains Soup, Black Bean Soup, hopefully more
Plain Brown Rice (to add to some of these dishes or canned beans)
Pesto (to throw on vegan pizzas or pasta)
Frozen Bananas (for smoothies)
Granola Bars/Energy Bars
Roasted Chickpeas (I eat these like candy!)
...and plenty of Vegan Ice Cream WITH Agave!!
What would you add to this list?
I also have an upcoming post on Smoothie Popsicles for Labor
