I know what it feels like to be a tired mum at dinner time lacking the energy or motivation to cook dinner for the family. I don’t have a job outside of my home so I cannot even imagine how you working mums (aka Super Mums) do it.
You can have kitchen cupboards stocked with all the clean eating essentials, a fridge packed with meat and vegetables and the most amazing meal plan but sometimes that lack of energy can send even the most prepared person to the nearest takeaway.
It’s not just mums who suffer either, (although I do feel that the added responsibility of cooking for children is difficult for any parent or guardian) anyone trying to stick to good eating habits can loose motivation and energy, especially as work becomes more demanding and a takeaway feels like a well deserved treat.
Recently I have been working on stocking up my freezer with meals. Whether I make double the amount of dinner and freeze half for another day or have an hour or two in the kitchen cooking up meals specifically for the freezer, these meals are saving me on the days when life gets in the way either because of a lack of energy or a lack of time.
Here is a list of my favourite clean eating freezer meals:
