Easy Freezer Meals to Prepare for After Baby
Updated: Jan 6
One thing I knew I wanted to do in my third trimester was to cook easy freezer meals to prepare for after the baby arrived. Especially since we don't live near our family who would more than likely have helped with bringing over some food while we figure out life as a family of three if we did live closer.
I took some of my favorite recipes (and a couple from other blogs) that I knew would freeze well and started cooking!
The Recipes I Used For Freezer Meals
My husband and I curated this recipe together. We each combined our favorite breakfast ingredients to make the most delicious breakfast burritos. These freeze perfectly and make the perfect grab & go breakfast.
Pork Tenderloin Carnitas
The Pork Tenderloin Carnitas recipe I used is actually from one of my favorite bloggers - Kelsie Brown Blog. She also has a whole blog post about freezer meals if you're looking for even more recipe ideas!
This recipe made enough for two crockpot dump meals. It was an easy and affordable meal!

Smoky Chipotle Turkey and Sweet Potato Chili
Soups and chilis always freeze so well, so when I came across this recipe from the Peas And Crayons blog I knew I would have to add it to my collection of easy freezer meals to prepare for after baby.

Having cooked chicken can save you so much time with meal prep. I like to use this chicken for salads, enchiladas, tacos, etc. Having the meat cooked saves a big step for whatever recipe you decide to use it in.
One-Pot Sausage And Sweet Potato Chowder
Easy to make, easy to clean up, easy to freeze! This recipe is a dream and just as delicious as it sounds.

Kielbasa Sausage & Veggies
This is exactly what it sounds like! So for the recipe, just cut up some kielbasa sausage and vegetables, toss them in olive oil, season with salt & pepper and bake for about 35-40 minutes at 400 degrees (or until veggies are cooked). To freeze for later, just put the cut-up kielbasa and veggies in a freezer baggie, and when you're ready to make it, thaw & add the oil and seasoning.
So now you know how easy preparing for baby with freezer meals is and you have all the recipes to get started, what are you waiting for?! ;)
I hope this helps you prepare for your little one and helps you spend more time with your baby and less time in the kitchen once they arrive!
