When I had Joshua my mother in law flew in about 2 weeks before he was born. She helped us get organized, get the rooms ready and most of all cooked and froze about 12 meals for us. It was great.
As I am becoming a little more domestic or should I say as I am hanging out with some domestic friends like www.betterlivingessentials.com mom, Mary Simmons. I have learned that you can actually prep up to 20 freezer meals including shopping and cooking all in one day.
Really… with the use of a crockpot and freezer there are ways to prepare for times when you won’t be able to cook way in advance for many days. It involves planning and preparation but it is doable.
Here is a video tip about freezer food. Go to my website to view it.

Busy Pregnant Momma Prep Tip: Preparing and Freezing Food
Preparing meals ahead of time is ideal for a busy pregnant momma and any momma who has young children. It sounds difficult but it is possible. There are books devoted to ways to prepare, cook and freeze meals.
In this video Busy Pregnant Momma Prep Tip – Freezer and Food, I will show you how I am preparing meals for my family during this busy season of my life.
Here are six things you need to get started:
One: A meal plan that includes favorite foods, balanced diet and easy to freeze food.
Two: Shopping list that includes healthy ingredients and enough ingredients for preparation. Combination of ingredients and buying meat, vegetables and other ingredients in bulk can save you time and money.
Three: Make sure you have space in your freezer and that your freezer is in workable condition.
Four: Get functional containers of all sizes for storing your prepared food. In the video I share which containers I use to freeze my food.
Five: Have the whole family or good friends involved in preparation, cooking and freezing process.
Six: Keep all your prepared food safe, labeled and packaged well. You don’t want to consume stale or contaminated food.
