Become a
“Mix It Up Master”

“My sweet spot for freezer cooking is preparing for meals for 2-3 weeks that are a nice mix of easy recipes with dump and go ingredients, as well as some of our favorite baked and stovetop meals that require a little more effort. I like to mix it up just enough to challenge myself, and my family, to try new things!”

Your Next Goals:

    • This is a Once A Month Meals made meal plan made up of 5 “Mixed” recipes that will double to make 10 freezer meals. These meals will use a variety of cook and prep types. For example, stovetop, baked, slow cooker and more.
  2. One Custom “Mixed” Mini Meal Plan that you create of your own!
    • This is a meal plan you get to customize that is made up of 5 “Mixed” recipes that will double to make 10 freezer meals.These meals will use a variety of cook and prep types. For example, stovetop, baked, slow cooker and more.

Your Next Action Items!

1. Pick A “Mixed” Mini Meal Plan!

2. Create Your Own “Mixed” Meal Plan!

  • Create your own “Mixed” Mini Meal Plan by choosing only 5 recipes of any cooking type.
    • We recommend that you choose no more than 2 baked recipes on your cooking day. We do this to speed up your cooking time. Multiple baked items take much longer cook back to back. You can filter specifically for “Cooking Day Cook Types” on our recipes page.
    • This is also a GREAT time to go back and visit your “favorite recipes” list. Identify those that are NOT “Dump and Go” Recipes and add those to your meal plan, or try some new recipes!
  • Schedule a day to cook to keep yourself accountable!
  • Follow the My Freezer Meal Plan Checklist

3. Favorite Recipes You Like!

Did you try something new to you? If AFTER trying each meal, you or your family like it, head on over and favorite that recipe so you remember later.

4. Share Your Experience!

Share (experience, cooking day, pictures, etc) with us on Instagram or Tiktok! (#oamm, #onceamonthmeals)
