What Makes Us Different Than Other Meal Plans?

All our recipes are freezer friendly. 

We provide you with over 6,000 freezer meal recipes that need no adaptation! All recipes come with instructions for freezing, thawing, and serving.

You choose the batch and serving size you want. 

We scale recipes to the exact serving size you need – no multiplying and dividing each individual recipe. You can freezer cook for as many people as you want with just one click!

We help you make time for what matters most. 

You invest time and money into your cooking day, which allows you freedom throughout the month to enjoy life.

We make cooking a week, 2 weeks, or a month of meals doable. 

You choose recipes and we organize them efficiently for freezer cooking. Freezer cooking with Once a Month Meals means you don’t have to figure out how to cook the meals all at once on your own! Freezer cooking is achievable when you have the resources and support you need.

We provide a community where you can receive encouragement. 

You aren’t alone! Chat with staff LIVE. Connect and share with other freezer cooks. Get the encouragement you need to get started, and the accountability to continue in your journey to more intentional living.
