Need more prep-ahead freezer meal ideas - but healthy ones!

CarrieWas218 | Feb 25, 2011 11:24 PM

I am single and on a recent health kick to lose some weight. In the past, I have relied on some pre-prepared Trader Joe's meals, eating out a lot, and heavier freezer meals like stew, chili, lasagna and other pasta dishes, and the like.

For two weeks, I have broken away from eating useless carbs (no bread or pasta) and have been eating mostly fruits and vegetables with occasional fish and whole grains.

I now have a ton of vegetable-based frozen soup in my freezer and other than an occasional stir-fry, I am at a loss on other things I can start making.

I specifically want freezer items because the idea of chopping and preparing fresh vegetables every day for lunch and dinner is becoming a time-suck. I need some ideas of make-ahead, large portion HEALTHY meals that I can either nurse for a day or two or freezer in portions.

Thanks for the help!
