Back in October, I posted a menu with a month's worth of freezer meals. You can read about that here. However, a lot of people noted (rightfully so!) that it is an awful lot of work. So, I created a scaled-down alternative. This will give you a week's worth of meals, rather than a whole month. There's an added bonus, too: these meals require no cooking on your prep day. Each meal is cooked in the crock pot the day you want to serve it for dinner. Like the larger menu, all of these recipes are Whole30 compliant.
I did not include breakfast or lunch, but you can feel free to add on from the full OAMC freezer menu. In particular, the meat and veggie mini-frittatas are a great way of using up any meat and vegetables that are left over after you do all your other prep.
This menu makes five hearty dinners with four servings each. You may have enough leftovers to stretch it to seven days for a family of four. Or, you may only be cooking for one or two people, and thus have enough for two weeks!
Instructions for your big cooking day are available in this Google Doc.
The grocery list for the entire menu is available at this Google Doc spreadsheet.
