Homeschool Review - MyFreezEasy Meal Planning

Hashtags: #hsreviews #freezeasy #freezermeals #5dollardinners #freezercooking, freezer cooking meal plan; freezer meal prep; freezer cooking plan


My dream is to have a personal chef, because when it's time to eat at our house, I get exhausted weeding through what each picky eater will or won't eat and what is available that won't take more than several hours to prepare and bake, so I was thrilled to get a chance to review the MyFreezEasy.com Freezer Meal Plan Membership from MyFreezEasy. I received the premium annual membership for review.

What is the MyFreezEasy?

If you are not familiar with prepare-ahead and freeze meal planning, find out anything you want to know about MyFreezEasy on their FAQ page. In the meantime, I will explain how it works and what I received for review.

Really - it's true. It doesn't take a whole lot of time to assemble several meals, put them in your freezer and be ready to eat when you need them. 
The creator of this MyFreezEasy Meal Planning idea is Erin Chase. She has been featured on Rachael Ray, Good Morning America, The Today Show, and The View and made the process easy. Here is how it works:
You Select your meal plan from the site
You shop with the generated shopping list (there are 4 different types of lists based on your shopping style)
You prep alongside Erin Chase by watching her step-by-step cooking and assembly videos or printing out the assembly notes to follow (This process is intended to take less than an hour to prep 10 meals)
You freeze the meals
You thaw and cook
You EAT with your famiily!
Her shopping and assembly lists are presented in different styles for you to choose which one works best for you.
There are several membership levels - Choose the basic monthly plan, basic annual plan, premium monthly plan or the premium annual plan. I received the premium annual plan level which allows you to swap out meals you don't want for meals you prefer and have a hand at customizing your meals, adjust serving sizes, and adding to favorites.

Everything you see onscreen is able to be printed for hands-on instruction as well, and you can have everything emailed to you as well.
The reason the plans are set up the way they are is because Erin Chase has taken the process of meal planning and put it down to a science of fast and easy assembly. She does this by combining ingredients you can prep together and then separate to use in different recipes.

How Did We Use It?

Several years ago when I was first married and had time on my hands to actually meal plan, I found out about cooking meals ahead of time and freezing them, so that they are ready to go when you need them. A few years later, my hubby sent me to a nearby grocery store who had cooking classes on preparing meals to freeze...  Fast forward to three kids later and absolutely no time on my hands plus two very picky eaters in the bunch, and mealtime has become disastrous! I was excited to give this MyFreezEasy Meal Planning a try.

I received a premium membership to MyFreezEasy. The first thing I did was explore the website and watch the introductory videos that explain EVERYTHING! Really, this is not as overwhelming as it might sound to someone who has never tried it before. I then, went to look over the monthly meals to select or swap out any that my family would prefer more with some I knew were not going to work with my crew. Honestly, this was the hardest part - Yes, even harder than actually shopping, preparing, freezing, thawing, and cooking the meal. Why? Because, I have two children who are just plain picky eaters. However, they aren't picky in the normal sense of the word, but rather, prefer everything they do eat to be just plain without any kind of sauces. They do tolerate some seasoning, but that's limited too. Our family doesn't do pork and we haven't gone to the complete gluten-free route, so my choices were pretty much all beef or all chicken with the ability to swap out what I chose. I liked what I saw on the beef options the most. So, my next step was choosing the individual menus that would work for my entire family. I selected the recipes that looked the best to me and easily created a meal plan through drag and drop. 

What Did We Think?

I am particularly excited about the Frito pie and the Easy Lasagna Bake and am excited to try the chicken and slow cooker recipes as well.

This is amazing! Though, my picky eaters make it more challenging than any menu planning needs to be, this system provides everything you need to cook and freeze several meals in no time. These meals are then ready when you need them on busy days to just thaw and pop in the oven. The program is set up to provide everything you need from choosing your menu selections to generating a shopping list to giving you access to step-by-step cooking instructional videos. What a wonderful idea! If I can't have a personal chef, I am happy to at least make meal planning so much easier by just spending a little bit of time at the beginning of each month to prepare and freeze our meals,
