Tips on How to Freeze Your Food

Freezing your leftovers is a great way to plan ahead and save time on meal prep on the nights that you’re too busy to cook. Not only does freezing your food help prevent food waste, it can extend the life of your valuable leftovers and make a positive impact on your day-to-day life when it comes to meal planning. You’re going to want to keep your freezer well stocked, because freezer food is perfect during the moments that you don’t feel like cooking and just want to thaw some leftovers.

Freezer Food Dos:

  • Label items with a description of the dish, the suggested serving size and date before storing.
  • Squeeze any excess air out of your freezer bags before sealing them.
  • Freeze leftovers in individual portions for easy access.
  • Line your baking dish with foil before assembling your casserole (or another dish). When finished baking, wrap the leftover casserole in the foil and freeze in a large freezer bag.
  • Leave at least one inch at the top of soup containers to allow for expansion while freezing.
  • Keep a list of what’s in your freezer with dates and each item’s shelf life.
  • Consider safety factors, like how long the food has been at room temperature before freezing.

Freezer Food Don’ts:

  • Choose containers that are too large for your food.
  • Fill your freezer with baking dishes.
  • Completely fill soup containers to the top.
