Today I’m throwing you a party!

And, we’re celebrating all fall and winter long, with a delicious round-up of gluten-free healthy freezer meals from my food blogger and dietitian friends.

Together, we’re bringing you 45 deliciously healthy freezer meals to help you reclaim dinner time, and de-stress over the busy holiday season.

What could be better than coming home from a long day of work, or shuttling the kids to and from sports and after-school-activities, to a piping hot bowl of chili, or a cup of luscious lentil soup?

Maybe a foot massage from your significant other??? Hint, hint if you’re reading this Mr. Spicy!

This can be your reality when you defrost one of these healthy freezer meals, and pair it with my super easy “Best Rolls Ever” aka “Pao de Quejo” aka “Brazilain Cheese Puffs” aka “Gluten-Free Crack Rolls” {Yes, they are THAT good.}, and some fresh fruit on the side.

BEST ever Brazilian Cheese Bread!!!

Dinner is served!

Note: I’ve divided the recipes in to slow cooker soups, slow cooker stew/meat/chili, non-slow cooker soup, non-slow cooker stew/meat/chili, and I have also indicated vegetarian recipes with “veg” and vegan recipe with “V” so you can find exactly what you’re looking for.

  1. Love, love, love this roundup! Even though it’s still too warm to go all out on soups and chilis (sigh…) I plan to start making 1-2 new recipes a week to fill the freezer for ski season so we can come home to plenty of reheat and eat options.

    Thanks for including our Slow Cooker Chicken Chili Verde recipe!!

  2. What an amazing roundup EA! So many recipes I want to try – I love making recipes I can freeze (much to my husband’s chagrin – he’s not as much of a fan!). First up I still need to make those Pao de Quejo of yours! Thanks for including my corn tortilla soup with black beans!
