When the weather warms up, the desire to slave away in a steaming hot kitchen cools down. There are walks to take, sports to play, and longer nights to enjoy — even the most dedicated home cooks find themselves avoiding the kitchen at all costs. But that’s OK, because you don’t need to be hunched over the stove every night to put a meal on the table come spring and summer. If you prepare ahead, you can actually have a lot of your meals already taken care of, and then you can stay outside extra late around dinner time, knowing that all you have to do once your hunger strikes is warm up your pre-made meals in the oven or microwave.

The beauty of healthy, homemade freezer meals is that that they are cost-effective, cut down on cooking time, and help ensure that laziness does not eventually translate into a drive to the pick-up window. Preparing meals ahead of time and then freezing them guarantees that you won’t ever have an excuse for fast food, and it’ll also likely save your money and sanity when all’s said and done.

Freezer meals aren’t only reserved for women getting ready to have a baby. Though those are the people they’re especially known for appeasing, they really are useful for anyone, and that’s why we’re highlighting six meals that you should put in your freezer food arsenal for summer. Before it gets too nice out, cook up these dishes and store them in your freezer. It’s basically a modern-day form of hibernation, and when you’re chowing down on your delicious, pre-made meals after only arriving home five minutes earlier, you surely won’t regret this decision.
