This weekend me and the wife decided to stock up the freezer. It has been a while since we made a trip to sams club where the goal was to really stock up. Normally our freezer is filled with some good bulk items and food that we can prepare into a healthy meal pretty quickly. But recently we noticed that we were missing some things and so off to sams we went.
Now if you don’t belong to sams yes I suggest you give it a shot. I think it is well worth it especially if you have a chest freezer. So here is a quick run down of what we stocked up on.. please excuse some of the less then perfect choices
Salmon. This was the main motivating factor that started the “lets go to sams club” talk. We ended up buying a large bag of salmon filets and a large box of salmon burgers. I really like both of them. Salmon burgers are awesome. They take only a few minutes to cook. They are loaded with protein and very healthy fats. Same thing really for the filets. Also they are cheap. Not gonna lie it was a factor. Why not save up. I know there are ‘better’ brands but I just needed a jump start on eating more seafood.
Tilapia. Well while we were in the seafood section we grabbed a bag of talipia. My favorite Tilapia dish is pretty simple. Take the fish put it on parchment paper and then shred a whole bunch of veggies and throw it on the fish, add some butter, wrap it all up into a pouch/ pocket so it is steams up. It is awesome.
Ground Turkey. They sell bulk packs of lean ground turkey. We use this for a lot of different dishes but recently its been turkey burgers and meat loaf. When you use lean ground turkey it is super healthy.
Lunch Meat / Reduced fat cheese. Okay starting to stray a bit but these were purchased just to help me lose weight and save money. I know there are better choices but for now this will be a staple lunch for me.
Chicken sausage. Like I said before. Its grilling season in Scranton. They have a bunch of great flavors. Low calorie, High protein and very quick and tasty. You cant beat that for a quick dinner when there is not a lot of time. Basically two times a week at my house my wife cooks a very quick dinner or we have left overs so these work great on those days. Also not a bad lunch once they are cooked.
Frozen Chicken Breasts. Why not. Large quantity, cheap and can be made into a ton of great meals. I hope I don’t have to say this but chicken breasts are super healthy and super low in calories.
That is basically all we got. It will last us a while. It really filled up the freezer and will make life a lot easier for us during the next month or so. It also makes our weekly shopping much easier on the wallet.
