We're a busy family and juggling a baby while trying to make dinner can be difficult. To help us eat healthier and be able to prepare meals quickly, I freeze meals. Buy groceries in bulk when they're on sale and then spend an afternoon preparing a few weeks' worth of meals. Cut up all the veggies and meats for each recipe. Put these in freezer bags and label with recipe name, date, and instructions on how to complete meal (ie. Cook in slow cooker for 5 hours on low with 1 cup of chicken broth added.) Its so nice to dump a bag into the slow cooker and have a tasty home cooked meal in a few hours.
