How to Freeze Those Keto Meals Best!

  • Use bags and containers that are designated for the freezer for best results! I prefer glass containers myself, but on the other hand bags are easier to squeeze out the excess air. So I use a mix of glass containers and Ziploc Freezer bags.
  • Allow the food to chill completely in the refrigerator before freezing. This makes for less ice crystals.
  • For small items (like meatballs, chicken wings, keto cookies and fat bombs) freeze while spread out on a baking sheet, then transfer to a freezer bag once solid. This prevents the pieces from clumping.
  • Try not to over crowd your freezer.  I know, I know! But the more air flow the better!
  • Label and date your food.
  • Freeze in smaller portions when possible. This makes foods freeze faster and reduces the need to thaw more food than needed.
  • Take a good look inside your freezer whenever you are about to go grocery shopping.  You will probably shorten your grocery list!
