Recently my Fiancé has decided she wanted to do an Advocare 24 day challenge, after some heavy persuading I talked her out of it and into something a bit healthier than powders and pills.
In turn she needs a structure meal plan but there are nights I can not cook for her from scratch. So I came up with a simple meal of boiled chicken breast in a sweet chili sauce over "instant" white rice cooked with diluted chicken broth and bagged frozen stir fry vegetables.
I made roughly 9 servings of each component of the meal, only to realize I do not own enough containers to store them in. So I resorted to plastic bags (ziplock style). and froze the chicken in 4 oz individual servings and combined 1 cup rice with 1 cup vegetables into a separate bag and froze it flat in the freezer ( standard home freezer) .
The next day I re-heated one "meal", placed all the contents of the bag on a ceramic plate and microwaved until hot.
Overall: the food was... dare I say "OK" but I could tell it was not as fresh as the day I made it. I'm thinking there maybe a better way to do this, and I was wondering if anyone has experience with something like this and keeping the food fresh(er)?
