Find out how Freezer Meals are the Easy Dinner Solution for Working Moms. Enjoy a slow cooked meal on the table after a long day, you deserve that!
As a mom who works full-time, there’s a constant juggling act that occurs every.single.day. There never seems to be enough hours in the day, does there? In between work responsibilities, family commitments, functions at your kids schools, cooking, cleaning, laundry, yard work…the list goes on and on. This is no news flash for working moms, it is just part of life. We are all busy, busy, busy balancing work and home life. Times have changed the past decades and upwards of 70% of moms are now in the workforce.
Working Moms Mean Business
Recently I enjoyed an e-book titled Mom Guilt, have you heard of it? Allow me to fill you in a bit. Along with all of the obligations that come with motherhood and working, usually something else comes hand in hand…working mom guilt and boy oh boy, it is no fun.
Within Mom Guilt (PS-it is nice to do something for yourself, ebooks are highly recommended by this mom) there’s stories of working moms in all levels of their careers who are living the “pull” all working moms face. The tug of war between career and family life. Often we only hear the negative about this all too common scenario. You know what I’m referring to: the harried mom who feels she isn’t getting it all done, she’s tired, she’s doubting herself, she’s ready to throw in the towel. The stories of working moms in Mom Guilt are inspiring. These working moms have successfully battled the challenges of conquering their own personal mom guilt. Conquering this guilt is something that is an ongoing battle for myself, but I know I’m definitely not alone.
What I have also recently enjoyed are the BBVA Compass Moms Mean Business Podcasts. Don’t you love podcasts? There’s a variety of great information available to listen to at your leisure. I’ve taken away a lot of great tips from the Mompreneurs episode and have actually shared information from the Women in Technology episode with my daughter who studying for a STEM career in college. Sharing good information is always a great idea! You really must give the podcasts a listen, so much information.
Now down to the nitty-gritty of what helps keeps me and loads of fellow working moms organized…FREEZER MEALS! Yes, you’ve probably seen a post or two through the years on Who Needs A Cape? about freezer meals, we love them. As busy working moms ourselves they are truly a sanity-saver and we cannot recommend them enough. You simply: shop, prep, bag, freeze & slow cook your way to easy mealtimes!
Trust me, spending a few hours or as little as ONE HOUR on the weekend prepping bags for the freezer will give you so much joy. Joy when you have dinner on the table without chaos or delay. Simply take one of your frozen bags out of the freezer and place into your refrigerator at night. The next morning dump the contents into your slow cooker and turn on…doesn’t get much easier than that. We have freezer meal sets that will give you anywhere from 7 Meals in 1 Hour to 40 Meals in 4 Hours, all family friendly and easy to prep.
