    I was tempted to switch over to go lower but they charge stupid money for food I can make myself.

    So, I have decided to make a load of ready meals for the freezer and some low carb soups all from atkins induction.

    So any idea for freezer friendly dinners would be welcomed!!

    cheeseburger pie!

    i often freeze some of each days meal for taking to work, so really just the same as you are cooking now.

    hope this tactic works for you, its a good idea.

    I made a quick cheesburger pie yesterday - fried mince, added some chilli flakes, poured some single cream over, added grated cheese - all done in 10 mins :) Imagine it would freeze well.

    Don't forget the recipe thread - loads of slow cooker recipes that would also freeze well.

    I'm also about to post a tuna mornay recipe that I've modifed for low carb (so no pasta or flour) - haven't actually tried it yet, will do it tomorrow.

    My daily meal planning has gone ratshit since I retired, still I'm not gaining, I suspect after all these years LC eating is ingrained in my psyche Jools :)

    Hi Jools - I take this approach as well! My poor kitchen looks like a cyclone, but I have no excuses as to not have something to eat!!

    Good luck with your bake-a-thon!!

    OK. Here are the meals I have for the next 2 weeks, according to induction rules and based on go lower

    Breakfasts: lizzis granola (not induction but 5g per serving and very close to the go lower breakfast) Day break bars for the days I miss my alarm and egg and bacon for the days I am off work

    Lunches: Pea and pancetta soup, chicken and veg soup. Italian meats and salad and tuna salads

    Dinners: chilli, lasagne (courgette instead of pasta), chicken curry, meat balls, keema curry, italian casserole and I am trying to find a recipe for beef casserole that is low carb

    Snacks: SF jelly, atkins crackers w/cheese and ham, pork crunch

    As much of this will be made in advance and all labelled with days so I have NO excuse to not stick to this. Almost the same principle as go lower but a fraction of the price.
