Here's a link:

http://www.allergyfreefoods.com/storefinder.asp

Deliciously Free is the brand name. It's a new regional family business. They used to have a website that they were working on but I couldn't find it. I buy them at a heathfood store called Rainbow Blossom.

The meatballs have a sweet and sour type sauce and I serve them with steamed rice and simple veg. like broccoli. If I'm having company I might add chinese chicken salad. I send the meatballs and meatloaf for school lunches as well as for quick meals at home.

Mamaw, Our girl Missy is just the opposite. We call her our princess. All she does is look cute and sleep!

I'm mostly cooking for one so I make up a bunch of my proteins ahead (and the sides that can be frozen) and then freeze everything in single serving sizes.

In my freezer I have:

Cooked

Brown rice

Anasazi beans

Chicken breasts with a variety of seasonings/flavors (i.e. lemon rosemary or cilantro lime)

Beef roast

Brisket

Hamburger patties (beef and turkey)

Meatballs (beef and turkey)

Turkey tenderloins

Browned ground turkey for Italian dishes (seasoned with italian seasonings)

Browned ground turkey for Mexican dishes (seasoned with cumin, garlic, chili powder)

Then I have uncooked proteins and a few other staples like:

Rice tortillas

Turkey hot dogs

Frozen peas

Meal prep is pretty easy when you have these things already cooked, frozen, and ready to go. I just thaw and heat a protein serving, steam or roast a fresh veggie, bake a starch side like a potato or winter squash, and throw together a salad.

With my ground cooked meat I throw the Italian seasoned version into bottled marinara sauce which makes a yummy meat sauce to serve with Tinkayada fettucini.

The Mexican seasoned version I use for taco salads, burritos, tacos, etc.

Soups are super easy, I add a cooked protein to chicken broth, chop or grate fresh vegetables like carrots, onions, zuchini, etc, throw in some cooked brown rice....in about 20-30 minutes you have made the best homemeade soup!

one thing i do is freeze extra broth (from the can, or homemade). made hamburger soup last night with extra beef broth that i had in the freezer. just pour it into an ice cube tray and freeze. once solid, i usually dump the cubes into a ziploc :) also very helpful for making gravies.
