CILANTRO LIME CHICKEN: http://bit.ly/2p5fWSL
2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast, cubed
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
2 cups chopped zucchini
1 cup red onion, diced
16 oz bag frozen corn
15 oz can black beans
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup broth
½ cup cilantro, chopped
2 limes, juiced
1 tsp cumin
salt & pepper, to taste

Add all ingredients to your slow cooker or crockpot and cover.
Cook on low heat for 6 hours, until chicken is tender

TO FREEZE: Add all ingredients to a freezer bag. Mix and close. Store up to 3 months.
Thaw out the bag in the fridge for 24 hours before making.

CORN CHOWDER: http://bit.ly/2oIhVj6
2 tsp oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
1 white/gold potato, peeled and cubed
2 ribs celery, chopped

16 oz frozen corn
½ tsp paprika
½ tsp dried thyme

In a large pot over medium heat, sauté onion and garlic in oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Add potatoes, celery, carrots, and bell pepper to the pot. Cook until potatoes have softened, around 5 minutes.
Add broth, coconut milk, corn, paprika, and thyme. Stir to integrate.
Bring to a boil, cover, and turn down the heat. Allow to simmer for 15 minutes, until potatoes are fork tender.
Transfer to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth, or use an immersion blender.
Adjust seasonings to taste. Allow to cool.

  1. Could you do the corn chowder in a crock pot. Just sauté the garlic and onions and then add to slow cooker?

  2. watching the intro
    Alyssia is so goofy! 😂 I love it.

  3. The opening was a BIG mood. 👌

  4. LOVE IT!>>>ur2.pl/1064 (You cannot set it to start at a certain time but that's not a deal breaker for me). You can set it to run on HIGH, LOW for X hours which is really nice! I love the locking handles too!

  5. As I don’t have a slow-cooker I would love it if those meals were to be seperate because they seem yummy and I can’t make it 😅
    I love the roll-up lasagna idea, I’m gonna make that one! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Love that 2 of these are veggie/vegan friendly, especially like the roll ups! More veggie freezer meals please!!! 🙂

  7. The cilantro is labeled as parsley.

  8. Could you freeze the lasagna rolls in separate containers, and heat it up it the microwave? #imthelaziest

  9. That corn chowder is the absolute best. It's helped my brother who has defacia (a digestive disorder that won't let you process fibrous foods like most veggies) incorporate more veggies into his diet. And it's great for budget meals when things are tight.

  10. I love all of these ideas ! they are so helpful!

  11. Great video editing and recipes

  12. With fall now here, could we get another one of these? (specifically more slow cooker meals!)

  13. I'm due in October so I'm very grateful for these ideas! I don't know how much time I'll have to cook! Lol

  14. I adore freezer meals more more more :3

  15. isn't lasagna fattening

  16. You're videos have such good quality, I love how you make the salt and pepper a ying yang symbol

  17. hi mind over munch I love your videos. as far as the the lasagna recipe do have another one with ground beef or turkey

  18. We love this video, the recipes, the editing, your ' salt and pep ' and most of all; that dog 😹

  19. These are awesome! I'm sad I'm so new to discovering your channel. Looks like I've got a lot of catching up to do

  20. Enjoyed this video a lot! FYI, the image showing all of the ingredients for Cilantro-Lime Chicken has the cilantro labeled as "parsley".

  21. I need a screenshot of the cilantro lime chicken 😋

  22. Not sure if anyone has asked this question, but how did you make the salt and pepper into the Yin Yang circle? It looks so cool!!! ✨

  23. I adore all your videos.  What wonderful ideas.

  24. Is there a place to get written out recipes?

  25. Now that corn chowder looks so savory! I never thought about packing the fresh ingredients like that. That truly can come in handy. Thanks girl I will try that! i am going to be at the grocery store all day!

  26. I really wish I could smell those Spinach Lasagna Roll ups through the screen! # Drooling! Much quicker than a standard Lasagna too and already portioned!

  27. the intro looks like my house coming home with 3 daughters and they all want me to "look at this!" while "I listen to this"! was that you on the counter too?! Great editing!

  28. New Subbie here and I am in love !!!

  29. you are so amazing,i really love your recipes. kiss from Québec

  30. Hi I am looking for smoothie recipes that can be blended and frozen that will thaw and be safe to drink. I like smoothies for lunch but don't have a blender at work. Hope you can help.

  31. Chilli con carne is also a really good one for the freezer, and it's cheap. You can even make the rice beforehand, just add a bit of water if you heat the rice in the microwave, because otherwise it gets kinda dry. I usually take my lump of frozen rice and "rinse" it so that it's wet when I dump it in the microwave.

  32. Happy to report I am enjoying my pre-portioned frozen lasagna roll, after leaving work at 8pm.
    You are pretty much a best friend I never met.

  33. Love this – love the intro!

  34. Loved the intro !! how ironic Im watching your video and wearing a red shirt similar to the one your wearing on video and this video was posted on my Birthday April 6 lol !!

  35. easiest crock pot meal for me is just chucking a whole chicken in there for 4-6 hours on high. then i just add seasoning/sauces that match with the meal i want to make. and whole chickens are much cheaper per pound than chicken pieces

  36. I just discovered your channel and I LOVE it!!!!

  37. I know you don't eat meat but could you possibly do Paleo/Whole30 meal prep ideas?

    Thanks

  38. Could you make a video about sauces without tomatoes sometime? I am changing my diet to be healthy, but all the sauces I see contain them — and I can't eat them. It would be great to not have to eat dry food haha.

  39. TFS. That opening though….Was awesome!! At my house, it would be kids running around causing havoc. I love freezer meals. I try to meal prep for a month. SO convenient.

  40. Are the recipes supposed to pop up when you click the links? All I get is a blank tab. Anyone else?

  41. Three freezer recipes that I can see myself making….and then actually eating them later!!! Love all of the different flavors and variety in the meals!

  42. Hey I see you have lunches, meals for health conscious people what about a Bento Box for diabetics ?

  43. Alyssia, please make another 'What I eat in a day', I really enjoyed them. Especially the old school style ones ☺😍

  44. Just made the corn chowder. Love it! I added some leek because we had some in the fridge. I also added curry spice seasoning and it made it so delicious! Awesome recipe!!
