Now THAT’S meal prepping! Mum-of-two chops up all her vegetables for the entire YEAR – including 20kg of potatoes, 15kg of carrots and 10kg of onion

  • A mum of two and ex chef showed off her impressive frozen food prep
  • The working mum jokingly said she expects it to last the family ‘the next year’
  • She included 15kg of carrot, 20kg of potatoes, 15kg of sweet potatoes and more
  • The woman said she spent $80 on wholesale veg in order to prep the food

A budget-savvy mother-of-two has showed off her impressive freezer filled with frozen vegetables, which she intends to feed her family with for the next year.

The mum and ex-chef shared a snap of her giant freezer and her chopped vegetables in zip-lock bags, writing ‘Veg prep for what feels like the next year lol’.

Included in the selection was 15 kilograms of carrot, 20 kilograms of potatoes, 15 kilograms of sweet potatoes and more.’

She wrote in a Facebook post: ’15kg of carrot: sliced, roast chunks and chopped.

’20kg of Sebago potatoes: roast chunks, sliced for potato baked and diced for mash.

’15kg of sweet potato: roast chunks, sliced for potato bake and diced for mash.

’10kg of onion: sliced, chopped and chunks for roast, onion rings.

‘2kg of zucchini: julienne and roast chunks.’

Her freezer also included one kilo of capsicum, sliced, two pumpkins in chunks and 10 kilograms of tomatoes, which she had diced.

The woman said she bought the vegetables wholesale for a total of $80.

The freezer post was a hit with others online, who wrote comments like: ‘Now that’s being organised’ and ‘Wow’.

Some questioned how the woman managed to find the time to carry out such a meal prepping feat, and she said ‘it helps that I used to be a chef’.

The mum said the reason why she did it is because she currently has ‘six adults and two kids’ living under one roof.

‘I do it so I don’t have to waste time every night chopping up veg for dinner, as we all work and I have uni and the two kids have after school sports,’ she said.

Others asked whether the mum had ‘pre-cooked’ any of the vegetables before putting them in the bags in the freezer.

‘None of this is pre-cooked and the roast vegetables turn out great,’ the woman replied.

‘Just need to thaw out properly so I take it all out the night before. Diced up carrot and onion and that type of stuff is for slow cooker and spaghetti etc.’

She also said that onion doesn’t smell out a freezer, provided it is kept tightly locked in a zip-lock bag.

Some in the Facebook group have been inspired by the mum to take on extreme meal prepping.

‘Thank you for sharing,’ one person wrote.

‘I was thinking I need to meal prep on a weekend because I work a 10-hour day and travel 45 minutes to and from work.

‘I am exhausted when I get home for hubby and two adult kids. This is a great way to be organised to eat healthier, love my veggies!

‘Just add meat for the main, will save you dollar on takeout and unhealthy alternative choices.’

Researching prices and finding deals can be a time-consuming process for many adults, which makes responsible spending a burden. While some big-ticket items can be rewarding, some bad purchases just won’t justify the price over time, no matter how much you try to rationalize the decision.
