You’ve readied the nursery. You’ve folded the clothes. You’ve done the bucket list of things that only the pre-baby you can do. Now’s the time to get cooking (more than just your baby, that is). Why? Because if there’s one thing you won’t have when your baby comes, it’s the time to cook three healthy meals a day. What’s a preggo mama to do? Try making and freezing one (or 10!) of these easy make-ahead meals.

Freezer Breakfast Sandwich

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day — and that's especially true when you've been up all night with a newborn. These freezable breakfast sandwiches are loaded with protein, calcium, and whole grains. Pop them in the freezer fully-cooked, then zap them in the microwave when you're ready to eat. Chungah at Damn Delicious has the recipe.
