I started making freezer meals during my university residence days. The cafeteria food was deep fried, so I bought a small freezer and made individual meals at my parent’s place a few times a month. I saved a ton of money and avoided the typical “freshman 15.”
That was thirty years ago, and freezer meals are still making my life easier. I’ve tried freezing in many different ways over the years, and the Souper Cubes® system is the best that I’ve tried.
Here’s why I love them.
The lid: This is my favourite part. When I was freezing in muffin pans, the wells nested in each other, no matter how carefully I stacked them. With a lid, you can stack the filled Souper Cubes® neatly on each other. No more mess!
Perfect Size: The bricks stack neatly and stay that way. Previously, I was using silicone jumbo muffin pans, but they don’t stack neatly. I’ve also used jumbo ice cube trays, which stack, but they are not big enough to stay stacked. The picture below shows nine cups of spaghetti sauce frozen in Souper Cubes® compared with a jumbo muffin pan.
Good quality silicone: When I first started freezing in silicone, I bought some cheap mini-loaf pans. Within three months, they were stained and had a weird smell. You get what you pay for!
There are more benefits than I can mention, but here’s the most important.
Here are some additional benefits if you are following a low histamine plan or have a restricted diet.
