20 Paleo Leftover & Freezer-Friendly Recipes

20 Paleo Leftover & Freezer-Friendly Recipes

Cooking can be tedious and time-consuming, especially if you have a family and/or a demanding job. So, let your cooking serve as double duty: a meal for today, and a meal for tomorrow, too. If you don’t want to have the same meal two days in a row, cut or portion the recipe into single-serve portions, place in individual containers and freeze for later in the week, or next week.
