Are Keto Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo Pockets Good for Meal Prepping?

Do you meal prep? Meal preparing typically means that you prepare food in advance for yourself and/or your family. Meal prep can be done in many different ways. Some people meal prep for the day ahead and some people meal prep for the coming month, some people simply prep the ingredients for an upcoming meal to make cooking it easier.

It is most common to see meal prep done about a week in advance. Many people pick a day on the weekend so the busy weekdays aren’t filled with cooking.

Let’s face it, we all have busy schedules and with a busy schedule comes the challenge of maintaining a healthy diet. Meal prepping is a great way to keep your diet as you want it to be, to maintain your healthy eating goals. Another benefit to meal prep? It helps save money!

These keto hot pockets are great for meal prep because once cooked they can easily be frozen individually. Whenever you are hungry for a grab and go snack or you are ready to pack them up for lunch, just grab them out of the freezer and reheat!

Can You Freeze Keto Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo Pockets?

Yes, these keto hot pockets can definitely be frozen once cooked! As I mentioned above while talking about meal prep, these are great for freezing individually and taking out one at a time or as needed.

Be sure to use the correct containers for freezing these hot pockets though. A double sealed freezer bag should work and so should freezer-safe containers. Be sure to label and date them before placing them into the freezer and do not freeze them for more than a few months. While food left in the freezer for longer won’t spoil, it may not taste as great.

Are Keto Hot Pockets Good for Packing Lunches?

These keto hot pockets are great for packing in your lunch because they can easily be frozen ahead of time, they fit easily into a sandwich bag or container, and are perfect for lunchboxes.

They definitely taste better warmed up so be sure there is a microwave on hand to heat them up before eating.

There are a lot of great keto chicken and broccoli recipes out there, but I am always looking for more to add to the list. This one has definitely made the cut.
