I'm not much of a cooker and have been kind of winging it. I want to cook and freeze Protein dishes. Any recommendations for small freezer type dish to use? I tried and searched but nothing came up. Thank you!

You can buy a sleeve of cylinder containers that are freezer safe that they use in delis and stuff on Amazon they come in small sizes as well.

Never used them, but they have good reviews on Amazon: Sage Spoonfuls Big Batch Storage Set, 4 Ounce (Pack of 12)

I just keep things simple. I grill 1-2 chicken breasts along with some other thing--often salmon and then just take off 2-3oz portions all week and nuke a quick veg and poof. Meals done! Or I make a turkey roll up, or do a quick 5 minute green Soup, etc...KISS.

I just go to the container section at Walmart. The little plastic ones do okay in the freezer, but do crack if dropped.

Depending on what you are looking to freeze the food saver system might be a good idea. I did a bunch of meals for hubby in single serve sizes while I am in my post op diet. I didn't cook the chicken/meat ahead of time but I did buy larger packs of chicken/steak and preseason/marinade them the shrunk them in single serve portions. I did the same with frozen veggies. Now he has about 3 weeks worth of meals that he can mix & match easily and not feel like he is sacrificing anything while I am not eating and there is no struggle to use/eat all the Protein before it goes bad. It is working out well enough that I may continue to do it once I am back on food.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
