My specialty is freezer cooking for expectant parents. I can answer questions about freezer cooking in general (what will/won't freeze well, how long can something be frozen for, what is a good freezer recipe for a particular ingredient or cuisine etc.) and I can also help expectant moms put together a freezer cooking plan based on their own situation (energy level, trimester etc.)
I have created and tested 100s of my own freezer recipes, and I implemented a freezer cooking plan for myself during each of my three pregnancies. After the birth of my third child, I had enough freezer food stocked up to last until my daughter was nine months old.

Hello Alex, thanks for the question. Your answer is a resounding "sort of." Most vegetables freeze acceptably well, with exceptions being leafy greens like lettuce. But all food will lose some quality
