Premade Slow Cooker Meal Pouches with Ziploc Vacuum Sealer

Sponsored by Ziploc Brand Vacuum Sealer

I never thought just how helpful my Ziploc Brand Vacuum Sealer until I actually started to use it. Meal prepping take some work up front, but it pays off when you have the ability to create great everyday meals in those busy school and work nights. 

With school now back and we're all gearing up for fall and winter sports, getting back into the routine and filling up our schedules with countless activities, serving dinner usually takes the back seat. Instead we rush through the drive to simply get anything in our bellies even though it may not always be the best option. 

These premade slow cooker meal pouches using Ziploc Vacuum Sealer are great ways to prep dinner, taking all of the chopping out of the way and gathering ingredients you can easily dump in a slow cooker and come home to a great-tasting, no guilt, home cooked meal for the entire family. 

The key is to have all the main ingredients together in a vacuum sealed pouch to keep it fresher, longer. Then, when you're ready, you simple cut the pouch open, put all the ingredients in the slow cooker, add some salt and pepper and a can of crushed tomatoes and you'll be coming home to a house smelling like delicious beef stew!

Plus, the possibilities of premade pouches are endless! See the video below for a simple beef stew meal.
