If you are a mom, dad or care giver to children, you know how challenging it can be to prepare deliciously healthy, make ahead meals everyone loves. While make ahead meals do not necessarily have to be designed using a "one size fits all" strategy, healthy dishes which can be easily prepared and frozen can come in handy for many meal-planning occasions. Never underestimate the power of freshly frozen, healthy recipes you can make ahead and thaw out in a hurry. Make a big batch to have a little now and more later!

Two of the easiest recipe categories to rely on for breakfast, lunch and dinner are hash and hash browns recipes. They may sound the same, but each has its own unique, full-bodied characteristics which involve recipe creating fun and scrumptious end results. The magic, of course, is in the ingredients!

Ideas for the tastiest hash browns begin with nicely browned, grated potatoes. Always a favorite! Adding a little butter, garlic and onion offers promising delight for discerning taste buds. Mix it up a little by using red potatoes, sweet potatoes or a combination to incorporate varying textures and flavors. Crispy, savory hash browns make perfect side dishes or single-serving meals. Easy to make, easy to freeze - hash browns can conveniently become an easy go-to part of any meal planning effort.

Cooking up chock full of flavor dishes is easy to do when exploring delicious hash recipes. With a few extra fresh vegetables like cauliflower, zucchini and green peppers in the works, simple hash suddenly becomes a main course. Toss in some seasoned ground pork, aged cheddar cheese and organic eggs, and watch another fabulously fulfilling dish magically come to life for your hungry army! Draining ground pork (or any ground meat) will remove high caloric fat while still providing healthful flavor. Or Try adding cubed ham with your cheddar cheese for a yummy hash.

Don't forget the delicious hash browns you prepared earlier. When hash ingredients are combined with the roasty-toasty flavor of hash browns and fresh vegetables the world of tasty delights just keeps getting better. Like it spicy? Add a little cumin or pepper flakes for that perfect bite.

The bottom line to incorporating healthy smorgasbords on the go is about preparing, freezing and serving flavorful foods on the fly. Turn up the hash-style meal planning volume. When meals are this mouthwatering and easy everything else seems to fall into place!
