The 13 Best Homemade Versions of Popular Frozen Foods
Here at Brit + Co, we’re constantly on a mission to find ways to live healthier. We understand that life can get incredibly busy and sometimes frozen foods seem like the quick and easy way to go, but we also know that they’re filled with excess sodium and calories. So what’s the solution, you ask? Homemade versions! Here are 13 delectable frozen food recipes you can freeze ahead of time and enjoy on those crazy hectic days.
5. Baked Homemade Pizza Rolls: Now, these may not look exactly like the original pizza rolls, but it’s only because they’re better. Not only are these baked wonton wrappers a whole lot healthier, but they add a wonderful crunch to each bite. (via Back to Her Roots)
8. Baked Mozzarella Sticks: Mozzarella sticks and you go together like peanut butter and jelly. And when those mozzarella sticks are baked? It’s even better — like peanut butter and Nutella. (via The Comfort of Cooking)
10. Sweet Potato Parmesan Tater Tots: These tater tots are baked, made of sweet potatoes and come with a Sriracha dipping sauce. Ladies and gents, it doesn’t get much better than this. (via Half Baked Harvest)

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
