Perfect Health Weight Loss Retreats
Last night, December 2, at I am about to add that to my list and try one more time to see if I can jiggle any of the corporate pawns enough to bother to respond to me, but I have little hope. Kudos to you girlfriend! Thanks for the wonderful menu! Reena January 3, at 9:
This meal is loaded with vegetables like carrots and butternut squash, both of which have a ton of vitamin A. There are a whopping one and a half cups of fruits and vegetables in this dinner for one. It also offers 23 grams of whole grains and 11 grams of fiber. But this one is exactly the opposite —the 26 grams of protein will keep your body satisfied while the authentic taste of vindaloo will satisfy your taste buds.
All of the ingredients are things you might find in your own kitchen. The meal also contains coconut milk, so you get some healthy fats from it, too! Pork can be so fatty that it overwhelms a meal, but this bowl only contains 12 grams of fat some snack bars have 20 and still gets all the good protein from the meat.
The sauce is low in sugar, and the meal contains 90 percent of your daily recommended vitamin C. Love Mexican food but hate takeout? This bowl is a combination of so many nutritious foods. Sweet potatoes, kale, chard, tofu, pumpkin seeds, all over a bed of protein-rich quinoa… Who knew frozen food could get you to actually eat your vegetables? Chowing down on a bowl of lasagna might feel indulgent, but this meal is actually more of a boost to your diet.
If you decide after all to ditch the frozen food idea and make a really simple dinner at home instead, here are a few recipes you can whip up in no time. Easy Instant Pot Dinner Recipes. Healthiest Store-Bought Salad Dressings. Should I still have her clean up the kitchen?
I was wondering if you freeze veggies. It is cheaper to buy fresh veggies and I was going to cut them up and freeze them. I love this idea, I just got a new deep freezer so this was so up my alley, I love to cook for my family, but I never…and I mean never get a day off from it…this is a perfect way to give the kids and hubby the meals they love and me a way to get a day off from being in the kitchen…Thanks a ton!
Me and my pal trade freezer meals all the time and have been doing it for a few months. I was so excited to see your website and get some new ideas for meals that freeze well.
I love these suggestions. I am just getting into the who domestic side of things. We live in a country where restaurant life is fairly norm. As an experiment, I will make all the meals minus the pork since we cannot easily get it. Time to start making meals again since I actually love the feeling of cooking for myself and just seemed to have forgotten that for a while.
So excited to try everything! I am so excited to start. I have never done freezer meals before and I am just hoping it all fits into my freezer I only have the freezer above my fridge so hopefully it all fits thank you for doing this. People are asking for a list I used food on the table online and just put in the recipes and then added them to my meal plan the amount of times listed and then when I was done it puts it into a grocery list and I juSt went through and deleted the things off the list that I already had or combined.
I love cooking and baking, but doing it while a baby just learning to walk is running around is not on the top of my list. Thanks for all the great recipes, an if someone has a good pizza crust recipe they could send me that would be amazing, definitely want to make a bunch of mini pizzas. Hi, I love this idea. I freezed a bunch of meals to take camping this summer. One of them was Butter Chicken I use yogurt instead of heavy cream so I did not add it to the chicken until it was warmed to prevent it from separating and another was doing up the taco meat with refried beans so only the sides had to be prepared.
Love your suggestions for meals. I also make a brown rice and lentil main that tastes great after freezing. You only have to brown some onions and serve it with pain yogurt. Then there is good old fashioned mac and cheese.
I have been freezer cooking for years! Your menu looks great and even though my kids are grown and gone, I will try some of them. Btw, I always froze individual meatloafs and cassaroles using muffin tins.
The kids would pop one or two into the microwave for a quick meal or snack. I really like the idea of the freezer cooking and hope to try this soon! How many hours does it take to cook all of these meals in a day? I have never done that but a frequent goal when I was first married was to bake 50 loaves of whole wheat bread in a weekend using 3 or four bowls and a standard home oven. It was a great couple experience. The heat made the bread raise faster.
At the end of the weekend my arms felt like I had been on a marathon of weight lifting at the gym and I had lost about 10 pounds, likely of water from perspiration but our chest freezer was full with 50 loaves of great bread. We did this a couple weeks ago and although I was exhausted afterwards it has been so worth it! In fact we had the Honey Lime Chicken last night! Both me and my mom do WW so we also added in the points for each serving on the package!
It was nice to start the cooking day w all the chicken cut, pork chops trimmed, etc. We had both of our crockpots going w the same recipe for chili the whole time we were cooking and then it was for dinner cooking night as well. I am so excited to see some fresh ideas for freezer meals! I started a ministry at our local church to bring meals to people who are in need, i.
This takes stress off the family members while going through a hard time. Some of the women in our church got together on a Saturday, and we cooked over 30 meals in 4 hours! I kept them in my freezer, and when the needs arise, we already have great, homemade tasty meals to offer without having to call a million people to see if they might be able to help cook for someone.
We are all busy and when things like emergencies happen, they are not always convenient to help someone out. Doing the freezer meals helps everyone involved, we already have something ready if someone is in need, just pick up a salad and bread and deliver the meals to the family in need. It has already been a huge blessing to everyone, and all the people who cooked had a great time laughing and getting to know each other better than just Hi in church on Sunday morning.
We are planning a get-together in October to do some more, and I am happy to have some more new things to try! Glad I stumbled upon this site! How many people do your freezer meals serve? I have 4 kiddos who seem to be growing and eating more by the day!
I am wondering if you have found that you have plenty to go around? When I portion out my meals I always try to think about how much we will eat. One pot pie is not enough for us anymore, we need 2 of those now as well. My lasagna can feed us all though. We — a groove of six of us — have been meal swap -ingredients for three years. We could so do this. Any even number of girls works. We could do it every week but things seem to work well for us this way.
Nothing fancy or over the top. We all have like children and like busy lives. But the freezer meals sound amazing. I am a retired nurse now but raised 4 kids, including a set of twins and was a foster Mom for many of those years while working at least one full time job and usually two. This was the way I lived. I ran two 25 cubic foot freezers. Most of my veggies came from pick your own gardens and home frozen. Potatoes were bought in 50 lb bags. I could bake 25 lbs in my oven at once and make up twice baked potatoes in various flavors, freeze loosely on trays and add to bags when solid.
Corn was bought in the fall in 20 dozen lots in the fall, cut off the cob and frozen in various preps…. I did plain, some still on the cob, some creamed corn, some mixed with onion , celery and green pepper for a change. I froze every veggie I could get my hands on. I made pie crusts in bulk, froze them with fruit mixed with sugar, butter and corn starch in a bag so making a fresh pie was a matter of combining and baking.
Cookies were made a slice and bake in 12 varieties. Fresh cookies any time an oven was on. Hamburger was processed down into browned 1 lb pack with various seasonings…. Hamburgers were made and barbaqued when ever the grill was on….. Ready for that quick meal…already cooked. Soups and stews the same way. I would spend one day making waffles and pancakes in front of the tv… Freeze for popping in the toaster oven. A version of Egg McMuffins made and individually wrapped. I made my own version of instant oatmeal with powdered milk and dried fruit.
French toast…and French toast sandwiches with ham and cheese were another fav…frozen for reheating. It is cheaper and saves your sanity to think ahead! Marilyn Can you elaborate a little more on how you did this??
I am new to your site and completely inspired. I decided to create my own laundry detergent and found your blog to be the most straight-forward and frankly, easy when it came to instructions. We are on a very snug budget but find free and exciting things to do outside of the house.
The expensive part is getting around the high costs of living at home and the necessary supplies to do so, i. I am feverishly seeking ways to save us money so we can enjoy living and not live just to pay bills and survive, if you get my meaning. Maybe one day we can feature you and a bunch of your Happy Money Saving tips in the mag.
You didnt even need to blog anything! When I saw those pictures I new this book would be worth the mony!!!!! I do have a question about the sweet and sour chicken you made and froze. I make it all the time but have never frozen it. How exactly did you do it? Did you freeze after cooking, or before, etc Thanks so much!! Could you perhaps say how much this was in terms of upfront costs?
Thank you so much for your fifty frozen meals in a day. I dont know how you did it but i managed to make three lasanyaz and two enchiladas and one scalloped potatoes and i never had to cook for five days.
Thank you so much. Its an incredible idea and great time saver for when you just want some time off. Thank you thank you so much. THank you so much!
I came across your idea on Facebook and was excited! I used some of my own recipes and some of yours and all were big hits! I super hate to be that person, but I am a pescavegetarian I eat some seafood, but no other meats and I was wondering what fish would be a good substitutes for the chicken in the chicken dishes?
Or some vegetarian options? This is such a wonderful idea and as a full time college student living with two men, I need all the help I can get! Oh not at all Anna! Actually I am working on my very first freezer meals cookbook right now and there will be quite a few vegetarian options. Sorry, not seafood though. Thanks for your comment, hope you have a great day!
This is such a cool an interesting idea u got. Hi there, thank you so much! I am working on my first cookbook and all recipes will be revealed then! I was wondering, since everything in the lasagna is already cooked and the hr in the oven is only to heat it.
Could I just thaw it in the refrigerator and then cut out portions to be warmed in the microwave? I love the idea of freezing meals ahead of time!! My husband and I both work full time and have our first baby on the way due in April!
Where do you get your freezer containers to store the food in? And what are some good tips for keeping the food from getting freezer burn? I will either use gallon sized freezer safe bags, my reusable neat-os bags or foil containers I buy at the dollar store. This is definitely something I want to try. Though we are trying to go wheat free so that may make things a little trickier. But having freezer meals made ahead would sure be a help in my organization for this year.
You mention 4 chicken breasts honey lime chicken …. Same goes for your other chicken recipes…. Thanks for the great recipes! I am so excited to try this couple questions, do you find doing a month worth of meals saves you money?
Also I see in the picture it is a small freezer pretty close to mine do you normally fit a month of meals in there? Which is really good. Plus these meals my family does LOVE which makes it cost effective.
If I am not doing freezer meal cooking I am often going out to eat because I am too tired to cook, or I am just giving my kids something not great to eat like cereal. As for the freezer — the smaller freezer can fit about 30 meals — but the other 20 I put in the deep freeze. If you have a small freezer you might want to just do In fact in you are a beginner you might want to do 30 to start with anyways!
It should be now! Use the Pin it button on the bottom of the page and it should work! Let me know if you have any more problems! Thanks for the tips! This has been the most helpful and informative post for freezer cooking I have thus read yet, I am excited to try this next weekend: I love having dinners in the freezer ready to heat and eat! At this point I am 71 yeas old and tired of cooking everyday.
My main question is why do you freeze the sauce separate from the protein, as in the Sweet and Sour Chicken or meatballs? Also I am considering using frozen vegetables and possibly? My main objective is ease not health, just those days when I do not have an interest in cooking and do not want to go to a restaurant or fast food place. I was a single parent when my boys were young and so I prepared freezer meals on weekends for a week or two at a time.
I also made individual TV dinners from left overs labeling ingredients on each TV dinner. Saved me lots of money plus my boys liked eating right away when I got home. Freezer meals were mostly things like spaghetti sauce from scratch, chili, roasts, Swiss steak, hamburger, chicken and tuna casseroles, meat loaves, and other easy recipes. I was called the hamburger queen as I would buy in bulk especially if on sale.
I also froze fresh veggies when I found them on sale. Example was when I bought ears of corn for 5 cents each. Thank you for compiling a list of homemade, good freezer meals instead of just the typical, unhealthy or unappealing ones I normally find. The only thing that could possibly make this post better is a grocery list … I might send you mine after I make it for my grocery trip this weekend. When you do it in bulk it can be cheaper because you use a lot of the ingredients like chicken for several different meals!
Southern Living used to run recipes for this…I raised my son on those! When I was a single mom and in college, those recipes saved our lives. There were quite a few that I made in bulk back then. If anyone is interested I can drag them out and send them to Kari? I use the no boil noodles for lasagna now that I have figured out how it works.
When I make my meat sauce, I make like a double batch really saucy and as I layer everything, I heap a generous amount of sauce, like super generous and while it is baking, the noodles suck up half the liquid and it turns out perfect. If you just put the normal amount of sauce on, it will turn out dry and the edges will be hard…yuck. Also, just layer the noodles in the middle because when they start expanding, they will expand to the edges.
I have never tested freezing it before hand though. I always just made it right then. Oh, and thank you you sweet kitchen goddess for all of your hard work in helping the rest of us look like geniuses to our families in our own kitchens. It all depends on how much the meat costs, how much you already have in your pantry ect. I was looking at your link to the sweet and sour chicken. Just bake as indicated and freeze afterwards?
Thanks for any advice! We will be taking some of our own recipes and using some of yours as well. ALSO we will be working some dessert ideas into it for the kids! We are gonna get set up this week and start next tuesday.
Will keep you informed! I was just wondering: I think because the ingredients are mixed together before freezing these freeze well.
Let me know what you think after you try them! It really depends on the adults you are feeding. These recipes feed my family — 2 adults, 4 kids. Here are some freezer recipes for two!
Just discovered this now and am so excited to cook for my pregnant friend! My question- how do you wrap them properly for the freezer? I imagine just a layer of foil would get freezer burn like crazy!?? I havent had any trouble with the foil at all! Make sure and use heavy duty aluminum foil and wrap tightly. However I am wondering if any one has recipes for prepaired ahead meals.
Ones that I can bag up and freeze, and then thaw and crockpot the cooking process. I am not to sure what foods I can freeze and which ones do not turn out as well from freezing. A lot of my freezer meals are easy to toss the ingredients in and freeze.
Thanks for the new recipes. I have been making freezer meals for my parents. These are great for the days they are not feeling up to cooking. They just love them.
Thank you for this, but I have problem with defrosting unfreezing. How to defrost different types of food veggies and meat stored in one box? If you click each meal it will give the printable recipe and ingredients that you can use to make your list!
When you take the meals out to cook them for dinner, how hot should the oven be and how long should you cook them? Does it vary based on each meal? And how long is the longest that I should attempt to freeze something? Also when you freeze a casserole in the foil baking pans, do you just cover it in foil or do you use something else to make it more frost resistant?
It definitely varies on each meal. To cut down on cooking time it is usually best to thaw it in the fridge during the day and then put it in the oven at night. Some of the recipes you can stick in the crock pot right from the freezer, too. Here are a couple more posts that give more information.
I have a question… freezing rice…. Seems like I should add some liquid back in. I usually just make a batch of rice fresh with my meal. I like it better. But if you were going to reheat it I would say add in a teaspoon of water for every cup of rice sprinkled on top of the rice.
Then check it often to make sure it is not dried out. Is there a secret to freezing these foods? In certain recipes it works really well. I always test out a new freezer recipe with those ingredients first and then see how it freezes and cooks up. All of the recipes on my website have been tried, tested and approved! Hi, how do we know that can stay frozen, what needs to be defrosted and how to reheat it, ie.
Most of the frozen meals have directions on the recipe card for how to cook it. Can I use a vacuum sealer as opposed to Ziploc bags? Will this help keep the food longer in the freezer by chance? One little mention about chicken cordon Bleu, chicken fried steaks…my local meat shop sells these and several other items individually for a fraction of the cost to make them.
I love having those readily available without all the mess it entails. Hi, love the ideas here! Been doing freezer meals for ever and love it! I also have a small freezer and a deep chest freezer. One of the best investments we ever made! Our favorites are tamales enchiladas and chimichangas.
I have done several types of pasta dishes and all work great! We love our homemade egg mc muffins too. Just seeing you sitting on the porch with a glass of lemonade in your hand makes me want to do freezer meals LOL. I need some down time. I am going to try this next month!
I add rice, beans, and layer the meat, cheese, sauce and tortillas. Good idea except for the aluminum foil containers. When you heat aluminum, flakes of it come off in your food. Love the fact that I can grab one from the freezer and take it to work for lunch. And the good thing about this idea is the meals are all calorie counted by bye to weight watchers expensive meals. Have fun and enjoy. I have in the past made meals and froze them for a later date Chili, Cabbage Rolls, Baked Beans Your recipes have put a whole new spin on frozen t.
Thank you for taking the time to blog all about it! Congratulations on your book! I forgot to add that I really enjoy cooking, getting to spend one entire day cooking with someone watching the kids sounds like a treat right now!
Especially knowing that the one day will yield sooo many meals, as opposed to just one holiday meal like at Thanksgiving. How do you freeze the sweet and sour chicken recipe? Sorry for sounding a bit silly but I really appreciate it when you put the how to freeze steps on your recipes for the really un-initiated. I place the sauce in one bag and the pre cooked chicken in another bag and seal them together.
If I make these homemade freezer meals before returning to work I will be so much less stressed! Hi, thank you for sharing. I learned how to meal prep when I had a chef for housemate in my college days. That helped me a lot since I was cooking for 1. He taught me how to portion out my food and freeze them. So I used to make beef rendang Indonesian curry , Chinese braise pork belly and soto ayam Indonesian chicken soup 2 weeks before exam week. She said the flavors of the curry sauce seeped into the rice as it thaw.
My son is super picky. Used to be one of my favorite stores. No one ever calls you back! It gets down to the almighty dollar, screw customer service and make an extra buck! HEB is opening up down the street and I cannot wait! A friend of mine works in the pharmacy at the Krogers in Lewisburg Tn. She shares with me everyday the people who come in and what medications they are on. I know most of the names of Aids patients, the jeweler who gets massive amounts of Viagra, the child who had to be put on anti-depressants and so on and so forth.
She even uses their data base to obtain phone numbers and address for her own harassment fun. Where does it stop? I have complained a few years ago and she is still hard at it! Ive shopped at Kroger for years and I get some really good discounts because of our sr citizen discounts.
Plus we take advantage of the fuel discounts. But the last two times I used my debit card the reader read chip malfunction. Last time he tried running it through over and over and my bank put a freeze on my account. I have been shopping at this location for a couple of years now. This is my second complaint on this store. Customers are retrieving their own shopping carts from the parking lot. I counted 6 carts in one isle that the employees have filled up and left. Kroger is one of the largest companies in America making billions.
A customer should not have to retrieve their own carts from the parking lot paying the prices we do for groceries. Management has been changed at this store several times. All I am asking is to hire someone to retrieve carts, replace the broken ones, and put a manager in this store that cares!
A good manager would get out on the floor and help the employees and customers! Please help this store! Customers are tired of it! We do have other options. If not corrected, I will go to other places to shop and get my prescriptions filled! Good luck on getting anyone to call you back! I once thought Kroger was the best. No customer service, forcing you to use scanners when there are lines and lines of empty registers no people! Thanks ok, waiting for the new HEB To be built down the street.
Pretty sure Kroger will be singing a different tune! The Rainelle WV Kroger store has a big problem with the head frontend clerk he is really rude with many customers and he has a big attitude with employees too talks to them like they are stupid this is why I try to shop at the Fairlea Kroger most of the time even though I have to drive a longer distance.
Guess I will be shopping at Fairlea Kroger again. Kroger used to be a good place to shop or work. Used to care about people. Raised the flu shot prices, forced a bunch of pharmacists to part time, never anyone at the service desk. I hope they file bankruptcy sooner than later. I agree with comment Tim made on May 14 !!!
Kroger is all about Kroger now who cares about the people who are paying your pay checks? It like the guy Tim said its all about the almighty dollar and not about the customers! Publix knows how to treat their customers,and I guess they will start getting my business because you care less!!!! My supervisor who evaluated me every week was unfair.
He told me I needed to improve my attendance. I was tardy twice, but the third time I was tardy was not my fault.
My bus was late, but the supervisor named Andres, still blamed it on me. I went to the manager to get help and he refused to help me. Emplyees at your stores are not always nice and friendly. They can be rude and nasty. Today, at the Kroeger supermarket on the corner of High St. She was very pleased to see a sign in the wine section, identifying a section that presumably contained Kosher wines.
Quite a disappointment and a significant instance of false advertising. Your pharmacy has taken advantage of my wife for years. We are on fixed incomes with no prescription coverage and have been paying hundreds of dollars per month in medication costs. This is morally and ethically the lowest thing you could do. My wife uses your store in tullahoma tn. You need to consider training your employees. And adjusting your corporate ethics. What goes around comes around. I have shopped at many of your different stores in the past, my family and friends also shop at different locations throughout the country.
I personally will no longer be a customer of anything Kroger is attatched to, and I will do my best to make sure that they learn of your censorship, and your attitude towards guns, and even gun literature. Apparantly you have made the same mistake other businessess have made and allowed your politics to seep into your customer base. I know you will continue to be succesful, but I also know that there are many more like me, that would prefer to spend their hard earned dollars at your competitors.
HI, I just wanted to share with you two terrible experiences I had at two different Kroger locations today. I walked up to the deli and a lady was cleaning one of the slicers. She turned around and saw me standing there and very politely asked what she could get me. I told her what I wanted and watched to see if she was going to put on clean gloves since she was just cleaning a dirty slicer. She grabbed the boars head ham, with her dirty gloves, set it on the slicer, and sliced my meat.
Once she was done, I asked her what she was cleaning the slicer with. She asked if I wanted her to change her gloves and slice fresh meat, but I denied because the entire block of ham was now contaminated. I let the manager know on the way out how disgusted I was with the staff slicing my lunch meat with dirty gloves on.
The manager offered to get me fresh meat, but at that point it was already contaminated. I left there without any groceries and I will not go back. I went to the deli and I could not believe that the same issue was about to occur. The lady came walking from where they prep their chicken and had gloves on. She asked what she could get me and never bothered to take her gloves off. I nicely asked her if she would mind putting on clean gloves. Either way, you should be changing gloves in between each customer.
She looked at me like I cannot believe she just asked me to change my gloves. This lady and the other two ladies stood that and laughed while making comments.
I spoke up and stated they should be changed with each customer. This is a huge health code violation. The manager at this store told me it was unacceptable and that he would talk to them. This is absolutely unacceptable. Something needs to be done and I hope you as a corporation steps up and takes immediate action. I will be waiting for a response back from you. Patricia Newell Arkansas City, Kansas. Kroger has that right and I have the right to shop elsewhere. Check in the unisex toilets, where no one puts the seat up anymore.
Just like taking a stand against law-abiding people owning guns; a singularly stupid idea that only makes perfect sense to a libtard and is also remarkably self-correcting.
I really enjoy shopping at Kroger. However, I will not be shopping there anymore. The digital coupons is a great idea for the younger generation, but what about the elderly? I have seen my mother and her friends upset on too many occasions over not getting something for the advertised price.
They do not have smart phones, which means they do not have digital coupons. Maybe consider a promotion that will help the elderly save.
After all, they are the ones on a fixed income. You can use a computer any computer to get the digital coupons. Maybe go to your library and use the computer? Make sure your Kroger card is registered. You are either a liar or a fool. This is my reason for attempting to contact Kroger. I have been utilizing on line resources including shopping for over twenty years. I do not have or desire a smart phone. I am writing you to advise that your shelf fell on me along with everything on the shelf at Kroger.
At the location Address: On aisle 17 I reached for a pan the shelf was right in front of me so about 4 feet high. As soon as I grabbed the pan the entire shelf which is metal as you know along with everything on the shelf fell on top of me. I Fell backwards on my head and right side. They then went to go get a manager. The manager put me in a mechanical chair transferred my food and gave me ice for my head and shoulder. My leg was in pain at that time as well. He then took my statement and advised me that they would cover any medical bills.
I then paid for my food no one helped me put my food on the counter no one help me load them to my car. I then came home to lay down and got really dizzy scared of a concussion I immediately went to the ER. They hospital did x-rays and advised I had minor head injury, and that my exam showed shoulder pain due to tendonitis, bursitis surrounding my joints. I Shop at Kroger twice weekly for all my groceries. Then to make it all worse some lady calls me asking how I am doing ask about my leg, I advised her no I felt like I was hit by a bus you have no clue how heavy that shelf is.
Wrong way to start a conversation! She never apologized to me she was concerned about you not accepting responsibility. As I advised her I was on aisle 17 and there is a camera on that aisle.
I will not let Kroger get over on me and I spend lots of money in this store on a weekly basis as I live 5minutes away. This is crazy how no one helped with my grocers on check out and to my car I had to call my husband. Why not call me once the footage has been viewed? You have done nothing but cause me heart ache and pain!!! I will get a lawyer if this is not resolved this week! This shelf could have fell on an elderly woman! This was a metal shelf fell on me as I just grabbed a pan off the shelf this was in no way my fault!
You are supposed to have someone check these isle throughout the day, there is no way I unscrewed the shelf on both sides moved everything off the shelf to do this then placed everything back on the shelf then made it fall on me!!! I have never experienced anything like this where the customer who comes every Sunday and Friday spends hundreds of dollars. I will take kroger to court I have already spoken to many lawyers. We obviously have no choice if we wish to have rewards from Kroger, or will those change too?
Major work for this household, mainly me! Appreciate the heads up with card change but we may need to rethink shopping with Kroger if Kroger Reward changes are made as well.
I hope our Kroger stock grows more from this assumed bottom line savings from Visa to MC! If there is a greater Visa Card service charge to Kroger Corp against a great savings from MC, I might understand if this had been explained. I am a retired employee of the Ind. Dairy, and have always shopped at Kroger. We now live in Greenfield In. And if you do find them I have found the lines for the check out self to be backed up to the Deli Dept.
And people are going to Walmart to do their shopping because of this problem. I feel tis needs to be corrected. I purchased you advertised dinner for Christmas and needless to say was super disappointed. I was under the impression from the add and your phone person that the dinner was cooked and all I had to do was heat and eat. Shocker had to cook the dinner. If that was the way it was it should have been advertised as that. I would have purchased my dinner separately and would have had better beans and potatoes.
I will in form you that this will be the first and last time I purchase a meal from you. I will purchase my meal from someone else or purchase individual items my self to be cooked by me.
What a big let down. The price was too high to have to cook my self. The person makes sure the smaller amount check clears, the presents a larger check to pay for gift cards! These checks were returned and created a monetary loss for Krogers. Perhaps Krogers should only accept credit cards to pay for gift cards. Well, my son took a cash card which the tranasactions s were approved and payment cleared at the time of purchase as payments for gift cards.
Everyone inserts a chip or swipes these days and it it either approved or declined. The cashier moves forward if the payment is approved and so would anyone who works with accepting payments. Found out The Cash card was stolen, and payment was stopped and the thieves still got the gift cards and spent them across the street.
My son, who is listed as a bagger, paid as a bagger, trained to be a bagger until the customer service manager put him in a cashier position over 2 months ago when the store got busy; HE was terminated for taking the cash card as payment due to his name being on the copy of the receipt.
The manger, Robert, said he was emabarrased that protocol was not followed he had no idea that a bagger was running the transaction. I understand Kroger lost money, but the CSM should be terminiated for putting a 15 year old as a cashier without pursuing the proper training and following the proper procedures and policies to fill this position. Its really aggravating and have complained before. The Kroger in Fayettville,Ga stole my money and will not give it back.
Can someone send me the number to Bruce,the CEO. And the Managers on duty were very rude. My son worked at Kroger from June 9, to November 19, He was a good employee, on-time and even called in on occasion to cover other peoples shifts. Since he was able to see his schedule online, he constantly monitored the schedule and informed his supervisor when we could not work because of school.
Although he verbally told the managers the days that he could not work, his schedule for the most part was always wrong, they had him scheduled to work days that he had school activities and his schedule changes many times with no notification. When he came home and told me what happened, we went back up to Krogers and I requested an explanation.
The manager on duty could not provide me with proof of the incident nor a copy of the discharge paperwork. They will not get away with this, I am following up with this. Last couple of time, after I did all my shopping and came to self check-out, guess what.. Do you Kroger folks even give a damn about customer service. Do you not even contact the customers to try to correct problems? I personally am just about ready to look up an HEB to shop at.
When I lived in Texas before, Kroger was not like this!!!! They have gone to hell in a handbasket and so, too, it seems Kroger followed. Overall, the thing I most dislike about Kroger is that they will never get in an item for a customer, though we are willing to take the whole darn crate if price is fair. I have asked for ERA detergent, Owens sausage,cheese kolaches these are not kolaches, but tiny snack sausages in bread wrapping been out for months , Rye cocktail size bread I cater , Boulevard Wheat Beer from Kansas City, Mrs.
Grimes Chili beans in chili gravy, Shullsburg—or any kind—of cheese with bacon, Hormel pork patties in tin can. Where I moved from they were accommodating, unlike Kroger.
Incidentally, your rest rooms at ANY of your stores are filthy!! I will say, most of help is very nice. I get up at 7am to go get gas from the krogers on washington road in augusta georgia. I walk up to the clerk glass window to see that the employee was bent over stocking product so i gave her a few min to Finnish up in anticipation that she would at least greet me and or acknowledge that i am standing there. She did not she continued to stock product. Self service would not work for me so i walk back up to the window to ask for assistance and i see the employee walk out of the booth towards what i can only assume is her car.
At this point i know im being ignored on purpose. This happened on wensday This was not a plesent way to start my morning.
If this is the quality of service your cooperation exhibits, I can no longer spend my hard earned money in your stores or at gas stations. I am from Indianapolis, Indiana, and I use the E. I called them today and they said they had never heard of that offer and they do not use it. Where, then, does Kroger use a Senior discount? I was going to write a long and detailed complaint but I see other complaints here about the same issues.
For some reason national management has decided that some stores can be poorly stocked all the time. My best guess is that Kroger is having financial problems and can no longer afford to stock all its stores.
It cannot afford to hire enough staff. So, blue collar neighborhoods become victims. You have become Wal Mart of taking customers for granted. Several advertised specials were not in stock. Your policy is for a customer to wait in line at the Courtesy Booth for a rain check. This customer has too much pride to be forced into another line. You mail me monthly coupons but many of those items were not in stock.
Its obvious that you do not value my patronage. You have been making a big deal about customers being patient while you restock from Harvey. Results, not excuses are how we live in Texas. People were being rescued off roofs. Kroger just has an inventory delivery system that does not work in good weather and totally collapses in bad weather.
Stop being a martyr. My Kroger is only 2 miles from the house. I like the staff. Your manager gets on his hands and knees restocking shelves because you wont hire enough staff. I feel sorry for him because none of the store departments can get what they order and he gets the blame. You have one last chance to keep me as a customer. I am 70 years old and have been shopping with you for over 40 years. Can you please bring a kroger to waterville Maine I guarentee you most if not all of walmarts business.
I applied online being a previous employee when I was 17 years old. Krogers was my first job and first learning experience of customer service. I started out as a bagger then I was confident enough to ask to become a cashier. Soon after I ended up leaving for the military.
When I finally began to try and take a chance after the thousandth time to reassimilate back into society and civilian life, I was told that the positions that I applied for were already filled. I arrived to the store and the individual was already conducting an interview and I asked if I needed to wait elsewhere.
He replied no and even had the audacity to tell me to take out my Bluetooth as if I was using it or being interviewed. After 15 of watching him decide on what time and date for the individual before me to come in I was told to move a seat down. The interviewer then proceeds to make a phone call and check on a pizza before starting with me. I believe I was barely making that there when I was 17 years old back in He failed to mention that they have competitive pay as well as a credit for prior employment.
This is what I was blind to so many years after my enlistment and building my repetoire in this skill trade, pure veteran discrimination. This is no human error. Then I had to call myself to follow up which may be rare this day in time.
Also a recruiter claimed out of ever question asking on age eligibility I answered the first one wrong but then the others correctly. Is this what welcome back or have to deal with after being treating like outcast or labeled by a society that we volunteered for? I believe it should speak volumes of I was uprooted and snatched out of an environment already challenging then rebuilt and trained only to be labeled and shortchanged like that.
Hope the pizza was good, mine would be been phenomenal had I been given to bring my knowledge of culinary back to the roots where I began in the workforce. Smoke and mirrors and technology with scripts to protect the company. Thanks for the another experience of how the system works. I have worked for Kroger for almost 8 months. I work in the Deli. Others in my department dislike me. It has gotten worse. I go to work and do my job.
I try helping as much as I can in the Bakery as well. I have only missed 1 day since the day I got hired and get treated like crap by all. Not one person in that Deli puts in the effort I do.
They all have excuses for not doing their jobs and leaving it for me to do. I need something done about these people treating me so badly. I need to know my hard work is worth it. Who do I call to confirm all this? I have already asked them and I keep getting excuses. I have a 16 year old granddaughter that was just hired as a cashier; a Kroger Store in Frankfort, Kentucky.
She went through orientation etc. Worked her scheduled hours, right on time. Her last day of work, she had just gotten about ready to leave the house to go to work, when she got an email from a person Shaun,; he is front end manager of store.
As I said the email was from Shaun………. Anyway this email said for my granddaughter not to come in to work that day, June 10th, , that too many had been scheduled for that morning. So thinking the email was from Shuan; she had two other conversations with him through the same email, about her next schedule and where to pick up her last check. She and I went shopping at the same store that day and she picked up her check. So she went to the camp. She got back the following Saturday.
He said for her to come in on Monday 19, at She went into work at Which she was told by Shuan not to come in to begin with. She left for home in tears….. I have been dealing with three store managers; saying she is fired because she did not show for work and with a district manager; sending me back to one of the store managers.
But the manager as of yesterday June 26, , still said she was fired. What the heck is going on here? She has never missed work, was sent an email which we have copies of, and no one seems to know how or why this happened. How can they do this. And Kroger gives this big speech about how wonderful it is to work for their company. I would say more; but truthfully, I am exhausted right now.
I have worked for the Vons. We have a supervisor that puts pressure on a few of us to do a higher volume of work at the same time he is letting others get away with arriving late every day they are scheduled to work. He himself arrives late and a lot of times with a hangover and he will tell you he has a hangover.
This is not a very professional l example to show employees. At times just knowing how the work day will start will make me sick to my stomach. Thank you for allowing me to voice my concerns. The store is so messed up it is frustrating to shop there. Of the 10 items I went to purchase, 5 of them had problems. Gentle lax missed priced on the per ounce number. There was no fat free salad dressing in the store and only large jars of fat free mayo. There was no Kroger brand onion soup on the shelf out of stock.
There was no dry soup under the overhead sign for dry soup. Spaghetti and macaroni were there. Dry soup was on the other end of the isle with no sign.
No zucchini squash on the rack out of stock. Apparently this store has quit handling Kroger diet Pink Lemonade as I have not found it on the shelf in over 3 months. I decided, since I was going to have to go somewhere else for these items I would just buy all my items at another store. I quit shopping, checked out with a couple items I already had in my cart and left. I have been shopping in this store for over 20 years.
I have seen it go through several supposedly upgrades and changes. There are items I have been purchasing for years that with each of these changes disappear from the shelves. Of all the changes this last change makes no sense. All you are doing is running your old customers off. The problems I ran into this morning are not unusual. For the last 6 months my wife has been complaining about empty shelves.
She is always having to ask for the milk she wants. A common excuse is we ordered it but the warehouse must be out of it. Yet we can go to the store in Cedar Hill and they will have what we were looking for in stock. I went to the store to purchase 12 tubes of Kroger Lubricating Jelly. I do this about every 6 weeks. They were out of stock. I was given the old adage It has been scratched, The warehouse no longer stocks it. Last year there was a problem keeping Kroger Lubricating Jelly on the shelves and I was told that same thing.
At that time, I filed a complaint with the then store manager. I called corporate and they finally started stocking it again.
A couple weeks ago there were more than 12 boxes on the shelf today there are none. Another example of lack poor management. It appears to me, this is not just the management of this store but the management over the management of this store. No one is fixing the problem. Does Kroger have anyone with enough clout to fix these problems or does Kroger just not care?
I am interested to hear if your complaints have had any response by the corporate office. Last night I went through the drive through window at our local Kroger to pick up a prescription. Over the years from prescriptions and groceries my wife and I have spent tens of thousands of dollars at your stores. I suppose I could crawl in but why should I have to do that at all?
The idiocy and absurdity of it makes my head hurt. Why even have pay at the pump? No wonder America is the way it is. Managers do not seem to be very well trained, and are very RUDE!
This is just a email with hopes that the content of this message falls into the hands of someone who still cares about integrity and people who make a difference. This is a report of a Kroger new hire in LaPorte Texas who simply started out trying to hire on as a cashier part time who has an amazing smile and a personality that could win over the meanest crankiest you could ever find, experience in retail and management made her a perfect fit, somehow after hired she found herself pushed into the meat dept.
This is a mother of two and a new marriage so obviously this would not work for her, when asked for a solution she was completely insulted and rudely told there is no job for her except the overnites or nothing. I wonder at times where has the teamwork and happiness in the workplace gone at Kroger?
This woman was so happy to be part of a team like Kroger and to be part of a union was a dream come true to her. Why has Kroger allowed this behaviour to exist in not only management but Human Resource Management?
Why is someone like HE Mgr. It is sad to see very friendly qualified applicants who desperately need employment treated in such poor manner, also how much money was invested in this new hire only to be tossed aside because she did not fit into a position?
This Regina should be looked at, this location is hurting because of the superiors at this location. They abuse it MR. Unfortunately we have lost contact with Allen and would appreciate assistance in locating him because we want him to attend our 50th anniversary celebration, can you help us out?
First of all, after reading these other complaints, my faith in Kroger stores has greatly diminished! I am 69 and disabled.
