Should I precook meats for frozen dinners?

Help! I want to make up some tv dinners for times when hubby and I are too burned out from the day to think up something good for dinner. He's diabetic so carbs and proteins are important parts. I was thinking of making up some dinners such as oven-baked fish fillet, green beans almondine and maybe squash or a sweet potatoe casserole in a divided dish (assuming I can find some). Others might be turkey, chicken, ham slices, with veggies. My problem is that I don't know if I use leftovers, will reheating them overcook the meats? Should the proteins be only partially cooked or completely cooked before freezing? What has been your experience

Hi Annie, I'm not stocking you really :)

I saw the word frozen and I like precooked frozen dishes.

(ducking in case she throws something)

You could use a Pressure cooker with an trivet insert. The meals would be moist with a min loss of nutrients.
