I love cooking for my family and I find that it’s always easier for me to stay on some kind of healthy eating plan (as in, I don’t stand over the sink eating Rice Cakes and leftovers) if I actually plan ahead and make a meal. Truth be told though, my work schedule is pretty heavy and it’s hard to motivate at the end of the day… which is why I love a crock pot meal. I love throwing a bunch of stuff in my slow cooker and coming home to the complete meal.
Hope you guys like it as much as I do!
