When life gets too crazy and unpredictable to cook healthy…..slow cook! It’ll save you oodles of time, stress, money (on the takeout you don’t end up buying), and likely save your sanity.
The 8 weeks between Halloween and New Years are some of busiest (and most indulgent) days that most of us experience all year. Between gatherings, parties, other festive celebrations, and preparations, finding the time to actually cook a healthy meal for our families is a bit….questionable. But we don’t want to abandon all of our health-going ways just because the holidays are upon us! My slow cooker is put to extra use during these busy times to make sure a healthy dinner makes it on to the table, despite the holiday crazies!
Here are some amazingly delicious and family-friendly slow cooker recipes that I’ve gathered to help make your life a bit easier during this hectic season. Just abandon your dinnertime hustle to the slow cooker glory and keep your sanity and health intact!
