Crock Pot Cooking on the healthy side

Why Crockpot?

If you know me at all you know I am a crazy planner and prepper. Which is really intimidating sometimes. But as I wrote in this blog it is not because I am organized it is because I am LAZY! While I use my crockpots all year round. Fall and Winter even more. Easy planning ahead. Cook for the whole week or even the month. Using your crockpot means you can put it all in and all away for hours to do other things. Making healthy and easy meals for the whole family

Sunday Protein Prep

First things 1st I have 5 crock pots. 3 Smaller ones and 2 large. I love to cook large amounts of chicken breasts, Lean beef and beans.


I like to use my smaller crockpots and make several different types. So put 3 chicken breasts (whole to shread) or cut into strips or cubes depending on how you are going to use it. You can add then frozen or fresh. I also cook chicken breasts in the crock pot for 4 hours and then throw on the grill for a minute or 2 to get the grill flavor. Then I know they are cooked through.
