Super busy and trying to get a lot done in a little bit of time? That’s us too! So, I have been trying to figure out healthy, quick meals that I can make at home for my family. I have been using the crock-pot a lot lately and trying to find some new dishes that my family likes. I want to share a couple recipes each week that have worked for us. I have some picky eaters so, I sometimes make little changes to the recipes, but for the most part they will eat some part of what I make.
Earlier this week I made this recipe. My husband said pot roast sounded good for a meal this week when I asked him for ideas. I found this at the store, bought the meat, some potatoes and carrots along with an onion and that’s it. I put it all in the crock pot for 8 hours and dinner was served. My girls and I are not really meat eaters but the house smelled so good and my husband thought it was very tasty! The ingredients were pretty clean with no corn syrup or hydrogenated yuck.
Another quick recipe I make weekly is put a pound of chicken in the crock pot top it with salsa and a little bit of water and let it simmer for 6-8 hours. You can then use this for just about anything. My girls love it plain, sometimes we make nachos out of it and once I made a yummy, healthy chicken salad the next day. This dish is usually sugar free, gluten free and soy free. Check your salsa to be sure because that’s where those things would be hiding out. Sometimes I use regular salsa and sometimes salsa verde. In the batch below I used salsa verde. After it was cooked I just shredded it with a fork.
Next What’s For Dinner post will have Pasta Bake and Lemon Chicken!
