Slow cook your way to sanity

I am a summer girl through and through, there is no doubt about that. I love the warm weather, lazy beach days, and lighter fare. But with the summer coming to a close and the kids getting ready to head back to school in just a few weeks. It has got me a little excited for a different season. Looking ahead at my calendar I know we are going to be running from soccer to karate to everything else life has for us these last few months before the end of the year.

I know that cooking dinner each night  will not really be an option. Since, I’ve got some fitness goals and my tribe depending on me, we won’t be eating take out or fast food on the reg. This means I’ve got to get proactive and ahead of the curve. Where do I turn? My Crockpot (I haven’t quite made the leap to the InstantPot just yet..but thinking that will be on the top of my Christmas list this year).

Meal planning is something I do pretty regularly, but I need something that will make weeknight dinners much easier. Let’s talk about the slow cooker. When you first hear the word crockpot what kinds of images does that conjure? If you’re like me, maybe you think of hearty and (often) fat laden dishes with tons of cheese or heavy sauces. Well, on my journey of living a healthier life, I have learned that there is almost always a way to lighten a dish without losing all the flavor.

One of the best things about learning is also sharing. One of my all time favorite slow cooker dishes is Slow Cooker Enchiladas. It lacks nothing in flavor, but is a much cleaner and lighter alternative to ones you might find at your favorite Mexican restaurant. Bonus: my kids LOVE it! If you have littles of your own or other picky eaters in your life, then you know that makes any recipe worthy of a try.

Want more inspiration on healthy slow cooker meals, fitness, clean eating, and more? Maybe you just want a tribe to belong to that is on a similar journey to you? I know it is not always easy to stick to your fitness goals when you’re on your own, that is why I want to invite you to join me and my tribe for 5 days of crock pot meals, inspiration, and quick home workouts you can do anywhere.
