If you are anything like me, by the time it is dinner time I do not want to cook. I just want the food done. Kids are screaming, its getting later, and as the pressure builds the chances of me making something healthy drop to almost 0. So that is why our family is a crockpot family. Food goes in (typically with little to no prep) and magically at dinner time there is a hot juicy meal ready to go with no mess. The crockpot is probably responsible for saving my marriage, my abs, and possibly keeping my children alive. So here are 29 easy, healthy crock pot recipes. All the recipes could be made healthier or tastier by subbing certain ingredients according to your preferences and dietary goals. Hope this helps you to lose some fat, build some muscle, and be a better mom/dad/spouse/parent!
