Long and busy days make it difficult to put a healthy meal on the table at night. Most crock pot recipes are too heavy and rich to fall in line with your fat loss plans. The combination makes it dang near impossible to juggle all the balls. Unless, you have 5 crock pot recipes that will get you lean and mean. These are five of the best crock pot recipes that I have found around the web, and want to share them with you!
Chicken fajitas are a meal that the entire family can get into. Wrap this delicious combination in corn tortillas or put it over some brown rice to have a well-rounded, delicious meal! For the not as health conscious people at your table, you can put out flour tortillas, sour cream, and cheese. To add a little something extra to yours, plop a tablespoon of guacamole on top for an extra delicious factor.
Stuffed peppers are a classic healthy dinner. However, they can be A LOT of work. These will take a little bit of time to put together, but you can do that the night before or even on Sunday. Just pop them into the crock pot in the morning and you will come home to deliciousness. The healthy carbs, fats, and proteins in this meal will keep you full and satisfied. Plus, you can always take the left overs to work for lunch the next day!
Lasagna is the perfect comfort food. This one is even vegetarian friendly as well as being healthy! Packed full of nutrients with the veggies, you will get a delicious meal that will make the body feel good. A little bit of melted cheese on top and you will go straight to heaven!
Tacos. I don’t know if there is a meal more well liked than tacos. Taco Tuesday is a thing. So why not make it healthy? Tacos are surprisingly easy to make into a healthy meal, and one that can be made in the crock pot. These crock pot recipes are going to hit the mark with not only you but your family as well, so making a well-liked meal like tacos will be a winner. Use soft corn tortillas, guac, lettuce, tomatoes, or other veggies to top those tacos instead of cheese and sour cream. Dig in!
Buffalo. Chicken. Sweet Potato. Need I say more? These would be SUCH a perfect football food! I love them on the weeknight as well, but when I sat down to write this post I realized they would be BOMB football food. Warm, hearty, and flat out delicious. Plus, even your manly man is going to enjoy the spice of these little beauties. You can crank up the carbs by using large sweet potatoes or dial them down by using small sweet potatoes. you could even put the chicken over mashed sweet potato if that is more your thing. The best thing about these is that they are versatile and yummy!
