I am extremely busy right now. I have just found a retail studio space for my children’s portrait studio which I hope to open by the end of the month. I also attend school online, have a 4 bedroom house to take care of, 2 children and a husband. Obviously things can fall behind really quickly. The number one way I feel like I’m failing my family is if everyone comes home around dinner, and they ask “so what’s for dinner?” and I honestly can’t say! I then have to do the kitchen cupboard shuffle and whip something up real quick. It’s never very healthy because it almost always has to come out of a box of some sort. Not exactly mother/wife of the year.
Enter the crockpot. I absolutely LOVE my crockpot! On days that I know I’m going to be busy I put all my ingredients into my crockpot, turn it on low and go about my day. 8 hours later the house smells fantastic and I have a healthy meal for my family.
Here is a pdf document with over 250 weight watchers crockpot recipes. Even if your not following weight watchers its nice to know all the recipes in this document are low-fat and healthy for your family.
Definitely works for me!
