If you are like me, your week is hectic, and sometimes you run later than you should due to traffic, needing to fishing things up at work, errand at last minute, etc. It feels like we have so little time at night when we get home, esp when you have kids who are definitely on a schedule to get to bed for tomorrow. Trying to fix a healthy meal with little time at night doesn’t leave a lot of time for homework help/review, reading bedtime stories, bath time, or for yourself.
What has really helped us is starting to use our crock pot as much as possible. Once a month, one of our awesome coaches hosts a 5 Day Clean Eating Crock Pot group. I have picked up some get recipes in there, and of course just googling clean eating crock pot meals. I prefer ones that have less ingredients, that are easy to just toss in the bag and be done.

I love using these Recipe Ready Pepper Strips and Onion Blend bags for fajitas!
Mincing garlic doesn’t necessarily take a lot of work, but it’s an extra step or two between pealing, mincing cleaning the mincer. This is just so easy to use a spoonful or two and be done.
