I am a big advocate of cooking as much at home as possible. My weekly goal is to cook Sunday through Thursday every night. I usually grab lunch when I’m out and about so eating out twice a day sounds horrible and it’s extremely hard to eat half way healthy when you get into that habit. The only way for me to make this possible is to meal plan weekly.
Every Saturday or Sunday, I sit down with my Carrie Elle Meal Planner and write out what is for dinner every single night and make a grocery list. I shop on Sunday and try to prep as much of the food as possible. I’ll brown all the ground beef and chop vegetables. If I’m feeling extra organized, I’ll portion out the vegetables for each meal so I don’t have to do much every night except throw it all together.
I would not be able to cook every single night without adding a few crock pot meals in my meal plans weekly. I usually try to choose about 2 crock pot recipes a week to cook and one of those is always an easy dump and go meal where I have to do nothing except put all contents in the crock pot and leave it.
Nothing beats coming home from working all day, running errands or even doing nothing and having your meal completely made for you. It’s seriously the best thing ever. I’ve gathered about 20 crock pot recipes that are great to add to your weekly meals. They’re not only delicious but will make the whole family happy!
