Let’s all be honest with ourselves, the last two things we want to do after a long day’s work is cook and clean. The cleaning is something that can be delegated to a local service provider or the kids but I can’t imagine the expense of having a live in chef. An effortless go-to meal at my house is pizza; it’s not the healthiest thing, especially three nights in a row.
However, if I told you that there are tons of meals that can be easily prepared would you get a little more excited about fixing dinner?
First, my dinner superhero is my crockpot. I usually try to prepare all the ingredients that I can the night before. Some recipes even allow me to put everything in the crockpot’s removable dish and store it in the fridge until morning. I simply switch it on, go to work and by the time I come home dinner is ready. Crockpot meal possibilities are nearly endless. There are tons of delicious recipes that can be prepared almost effortlessly. My favorite crockpot meal is chicken enchilada casserole. Allrecipes.com is my go-to site because of their large slow cooker recipe collection.
If you are slow cooker-less, don’t fret! There are plenty of fast recipes that will have dinner served in no time. Tasty25 Magazine prides themselves on providing healthy meal ideas that can be prepared in 25 minutes or less. They even share user submitted recipes, so you can be sure that their meal database is always growing. They don’t only provide recipe ideas; their website has a lot of diet related cooking tips too.
In case you were worried about never eating pizza again, here is a healthy homemade spin on pizza night from Tasty25. Pizza will always have a spot in my weekly meal plan, but I’m happier when it is guiltless. Housework can be done on the weekends; dinner is an everyday thing in my house.
