Who has the time?
We know you are busy, have a life and do not want to spend all of your spare time in the kitchen cooking.
We have removed all the fuss and comprised a blog post of quick meals and time-saving tips for healthy eating. So dust off the ol' crock pot and try one of these 4 time-saving crock pot recipes when on the go:
· Place trimmed pork tenderloin in crock pot; cover with HEB’s “That Green Sauce” – cook on low all day. When you get home, shred the pork with 2 forks; mix in a container of HEB premade pico de gallo (produce section); serve on corn tortillas; top with lime juice and queso fresco
· Place frozen chicken breasts in crock pot; cover with a jar of your favorite salsa – cook on low all day. When you get home, shred the chicken with 2 forks and serve on corn tortillas OR with a side of Uncle Ben’s 90 second brown rice.
· Place trimmed pork tenderloin in crock pot; cover with your favorite BBQ sauce – cook on low all day. When you get home, shred the pork with 2 forks. Serve on whole wheat sandwich thins with pickles/mustard (as desired) with a side of canned whole beans.
· Cut a spaghetti squash in ½ and scoop out the seeds. Place cut sides down in Crock Pot. Add a jar of pasta sauce – cook on low all day. When you get home, brown 1# of 96% lean ground beef. Use a fork to scrape out the “noodly” part of the squash, discard the rind; add the ground beef to the squash “noodles” and sauce – pasta-free “spaghetti” is served!
