Too Busy to Cook? That's a Crock!

A friend recently said that they don't cook because they "simply don't have time." To that, I call B.S.! Maybe you can't make a Chopped-worthy plate in 15 minutes like professional chefs can, but a simple, healthy meal can definitely come together in 15 minutes. And, if the whole "cooking" process is what's holding you back, I urge you to embrace the art of slow cooking.

By "art" I really mean throw some ingredients in a Crockpot, and leave it to cook for a number of hours and come back to a delicious, perfectly cooked meal. You can make anything from soups to stews to baked goods to ribs to pulled pork (my personal fav). You can even cook a whole chicken in a Crockpot and the meat literally falls off the bone. For a healthy meal, toss some stock, veggies, and protein of your choice in the pot and cook away. If you're feelin' frisky, feel free to add whatever spices or sauces you may want to spice things up a bit, I won't tell! ;) Pin It
