Crock Pot- The Weeknight Dinner Life Saver

Our Hungry Ghoulash recipe makes for a scrumptious meal!

We may have the best of intentions in the earlier part of the day, but let's face it, by the time six o'clock rolls around the last thing most of us want to do is cook a big meal. Even those of us who love cooking. That's where take out and delivery come in to save the day! Except it's expensive, unhealthy and filled with post pizza, fried chicken, or [insert greasy food of choice here], guilt.

The one guarantee for an effortless and healthy home cooked meal is to have it already made.  Enter, our all too often forgotten best friend, the slow cooker.  There are lots of healthy quick-prep recipes that can be cooking away while you are off doing other things or just taking some time to relax.  Some recipes can even be quickly prepped the night before, so all you have to do in the morning is toss the ingredients into the slow cooker, set it, and go about your day.  Serve with a quick side dish like couscous or a salad and dinner is ready without breaking a sweat.
