National Nutrition Month: Tip #24

Let’s face it. The last thing you want to do after a long day at work is cook dinner. You’re tired and hungry and the drive-through at McDonald’s looks too inviting to pass up. This is where a slow cooker comes in handy! With a little prep in the morning, you could come home to dinner waiting for you. In the winter I love putting soups on low all day. One of the easiest things I do is put chicken in the slow cooker and cover it with salsa. That’s it! When I get home I just chop some lettuce, bell peppers, tomatoes, heat up some beans, chop an avocado, and I have a taco salad!
