It is fun to try new healthy recipes. Sometimes, you find a recipe that is a real keeper!

I like to use my Sundays to make meals for the rest of the week. I chop my veggies and put them in plastic storage bowls for my lunches. I cook one thing in the slow cooker to eat on all week. I portion it out for my meals so I never over eat it.
Plastic storage containers, slowcooker, and a meal plan.
