I decided to cook some chicken in the crockpot with rosemary, cumin and a small potato. I had some left over refried beans so I put that into the crockpot with some water too! Wow, it made the tastiest sauce for the chicken and potato, came almost out like a bean gravy. To my surprise I up'd my fiber and had a great meal that I would make again. Try it!
Your crew eat differently than you and you don't want to cook two different meals. Just let some dishes pull double duty. When I make a pot of beans I pull mine out when they are done and then add the sausage and things that I don't eat into the main pot. You can also cook a larger batch and pull some out for healthy refried beans.
