Build your meal on lean meat, fish or poultry and add in some crispy veggies. Meat cooked in a slow cooker comes out moist and tender and it’s ready when you walk in the door.
Get efficient. Cook once for up to three meals. For example, bake chicken on Monday and have Chicken Marsala that night, slice for Chicken Salad Santa Fe the next night and chop and freeze chicken for Chicken Chili on Friday night. Cook once and eat three times. Keep on hand the ingredients for two or more healthy recipes that your family loves and it will be easier to resist the draw of fast food.
