Minestrone is my very favorite soup but I can’t say I love the sodium in the canned version. I wanted to make something that could easily be stored and eaten when I’m craving something warm and comforting. I adapted a recipe from Taralynn McNitt (www.simplytaralynn.com) that makes 32 servings. Be careful! This almost didn’t fit in my crockpot. Again, this is something I prepped the night before.
I said I love cheese and pasta right?! This dish is perfect for pasta lovers and is a great way to sneak in some protein. Protein is something I’ve always struggled getting in. I’m not much of a meat eater. In fact, I typically only each white meat and fish! This dish took a bit more time and effort but I have leftovers available now for the next week! Again, I prepped my meat the night before to save time after work.
If there’s one thing I love, it’s pasta and cheese. I wanted to find a dish with balance where I could enjoy both of these things. I tried this chicken parmesan bake from Skinny Taste and was not disappointed. So glad I had leftovers!! This recipe is quick and easy to make after work or school.
I’ve never been one to do much cooking. Fast food or top ramen was always so much easier and tasted just fine. I knew I needed to make a change though, if I was going to live healthier.
Heres my start to much healthier eating:
Turkey Chili is amazing in the winter and warms you right up. Besides some prepping, it’s so easy to just throw everything in the crockpot and let it cook all day. I prepped my ground turkey and veggies the night before so that I could just throw everything in on my lunch break. It sure made my apartment smell delicious all day and I definitely wasn’t disappointed.
