Crock Pot Taco Chicken

As you can see my recipes have gotten fewer and shorter 🙂  My time to blog has definitely taken a back seat with the birth of Charlee. However, it does not mean that my passion for healthy meals has gone to the wayside.  I now look for super convenient, healthy fixins…the crock pot has become my best friend.  Therefore, when my pal and mom of twins shared this “way-to-easy-to-be-true” recipe, I knew I had to try.  It has now become a weekly staple and I love to pass along to other busy moms and dads. 
Crock Pot Taco Chicken
Ingredients:
2-3 frozen chicken breast
about half a package of taco seasoning
about 1/3-1/2 C salsa
Instructions:
Place chicken in crock pot.  Cover with seasoning and salsa.  Set crock pot on low and cook for about 6 hours.  The chicken will just fall about when done. 

I use this chicken all week to make tacos, taco salad, on top quinoa, enchiladas…the possibililies are endless 🙂
I hope you enjoy as much as we do! 
Cheers to healthy and convenient meals! 

Until next time…
Look good, feel good, do good

Taco Night!

Taco night is a popular night in most households.  For mom, it’s an easy dinner to whip up. For kids, it’s fun to create your own meal and eat with your fingers!  There are a few things that can help turn your regular taco night into a “healthified” taco night.

Taco tips:
-Choose whole grain tortillas: I like Stacey’s organics @ Gateway Market or Trader Joe’s has some nice varieties. 
-Ground beef: good-93%, better-96%, best-grass fed ground beef (I buy from Wallace Farms)
-Choose 2% cheese or better yet omit all together
-Make your own refried beans by mashing up black beans
-Salsa is a wonderful condiment so nothing to change there however you can use fresh tomatoes for a low sodium option
-Diced avocado for a healthy fat addition

Enjoy!
What is your favorite item to top a taco with? J would say Cholula!

Until next time…
look good, feel good, do good
