One of my ultimate pet peeves is when people say “I’m too busy to eat healthy/ cook my own food”.
Uhhhhhh…newsflash everyone is busy!
There are seriously some days where I wake up at 5:00 am to blog, leave for work at 8:00 am, get off work at 5:30 pm, sit in traffic and drive to yoga at 7:00 pm then get home at around 8:30 pm and STILL cook myself a healthy meal because I value my health.
The goal of this post is not to make you all feel guilty or like you’re lazy because lets be honest… it’s freakin’ hard to think of quick, healthy meals that taste good! My goal is to give you a little inspiration and a few ideas of easy, healthy meals that you can make in 10 minutes or less. Oh and to make your lives even easier all the ingredients for these recipes can be found at Trader Joe’s.
When I got home from work last night the thermostat in my apartment said it’s 90 degrees.
WHAT!?!?! Calm down San Diego I didn’t realize I was living in a hot yoga studio.
The last thing I want to do when it’s already that hot is turn on my oven or stand over a hot stove cooking dinner. In fact, I’d honestly probably rather starve.
So to solve this issue I’ve turned to my trusty crockpot!
Yep, crockpots are not just for hot winter soups. They’re also an absolute life saver in the hot summer months when you don’t want your house turning into a sauna.
To fight the heat Bryce and I have been living off my Salsa Chicken recipe. We’ve used it for burritos, tacos, protein style tacos, salads, scrambled with eggs, plain, burrito bowls…really anything you can add chicken to. So when I was thinking of my third and final recipe to share for my One Meal Two Ways series it was obvious it had to be my Salsa Chicken for a little One Meal 20 Ways action haha.
