Busy week? Prep ahead!

We’re always looking for ways to reduce time in the kitchen and simplify healthy eating, especially throughout the week. While this meal is super simple to toss together, it can be prepped the night before to save on time. Add all the slow cooker ingredients to your slow cooker dish, cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, cook as directed. 

Freezer-friendly

Last night, we made chili and had enough leftover to feed an army. So we don’t get sick of it, we freeze some in a huge mason jar for dinner down the road. Leave a 2-inch clearance between the top of the jar and the chili. Frozen liquid expands, so don’t overfill it or the jar will crack.

Some favorite ways to top your chili:

  • Plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • Freshly grated cheese (some of our favorites are aged smoked cheddar and 2-year-aged extra-sharp cheddar)
  • Scallions
  • Chives
  • ParsleyPrint
