Using the crockpot on a weekend night is a great way to cut your kitchen time in half during dinner time. Pulled pork is a crock pot favorite for us and this week I used a flourless wrap for a nutritional boost in this meal. Read more

I’m always looking to add greens to meals and adding spinach into pasta sauce is an easy way to bump up the nutritional profile of this dish.
You could be eating in 30 minutes or less. All you need are the 4 ingredients below. Baby spinach, pasta sauce, whole grain (wheat or gluten-free) rotini pasta, and ground turkey. I recommend Plainville Farms ground turkey since they are a certified humanely raised, antibiotic and hormone free company. Read more

Less dirty dishes to wash, how wacky is that?! Read more
