Our lives are busy. Careers, kids, and commutes seem to take up most of our waking hours, so its not surprising that many of us feel like we don’t have time to cook. We’re all aware that processed and convenience foods can’t play a major role in a healthy lifestyle, so we must figure out a way to prepare our food in the limited time that we have. Below are two recipes that require less than five minutes of prep time and yield proteins that may be used in several ways.
Nom Nom Paleo’s Kalua Pig is a tasty recipe for pork that can be consumed right out of the slow cooker. Or, it can easily be turned into carnitas or even topped with barbeque sauce. The pork has a smoky flavor and also pairs well with eggs for a protein-packed breakfast. The recipe yields a lot of meat, so it's a perfect option for beginning of the week meal prep.
Gimme Some Oven’s 2-Ingredient Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken is another quick and easy option that produces a versatile protein. The shredded chicken is great on it’s own, or it may be topped with avocado and tomato for a quick and easy nutrient-dense meal. It’s also great on salads or with eggs, and most kids love it for a family-style taco night. It's another great option for meal prep day.
