5 of my Favorite Healthy Crock Pot Meals

I love a good crock pot meal that I can prep and let cook while I’m at work or running errands. These are some of my favorites from some awesome fellow bloggers:

Clean Eating Turkey Meatballs from Gracious Pantry
These are epic. I’m Italian, and I know a good meatball when I taste one, and these are so good. I usually cook whole wheat or gluten free pasta to go along with them. During the week I just eat them by themselves, they are so good! Gracious Pantry is one of my favorite food blogs. There have been weeks were I’ve made her recipes 5 days in a row. You’ll see lots of tweets from me with her recipes in them!

Gluten-free Crockpot Lasagna from G Free Laura
I tried this recipe for the first time last week – it was delicious. Both my husband and 1 year old son loved it. It was about 6 servings, enough for about 2 full dinners for my clan. I love crockpot meals that provide leftovers. 

Clean Eating Crock Pot Beef Fajitas from Stacy Makes Cents
This meal makes ‘Taco Tuesday’ a great day! Usually leftovers are available for the next day. 

Crock Pot Kansas City BBQ & Bacon Chicken Sandwich by The Frugal Girls
I made this once a week when I was home on maternity leave because it was so easy to prep with a newborn at home. The bacon make these epic sandwiches. I didn’t use onion and I used Stubb’s gluten free BBQ sauce (or any other clean BBQ sauce will do). Paired with whole wheat buns make it a somewhat healthy dinner (with the appropriate amount of bacon).

Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe by Tips from a Typical Mom
This is one of my go-to Fall and Winter recipes. It freezes really well and so easy to defrost for quick dinner. 

Gotta start somewhere

My name is Angela and I’m a full time mother, wife and sales woman. So basically, I’m nuts! But I love it. Recently I was looking for other ‘working mom blogs’ to read and they were far and few between. So, I decided to recruit some friends and start one!

The Non-Housewives blog is all about women just trying to fit it all in. Who’s really ‘just a housewife’ anymore (besides the Bravo ladies)?? Women wear all kinds of hats these days. Mother, wife, provider, and don’t get me started on what we do to keep our household running smoothly.

I think it will be fun to hear from other moms on how they are keeping it all together. I hope to cover a variety of topics…from quick recipes to laundry hacks to product round ups and more, I hope everyone finds something helpful from this blog to make their lives a little easier.
