Recipes. For people like me who aren’t really creative in the kitchen, having a recipe to follow is a godsend! Over time, I’ve found that there are some recipes that take me forever to get through and there are other dishes that I can whip up in no time. As a mum looking to save as much time as possible in the kitchen, I know which recipes I’d prefer to use on a regular basis! So over the next few weeks, I thought I’d share 6 of my favourite super quick meal ideas that are my go-tos on a regular basis. Plus, they are healthy and nutritious so they are guaranteed to help you towards your goals. Here’s the first 2 recipes: Recipe #1: Shredded Chicken Ingredients: 1kg chicken thigh or breast (whatever happens to be on special/cheaper that week!) 1 tbsp. miced garlic A sprinkle of salt and pepper Method: Place your chicken into the slow cooker (no need to chop it up) Add garlic, salt and pepper. Place slow cooker on low and leave it for 6-8 hours – you’ll know it’s ready when you can grab a fork and shred it easily. Once it’s ready, grab 2 forks and shred away. You then have chicken ready to go with salads/veggies for the next few days. *You can make the shredded chicken any flavour you want – add some taco seasoning for a Mexican style dish, for example. Also, beef with garlic and soy is really yummy, too! Recipe #2: Roasted Vegetables Ingredients: 1/2 butternut pumpkin, dicedn1 x sweet potaton2 x zucchini, dicedn2 x carrots, dicedn1 x red onion, chopped into large chunksn1 x red capsicum, dicedn1 x green capsicumn1 tbsp. olive oiln1 tbsp. rosemarynSprinkle of salt and pepper Method: Line a baking tray with baking papernPlace all veggies on the tray, as evenly spaced as possiblenSpread your olive oil, rosemary, salt and pepper evenly over the veggiesnCook at 180 degrees for 30-40 minutes Chicken and veggies are so great for you – and by cooking this amount, you’ll have meals for days!
