Welcome to WINTER WEEK 1

We thought we would start the season off by bringing out the slow cooker. There is something so satisfying about walking in the door after a busy day to the aroma of dinner already done. 

Why not make the most of our meal prep guide and you’ll feel like you are totally winning at life – or at least weeknight dinners. With all your prep done, you simply need to add it to the slow cooker in the morning and some veggies to the slow cooker half hour before dinner time. Saving you so much time, energy and cleaning.
