Let me reveal a very helpful meal prep hack that will help you spend less time cooking, while having more healthy food to eat.
One of my favorite kitchen appliances that makes meal prep so easy, tasty, and of course, healthy is the slow cooker, also known as the crock pot.
So if you’re looking to Live Lean, you need to start planning your meals and preparing them in advance. Meal prep is one of the most effective ways to lose body fat and build lean muscle.
One simple way to do this is using a slow cooker. It’s one of the easiest ways to meal prep and cook in bulk. Also, most slow cooker recipes are lower calorie as no added oils, butters, or sauces are required to keep the food moist, since the juices from the meat help.
To really take advantage of slow cooker, make sure you add a lot of ingredients to cook in bulk, then store the left overs in the fridge or freezer. That way, you can take them to work, or eat later as a quick snack on the go.
Healthy slow cooker recipes that are so easy and tasty:
Slow cooker recipe #1: Tri-tip beef with vegetables

1. Add the tri-tip beef to the slow cooker.

One of the best features about using your slow cooker is that you literally don’t have to touch it during the hours it’s cooking.
There’s little to no chance it’s going to burn, as long as you use enough liquid, since the heat turns off automatically when the timer is done.
Once the tri-tip beef is finished cooking, the meat just falls apart, and makes the whole house smell so good.
This slow cooker recipe is just awesome.
Slow cooker recipe #2: Pork tenderloin with vegetables

Cook Time: 6 hours
– 3 lbs pork loin
– 24 oz tomato sauce (with olive oil, not soybean oil)
– 2 sliced Zucchini

5. Stir it up to make sure the tomato sauce is covering all the ingredients.
