Clean Crockpot Recipes

During the holidays it’s essential to have a healthy eating plan! It can be so tough with parties & treats to stay on track & I definitely need an action plan of healthy dinners all set to go!

I also love my crockpot! We’re always busy in our household now that my kids are getting more involved with sports so crockpot meals just make sense!

All of these crockpot meals are healthy & can be used while doing the 21 Day Fix program! Remember, it’s all about portion sizes!!
