I've fallen in love with my crockpot We've been making a ton of meals in it lately, and its become a near permanent appliance in my kitchen. I think its time to begin to look into some new crockpot recipes that could be frozen ahead of time. I think these would be perfect for days where I just wont have a ton of time to cook. I'd love to be able to fill my freezer with items that are quick and easy-but not full of preservatives and weird ingredients that I can't pronounce!
So over the next few days I plan to occupy myself by creating some crock pot frozen meals. I'm hoping to keep them simple, practical, and healthy! Wish me luck! And of course, i will share them here when I am done!
I've had two amazing dishes today that left my blood sugar at 96 following breakfast and following lunch. Thought I would pass them along! Eggs are only so fun for so long for breakfast and lunch items were beginning to get redundant too!
Lunch: Low Carb Pizza
Ingredients: one low carb tortilla, sauce, cheese, any toppings you desire
Directions: spray pan with pam. top tortilla with sauce, cheese, and any other toppings you desire. Spray crust with pam. Put into oven or toaster oven for 5 mins. Enjoy! Total carbs: approx 20
I really wanted pizza today so came up with this on a whim. I topped mine with goat cheese. It was super yummy and ridiculously filling!! I actually made the tortilla myself and have additional ones frozen. I will post a recipe for these soon! Add additional items to make carb count go up I may have to make it again for dinner!
Breakfast: Cream cheese pancakes
Ingredients: 2 oz cream cheese, 2 eggs, 1 packet stevia (or any artificial sugar-or real sugar since you have carbs to spare!)
Directions: Mix together in blender. Let sit for a few mins to decrease bubbles. Cook on stove like you would a regualar pancake. Makes 4 small pancakes...total carbs- approx 5g.
Found this on Pinterest...from this amazing website called I Breathe...I'm Hungry This was sooo good! Again add additional items to increase the carbs- a great way to do this is toppings-I topped it with a 1/2 cup of homemade ice cream (haha it was delicious). You could top it with fruit, whipped cream/Cool Whip, or sugar free syrup. Definitely filling since it has lots of protein, but didnt make me feel sleepy like normal pancakes do!
The pic on the left is what they were SUPOSE to look like....my pic is on the right. My pic makes this look a little more yellow than they truly did, and I got impatient and flipped them too soon so they didn't come out quite round, but they were still delicious!!
