One healthy meal a day

Okay here it is.  I have a friend that is not eating well because life sucks sometimes and the time and effort.......blah blah blah.


Crock pot (if you don't have one, get one it is less than $30) 

dump a bag of frozen veggies in the bottom, add 1/4 cup water.

Put in a whole chicken, or I usually load it up with chicken thighs.

Garlic powder, salt, pepper, sage, thyme, oregono, basil.  Any combination of them.

Dump a bag of frozen veggies on top.  Put on the lid and set on low.  It will be ready when you get back.

 Freeze what you don't eat and take as a lunch and eat for dinner.



You forgot to do the crockpot thing and you have frozen chicken or beef....I don't care

Boil it in about 6 cups of water for 20 minutes with salt and any combo of above listed spices OR garlic powder, cumin, hot pepper, salt and pepper. Meanwhile turn on the oven to 400 F.

Ppull it  out of the water, dump a bag or two of frozen veggies and 1-1.5 cups of basmati rice in the water.

Pop the meat in the oven for 15 minutes.

Remove rice and meat from heat.  Eat and freeze.  Lunches and dinners.....


Need more?


Frozen lean burger a skillet , brown and drain. 

Add a bag of frozen mixed veggies and your favorite chili seasoning.  (I do garlic powder, cumin, hot pepper, salt and pepper, and hot pepper....yes lots of hot pepper)  and a 1/2 cup or so of water.  Bring to a boil and let simmer for a few minutes. You can add a can of crushed tomatoes if you want.

Eat on a pita, over rice, or just out of a bowl.


I do so adore you and want what is best for YOU.  EAT right.

Excellent advice. It does not have to be a lot of work to incorporate vegetables into a meal...and not a lot of money either. I just made a turkey spaghetti sauce yesterday. Today I made a bean soup from dry beans, and then added some of the sauce for more veggies and flavor. Some will get refashioned into chili later. That pound of ground turkey can go a long ways and still give you a lot of nutritious meals. The best part is not much fussing, pealing or pot watching, especially with a crockpot!!

I love the Day 1 and Day 2 suggestions - both of them easy and they sound good. You have inspired me to get my boneless, skinless chicken breasts into a crock pot with some veggies - JUST DO IT!!!
Thanks!! By the way, I'm on Day 3 of dieting and Day 3 of being a MFP member. I think this is going to be great!!!

Funny, I just did that. Chicken crockin' now with tomatoes, peppers, onions and garlic.

For the crockpot, I often use low sodium, plain tomato soup instead of water. It's low calorie and adds some flavor. You're right, it's not that hard to prepare a good, healthy meal...besides, we are worth the effort!
