Also.. I have a Savory Carrot Air Fryer recipe to share with you today! Enjoy!
Slow Cooker: Known commercially as a CrockPot, a slow cooker is still a great go-to tool. Before you leave for work in the morning, you can throw in any combination of meats, vegetables, and seasonings, and then return home to find it has turned into slowly cooked, low carb perfection. Try four chicken breasts and a jar of salsa verde to make taco meat. Add stew meat with mushrooms and beef stock to make a nice stroganoff. There are plenty of options for those who are cutting carbs, and they are all time savers.
Pressure Cooker: Just when you thought you loved your slow cooker, its hot younger sibling makes an appearance. Though they are not really a new tool, they are now wildly popular. A pressure cooker can create the same low carb, high protein recipes that a slow cooker can only faster. That stroganoff recipe will be cut down from a 6-hour simmer to about 30 minutes depending on the brand of pressure cooker you purchase.
Air Fryer: One common mistake people make when it comes to prepping the evening’s dinner is forgetting to take something out of the freezer. If you had some chicken sausages that did not thaw in time, you may be tempted to hit that fast food spot which will not help you reach your health goals. In comes the air fryer. Its ability to cook from frozen is why this product has quickly become a favorite.
Any one of these tools will be a great addition to your kitchen and will go along way to save some time and improve your health. If you find it tough to follow a healthy eating plan, consider meal options that are quick and tasty, and you will soon see that there is no need to hit that drive through after all.
