Eating is great, but cooking isn’t always as much fun. If you’re someone who wants to walk in at the end of the day to an already made meal, we highly suggest you invest in a slow cooker.

Slow cookers are affordable, easy to use, and save you a lot of time. Plus, you can make breakfast, lunch, or dinner in them! These slow cooker recipes will convince you that maybe food prepping is the way to go:

Slow Cooker Beef & Broccoli

Why spend the money on takeout when you can make beef & broccoli yourself (and it’ll taste way better).

Crockpot Spaghetti

There’s nothing more annoying than starving and having to wait for the water to boil for pasta. With a slow cooker, you’ll have your pasta ready as soon as you walk through the door.

Crock-Pot Chicken Noodle Soup

All this takes is 10 minutes of prep time and 6 hours in the crock-pot, and you’ve got a comforting and delicious meal ready to go.
