Hi! You can call me Mrs. Motivated– or Sarah would do just fine. My goal is to humbly present and motivate all of you health-oriented mothers with recipes and fitness tips that can easily be applied to your lives each week. Being a military spouse, I am cost-conscious, and as a mother to a nine month old boy, I prefer things that are quick and easy to do.
This week I am trying to use up all of my food items in the refrigerator before going to the store to buy more groceries. I find that more often than not, I tend to buy more than I need and then end up throwing out the expired food that I didn’t use. So yesterday I scoured the kitchen and stumbled upon these random ingredients that I used to make dinner: pork chops, baby carrots, an onion, and a can of tomatoes.
Walla, I decided to make an Easy Crock Pot Pork Stew! A low cost and low cal recipe for you moms. I only used what I had available at home– so you could definitely improve this recipe by adding more vegetables–but it still came out tasty! My point is to not be afraid to dig through your cabinets and see what’s going to waste in order to experiment with a new meal. Your Crock Pot will be your best friend when it comes to this method of cooking. Stews are so simple to make and a perfect end to a cold winter day.
