As a mother, I am always looking for ways to save time, especially in the kitchen. And as you all know, the crockpot has been my best friend for a few weeks now. I love it, you can make effortless, delicious and healthy meals in just minutes.
The other day I was in the mood for pasta and meatballs. How the heck do I make that healthy?
Well, I found this great recipe on Skinny Taste for meatballs and I made it over to be HEALTHY & FIT, so here it is. I served this with brown rice pasta, added some greens and it was one delicious, healthy and comforting meal. I urge you to try it, because it is insanely good.
