Slow Cooker: Pineapple Salsa Chicken

Creating a stockpile of healthy recipes is essential for a busy family! If you’re looking to fill up that recipe box with quick on-the-go meals, this recipe fits the bill. A fresh take on the Americana “sloppy joes,” you’ll swap out ground beef for some white meat and a sweet pineapple salsa. You will need ample time to let all those flavors simmer together in a slow cooker, so be sure to start preparation in time for the crockpot to cook overnight or while the kiddos are at school. Serve with a flour tortilla or sans bread, either way is delicious! Happy cooking!PineappleSalsaChicken1_horRESIZED

Simple Watermelon Feta Salad

This past Monday was National Watermelon Day, and you might be asking yourself why a fruit deserves it’s very own day of recognition. While watermelon is almost entirely made of water (about 92%), it is also full of Vitamin A, B6 and C, not to mention antioxidants and amino acids. That’s something to celebrate! To keep in line with the watermelon celebration, this recipe goes beyond eating a slice on a hot day. Watermelon receives a new look and taste when paired with feta and balsamic vinegar for a lovely salad. Serve as a side to your latest grilled masterpiece or as an appetizer at your summer gathering. It’s sure to be a hit!
