Stopping for fast food on the way home is an easy option, but an awful habit. Instead, use your slow cooker to avoid the temptation to hit the drive-through after a long day.

Even though eating out takes a toll on your health and your wallet, many of us do it because it's convenient. Instead, throw a meal in your slow cooker before the day starts. You'll beat the convenience of fast food because there'll be a delicious and healthy meal waiting for you when you get home. Plus, you'll save money at the same time. You can even set the table in the morning so when you get home all you have to do is put the food on the plate and enjoy.
If you use a meal-planning routine and food prep once a week, it's even easier. Then you'll just wake up in the morning, throw the ingredients in the pot, set it, and go.
