Easy Breezy Chicken Tacos

Here's a recipe for the easiest tacos you may ever make! It's a crock pot recipe, and for me, that makes it that much better! (I LOVE my crock pot!)

3 chicken breasts (can even be frozen)
1 jar of salsa
flour tortillas or corn if you'd like
shredded lettucs
cut up tomatoes
shredded cheese
anything else you enjoy on your tacos

-Place the chicken breasts in the crock pot
-Pour almost one jar of salsa over the top (save the rest for the tacos)
-Let it go on low all day long- about 8 hours or you could do high for 5 hours

And that's it! Once the chicken is done, you can make tacos out of the tortillas (the corn probably need to be hardened in some hot oil, or just buy the already made taco shells), put on the lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese. And wallah! That would be a great meal to bring to someone too!

I hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful Fall season, and have a safe and Happy Halloween! :)

Website to Help Make Healthier Food Choices

Hi everyone! I hope you're all doing well on this wonderful weekend.

I wanted to share a favorite website of one of our Foodtidings friends, Andrea. It's called Family Food Experts, and it's filled with helpful information regarding healthy food choices. Their site says they "provide healthier food solutions kids love to eat", and it looks to be so true! There are some great recipes, they have a blog, and the two creators of the site are passionate about getting the word out to help others create healthier lifestyles for families in the food department.

They even created a "kid kritics approved" seal that can be found on healthy foods in your local grocery store. Here's what the site says about the seal:
"We created the Kid Kritics Seal in order to make your healthy food choices easier. When you see our seal it shows that the product meets all of our ingredient standards, and has been blind taste tested by at least 70% of our Kid Kritics (5-14 years.) Watch for this seal on products in your stores, so you know it's a good buy!"
Click here for the link for the current list of Kid Kritic approved foods. I think that is such a wonderful thing, and I'll be keeping my eye out in the grocery store for the seal!

There are so many wonderful things about this site, and I know each time I go to it, I'll find more to learn. I'm very interested in making healthy food choices for me and my family, and this site will help me in my journey. Thank you Andrea, for the site suggestion!
