Can’t seem to make meal prep happen? Click here to join the One Big Batch Challenge and discover just how easy homemade meals can be!

Fall has finally hit, here in Toronto at least, and winter is right around the corner! You know what that means – pumpkin spiced everything, #bundled and more importantly (in my opinion), it’s slow cooker season!

Slow cookers, also known as Crock-Pots, are one of the best and easiest ways to make meal preparation happen. No matter your cooking skill level or time constraints, these big pots are simple to use and will feed you all week.

I invite you to use the change in seasons as an opportunity to introduce a new, nourishing habit. And if more homemade meals is that habit – I’m challenging you to plan and prepare at least one big batch recipe in the month of November.

Pick a slow cooker prep day, throw on your favorite tunes, podcast or background Netflix show, and see for yourself if it helps fuel you throughout the week.

To officially join the challenge, get in touch and tell me what recipe you’ll be making. I’ll follow-up with you at the end of November to check-in with how your slow cooker experiment unfolded. Accountability for the win!

P.S. The article I wrote for November’s “Nourish” column in Toronto’s Tonic Magazine is a personal one. I share the mistakes I made while dieting – and what I learned from each one. So if you’re struggling, I hope this peek into my past helps you to feel less alone. If you’d like, you can read the article online here
