Cabbage Rolls

Cabbage rolls can offer a series of boosting proteins. This would be considered a hearty meal, or a main dish. However, this will help out on those days where the slow cooker is the only thing to turn to because of a long day. While this can make up to 6 servings, this could also be a meal prep dish since the cabbage rolls can go in the freezer. By the end of the week, you can bring out the rest and enjoy!

Take the stress out of your day and bring out the slow cooker! We all could use a little helping hand every now and then.
