Alicia Jaybird Posted May 23, 2012 Share Posted May 23, 2012 This post is a spin-off of a request in the "Off Track/Staying on Track" category. Lack of preparation and stress are the two factors that make it easiest for me to go tumbling off track. I mentioned in that thread that making meals in the slow cooker and portioning them out to eat later in the week or freeze for a mental rainy day is my best response. On that note, I'd love for this post to be a round up of many Whole30ers favorite slow cooker recipes or tips. My one not-exactly-a-recipe slow cooker tip is to throw chopped carrots, celery, and onions in the bottom of a crockpot. Put a 3-4 lb beef roast in on top of the vegetables. Add salt, pepper, and whatever spices you desire. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Voila! The slow cooker makes everything so simple. Here are a couple easy to follow recipes that I've enjoyed: Crock Pot Lemon Pepper Chicken from the Food Lovers' Primal Palate (so easy, moist, and deeelish) http://www.primal-palate.com/2012/01/crock-pot-lemon-pepper-chicken.html Top Sirloin Roast from Rubies and Radishes http://www.rubiesandradishes.com/my-blog/2011/04/grock-pot-top-sirloin-roast.html To make my Whole30 version of a TV dinner, I'd steam some kale or spinach and maybe make a roasted vegetable mash, then fill Pyrex or Tupperware containers with all three, refrigerate til chilled, then freeze. It is wonderful to be able to come home after a long day, thaw a container from the freezer, and go to town. It feels like cheating because there's no cooking involved at the moment I'm most stressed! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
