Slow Cooker Meals

Slow Cooker Pulled PorkThis slow cooker pulled pork is a great recipe to make ahead of time. It can be used in so many different ways. You can enjoy it alongside a salad for a quick dinner, make pulled pork tacos, or my personal favourite is to make pulled pork nachos, using organic corn chips, a big fresh salad and guacamole - delish!
Homemade Bone BrothBone broth is a superfood in my eyes, especially when it’s made from scratch. It packs a mighty nutritional punch and supports gut health, immune health, skin health, and is anti-inflammatory. Nutritional benefits: Bone broth is mineral rich, because minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, phosphorus leach out from the bones. These minerals help to replenish your electrolytes. It’s a rich source of collagen and gelatin, two nutrients which are important for connective tissue health, thus supporting gut health and hair, skin and nails (if you’ve got gut issues, bone broth should be on your menu often)! It’s high in glycine, an amino acid also important for connective tissue health (making bone broth great for anyone with arthritis). Glycine is also needed in high amounts for pregnant women. It’s also a good source of protein, with 1 cup containing approximately 7-8g of protein. Here is my go-to homemade bone broth recipe which is super easy to make and oh-so-nutritious!
Slow Cooker Beef StewIt doesn’t get much easier than this! There are zero excuses to not make a healthy dinner with this recipe. All you’re required to do is put aside 10 minutes to chop up some ingredients, add them into a slow cooker, turn it on and walk away! Come home 8 hours later and you’ve got yourself a warming, nourishing, soulful dinner. My husband and I have been loving this recipe over these chilly winter nights, it’s a cook once, eat twice kind of meal we like to enjoy for two nights in a row.
Coconut Quinoa Curry (slow cooker)If you don't have much time to cook, work long hours, want to eat healthy but don't know where to start, then pull out your slow cooker, dust it off, chop up a few ingredients, and give this recipe a try! I really encourage simplicity and focusing on wholefoods when it comes to cooking, and this recipe is no different. I love a recipe when you can cook once and eat twice, and this is what my husband and I like to do with this recipe. Or, if you have a family to cook for then this is the perfect recipe for you! Winter is now upon us which calls for more warming, grounding dishes. This coconut quinoa curry is a recipe my husband and I have been enjoying regularly over these cooler months. It's a great recipe which you can prepare in 10 minutes or less, then turn on the slow cooker and walk away for a few hours. I like to cook this meal to enjoy two nights in a row for when our schedules are busy to save cooking time, you could also freeze the leftovers to enjoy another week.
Mexican Quinoa Bowl (Slow Cooker Meal)Family friendly, easy, nutritious and delicious! This slow cooker mexican quinoa bowl is the perfect meal to make any night of the week. It’s bursting with delicious healthy ingredients. All you have to do is prep all the ingredients, throw them in a slow cooker, then walk away. It’s that simple! If you’ve seen my other recipes you may realize that I’m all about simple, easy and quick meals, and this recipe is no different! This dish is great on its own in a bowl topped with fresh avocado or guacamole or you can easily enjoy it in corn taco shells or on top of corn chips. Get creative with what you fancy. I love it just as it is with freshly chopped avo. It makes quite a large portion so you’ll easily be able to feed 5-6 people or more if you’re serving it to your little ones.
