Crockpot Season is Hereeeeee!

Finally, fall is here! Now that the temperature is dropping, we can return to enjoying warm soups, stews and roasts. For those of you with slow cookers, bring them out if they’ve been feeling neglected the last couple months. If you don’t own one, buy one. They will make preparing meals so easy, a caveman can do it.

Reasons I love the Slow Cooker

  1. I don’t particularly enjoy cooking.
  2. The clean up is really easy.
  3. It makes preparing meals very simple and time efficient even when you’re extremely busy.
  4. You don’t even need to follow a recipe of any sort. Throw protein, vegetables, broth and seasoning, and there’s a meal.
  5. It yields enough food for several meals so you won’t need to cook the next night.
  6. You can wake up or come home to a fully cooked meal. All you have to do is enjoy.

Here are a few of my personal favorite recipes that I frequently use (click title of recipe for link):

Breakfast oatmeal - Add protein powder in the morning before eating.

Tortilla Soup - To make this even easier to prepare, I use a rotisserie chicken.

Beef Stew - What's not to love about beef stew?

Shredded Chicken - I usually eat with tortillas as shredded chicken tacos.

Nom Nom Paleo Chicken & Gravy - Always a delicious meal from Nom Nom Paleo

Spaghetti Squash - Serve with meat sauce. I use jars of TJ's Tomato & Basil marinara sauce combined with cooked ground beef and onion.

In my searching, I also came across this page on BodyBuilding.com and will be trying a few of these recipes so that I can hopefully grow some "massive muscle" :) [http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/5-crock-pot-recipes-for-massive-muscle.html]
