When I first got into slow cooking, I did it because I wanted healthy, easy meals to eat that required very little preparation. If I’m honest, I was after a way to make cooking as simple as possible because I often found myself too busy to find the time to make a healthy dinner. Some nights, after a busy day at work, I ended up grabbing takeouts for dinner.
At first, this was only an occasional occurrence, but then I realized it was happening two or three times a week. Needless to say, this was not good for my bank account or my wallet!
I decided that enough was enough and committed to using my slow cooker more to make healthy, nutritious meals to eat for dinner.
Because I was eating fewer takeouts, I soon noticed I was losing weight and that gave me the idea to search for weight loss slow cooker recipes.
