This time of year reminds me that some of my favorite things in life are cooking and eating healthy, I could also add in there being lazy!
Sadly, they’re often mutually exclusive because, well, takeout. Let’s be honest, takeout is simply convenient and that’s a big part of its appeal.
But then I remember it is possible to make my Crockpot do all of the cooking for me. I forget how easy it is to take the over salted, processed ingredients out and bingo—nutritious food with no effort. Now if you are feeling extra lazy one day you can still make a homemade clean slow cooked meal! How cool is that?!
Here is my 10 favorite, totally clean slow cooker meals.
Start Up Your Slow Cooker!
Slow Cooker Coconut Lime Chicken
Found from Slow Cooker Gourmet
Coconut lime makes a perfect summer cocktail but surprisingly makes a wonderful chicken dinner. It’s sweet, tart and a little spicy. Have it with some brown rice and a leafy vegetable for a complete and clean eating meal!
Found From Cats to Cooking
Tacos are always a good meal for clean eating and when you can just set up the crockpot with everything you need it just couldn’t be easier. Make these carnitas for taco Tuesday or have it over a homemade burrito bowl for lunch. There’s a lot that you can do with a little amount of effort!
Quinoa Black Bean Crockpot Stuffed Peppers
Found from Pinch of Yum
These “meaty” vegetarian stuffed peppers are perfect for a healthy meal. Eating vegetarian sometimes is a bonus since generally vegetables are cheaper so even your wallet will be happy too!
Found from Skinny Ms.
This chicken recipe is a perfect set it and forget it recipe. Set it on low and get a full day’s errands or work done while your delicious chicken is cooking. It’s easy to make the sauce ahead of time and freeze so you can really make this anytime and know that you are having a healthy meal!
Skinny Slow Cooker Kale ad Turkey Meatball Soup
Found from Foodie Crush
This is a great warm hearty soup for a cold day but it also light enough that you don’t feel like a potato after. I even enjoy these meatballs with marinara sauce and spaghetti squash!
Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala
Found from My Natural Family
Sometimes you just need a small change to your dinner routine. Chicken Tikka Masala is a rich and hearty in taste but is really easy to make. You will quickly add it to your clean eating weekly meals.
Found from Jeanette’s Healthy Living
Bolognese is a classic pasta sauce and I am so happy that I can make this sauce in a slow cooker! Again set it and forget it; for an extra “clean” option use zucchini noodles instead of regular pasta.
Crockpot Honey Pork and Apples
Found from Stockpiling Moms
This crockpot is not only gluten free and paleo friendly it is just so darn tasty. It’s so simple. Turn the leftovers into a nice salad or pork tacos (you can never go wrong with tacos!)
Slow Cooker Kale and White Bean Soup
Found from Dishing Delish
Having a good soup recipe is always a great idea when you are eating clean. This soup is full of flavor and something that you can set on low while you’re busy doing other things. It really saves you time and fills you up!
Crockpot Paleo Chili
Found from The Modern Proper
Chili has always been a staple in my home growing up so I think it is perfect for a crockpot recipe. This recipe being paleo is just a bonus! This healthy chili will soon be a favorite in your home!
Even if you are feeling extra lazy one day just know that you can still make delicious clean eating meals in your slow cooker!
