The last couple of years I’ve started off each new year with a Whole30 challenge. If you’re curious, you can see my 2014 results here, and 2015’s too. For a bunch of different reasons like a lack of time (I’ve been picking up a lot of shifts this month), sheer exhaustion after the holidays, and kids who are really picky eaters, I didn’t get it together for a new challenge this time.
Every time I’ve done a Whole30 though, my slow cooker has been my best friend. When you’re making every meal from scratch, one pot set and forget meals are definitely the way to go! Even though I’m not participating this year, I know lots of you are kicking off 2016 with your own Whole30 challenge or clean eating resolution. So here I am, cheering from the sidelines, with thirty Whole30 slow cooker recipes to carry you through your thirty days.
All these recipes are Whole30 compliant which means gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free. No grains, no artificial sweeteners, no legumes, no alcohol, no processed foods period. But of course you’re not limited to making these during your Whole30 only. These slow cooker meals are healthy and delicious anytime!
Here’s to your health!
