Crushing on My Crockpot

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know I’m a big fan of the crockpot (aka slow cooker). There’s nothing quite so satisfying as throwing a few things in a pot, leaving the house, and coming home from work to delicious aromas and dinner ready! It’s the closest I’ll come to having a person chef.

This blog is all about reversing autoimmune disease through diet and lifestyle, and that means home cooking, baby! And when it’s every single meal, every single day, that can take a whole lot of time. I’m all for making things easier, and that’s what slow cookers do. So, today, I have a roundup of delicious recipes, to do some of that cooking for you.

Cooker Options

Luckily slow cookers are easy to find. If you have a Wal-Mart, a K-Mart or a Target in your town, you can buy one today. You can also buy one online. Amazon has a whole selection. Here’s the one I have.

Another option is to use an Instant Pot. Have you heard of these? They are taking the paleo community by storm. They’re an all-in-one pressure cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, and steamer. I’m actually trading in my crockpot for one of these, simply because I love the idea of making bone broth in just 2-1/2 hours, and I’m all about maximizing cabinet space. If this pot can do both slow and fast cooking, I’m in! Tip: If you’re using the Instant Pot for these recipes, slow cook “normal” is the same as slow cook “low” on a crockpot/slow cooker.

Whatever you choose, Happy Cooking, everyone!

  2. Thanks so much for this! One thing I really need to do is stop spending so much time cooking, really. If I make 2 crockpot meals a week…I think that will free up a lot of time (I’m alone so just need to learn to eat left overs). Your blog is the best resource available to us and I am so thankful for you.

  3. We recently found out our 10 year old son has auto immunity and he has been hurting. I refuse to put him on medications and was so, so thankful to find this site. God bless you for sharing. The thought of a complete lifestyle change for a family of 6 was so overwhelming. I so appreciate your help.

    • I’m so sorry to hear about your son, Tifanni. You sound like a wonderful mother. I’m glad you found this site, too! If you want some help making the lifestyle change, there’s an online group coaching class starting on 1/5, taught by my friend Angie. She’s wonderful and provides so much support for the process. Instead of going cold-turkey, she guides you through a six-week transition from your current diet to t he AIP. It’s called SAD to AIP in SIX. Here’s a link to more information: http://bit.ly/1rnigCj

  4. So thankful to have found this website. My husband has all sorts of auto immune health issues. I don’t know for a fact yet but my 7 year old seem to show some of my husbands health concern. I’m hoping she doesn’t but I will try and put her in the same diet anyway in hopes of not ever having the same degree of difficulty as her dad. Thank you so much for your site. It gives me hope.

  5. I’m considering getting an Instapot for cooking meat. I wouldn’t be without my crockpot for broth but since the FDA regulations raising the temperature settings, I’m finding that meat gets overdone too quickly. Have you noticed this change in your cooking times?

    • Hmmm. I haven’t but I do tend to prefer using the crockpot for cuts of meat that do well with long cooking times, like roasts and stews (things you can’t overcook). For boneless chicken, I always shorten the cooking time to 3-4 hours on low. As for the Instant Pot, it makes great broth in just 2 hours so I love it for that function alone. I also gave away my separate slow cooker and now use the slow cooker function on the Instant Pot instead (saving room on my kitchen counter).

  6. Hi, Eileen,
    My husband and I raise meat rabbits. Do you have any thoughts on recipes or is making bone broth is just as good as chicken for aip? We find it a lot cheaper to raise. Thank you Marcia
