THinking about eating more clean. My schedule is kind of crazy and am interested in some crockpot recipes so they will be ready by the time I get home.

I will most likely use brown rice or whole wheat pasta as part of my main dish.. but would like some recipes using fresh (or frozen if I have to) veggies & meats --with low sodium sauces or lots of spices.


Any or all recipes would be appreciated!! :)

Here is one from Skinnytaste.com. She has alot of good recipes. We really liked it. I had some left over and I drained the sauce from it and layered the filling over some corn tortillas with some green and red enchilada sauce and lowfat cheese. It was great!

Another great one is this Crock Pot Turkey White Bean Pumpkin Chili from Skinnytaste. You can't taste the pumpkin...it just makes the chili velvety smooth

This one is easy and I've served it to others several times and everyone really likes it

Lentil Soup (serves 8)
Throw all of this stuff in the crock pot in the morning. Turn it on low for 8+ hours (sometimes I do more than 8 hours and it’s always been fine)
3 Raw Carrots Chopped
3 Stalks of Celery - Chopped
1 Onion - Chopped
2 Cloves of Garlic - Diced
2 C lentils (rinsed) (I've used whatever the cheapest bulk lentils I could find at Sprouts)
64oz of Vegetable broth
1 can of diced tomatoes (I prefer the Rotel with Habanero so that it has some spice, I didn’t think the jalapeno ones had enough spice but I may be crazy) OPTIONAL
3 Russet potatoes (small or medium) – OPTIONAL (I often add these for bulk)

About 15 minutes before serving add:
1.5 Tbsp of Balsamic Vinegar
2 cups Kale (or other green like Spinach or Collard Greens)
Salt & pepper to taste (the recipe I had told me to add it to the crockpot in the beginning and gave me a measurement. I don't tend to add any at all, but if I feel as if it's needed, I just add a little per serving)

try googling Wendy's Chili Recipe... we make it without the meat and by using stewed tomatoes instead of sauce... it's delicious and super easy for a busy schedule... the only prep is dicing onion and celery...yes, the pinto and kidney beans are canned...that's what makes is a 5 minute prep meal....I think it's the combo of chili powder and cumin that makes it so tasty.

Eat Clean Slow Cooker Recipe
Spicy Lemon-Turmeric Chicken and Vegetables
Serves: 6

* 1 tablespoon ground cumin
* 1 tablespoon paprika
* 1 tablespoons turmeric
* 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
* 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt, plus more to taste
* 1 whole lemon
* One 3 1/2 pound free-range broiler/ fryer chicken skinned and trimmed of excess fat, rinsed and patted dry
* 1 large onion, chopped
* 5 cloves garlic, chopped
* 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
* 1 pound carrots, chopped
* 2 red bell peppers, chopped
* 1 can (14 ounces) fire roasted crushed tomatoes
* 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil


1. In a small bowl, mix together the cumin, paprika, turmeric, cayenne pepper and salt. Add the juice from one whole lemon (reserving the lemon rind) and mix well.

2. Using your hands, apply the spice mixture generously all over the inside and outside of the bird. Stuff the cavity of the chicken with half of the onions, half of the garlic and half of the cilantro.

3. Place the remaining onions, garlic and cilantro in the bottom of a 5 or 6-quart slow cooker. Add the carrots, bell pepper and crushed tomatoes. Stir in the extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt to taste. Place the chicken on top of the vegetables. Cover and cook on low for about 7 hours or on high for approximately 4 hours, or until the meat pulls easily away from the bones.

Serve warm.smile

Super Easy Crock Pot Meat

Ingredients:
4-6 Chicken Breasts (or pork tenderloin)
bag of baby carrots
20-30 small red or yellow potatoes
1 onion chopped (I like sweet or Vidalias)
1 green pepper chopped
1 package french onion soup mix

Directions:
1. Toss all ingredients into the crockpot and add enough water to cover meat (keep water level at least 1/4 inch from top to prevent overflow.)
2. Set crockpot on low.
3. Cook 6-8 hours on low or until meat is fully cooked.
4. Serve over brown rice.


You can also use a modified version of this to make pulled pork. Marinate the pork tenderloin overnight (or buy premarinated pork tenderloin.) Only add the pork tenderloin and the onion soup mix, plus two cups of water to the crockpot. Set the crockpot to low and cook 10-12 hours, flip meat halfway through (or as soon as you get home form work.) Check to make sure the pork is falling apart with a fork; if it isn't you need to let it cook a little longer. Drain water off the meat, pull the pork apart using forks and serve with your favorite BBQ sauce.

Low Carb Crockpot Chicken Dijon

4 chicken breasts
3 Tbs olive oil (or any other)
2 cloves garlic minced
3 Tbs white wine
2 Tbs soy sauce
2 Tbs Dijon mustard

Heat oil in a skillet. Add minced garlic and cook 3 minutes, stirring often. Add chicken breasts and brown. In a separate bowl, combine wine, soy sauce and mustard and mix well. Pour generously over chicken. Put all in crockpot and cook for 6 hours on high.

When I made this it was a little dry, so I did the first half on high & then added some broth & continued to cook on low.
