Kalua pig is one of Hawaiis best-known dishes and easily replicated at home. Traditionally, an entire pig is placed in an underground pit (imu in Hawaiian) that is lined with hot rocks and wrapped in banana leaves, then covered with a layer of soil and roasted overnight. Since we dont have room in our back yard for an imu, nor access to a suckling pig and banana leaves, nor the desire to go through such a hassle, we just use a crock pot or french oven.

For years I was obsessed with Chipotle salads. And when I say obsessed, I really mean it. For a year or two, I dont think there was a week where I didnt grab one for dinner. It was quick, relatively inexpensive and in comparison to some other fast food places, Chipotle has much better (but still not great) quality standards. However, Ive struggled with digestive issues for as long as I can remember and have a pretty sensitive stomach

Ingredients: oxtail, water, tomatoes, garlic, paprika, salt.
The first time I made oxtail stew, it turned out not that great. It was a similar recipe to the one below, but I put all the ingredients into the slow cooker.

Ingredients: beef stew meat, salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, thyme, onion powder, mushrooms, onion, coconut cream, red wine vinegar.
Beef Stroganoff has been around for 150 years or so. It has stood the test of time for sure, sometimes disappearing for a while but always coming back into vogue. While I prefer other cooking methods for dishes that need to keep their distinct flavors and brightness, Im a big fan of the slow cooker for cozy dishes like Stroganoff. You can always add some brightness with parsley, lemon zest, or zoodles as your base.
That Paleo Couple
Ingredients: beef chuck, white onion, curry powder, garlic, ginger, whole fat coconut milk, salt, chili sauce.
This is a really hearty curry that has a nice heat to pair with the winter weather, although Id eat this year round.

I wasnt exactly sure what on earth I was going to make with these random cow parts, so I had a flip through some of my favorite recipe books to get ideas. Rick Steins Far Eastern Odyssey piqued my interest as I already had some bits and pieces from the Thai supermarket lurking in the fridge. I decided I would make my own take on his Beef Rendang recipe (a Malaysian curry).
Ingredients: oxtail, sea salt, black pepper, onions, leeks, celery, carrots, thyme, rosemary, bay leaves, garlic, tomato paste, beef broth.
I do love oxtail. When cooked correctly it really is incredible. Absolutely jam-packed with flavor and it gets all gooey and caramelized like making it hard to stop at just one. The key is to cook it slow and cook with simple flavor packed ingredients.

Ingredients: ground beef, ground pork, eggs, almond flour, onion, garlic powder, oregano, smoked paprika, basil, salt, pepper, marinara sauce, squash.
A classic home-cooked favorite of most people I think is spaghetti and meatballs. The marinara sauce is the easiest thing to convert into a paleo rendition, but the other two are well-known foods that contain flours and other sorts of non-paleo fare. The most common way around the spaghetti (and most kinds of pasta) is using the spaghetti squash. The meatballs can be a little tricky sometimes but when done right, youd never know the difference.
Ingredients: shin beef, beef dripping, carrots, onion, celery sticks, beef stock, cumin, salt, pepper, celeriac, mixed winter herbs (thyme/ bay leaf/ parsley).

Homemade broths are so much different than the store-bought ones. The most profound difference you will notice is that the store-bought broth is easy to pour out of those neat little containers. Homemade broths take on an interesting metamorphous and are jelly-like, no pouring these broths!

Ingredients: stew meat, onion, carrots, butternut squash, tomatoes, mushrooms, chicken stock, basil, oregano, cumin, apple cider vinegar, salt, pepper.

Rubies and Radishes
Ingredients: chicken thighs, coconut milk or homemade coconut milk, green curry paste.
Today I am going to share with you a couple of recipes that we rely on when life gets hectic. When I have the time, I love taking the extra few minutes to do things like brown the meat and saute the vegetables before adding them to the slow cooker. Having some ideas for really easy slow-cooker meals can make all the difference in keeping you on track with your healthy Paleo lifestyle.
Nom Nom Paleo
Ingredients: chicken drumsticks, lemongrass, garlic, ginger, coconut milk, Red Boat fish sauce, coconut aminos, five-spice powder, onion, scallions, Kosher salt, black pepper.
If you have leftover lemongrass and coconut milk in the pantry, you can make a slow cooker chicken drumstick dish with these ingredients. Add some five-spice powder and throw the ingredients in the slow cooker instead of the oven.
Ingredients: boneless chicken breasts or thighs, onion, carrots, green beans, broccoli, tomatoes, and red bell pepper, full-fat coconut milk, tomatoes, cumin, coriander, ginger, garlic powder, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, water, salt.
Crockpots do everything for youexcept clean up. Put it in and walk awayWhat resulted was a warm, filling, and savory curry thats not at all spicy hot. Best part, its free from the weird ingredients found in most premixed curry pastes. and you dont have to worry about that lonesome jar of rarely used curry powder getting stale because youve made it fresh.
When shopping for green beans, take a tip from Registered Dietitian Natalie Butler, RD. Fresh green beans are the healthiest option. Look for beans that are bright green and free of black spots and blemishes. The beans should not be flimsy. For the most nutritional benefits, eat fresh green beans as soon as possible after harvesting or purchasing.

I found a really great deal on some Split Chicken Breasts the other day so I bought them not really know how I was going to use them.

Then I checked out the fridge to see what we had available and voila this recipe was born.
Ingredients: chicken carcasses from roasted chicken, raw backs, necks and wings, apple cider vinegar, water, kosher salt.
Ill be the first to admit that I used to buy chicken stock (or broth or whatever you want to call it) almost as often as I made it. Ive mentioned some of my favorite brands before and while I do still keep a carton or two in the pantry for emergencies, it is now rare that I use a store-bought stock of any kind in most of my cooking.

Life Made Full

I love having homemade chicken stock in my freezer. Any time someone in our family starts getting the sniffles or feels under the weather, I whip out a jar of it and watch as they slowly savor each sip.

Ill never go back to using the stovetop for stock again!

This is a slow cooker recipe, and anyone who has known me long enough to have one conversation on the topic of convenience cooking knows that I have a deep love affair with my crock-pot. Especially when I used to teach daycare full time.

When this recipe for Chocolate Chicken Mole was bubbling away in the slow cooker, my stomach would not stop constantly screaming to eat. I felt like it had turned into a toddler having a temper tantrum over some candy. I could not wait to inhale this deliciousness that my friend Arsy, from Rubies and Radishes, had created for her cookbook The Paleo Foodie Cookbook. It was so stinking good, I ate seconds.

Im in love with my slow cooker and Ive lately been in love with curry. This recipe for Slow Cooker Coconut Curried Chicken is one of my favorites!
Delicious By Dre
Ingredients: cream cheese, Greek yogurt, ranch dips seasoning, franks red hot, chicken, mozzarella cheese.
Last year, my husband and I attended a super bowl Sunday party and I was introduced to buffalo chicken dip for the first time, ever. (i know, Im a little behind.) I was so delighted at this new high protein dip that I asked for the recipe. It was appalling. I couldnt believe I had even eaten it! So this year, Im taking control by hosting my own super bowl party and making my own healthy version of this delicious buffalo chicken dip. Its amazing. And totally not healthy tasting!
Bravo For Paleo

Crockpots are the BEST! It takes only 5 minutes to assemble this recipe. Then I can leave it cooking while I run errands, go to class, or workout, and its ready by dinner time. Its so simple, just chicken breasts and salsa verde.

Ingredients: chicken bones, carrots, onions, celery, sea salt, vinegar, water.
Bone broth is one of the healthiest foods we can consume. If made properly, it will be rich in minerals like calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium. Bone broth is also a great source of gelatin.

Ingredients: coconut milk, chicken stock, chicken thighs, red curry paste, coconut aminos, fish sauce, garlic cloves, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, frozen mixed veggies.
So Im a huge fan of Thai curries and Im a little picky when it comes to it. Ive tried a lot of recipes and FINALLY put together one I could get excited about!
Other Keto Crockpot Recipes

Fit Slow Cooker Queen

Spaghetti squash and shrimp cook together in the slow cooker for this healthy & delicious low-carb alternative to shrimp scampi!
Life as a Dreger
Ingredients: red onions, bison roast, beef stock, sherry, thyme, bay leaf, olive oil, salt, pepper.
One of our favorite pre-Primal/Paleo soups was a good homemade French Onion soup served with a couple of slices of toasted baguette topped with broiled Provolone cheese. By removing the bread and cheese and adding in some great protein, in this case, bison, we have transformed a soup that was previously an excuse to eat cheese toast into a hearty Paleo meal.
Life as a Dreger
Ingredients: rabbit, Andouille sausage or other spicy smoked sausages, onion, carrots, mushrooms, chicken stock, red pepper flakes, cayenne, black pepper, paprika, coconut oil or ghee.
This is a very easy slow cooker recipe that produces a very tender and succulent rabbit. The flavor of the andouille sausage is a great feature in this otherwise very basic stew recipe.
The Domestic Man
Ingredients: lambs feet, onion, tomatoes, coriander, black peppercorns, cayenne pepper, turmeric, ginger, garlic, bay leaf, water, salt, cilantro.
Attukal Paya (sometimes spelled as Aattukaal Paya or just Paya) is a hearty soup made with lamb, sheep, or goat feet served in South India. What fascinates me about this dish is that its often served for breakfast initially this sounded strange to me, but the more I thought about it, the more it made sense; why not start your day out with some nutritious bone broth soup?
Ingredients: spicy Italian sausage, red bell pepper, eggplant, zucchini, yellow onion, garlic, pasta sauce, kosher salt, fresh basil.
This Slow Cooker Sausage and Vegetable Ratatouille are ridiculously easy, loaded with vegetables, dairy free, paleo and can be served alongside a simple side salad, over cauliflower rice, regular rice or even some zucchini noodles!
Ingredients: garlic, yellow onions, green bell peppers, kosher salt, Italian seasoning, dried oregano, red pepper flakes, tomatoes, cold water, bay leaf, Italian sausage links (mild or spicy), Italian parsley.
Traditionally, this is a dish I make on the stove top, slowly cooking down the onions and peppers and then the sausage. I would make a homemade red sauce in another pot and serve everything together with the sauce spooned over-top.

This paleo Shrimp Fra Diavolo recipe is from page 208 of The Everything Weeknight Paleo Cookbook, edited by Michelle Fagone (Cavegirl Cuisine). Serve this spicy sauce over hot Paleo pasta, that is, spaghetti squash.
The Washington Post
Ingredients: olive oil, garlic, paprika, salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, raw shrimp, flat-leaf parsley.
The gentle heat of the slow cooker is terrific for producing shrimp that are not overcooked. The poaching oil gets a 30-minute head start to develop flavor and soften the raw garlic. For easy, hands-on eating, leave the tails on the shrimp.
This is so good
Ingredients: water, apple cider vinegar, onion, carrots, celery, garlic, peppercorns, bay leaves.
I can think of nothing more comforting, more nutritious, or more versatile then homemade stock. Learning to make your own stock is essential (in my opinion) to preparing truly healthful meals. The benefits of homemade stock are so numerous! Here are just a few reasons to want to make and consume some ASAP!

Ingredients: tomatoes, water, full-fat coconut milk, salt, curry powder, garlic, onion.
This soup is the perfect blend of late summer/early fall: loaded with ripe, garden tomatoes, but warming, easy, and full of flavor. This is a really lazy soup because during the semester the weekends are the only time I can really cook with leisure.
Forest and Fauna
Ingredients: celery, yellow onion, coconut milk, water, dill, sea salt.
This cream of celery soup is a tribute to the vegan cream of potato soup that used to be a staple in my diet when I was in my 20s and living on a teeny tiny budget. But this soup is full paleo, starch-free, and alkalizing too! Its also super affordable to make. And it is super easy, especially if you got an Instant Pot for Christmas!!
Ingredients: whole tomatoes, garlic, basil leaves, dried thyme, onion powder, red pepper flakes, Kal Stevia, heavy cream, parmesan cheese.
Who says you cant have soup in the summer (or when it is May and 90 something degrees outside!) I just love tomatoes and fresh basil I love making Tomato Bail Soup. I usually serve it warm but for tonight, I think I will serve it chilled.
