3 Tips for Finding Slow Cooker Recipes for Large Families

Several people dining on Table

When I started Weight Watchers, I had to take control of my own food to help me lose weight. That’s what started me on the road to a love for cooking. Recently I got an Instant Pot as a gift, and I love the simplicity of using it. I mainly use it as a pressure cooker, but the slow cooker capability has also come in handy.

Obviously, with my new ‘toy’, I have been looking for ways to find recipes. A friend of mine recently gave me a link to a list of the slow cooker recipes Apps, which is given below:

Best 10 Apps for Slow Cooker Recipes

Below are some of the tips that I hope you’ll find useful when choosing a slow cooker app for you.

1. Become Healthy Quickly with Nutritious Slow Cooker Recipes throughout the Year

If you want to lose weight and eat healthier but you have trouble finding recipes that you’ll like, a crockpot app that has healthy recipes in it is a good idea. Slow cooking is much easier to make the recipes and it also has some wonderful healthy recipes that use ingredients that are full of nutrition and ideal for any diet you’re following.

If your diet is keto-based or low carb, there are apps that can help you find protein-packed recipes using beef, chicken, pork and more. If you’re looking for vegan or vegetarian recipes, you can find many recipes for your slow cooker for them too. A lot of the apps also work with programs for weight loss, such as Slimming World and Weight Watchers. They help you with accurately calculating your points or just getting the serving sizes and nutritional facts for the dishes. This way there’s no guesswork involved.

2. Use Recipe Sources You Trust to Make Sure You Have Great Meals

The last thing you want to do is to make a meal that no one enjoys. That’s why you want to find recipe apps for your slow cooker from the most trustworthy and best food organizations. Some of the popular options are those like Food Network or Bon Appetite. Some of the other resources come from chefs that are well known as Gordon Ramsay, Rachel Ray, and Jamie Oliver.

3. Cook Delicious Stews & Soups like a Trained Chef

Crockpots are a great choice when you want to make chili, stews, and soups. If you want to find recipes to help keep you warm during frigid winter days, you’re going to be glad to know there are a lot of apps for crockpots that are just made for these types of recipes. The soup can be the main course or side dish, and the recipes that are in the app will let you know the amount to make. Not only that, if you’re looking to try different recipes rather than making the ones that you normally make, an app will help you with the resources needed for creating something brand new.

The great thing about soups and stews is that many times they can be made ahead and frozen to be eaten later. That means you can create huge batches of your family’s favorites and freeze them in containers. Then, when you don’t feel like cooking or you want something tasty to take to work with you, you can take the container out of the freezer the night before, or simply heat it up in the microwave frozen. This makes having a quick meal or lunch easier than ever.

Conclusion

Whether you’re trying to save time or you’re looking for easy and delicious recipes you can cook for your family, a slow cooker app is one of the best places to start. You’ll always find something to love.
