With a growing family, I am appreciating the ease and simplicity of slow cooked keto meals. Doing minimal food prep in the morning, gathering the ingredients in a pot and leaving it on to simmer down into a delicious culinary creation is the beautiful art of slow cooked food.
I want to incorporate this practice into my weekly food prep more often. The children help out in the morning and have fun peeking into the pot to take note of the changes as the day goes on. I think they like looking forward to the meal at the end of the day – finally, it’s ready!
Benefits of slow cooked keto meals:
- simplify meal prep
- make large recipes (that means leftovers!)
- minimize time spent in the kitchen
- keep the house cool on hot days (no need to use the oven or stove)
Making wholesome, from scratch meals everyday isn’t always easy. Using a crock pot or slow-cooker can be a huge help in the kitchen. If you don’t have a slow cooker, you can adapt these recipes by using a large pot on the stove over a low flame. The cooking time may be a bit shorter, my recipes are usually done an hour or two earlier on the stove than if I use a crock pot.
