Many nutritionists will tell people that crock pots and slow cookers are the best way for a person to eat their food. Slow cookers and crock pots will cook food at a steady temperature of around a hundred degrees for the entire time. This will allow food to not only preserve the natural taste of the food but it will also lock in the nutrients that are found in food., When food is fried, baked, broiled or even grilled at temperatures that go well over a hundred degrees, the nutrients will begin to cook out of the food at those high temperatures. Therefore, crock pot recipes will allow food to stay preserved with all of the nutrients to allow a person to eat healthy and more nutrient rich foods.

One of the first recipes I will discuss is this amazing beef stew. Not only is this beef stew super tasty it is also low in carbs, calories and fat. For this beef stew all a person will need is the following
- 2 pounds of stew meat
- 3 cups of bottled water
- 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 cup of chopped onions
- 1 cup of chopped celery
- 1 large carrot
- 1 10 ounce package of frozen peas or for those of you who would prefer green beans
- 16 ounc can of tomato sauce
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Red pepper flakes (i love heat, so if you do, go ahead and add it!)
All that a person will need to do turn the crock pot on high and begin with adding the water, onions, celery, chopped up carrot, peas and the tomato sauce. Before adding the meat it is always nice to brown the outside of it to add some extra flavor to the meat. Therefore take the stew meat and place them in a skillet with the extra virgin olive oil and set the range to about medium heat. Make sure that all the sides of the meat brown up nicely and then you will need to drain the excess oil and fat that is left in the pan. Once that has drained, take the meat and toss it in the crock pot and then take the spices and add as much as you would like tasting them as you go along.
This chicken paprika is a great recipe and a phenomenal crock pot sensation that is sure to keep you coming back for more.
- 4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts
- 4 medium zucchinis sliced up
- I medium onion sliced
- 1/2 a cup water
- 1/2 a cup chicken stock
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil
- 2 tablespoons paprika
- Red pepper flakes
Make sure to season the chicken breast with some salt, pepper, garlic and some red pepper flakes (for some added heat, if you would like). Then place the chicken at the bottom of the crock pot. Sprinkle on a tablespoon of paprika over the chicken and then cover it with a layer of zucchini and onions. Then add the three tablespoons of the extra virgin olive oil and then pour the rest of the paprika over the vegetables. Then pour the mixture of water and chicken stock into the crock pot and make sure to try to miss the paprika so it can soak into the vegetables and chicken. I would also suggest adding some extra garlic, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes for some flavor and then turn the crock pot on low for about about six to eight hours.
