If you’re looking for healthy, simple, and tasty meals that the whole family will love, you might want to consider investing in a slow cooker (if you haven’t already got one). It’s one of our favourite ways to cook a large meal without all the fuss, and what’s more, the health benefits of using a lower temperature are widely accepted. Here are our 9 favourite slow cooker recipes that we’re sure you and the family will absolutely love!
Why use a slow cooker?
Believe it or not, slow cookers have been around for over 40 years now, but they’ve recently boomed due to the simplicity of the cooking process and the health benefits associated with cooking food for longer periods at a lower temperature.
The nutrients within foods will naturally be destroyed during the cooking process, but it is apparent that cooking foods at a lower temperature ensure the food retains more of its nutritional goodness than frying, steaming or boiling would.
Furthermore, if you’ve got a day of work ahead or are planning on venturing out for the day, you can leave your slow cooker to work its magic on the food for most of the day whilst you are busy. You’ll come home to your meal ready to eat!
Last, but certainly not least, some of the meals you can produce with the help of a slow cooker are simply mouth-watering! To back up our claims about the wonders of the slow cooker, we decided to give you a few examples of some slow cooker recipes which we know you’ll all adore!
