As a busy mom, I rely on my crock-pot to get me through at least one or two dinners each week. When my kids were toddlers and I was cooking two different meals, it was easier to let the crock-pot do the heavy lifting of cooking the main meals. This gave me a little extra time to make the toddler favorites or dress up a side dish we could all eat. Freezer to crock-pot meals became my jam. I love prepping 5 meals at once and tossing into the freezer. I pull one out each night to dump in the crock pot the next day.
I love that there is less clean up and less thinking about what to make each night.
Finding gluten free meals to enjoy can be a little stressful and time consuming.
Here are five gluten free meals I found to try this week:
Slow cooker gluten free cocktail meatballs my kids go crazy for these along with maple roasted carrots.
Low carb crock-pot chili
Creamy salsa chicken
Vegetarian portobello crock-pot roast
Slow cookier coconut quinoa curry
That’s five nights of a crock-pot meals done! Which one will you try first?
