Recently my family has started a clean eating journey and for that reason I’ve been blogging Clean Eating Crock pot Recipes on the blog. After a while I realized I had quite a few of them and thought I’d just organize them in one place so without further ado here are your 7 Clean Eating Crock Pot Recipes. Please feel free to pin, Stumble and Facebook share to help others realize that clean eating doesn’t have to be hard or expensive!
What is Clean Eating
Defined in a thousand different ways by many different people to me clean eating means eating food in it’s most natural state and eating foods with 5 ingredients or less. My budget won’t allow for all organic foods but we do try and eat leaner meats, lots of fruit and vegetables and eat nothing processed. If I can’t read an ingredient we don’t buy it which means making a lot from scratch.
The Clean Eating Crock Pot Recipes
1) Crock Pot Clean Eating Chicken Soup.
I’ve been blogging Clean Eating Crock Pot Recipes and wanted to try a Crock Pot Clean Eating Chicken Soup. We love chicken noodle soup around here but I ditched the noodles and we had it with Clean Eating Crock Pot Bread instead! This uses my Homemade Chicken Bouillon recipe.
2) Clean Eating Crock Pot Orange Chicken
On a Friday night I like something easy and I love Chinese food so last week I tried to clean up orange chicken in my crock pot and came up with Clean Eating Crock Pot Orange Chicken. I served it over Jasmine rice and voila: no trip out for takeout needed! This is the recipe for ya if you’re clean eating or gluten free.
3) Clean Eating Crock Pot Tacos
Every Tuesday is Taco Tuesday in our house and recently I made Clean Eating Crock Pot Chicken Tacos for us. I added way too many beans to chicken ratio in Hubs opinion but ya know what? We were both stuffed quicker as beans are so packed full of protein and the kids enjoyed them too. Although I had other fixings on the table I served mine with a couple of unusual ingredients: sauteed onions and sauteed spinach. Just something different!
4) Clean Eating Crock Pot Pork
Crock Pot Chicken and BBQ Sauce is one of my favorite meals ever but the bbq sauce is full of lots of processed stuff so I cooked Clean Eating Crock Pot Pork this week instead. It’s only 3 ingredients and it would go great with couscous.
5) Clean Eating Crock Pot Bread
I love clean eating recipes and my crock pot which spurred me to make Clean Eating Crock Pot Bread. This week I blogged Whole Wheat Bread recipe for the Breadmaker. It’s 6 ingredients and as long as you use a real wheat flour or grind your own, it’s clean eating baby! So you don’t have a breadmaker or it’s super hot where you live? Then ditch the oven and crock pot it!
6) Clean Eating Crock Pot Brownies.
When I saw Clean Eating Crock Pot Brownies, I knew I had to try them out. Now why in the world would one make brownies in the crock pot and not the oven or microwave? Well, to save space or cut down on heating When it’s the middle of summer I don’t want my oven on but I ain’t giving up my chocolate so this is convenient. Plus, although it takes a while to bake they’re not hard to make and it can be a space saver if your oven is full of dinner. Dessert in the crock pot? Sign me up!
7) Crock Pot Clean Chicken and Broccoli
I’m not usually the kind of friend who shows up at your house with a crockpot in her arms but last night my friend Lynda was blessed with me showing up with this Crock Pot Clean Chicken and Broccoli. Of course that made her a guinea pig but strangely she went along with it (hello, I made her dinner!) and while our Hubbies were both at work her and I tried out my newest Clean Crock Pot recipe and she was impressed.
