About These Spring Slow Cooker Recipes
As far as I’m concerned, every
season is crockpot season!
No matter the outside temperature, the part of less preparation and less stress is one of the biggest advantages of cooking crockpot (well, that and less cleaning).
They’re an especially good option if your weeknights feel very busy and you want a little more time to yourself.
Since you can set a timer and walk away, adopting a slow-cook dinner strategy frees you up to spend your time however you want (and still be able to come home with a healthy home-cooked meal).
Like my summer, winter, and fall crockpot collections, these simple spring clay pot recipes are very easy to put together.
They’re designed to help you get the most out of fresh spring produce, such as asparagus, peas, carrots, potatoes, and more, while they’re in season (and when you can get them at their most affordable price).
The best part is that they make plenty of leftovers, so this is a great collection of recipes to save for busy weeks or anytime you need to feed a crowd quickly and easily.

What makes these recipes go away and go?
A throwaway slow cooker recipe is one that does not require browning, sautéing, or cooking ingredients before adding them to the cooking pot. Fewer prep steps, less stress (and fewer dishes to deal with at the end of the day).
The truth is that there is no universally agreed upon definition
of what makes a recipe healthy.
As an expert on healthy habits, you should know: I’ve interviewed over 200 health and wellness experts on the question of what it really means to be healthy, and I still haven’t discovered a definition of healthy eating that all experts agree on.
However, I wrote the book about what it really means to be healthy, and when it comes to recipes, I take a comprehensive, real-food, research-based approach.
With this in mind, all of these recipes are made with whole food ingredients, with no added refined sugar, and do not include processed ingredients or oils.
They are also vegetables, including whole grains, as well as lots of colorful and health-filled vegetables.
Finally, as an expert in healthy habits, I know that a big part of eating healthy is making the process easier.
That’s why all of these recipes are not only full of good ingredients for you, but they’re also incredibly easy to prepare.
As always, if you are following a specific diet for health reasons, check with your doctor or registered dietitian for specific health advice and check out our nutritional disclaimer for more information.
