What's Hap-pinning Wednesday: Crock Pot Edtion

It's no secret, I have been all about finding new crock pot recipes recently.  I think the struggle with some crock pot recipes is making them healthy - a lot seem heavy.  Below are a few that I cannot wait to try.

Crock Pot Cashew Chicken (recommended by Sarah!)

Healthy Crock Pot Cashew Chicken:


Skinny Slow Cooker Kale and Turkey Meatball Soup -- a healthy version of Italian Wedding Soup! {clean eating}:

Lime Shredded Pork & Balsamic Beef with Carrots (I made freezer bags of both of these this weekend!  Can't wait to give them a try!)

Six Healthy Freezer Crockpot Meals in 50 Minutes:


Slow Cooker Sweet Potato, Chicken and Quinoa Soup via Chelsea's Messy Apron #protein #comfort #crockpot:

What are your favorite crock pot meals?

Linking up with Jenn and Jessi.

  8. I can't wait to start crockpotting again on Sundays! My husband and I have two crockpots between us and girl, you better believe both of them will be going in the kitchen in the fall while we're watching football :)

  9. oh that cashew chicken looks so good! my thing with the crockpot is the lack of variety.. to me anyway. most of the things we make are very similar, and i get bored of it! but i definitely use it like once or twice a week every week!

  14. YUM! These all look amazing! I especially want to try the quinoa soup! I have an undying love for my crockpot especially during the work week, but you're right a lot of crockpot recipes are heavy. Loving these lighter options <3

  15. All of these sound really good... I really want to use my slow cooker more this winter, so I'm on the hunt for some new recipes. I really need to reorganize my Pinterest boards like you did first, though, so I can actually find stuff that I've pinned!

  17. Crockpots are so awesome because everything is so easy! My favorite cooking blogger is Skinnytaste, and she actually has a new cookbook coming out in October that's all crockpot recipes! You should check out her site if you haven't already!

  18. Yum!! You're right - so many crock pot recipes don't seem very healthy. Love the idea of that sweet potato one and I've also pinned several crock pot recipes that call for spinach. Keep us posted if you try any of these :)

  22. We are big, big crockpot meal lovers over here! Our local Hyvee grocery store offers freezer meal classes where we make 10 meals (mostly crockpot meals) to take home and I LOVE IT. It's such a game changer for our dinners around here.
