What not to love about slow cooker recipes?

They’re the easiest recipes to throw together. Just set it, forget it, and a few hours later–wahla!–your meal is ready!

That’s why we rounded up this collection of slow cooker recipes for every meal of the day. Ready?

First, if you’re in need of healthy meat for these recipes, keep in mind: not all meat is created equal.

I STRONGLY urge you to buy only organic, grass-fed red meat from sustainable, humane and local (when possible) farms.

Compared to conventional, factory-farmed meat, grass-fed farms are more humane and better for the animal, the farming practices are more sustainable and better for the environment, and the meat itself is higher in nutrients, healthy fats and all-around just better for YOU!

If you follow R+R, you know by now that I’m a huge ButcherBox fan. What’s not to love about getting healthy, sustainable cuts of meat delivered right to your door? I’m all about saving time, and with Butcher Box, you don’t have to sacrifice quality for convenience. They truly care about the humane treatment of animals, the sustainability of our planet, and improving livelihoods for farmers.
