Advantages to using a Crock Pot

  3. Saves on a lot of dish washing several pots and pans to create a meal.
  4. A crock pot uses a lot less energy that the stove top or oven.
  5. It reduces our consumption of processed, packaged foods that are void of much nutrition and full of a variety of chemicals.

  1. This looks delicious and I’m always up for trying a new slow cooker recipe (lazy cook here). I’ll have to figure out a good substitution for the chicken though, for this vegetarian household.
