Living Clean: Slow-Cooker Goodness

Just last week I was lubing up the girls and putting them in bathing suits so we could play in our various blow up pools on the back deck. Today I turned the heat on. And I love it! I am a sucker for all things fall: foliage, pumpkin anything, apple picking, wearing jeans, boots and coats and especially the start of the holidays. This cold front we are having in New England is making me excited for all of those things to come in the upcoming months, and has prompted me to dust off the slow cooker and try out some new recipes.

I recently discovered thanks to a guest post over at, my go-to for Paleo recipes. I decided to try out her Kickin' BBQ Chicken recipe on Monday and loved it so much that I plugged my slow cooker back in and tried another one of her recipes! And damn! they did not disappoint.

And let me just say this...I will never ever buy another rotisserie chicken again. I cooked a whole chicken, as suggests, in the slow cooker and it was simply delicious. All you need to do is clean the bird, pat it dry, place in the slow cooker, cover with salt and pepper, put the lid on and cook it for 5 hours on low. Moist, tasty, tender bird. MMMMMM.

I have a few other Paleo/Clean slow cooker recipes that are really simple and fantastic so I figured I would share the links to all of them in this post! Click on the photo captions to go to the original recipe posts. All of the photos below are from the original posters websites.
