Since 2009, millions of people have transformed their lives with the Whole30. Now, co-creator Melissa Hartwig is making it even easier to achieve Whole30 success with delicious slow cooker recipes that turn ingredients into delicious, hearty meals with ease while you're out and about. This follow-up to the best-selling The Whole30 Cookbook is packed with 150 recipes designed to get you out of the kitchen fast, so you can enjoy all the benefits of your Whole30-inspired lifestyle. The Whole30 Slow Cooker features delicious, no-fuss dinners that cook while you work; roasts that transform into tacos, salads, and soups, for easy meals throughout the week; and satisfying one-pot meals that make prep and cleanup a breeze. These creative meals use whole-food ingredients found in any supermarket, and as an added bonus, feature recipes and directions for making your meals Instant Pot-friendly!
Hartwig (The Whole30, Whole30 Fast & Easy, etc.), cofounder of the Whole30 program, returns with a collection of 150 slow cooker recipes that comply with the program's strict monthlong regimen of eliminating dairy, grains, legumes, and sweets. Hartwig hits all the slow cooker classics with protein-heavy dishes, such as pulled pork, pot roast, chili, and stews, but there are plenty of flavor-packed meals with vegetables and fruits as well: chicken shawarma salad with tahini dressing, Cincinnati-style chili served over butternut squash noodles, and shrimp with Napa cabbage and peach harissa vinaigrette are just some of the lively inclusions followers can look forward to. Hartwig credits the fellow bloggers and Whole30 writers who've contributed many of these creative dishes, sharing their contact info as well as recommending other cookbooks and resources. Each of the book's recipes includes modifications for the Instant Pot, as well as an additional chapter of more than 30 dishes best suited for the device, such as smoky beef and bacon chili, and Chinese sesame chicken. Adherents of the program who have stocked ahead (many recipes call for specific spices as well as ingredients like ghee or coconut aminos) are sure to appreciate this time-saving and palate-expanding collection.
