33 Delicious Paleo Recipes To Make In A Slow Cooker

Just because you eat like a caveman doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take advantage of modern conveniences.

1. Crock Pot Chicken Pad Thai with Vegetable Noodles

Better than take-out. Recipe here.

2. Shredded Beef and Cabbage Bowls with Avocado Salsa

Instead of using store-bought mayo (which isn’t usually paleo) for the cabbage slaw, make your own (here’s how). It’s healthier, more delicious, and easy as long as you’re willing to whisk a little bit! Beef and cabbage bowl recipe here.

3. Chocolate Chicken Mole

This deeply flavored chicken stew is almost too good for a weeknight. Almost. Recipe here.

4. Salmon Head Soup

Next time you’re shopping for salmon fillets, buy the whole fish instead. You can have the fishmonger fillet it for you, but ask for the carcass and head in a separate bag, then use them to make this soup. Recipe here.

5. Paleo Slow Cooker N’Oatmeal

Instead of oats, this n’oatmeal is made with nuts, butternut squash, and apples. it’s more of a textured breakfast stew than a hot cereal, but it’s delicious and filling all the same. Recipe here.

6. Slow Cooker Kale and Ham Hocks

The recipe calls for bacon grease, olive oil, or vegetable oil. Steer clear of the vegetable oil, since it’s not paleo. And, you know bacon grease will taste best, anyway. Recipe here.

Recipe here.

8. Braised Lamb Shanks & Eggplant

Recipe here.

9. Crockpot Carnitas on Red Pepper “Nachos”

Snacktime. Recipe here.

Easy enough for a Monday night dinner alone, but fancy enough for a dinner party. Recipe here.
