Thirty Whole 30 Slow Cooker Recipes

Thirty of the best Whole 30 recipes for your slow cooker... including breakfast meatloaf!

(Make the Whole30 the easiest ever with personalized, customizable meal plans!)

I love my slow cooker. I love the Whole30. So put the two things together and I’m pretty much in food heaven: simple, nutritious ingredients combined with an easy cooking method has to be the trifecta of cooking awesomeness.

If you came here for the slow cooker recipes, you might be wondering what a Whole30 is. At it’s simplest, a Whole30 is 30 days where you commit to eating only real, unprocessed food and is based on the New York Times’ Bestselling book It Starts With Food. But it’s not just avoiding the junk and losing some weight (in fact a key and often overlooked part of a Whole30 is NOT weighing yourself!). It’s about taking all of the things in your diet that may be affecting your health negatively OUT so that you can begin to heal your gut from the inside out. And to do that, you must avoid all grains, added sugars, soy, dairy, beans, legumes or treats.

Keep scrolling down and you’ll see that I’ve put together a list of THIRTY dishes you can prep EASILY in your slow cooker (mine is programmable and I love it!) that are also Whole30 compliant. See? Eating clean doesn’t have to be terrible or tasteless, I promise!

Need some help getting started with Whole30?

Planning and preparation are crucial for hitting the Whole30 with success, but if the idea of meal planning and grocery list making and stressing over what meals to make when is keeping you from starting or hitting your goals… there’s an easy solution.

My favorite part? The meal plans are designed not just for the 30 day elimination phase, but with a 10 day reintroduction period, too. So it takes care of you before and after your Whole30. No math required.

  1. Hi – thanks so much for putting together this post. I’m preparing myself now to do the Whole 30 a couple of months after my new baby arrives in June/July. Planning is the key to success and slow cooker meals will make life so much easier.

    Can I ask you how you put the gallery together? I’m looking for a tool to automate recipe galleries for a client’s website (pulling in new content based on category) but everything I can find or think of is manual. inc

    1. Ooh, that is a great link, thank you so much!

      I have a few other Whole30 posts if you click up on Whole30 resources in the menu bar up at the top. The gallery is actually the default WP gallery, but I used a plugin called WP Gallery Custom Links to make the images clickable links. Hope that helps! 🙂

  2. Yay! It worked! Thanks for all the great ideas! We will be doing our 2nd Whole30 soon! So happy to have some crock-pot ideas! 😀
