Thirty Whole 30 Slow Cooker Recipes

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.

And if you read that and stared at the page in horror, don’t worry. 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!

  1. POST NOT SHOWING UP? Ad-Block Pro blocks the display of images in this post because of a WordPress plugin. Disable ABP for the page, then refresh and you will be able to see all the goodies. Once my book is done, I’ll be re-writing this post, but in the meantime, that’s the quick fix 🙂

    1. It’s a slow loading page because of all the thumbnail images of the recipes – give it a refresh and a little time to load 🙂

    1. We have edited the post code and cleared our browser caches and now it shows up – we’ve tested it on 3 different browsers, Mac & Windows, so we’re hoping it’s fixed now. Sorry for the inconvenience!

  2. Nothing for me either after several minutes and a refresh– just a suggestion but rethinking the thumbnails may mean more people will be interested.

    1. It doesn’t appear to be the thumbnails that are the issue, since it is the whole post that won’t load. We have edited the post code and cleared our browser caches and now it shows up – we’ve tested it on 3 different browsers, Mac & Windows, so we’re hoping it’s fixed now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    1. We’re still troubleshooting. Right now it seems to be loading ok after editing the post code. We had to clear the browser cache before the whole post would show up again, though. Sorry for the delay 🙁

  3. 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! 🙂

    1. Have you tried clearing your browser cache? We have tested this in Chrome, Firefox, Safari & Opera and it’s working fine for us, so I’m not sure what else to suggest :/

  4. I am not seeing anything on this page except comments. I really wanedt to make the carnitas with jicama tacos!!

      1. You edited my comment before posting it. I think that’s really weird. I would not have known about that taco recipe since the page wouldn’t load.

    1. If you have an ad blocker, try allowing it for the page. That is what appears to be causing the problem for most people and preventing the plug-in from loading the recipe images :/

    1. It seems like the plugin I used to lay out the images and links doesn’t get displayed when people are running ad blockers, so if you are running one, try enabling ads for the page and reloading the page. I’m not sure why leaving a comment seems to help some people. The other thing that works for me is to clear my browser cache and then reload the page. When I’m finished writing my cookbook, I’ll be going back to these old posts and reformatting them without the plugin to avoid these problems – sorry for the inconvenience!

    1. That shouldn’t happen – could you tell me which recipe you’re clicking on so I can check it out, please? Thanks! 🙂

  5. Formatting is all off? I see the HTML and code is displaying funky. EX: Carnitas[/ezcol_1quarter] [ezcol_1quarter]Roast Chicken & Gravy[/ezcol_1quarter]
