Slow cookers are perfect for cooler weather days, especially when those days are busy. If you’re a Trim Healthy Mama, they’re perfect for helping you stay on plan when life is hectic! You’ll want to give these low carb slow cooker recipes a try so get them in your menu plans today.
Ok well, don’t actually forget it. That could be bad. But you know what I mean…
There’s just something wonderful about your evening meal cooking slowly all day, filling the home with mouth-watering aromas.
I remember as a child being scolded by my mom for lifting the lid to her crock pot. It was that 70’s harvest green one.
Really, I just couldn’t help myself! The smell of her vegetable beef soup was intoxicating and I just wanted to deeply inhale that comforting goodness.
Slow Cooking Tip: did you know that every time you take the lid off your slow cooker it adds 15 to 20 minutes to your overall cook time? Lifting the lid allows heat to escape, which takes time to build back up so keep the lid on as much as possible!
Low Carb Slow Cooker Recipes Make THM S Meals Easy!
Many low carb meals consist of just meat and veggies. Those ingredients are so well suited for slow cooking!
Whether you’re making soups, stews, casseroles, or just slow cooking a big hunk of meat, your THM S meals made in a slow cooker makes your meal preparation mostly hands-off.
This means having more time for other things, like spending time with family, catching up on housework, or blissfully putting up your feet and reading a favorite book for once.
Slow Cooker Recipes on OSM?
Confession: since I got my Instant Pot (and Ninja Foodi), I don’t use my slow cookers much at all.
Both pressure cookers have a slow cook function but I mostly use it to pressure cook (or, air fry in my Foodi).
But, I do have recipes that are easily made in a slow cooker:
Braised Chipotle Chili (S or E) – just cook on low for 3 to 4 hours or high for 2.
Quick and Meaty Chili (S, E, FP) – cook on low for 3 to 4 hours or high for 2.
Nourishing Tomato Florentine Soup (S) – cook on low 4 hours or high for 2 or 3.
Garlic and Rosemary Tomato Soup (S) – cook on low 4 hours or high for 2 or 3.
Chicken Tacos (S or FP) – cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or high for 4. Shred chicken before serving.
Tomato Basil Chicken (S or FP) – cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or high for 4. Shred chicken before serving.
Quick and Easy Chicken and Peas (S) – cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or high for 4. Add thickener and sour cream or yogurt before serving.
Mushroom Bay Chicken (S) – cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or high for 4. Add thickener before serving.

The first section of this cookbook is actually labeled Crockpot Meals (check out the soups section too, many can be made in a slow cooker)!
Most are THM S (low carb) a few are THM FP (fuel pull, low in fat and carbs), a few are THM E, and some can be made S, E, or FP.
Since Fuel Pull meals are low carb, I’m including them below. To make them an S just add more fat to your meal.
