Have you Tried Cooking with a Slow Cooker?

Updated: Mar 10, 2019

It's a great time saver and it cooks some amazing, healthy and tasty meals. You just put all ingredients into the pot and after 4 - 8 hours (depends on the recipe) you come to a ready meal! You can put it on before you go to work or when you just don't have the time to spend 5 hours in the kitchen.

This is my favorite recipe for chicken curry coconut soup. It has a lot of fibre so it will fill you up.
