It’s a new year and many of us are creating New Year’s Resolutions when it comes to our health, or at least trying to undo all the damage we did at Christmastime. The Whole 30 Program is a popular lifestyle overhaul that’s quite effective…if you can stick to it. Planning is paramount to a successful Whole 30 so if you’re plunging into the program this January, set yourself up for success by making it as convenient as possible. These easy Whole 30 Crock Pot recipes that go from your freezer to your slow cooker are a great way to do just that!
I like to increase the recipe proportions and eat the leftovers for lunch the next day. So if your Crock Pot is taking care of lunch and dinner thanks to these Whole 30 recipes, that just leaves you to worry about breakfast. (Got eggs and fruit? You’re good. :))
Whole 30 Crock Pot Recipes
You can prepare and freeze all 30 of these Whole 30 Crock Pot recipes before your Whole 30 begins. Some might require that you leave out an ingredient before freezing and add it while the dish is cooking. Others might require meat to be browned before freezing. If you’re new to freezer cooking, the linked resources will be helpful.
As far as Crock Pots go, I like this one in that it’s both programmable (perfect if you work outside the home) and has the cook and carry lid. Pair it with the Crock-Pot travel bag below and you’re all set if you need to bring dinner without or bring a Whole 30 Crock Pot recipe to a potluck so you’ll have something there to eat.
Slow cooker liners are also a huge help when you are using your Crock Pot on subsequent days. No muss no fuss, no cleaning a dirty crock 30 times.

A few readers have pointed out that some of these Whole 30 recipes, while Paleo, are not Whole 30 as-is. If you are familiar with the Whole 30 program, it should be easy to make slight modifications. Just use common sense and check labels.
