I love my crockpot(s) - have 3 sizes! And use all the time. But,---- for an Atkins Low Carbr like my hubby, some of these recipes do not work - potato soup, meatloaf ingredients (bread...), no fried beans, beef stew ingredients (potato). For me and the level of carbs Spark gives on Heart Healthy nutrition guide, though, this works fine.

I love my crock pot too, and I use it often for real low carb meals, but these are not lower carb, they're at most medium carb meals. The advise for diabetics now is 50 g of carbs per day and it has been scientifically proven in October '14 that a low carb diet helps Type 2 diabetics better than the 100 to 150 gr of carb a day advise they're still giving people. To get some really good and much lower carb crockpot recipes try the book by Dana Carpender.

I LOVE MY CROCK POT ! ! ! In NJ I kept the crock pot going at least once a week in the winter time. I thought that I just about made everything in there, but surprise! There are now more creative more exciting recipes out there. Someone told me that they made breads, oatmeals with various flavoring, and that barely covers it all. I'm even thinking now of getting an extra one just because the one I have, has an inner dish that has started to crack and I don't ever want to be without one.

Now that I'm in Florida I still use it for pulled pork, pulled chicken, beef roasts. It involves little work and it naturally tenderizes the meats. So you don't have to pay extra for better cuts, if you are low on cash or entertain often.

The potato soup is called low calorie soup and it is. Only 140 calories for a serving. As to the carbs not all of us are afraid to eat carbs. We need them to fuel our minds and bodies. I will try the potato soup myself. It looks good.

Maybe i'm confused or i just don't understand what a LOW CARB diet is..... Potatoes, Flour etc.... that's not a low carb diet at all!

In my opinion, these are not low carb at all. I exchange turnips that only have 8 carbs compared to potatoes that have about 37 in soups etc. Turnips take on the flavor of anything it is cooked with and my kids couldn't tell they weren't potatoes.

Not a bad selection. I'd say more moderate carbs, though.

Although that potato soup.....:D

Great ideas especially with school starting again and schedules get busy with extra-curricular activities going on.

MOST of these recipes are not low carb, having too many carbohydrates and sugars for a diet that is in the range of 50 from carbs per day. The meatloaf includes bread, ketchup (with sugar) and brown sugar. The cabbage roll recipe includes rice cooked with the meat in the slow cooker. The curry includes potatoes and carrots. The beef stew has potatoes, carrots AND flour. Even the pork recipe calls for sugar!

Directions need to state that you should use a round crock pot which has a removable ceramic interior. (is there any other kind?) AND that the 8" baking pan should be placed on TOP of the crock pot. Something like a double boiler. The water is in the crock pot. The meat loaf is in the baking pan over the water. The lid needs to fit snugly on top of it all.

Hey Spark - I don't think you understand what "low carb" means. Potato soup? Seriously? How is that low carb?
