At the first hint of fall, I break out both of my slow cookers and get to work on all the delicious low carb slow cooker recipes. In fact, I use my crockpot year round. It is great in the winter when you just want to curl up on the couch and don’t feel like cooking and it is equally as great in the summer for transporting food to cookouts, low carb barbecues or any type of fun get together.

One of my favorite type of low carb recipes to make in the slow cooker is definitely low carb soups and stews. This low carb chowder being among the top favorite.
