Fall is here and now there’s a bite in the air. While the days are getting shorter, they are still jam packed, which is why there’s nothing better than coming home in the evening to a house filled with the delicious smells of a hot meal that’s been simmering in your slow cooker all day, especially if it’s a low carb or keto-friendly slow cooker recipe that your whole family will love.

Throw everything in the slow cooker in the morning and voila… dinner’s ready when you’re ready. And the leftovers are just as tasty.
