When it comes to cookbooks, I have a soft spot for the ones that focus on saving time without compromising on nutrition or taste. My fellow foodie blogger friend Arsy Vfrom Rubies & Radishes has a brand new cookbook that is right up my alley, and I’m so excited I get to share it with you!
One of my favorite tools for real food living? The slow cooker, actually more specifically, my Instant Pot (pressure cooker and slow cooker all in one!). This is the tool that Arsy is tackling in her latest ebook, Real Food Slow Cooker Recipes. Each recipe is perfect for when you don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen, but still want a nourishing, delicious meal at the end of the day (and a kitchen that smells amazing!). Better yet, each recipe is pure paleo – no grains, dairy, sugar, natural sweeteners, legumes or alcohol to be found.

Just to give you a taste of what Real Food Slow Cooker Recipes is all about, I’m sharing with you one of my favorite recipes from the book – Slow Cooker Meatza-Mess! This super flavorful recipe can be topped with almost anything, and it great for households with a variety of palates.
Also, be sure to check out her other amazing cookbooks. I have them all!
