Help! Need Low Carb Crockpot recipes

I am a single mom that is also a college student and I just added a working mom to that. I will be getting dd up at 7 a.m. every morning and getting her off to school then getting myself ready for work from 9 to 3:30 and then going to class two days a week from 3:45/4:00 to 6:30/6:45 and then getting home about 6:15 two other nights and then on some Fridays I will get home at 3:30, and other Fridays I will be on the road driving to North Carolina to get my nieces and then to take them back on Sunday. NOt only this but I have two OTHER classes online which will take up my weekends-(meaning they are due on Sunday midnight), P.S. I will have to work 2 weekends on Saturday's. On top of that I may have inhome therapy for my ADHD/Bipolar daughter, so in other words...are lives are gonna be REALLY complicated from now on...

I am gonna buy a crockpot but I will need ideals of foods...I will have to take my lunch everyday as well, so I need ideals so I can have it for dinner and maybe even take it for lunch the next day!!!

Thanks, I need to look over these recipes for sure

I was at the store today and didn't have these ideals with me so I was stumped. I bought some Banquet Crockpot Beef Stew mix and that's all I could think of. Thanks, this is new for me but this is wonderful because we have a meal waiting on us when we get home and I no longer have time to cook at home any more.

Saving my "recipe" for tomorrow. Ended up fixing turkey burgers, baked potato wedges, and tossed salad tonight. Tired after running the brush mower up and down that long driveway! Supposed to get another round of lots of rain tomorrow and maybe some bad weather with it so will be staying inside if it comes early and doing some stuff in here that needs to be done. Have a good evening!

Hi Leasmom

I found this recipe in an email this morning. It sounds great to come home to after a long day. You could always make faux mashed potatoes the day before to heat up and add a veggie......MMMM!!

Just be sure to watch the carb count on the packet of dry stuff. I have found them with just 1-2 carbs per serving.


Easy & Good Crockpot Beef Roast

1 Beef Roast (sized for your crockpot)
1/2 Cup of Water
1 Packet of Ranch Dressing Mix
1 Packet of Italian Dressing Mix
1 Packet of Brown Gravy Mix

I have used other seasoning mixes with great results, garlic and
herb, au jus mix, onion soup mix etc.

Put roast in crockpot, pour water around the base. Sprinkle all 3
dry seasoning packets over roast. Cook for 6-7 hours on low.





Enjoy!
Tami


Im going to try this one too!!
