Hello I’m Shannon aka FitSlowCookerQueen
I am a home cook living in Los Angeles with my husband and dog. When I got married 5 years ago, one of the wedding gifts I received was a slow cooker. Fast forward 6 months and I found myself at my all-time highest weight. I refer to it as my wedding weight. Being faced with 2 choices: I could either buy all new clothes or embrace a healthy lifestyle, I chose the latter and broke out that slow cooker. The first thing I did was throw those old slow cooker recipes away! I couldn’t believe how convenient yet unhealthy most slow cooker recipes were. They all called for ‘cream of something’, pre-made mixes, artificial ingredients, high-sodium canned food, etc. Dissatisfied, I decided to start creating my own, HEALTHY slow cooker meals using mainly all-natural ingredients. A couple of months later I had dropped all that wedding weight and more.
I love developing my own recipes and showing people healthy cooking can taste good. People, cookbooks, blogs, Pinterest, Instagram…I find there is constant food inspiration in my life. I hope to encourage the same enthusiasm in you.
