Over the last almost 4 years my readers have heard me praise my favorite slow cooker.
Rival SCRC501-SS 5-Quart Countdown Slow Cooking Crock Pot Cooker, Stainless Steel
Well I am going to praise it again. I can’t speak highly enough of this slow cooker. One of the main reasons that I love this one is the ease of which I can program it to switch to warm when my meal is cooked and I am at work. I never have to worry that my dinner will burn or be too dry to eat.
As you know I plan my meals each week and I can’t stress enough the importance of planning your meals if you have Diabetes. Failing to plan is planning to fail. I am not saying that you have to buy this slow cooker but I am saying that my life has been made much easier by using this. I can literally take 10 minutes the night before and prepare the food that will go into it the next morning. Before work I take 5 minutes and throw it into the slow cooker and I have enough food to last us 2 evenings.
Some people think that I must be cooking non-stop and that isn’t true. By planning ahead, cooking double and freezing leftovers I only cook perhaps 4 times a week and I never eat out. I make my own breakfasts, lunch and dinner each week. This slow cooker has made my life so much easier.
