Recipe: Slow Cooker Paleo Pot Roast

I hope you had an amazing Christmas and are enjoying some time off.
I recently started committing myself to making one new Paleo recipe each week. Often it’s a slow cooker recipe because we can have that for left overs for 2-3 days after.
I really encourage you to try this approach. It keeps your eating plan fun and you don’t get bored with chicken and veggies.
Eating chicken and veggies every day really sucks.
I’ve been there.
There are so many resources for creating awesome, delicious Paleo recipes. Even for someone like me who’s so-so in the kitchen but mostly kinda lazy.
I really have to be in the mood to cook.
I do it mostly on Sundays and Mondays. After that the week gets too busy and just like everyone else, I want something quick and easy.
If you have these easy recipes already cooked up in the slow cooker, you are golden.
Here’s one for you:
