Bowl of slow cooker gumbo with rice and a spoon

Low Carb Slow Cooker Gumbo

The older I get, the more I appreciate a cozy, comforting bowl or soup or stew like this slow cooker gumbo.

Paleo, Whole30, low carb, and keto-friendly, this crockpot gumbo simmers away all day to create a perfect amalgamation of spicy veggies, chicken thighs, and hot Italian sausage. One big bowl of this Louisiana classic, and you’ll be glad you’ve got a whole crock of leftovers ready to go for the next day!

Crispy SunButter Chicken (Gluten Free)

The Crispy SunButter Chicken recipe and the accompanying post are sponsored by SunButter®! All opinions and experiences are my own.

Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve done it. Crispy SunButter Chicken, breaded, fried to perfection, and drizzled with a hard-to-resist nut free sauce.

Sound good to you? This recipe is inspired by a dish — Peanut Butter Chicken — that pops up at Chinese buffets in the Midwest (I know, I know … I typically only go to those kinds of restaurants when the in laws insist that’s where they want to grab dinner with us).

With mornings and evenings steadily getting cooler and we inch towards fall, my spouse had just on request for me: can we eat more soup this year? For someone who resists eating veggies like a 3-year-old refusing broccoli at dinner, Tjay is sure willing to overlook his vegetable misgivings as long as they’re swimming in broth.

This dairy free soup recipe is gluten free, paleo, keto, and Whole30 friendly – gotta love those recipes that check a ton of boxes!
