Once upon a time there was a pin for Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas. That pin was part of a wave of pins that came from a website claiming: 100 Days of No Processed Foods – All the meal planning is done for you! That Chicken Fajitas post is mine…but the No Processed Foods page was from another site.

Some of you found Stacy Makes Cents from that pin and now you’re regular readers. And for that, I’m super excited! I hope you like the fajitas – they’re a favorite around here.

But for some reason, someone got their panties in a wad and that pin got banned as “spam.” So, now that “100 Days of No Processed Foods” pin comes directly to my website and some of y’all feel cheated…sorta like I feel when I have to go a day without peanut butter.

SO, since that post was so popular I decided to create one of my own. Here it is! 100 Days of NO Processed Meals – Crock Pot Style.

100 Days of No Processed Foods: Crock Pot Style

By “no processed” foods I mean that nothing in these recipes calls for cream-of junk (unless it’s homemade), any pre-packed item like Italian Dressing, or Velveeta (bless Velveeta’s heart), etc.

You WILL find ingredients like:  soy sauce, ketchup, canned beans, taco seasoning and mustard. Why? Because those things are minimally processed and you can even make your own scratch version if you like.

Mostly these recipes call for good, wholesome ingredients: meat, vegetables, broth and seasonings. But they’re put together in such a way that they make you wanna slap yo mama (if you’re not from the south, please know that’s a good thing).

Some of the recipes are mine and some are from other bloggers. I hope you enjoy the list and that it’s a good resource for you. And if you like this post, you’ll likely enjoy my post of 100 Crock Pot Dessert Recipes as well. And while I’m thinking of what you might like, I’d bet you’d enjoy my books: Keep Crockin’: A Poorganic Slow Cooker Cookbook and Crock On: A Semi-Whole Foods Slow Cooker Cookbook – both are available in print or as eBooks. ;-) Shameless book plug.  Okay…ON TO THE RECIPES!

  • Stacy

    Everyone should have at least 4. :-)

  • Stacy

    Good luck and godspeed. :-)

  • Kittie Nolan

    Are the beans put in dry, or soaked overnight?

    • Stacy

      I’m sorry – which one are you referring to?

    Your site is awesome! I am always searching for simple, tasty, healthy and quick meals. I think I’ve hit the jackpot when I found you. I was searching for tips on how to cook beans in a crock pot and your link was the first one I visited. The roman beans are soaking now and will. Be crocked tomorrow. Thanks for all the recipes and tips! Can’t wait to start on the 100 day list.

    • Stacy

      I hope you find some really great ones – make the Chicken and Quinoa first. :-)

  • Anna

    Are any of these recipes able to be frozen? Combine in a bag, throw in the freezer, take out and cook whenever?

    • Stacy

      Some of them might work for that – you’d just have to look at each recipe and see. :-)

  • Cinamongurl

    Just curious…this states that they are not processed meals, however they use processed ingredients (i.e canned foods) which are typically higher in sodium and can contain GMO’s and other chemicals.

    Lots of helpful recipes here, but the title is misleading. Noodles and cheese are both processed items, as well as tortillas, etc.

      You could always make your own pasta, tortillas and cheese. The pasta and tortillas are easy, the cheese is a little more time consuming.

  • VitazZa
