Slow Cooker???

On MFP in the recipes section, they have sooooo many recipes using them. Always come across them :)
I have the Tesco's one and it's good. I must admit, I had it for 9/10 months and never used it but I braved it few weeks ago and SC a whole roast chicken (just chucked whole chicken in as is with no water but skin removed and cooked on high for 5hrs. It came out beautifully flakey and lush :D I always cook thighs/legs in the SC but I'm a big fan of chicken - my other SC friends tell me cheap cuts of beef come out beautifully in their SC. They use it mainly for hearty stews :D
You can make really low cal stews in it.... Some cheap beef, couple of tins of tomatoes, veg(onions, peppers , carrots, mushrooms) and some herbs/garlic/worcester sauce.... It is fab x

I use it for casseroles, stews, soups, it's great!
Stupid question, I apologise in advance!!

I've looked at the recipes on MFP for the slow cooker.......and they do look scrummy......but how do you work out the calories??



Back to basics
Put all the ingredients in MFP in the recipe section then where it says serves how many put the amount of servings it would serve. Then it will give u cals per serving x

I made a gorgeous stew in mines yesterday - 9 hrs on high and the meat was melting in my mouth - I am going to use mines a lot more

Think I might try soup in it x

There's a recipe section in this calorie counting part of the site and I think there's already a thread about slow cooker recipes. Go share the ones you guys have posted here, they sound lovely!
