Why Go Crock Pot?
A beginner prepper is just a practical person. We begin with cutting down processed food and providing ourselves with satisfying meals for now or later.
As we try out our different recipes, we learn more about our food storage and wares.
When we naturally heat our food, instead of nuking it in the microwave, we retain both flavor and nutrition.
Meal preparation starts to become an efficient way to provide your family with wonderful, warm meals. Instead of having to prepare multiple dishes for dinner, a crockpot meal can be taken out of the freezer and placed back into the pot. Simmer as you tend to other projects and tasks around the house, and dinner is ready to go, potentially even tastier than when you first prepared your stew.
The crockpot is also tremendously safe. In the early morning, you can chuck some chicken broth, potatoes, carrots, and ground beef, and you have the makings of a very satisfying soup by the time you come back home from work.
Disasters are rare as long as you have placed your crock pot correctly and have ensured no pets or children can disturb the power cord.

Crock Pot Meals Save Money
