Do you have a slow cooker hidden somewhere in your kitchen? Here at The Source Bulk Foods, we couldn’t live without ours! As the cooler months roll in, it’s time to dust off your slow cooker and get cooking... slowly.  
  • Why use a slow cooker?


    Slow cookers offer a healthy method of cooking and require only a small amount of effort. They are economical; they’re cheap to buy, and you can make the most of low-cost, pantry staples like spices, herbs, grains and legumes as well as inexpensive cuts of quality meat.

    Not only does slow cooking help tenderise the meat to perfection and bring out the delicious flavours of food, but it also helps break down the collagen found in bones to gelatin. Studies show that regular natural gelatin intake can reduce stiffness, alleviate joint pain, improve skin health and help to heal the gut lining.

    Slow cooking is a fuss-free and versatile way to cook. You can throw any kind of seasonal vegetables, herbs, spices, broths or water together then add some organic free-range animal protein or legumes.

    An added bonus of slow-cooking meat is the nourishing bone broth it provides. We also stock our very own nourishing Bone Broth Powder, you can find them at your nearest store. Bone broth can provide your body with minerals such as phosphorus, magnesium and other trace elements in a highly absorbable form. Bone broth is known to be healing for the gut and can help to boost immunity. For a vegetarian/vegan alternative try our Vegetable Broth Powder.

    Here, we share our four favourite slow cooker recipes that will keep you and your loved ones nourished, warm and healthy.
