internet is chock full of low carb recipes. Better yet, go to your local library and check out some lowcarb or keto cookbooks. I use my crock pots all the time. Learn to read nutrition labels, you will astounded at the things you thought were low carb. Use fresh or frozen vegetables. I had a pretty intense expense outlay at first, but somethings you use again and again. Go through your cupboards and pantry and donate all the crap you have to friends, neighbors or ideally a food bank.. I try to do foods that will freeze soups, so I can pull them out and nuke for a quick meal.I also make salads 4-6 at a time and throw in lots of cukes and peppers, usually top them with some kind of protien. Good luck, I am a 62 yr old female that is in a wheelchair and have lost about 55 lbs in the last year, by watching what goes in my mouth, not able to do much exercise due to paralysis. , Enjoy the journey, you/ve got this!!!

Marc, there are so many crockpot recipes on the Internet. Just Google "Crockpot Recipes for Diabetics" and you will find tons of them. I have two crockpots and cook in them once in a while. You can even make homemade soup in them without all of the salt.
