Healthy Crockpot Recipes: Warm Buckwheat and Apples

I happen to think that healthy crockpot recipes are hard to come by. Sites are filled with concoctions that rely on onion soup mix or cans of creamed soup that have no place in a natural diet.

The good news is that cooking healthy food in a crockpot can be done, and there's no better way to get used to the idea than with a healthy breakfast recipe.

This recipe uses buckwheat groats. This is a gluten-free grain that boasts B-complex vitamins and a bunch of minerals. Steel-cut oats could be used instead of buckwheat groats.

Of course, I think the best part of this meal is that it is put together the night before and ready for you in the morning. Everyone who tries to eat a natural diet knows that it is time-consuming. No matter how you slice it, eating healthy requires forethought and commitment, so healthy crock pot recipes are one of my life-savers.

Extra bonus: The yummy smell of cinnamon wafting through the house is enough to get you out of bed!
