Spring has sprung! The weather is finally warming up, and people are starting to mow their lawns again. We love spring because it brings a feeling of new life! However, it can feel a little disheartening if you keep cooking the same old winter food. Even though those hearty, heavy meals can be delicious, they have no place on your spring menu. Of course, many of us get busier in the spring. As our schedules pick up and we finish out our projects and work before summer hits, we have less and less time to cook. Thankfully, the crock pot exists. Rather than worrying about how you’ll cook this week, get out your slow cooker and stop wasting precious time cooking! OhMyVeggies has a bunch of crock pot vegetarian recipes, but here’s a list of some recipes just for spring.
