  1. 🤗So all the ingredients that goes into the zip bags, you can freeze and dump into the crockpot later to cook?🤗

  2. This is wonderful my goodness. Thank you so much.

  3. LOVE IT!>>>ur2.pl/1064 (You cannot set it to start at a certain time but that's not a deal breaker for me). You can set it to run on HIGH, LOW for X hours which is really nice! I love the locking handles too!

  4. This is exactly what I was looking for. THANK YOU!!!

  5. I’m late to finding this but I’m soooo glad I did.

  6. This is literally so helpful! I am switching to a plant based diet but I'm in college and I have NO kitchen. Since I do have a crockpot, these types of recipes are SO helpful. You have no idea sobs

  7. Can I cook this in a regular pot on the stove?

  8. I love potato soup is it healthy? Looks delicious love your food videos. I’m new so just started watching I’m sure I will find a lot of great things. Tfs 💕💕💕

  9. Great idea. Could the prepped freezer bags be put in the freezer. I was thinking I could take out of the freezer at night and then dump into the slow cooker with the other ingredients in the morning.

  10. Omg this is such a great idea! I have a few bags of frozen veggies and cans of beans that I’ve been putting off using…never really thought to use them in a crockpot to make soup!

  11. Great ideas! As you are an influencer, can I suggest you use reusable storage containers in your videos so that others might do the same? I know glass containers don’t always fit in the freezer…

  12. Great idea! They all looked amazing

  13. This looks so good!!!! More crockpot recipes please!!!!!!!

  14. I missed something. How come the potatoes stew is green?

  15. I have never used soy milk in my tortilla soup but next time I may try it but I would put it in at the very end before serving because it does tend to make little tiny white specks which is curdling in the Crock-Pot cooking that long. The creamy potato stew soup is one I want to make right away! I don't know as though I can because of the dropping I don't have a cam person right now so there isn't an inch of space in my kitchen. 🙁

  16. Thanks for these recipes!

  17. this is so creative, I don't know why I never thought of this

  18. Have you guys tried "dump dinners"?

  19. Can I skip the nutritional yeast and what should I substitute with ?
