I've loved most of the recipes I've made from this website: www.crockpot365.blogspot.com. Many are or can be fairly inexpensive. All are or can be gluten-free, too, if that's a concern for some people, though the gluten-free versions will often be more expensive, if they use gluten-free replacements as opposed to just being naturally gluten-free. We've had to scale back our use of her recipes, though, as quite a few of them rely on soy sauce, and my stomach just can't tolerate soy this pregnancy, for some reason.
You can sub Bragg's Liquid Aminos for the soy sauce.

Bragg's is also made from soybeans, so I don't think that will help.

Worcestershire sauce has a similar flavor profile to soy sauce, and I don't think it has soybeans in it. Not sure though.

What about coconut liquid aminos? I haven't tried them yet.

Have never heard of those before. I'll have to look into that.

From much reading and researching about soy it's my understanding that soy sauce does not have the same effect bc it's fermented. I don't know if you've tried it and it didn't agree with you, or you just cut it out bc problems with other soy products, but just thought I lend my two sense for what it's worth just in case you wanted to give it a try.

Actually, I first figured out soy was the issue because of soy sauce. It was only a few months later I figured out soy bean oil was also an issue. (I can tolerate lecithin, but possibly only because there's not usually a lot of it in food.) Still really hoping this is over after baby comes!
