1. Slow Cooker Lemon Chicken and Orzo Soup

Forget about opening that can of soup from the store, laden with sodium, mushy vegetables, and limp noodles. Instead, fire up that slow cooker that's been gathering dust since last year and enjoy a freshly made soup with ease. And it will taste like it's been cooking all day — because it has. With just 164 calories and 1.3 grams fat per 1 ½ cup serving, it's easy on the waist, too.
