Healthy Slow Cooker Recipes

Hearty, filling, and healthy meals that take little prep work

Sometimes, eating steamed fish with steamed veggies is only going to leave me wanting a giant brownie for dessert. What I need is a hearty meal that will leave me satisfied without leaving extra around the gut. Oh, did I mention I’m always exhausted and need someone else to cook? My problems are solved! Meals that are lower in fat and calories and the slow cooker takes care of the rest. Dreams do come true.

Char Siu Pork

Thyme-Scented White Bean Cassoulet

Provençal Chicken Supper

This chicken dish looks absolutely beautiful and delicious. Slow cooker, get to work.

Wine and Tomato Braised Chicken

Serve with pasta. Yes, you can still have pasta, whole-wheat or multi grain is best, but if you choose regular, white flour pasta make sure to eat a half-cup or less.

Greek Chicken and Vegetable Ragout

Slow cooker doesn't always mean American comfort food.
