25 Healthy Slow Cooker Recipes

Slow Cooker Recipes have a bad reputation for being heavy, so to break the negative hype I have pulled together Healthy Slow Cooker Recipes. This collection of lightened up meals covers everything from breakfast to soups to sides, and hearty meals.

25 Healthy Slow Cooker Recipes You'll Love

At first glance, all of the recipes in this collection look hearty and sort of like they might stick-to-your-ribs. But look a little more closely and you’ll find lightened up substitutes and lots of good-for-you goodies in these Healthy Slow Cooker Recipes. Traditionally heavy meats are swapped out for their leaner counterparts. There are vegetarian and vegan options. There’s even one that’s Paleo-friendly! We’ve added fresh fruits , delicious veggies, and whole grains, and I am so positive that my whole family will enjoy every single one of these!
