healthy slow cooker recipes

I use my slow cooker year round, but once it starts to get cooler in Dallas, it’s an every week staple.  I have a crockpot and an Instant Pot, and I kind of go in waves with which I prefer.  For a long time after I got my Instant Pot, I thought it was more of a hassle than it was worth – taking 20-25 minutes to build pressure before the cooking time even starts, and feeling like I had to be right there in the kitchen with it, for fear that it would explode.  But right now, I’m loving it even more than my crockpot – getting a meal done from start to finish in an hour, while I’m cooking other things in between, is a time saver, and I’m likely in the kitchen anyway doing my regular Sunday food prep.  (Plus, it won’t *actually* explode … this is just in my head!).  Speaking of Sunday food prep, if you want more tips on meal planning and food prep, you can find my Meal Planning Mastery webinar here.  And I am just loving keeping my weekly meal plan in my Pepper Planner, which you can find here!

Regardless of whether you prefer a crockpot or an Instant Pot, these healthy slow cooker recipes are sure to save you time and put healthy, delicious, and nutritious meals on the table.  I hope you enjoy these 20 healthy slow cooker recipes that I love!
