19 Healthy Crock Pot Recipes You Need In Your Life

The Crock Pot makes eating healthy as easy as (low-fat) pie.

You can cook just about anything in a Crock Pot. Slow cookers can whip up something appropriate for any type of meal: think meaty stews and savory sides, fiber-packed oatmeals and breakfasts that are prepared overnight and even chocolatey baked goods and thick Greek yogurt.

Yep, it's a pretty magical, multi-talented appliance that deserves a permanent spot in every kitchen -- especially come winter, when nothing pleases a belly more than a warm, simmering something that sticks to the bones. Virtually any Crock Pot recipe will fill your heart and stomach with happiness, but these 19 recipes will give you peace of mind, too. Every single one is good for you, tasty and worthy of saving for tomorrow's lunch.
