Healthy Slow Cooker Recipes You Need In Your Life

It's the best of both worlds.

You can cook just about anything in a slow cooker. This all-purpose kitchen appliance 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.

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