Healthy Slow-Cooker Meals
Nothing beats a warm, home-cooked meal on a chilly day... except, perhaps, eliminating the hot-stove phase to get there. That's where the slow cooker comes in. What's great about slow-cooker meals is: They're often one-pot dishes (Less cleanup! Complete meal!). So check out these recipes to get some inspiration for your slow cooker this week:
