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:

Breakfast

Whole-Grain Breakfast Porridge: Think beyond oats with this multigrain hot cereal.

Dinner
Chicken Jambalaya: Chicken, rice, peppers, peas, ham... need we say more?

Red-Cooked Chicken with Assorted Vegetables Better than takeout, guaranteed.

Pot Roast or Shredded Pork: Leaner cuts of meat do well in the slow cooker.

Turkey Roast Dip with Melted Gruyere: Slow cooking r oast turkey makes a tender filling for this dip sandwich (pictured up top).

Vegetarian Chili: The perfect recipe for Meatless Monday!

Slow-Simmered Beef with Potatoes: Serve this with a green salad or some steamed green beans to round out the meal.

Hungry Girl Chunky Soup: This satisfying low-calorie soup is great for lunch or dinner.
