Healthy slow cooker recipes for weight loss

Save dinner and your weight-loss plan with healthy slow cooker recipes

Slow cookers (a.k.a. Crockpots) are a favorite kitchen tool of busy cooks. Prep and assemble the ingredients when you have a chance early in the day, set the timer, and the slow cooker takes it from there. If you are looking at purchasing a slow cooker, consider getting one with a timer and warm setting so that you can set it and "forget" it. Don't worry, the warm setting helps prevent overcooking if you are not around to turn it off. Now, add that wonderful little appliance to your arsenal of support on your weight-loss journey, and you have the perfect match. Read on to find out how.
