A slow-cooker is an amazingly convenient kitchen tool that really makes life easier for busy people. You can basically just throw a bunch of healthy, whole food ingredients into your slow cooker, go to bed, and have a delicious healthy lunch to take with you to work! Or, have your slow-cooker running while you’re at work to come home to a hearty, healthy soup or stew for dinner! Especially now, as the weather begins to cool, this is one time-saving tool that you’ll come to rely on for quick, healthy meals. Check out some of my favorite slow-cooker recipes below… Note how short the preparation time and directions are!
