7 Healthy Crock Pot Recipes to Free Up Your Nights

I am in love. And my husband is totally OK with it. My crock pot is my best friend and secret weapon, especially as my training hours increase to double daily sessions on top of working full time. My trusty slow cooker ensures that a hot meal is waiting for me after a weary session at the pool or tempo run on the trails.


The great thing about a crock pot is that you can dump a bunch of ingredients in the pot, crank it up and let it go. Meals can be as healthy or decadent as you desire, and it’s quite difficult to mess it up. I actually own two crock pots – a cheap 1.5 quart model with a dial control and a fancy six-quart model that has a digital timer and automatically switches to warming at the end of the cooking time. Here are some of my tried-and-true recipes that are in heavy rotation come peak week:


Balsamic Pork crock pot recipe Crock pot balsamic pork with apples and onions: Add a bag of steamed veggies or a green salad and you’re good to go.
This simple lentil soup is crock-pot friendly! Lentil soup
Crock Pot Risotto Crockpot risotto: For the days you want to dress up dinner, but aren’t interested in stirring rice all afternoon.
Make vegetarian chili fast and easy in your crock pot! Legendary vegetarian chili: Hearty and healthy! This is a crowd pleaser that will make you forget it’s lacking meat.
White Bean Stew made in your slow cooker. White bean stew: Ladle this over couscous and top with feta and it’s a perfect dinner.

And try Kelly’s Turkey & Quinoa Stuffed Peppers and Three-Ingredient Pulled Pork Sandwiches – all made quickly and easily in the crock pot.
