Healthy Slow-Cooker Recipes Your Diet Needs

Healthy Slow Cooker Recipes

There are so many ways to eat healthy these days, and if you’ve read my piece on That Oregon Life about wondrous cauliflower, you know I like to find my recipes from the great people over at Delish.com. So this morning, having recently discovered that my mother did, in fact, leave her crockpot behind when she moved away, I decided I would look up healthy slow-cooker recipes.

Why did I think this was a good idea right before lunch? We may never know…

Slow-Cooker Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Oh, what up, Parmesan? Oh, what up, Garlic? Let’s throw some more parmesan on there, now more parsley, now some more parmesan. Alright, now– wait, too much– stop, that’s en– y’know what? Keep it coming. Gimme that parmesan for days.

Tangy Chicken Cacciatore

Any Final Fantasy fans here? Cacciatore → Cactuar? Anybody? No? Anyway, it’s a tasty meal, go make it.

Lemony Chicken and Orzo Soup

This zesty soup takes 9 orzo hours to make. Get it? Orzo. Like or-so? … I’m so sorry you’re reading this.

Cuban-Style Beef

A delicious not-contraband meal most authentically enjoyed with a no-longer contraband cigar.

Slow-Cooker Latin Chicken with Black Beans and Sweet Potatoes

Huius aromatici fumida disco pullum Latina cotidie spatium merito gratias fabas fiber beta carotene et dulcis–

Oh… wrong Latin.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tagine

If you double-took and thought it said “tangerine,” it’s okay. I did too. And while the recipe doesn’t actually call for anything to do with tangerines, I think that you could make a little tangerine work one way or another.
