Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Favorite Healthy Smart Point Crock Pot Recipes of the Week #5
Time for another installment of Favorite Healthy Crock Pot Recipes of the Week – All with SmartPoints!
If you’ve been following Simple Nourished Living for a while, you know I’m a huge fan of slow and easy crock pot cooking, which began in earnest back in October 2013 when I began a challenge to use my Crock Pot to make healthy Weight Watchers friendly recipes every day for a year.
Though I only made it 6 months, I learned a ton about the power of the crock pot for helping us stay on track with our healthy eating and weight loss goals.
And even wrote a cookbook to highlight many of the favorite recipes I made along the way:
If you’re following Weight Watchers® SmartPoints™ Plan or another diet plan for weight loss, it’s hard to beat the crock pot’s ability to provide light, healthy, flavorful low points meals that don’t require hours in the kitchen.
The topic of crock pot cooking seems to come up regularly at the WW meetings I attend. Most leaders and successful members I’ve met are big fans.
I love that this style of cooking provides a steady supply of leftovers that can be reheated or repurposed for quick and easy lunches and dinners.
Otherwise, fattening fast food and take-out can be way too tempting at the end of a long day.
I often use my crock pots on the weekends to make light and healthy meals to warm up during the week.
Since my first week’s collection of favorite healthy crock pot recipes was such a hit with readers, I feel compelled to keep them coming.
