Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Favorite Healthy Crock Pot Recipes of the Week
When it comes to ease and convenience, it’s hard to beat slow cooking. I use my crock pot(s) often to guarantee we always have a steady supply of healthy food ready and waiting for quick and easy meals.
Otherwise fattening fast food and take- out can be way too tempting at the end of a long day.
What do I love about crock pot cooking? What’s not to love? Easier, less messy, less stressful and more forgiving than stove-top cooking, slow cooking makes healthy eating easy, even on busy days. Perfect for anyone wanting to eat better and/or lose weight.
With a crock pot instead of worrying all day about what to make for dinner, you know a healthy and delicious meal will be ready and waiting when you get home. Another great benefit of cooking this way is that you don’t need to cook every night if you don’t want to.
Slow cooking lends itself to leftovers, which can be eaten the next night, re-purposed into a new meal, or frozen for future meals, which makes meal planning so much easier.
I often use my crock pots on the weekends to make light and healthy meals to warm up during the week.
If you’re following Weight Watchers® SmartPoints™ Plan, 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.
