These healthy crock-pot recipes are sure to get your creative juices flowing! Perfect for coming home to a warm dinner on a winters night or in the summertime when it’s too hot to turn the oven on.

Healthy crock-pot recipes are a busy person’s best friend. And in the summer when my unvented oven starts pouring heat out of the top of itself the second I turn it on? The crock-pot starts getting pulled out more and more.

But the most popular crock-pot recipes are filled with canned soup and high fructose corn syrup packed sauces that we try to stay away from most of the time. No longer! Now we can the crock-pot save the day and dive into these dishes any time of year without fear for our waistlines. All hail the glorious crock-pot!
