27 healthy-ish winter slow cooker recipes

With Metro Vancouver firmly socked in (our own version of) winter, it’s time to pull out the slow cooker. The ideal dinner mate when it’s cold and bleak outside, slow cooker’s are a busy mama or dada’s best friend. We love the ability to throw a bunch of ingredients into ours in the morning and come home to a delicious dinner. Or better yet, toss a few things in at night and wake up to a warm and hearty breakfast. There is no shortage of inventive dishes you can make in a slow cooker; you can even bake bread! We’ve focused on more healthful recipes, but have thrown a few tasty treats in for good measure.
