16 Slow Cooker Recipes that are Both Healthy & Delicious

16 delicious and healthy slow cooker recipes to make year-round! With nourishing soups and stews, plus delicious tacos and chilis, these slow cooker recipes will be your new favorites to feed a crowd or meal prep for the week.

It’s officially 30 degrees here in Chicago and I’m starting to think that summer was only 5 minutes long. Anyone else? If you’re like me and are breaking out the hats, gloves and parkas, sending you all of the cozy vibes and of course my very best slow cooker recipes to make all day long.

There’s truly nothing better than coming home to a warming bowl of soup or chili on a cold day. OR melting some gooey cheese onto a healthier turkey sloppy joe (omg so good). The best part about these slow cooker recipes is that you can toss everything into your slow cooker and literally just let it work its magic.

Aka add the goods to your slow cooker, clean your bathroom, put on a face mask, play with your cat, start re-watching Game of Thrones, and then come back to a delicious dinner. Nothing better.

Scroll through and pick out your favs to make for the week! I’d suggest my famous turkey chili to kick things off. Be sure to use the hashtag #ambitiouskitchen when you share on Instagram, or post a photo in our Facebook group.

Enjoy, xo!
