The slow cooker is a great way to not only save time and energy in the kitchen but calories and fat, too. This versatile countertop appliance has the ability to turn tough, lean cuts of meat into juicy, fork-tender meals, and it locks in moisture without added fat. To prove that comfort food can be low in calories but high in flavor, we compiled 14 of our favorites, from potato soup to beef and mushrooms--all made in your slow cooker!

    I am looking for more Paleo-friendly recipes, recipes low in carbs, low in processed ingredients, high in micronutrients and low in fat....Keep in mind that the food has to be first of all healthy, then if it is great tasting that's a great benefit. - 3/21/2014   10:46:12 AM

    I love my slow cookers. I have a large one and smaller one. They make wonderful meals that are low-fat and low cal....You can even make some yummy low fat treats I would be lost without mine. - 9/30/2013   5:24:30 PM

    Both these recipes looked good, but did you check the sodium levels? They both have close to 800 mg per serving. That's too high in my household where we are dealing with high blood pressure and kidney disease. - 3/12/2013   3:44:48 PM

    We get lots of pumpkin & winter squash from our CSA farmer. A while back, I made a slow-cooker stew with pumpkin, onion, celery, and a pork roast. I didn't really have a recipe (we tend to do that a lot), but I made it like a regular stew. It was a big hit in my house. - 2/11/2013   2:58:34 PM
