5 Healthy Slow Cooker Meals for Summer

Healthy Slow Cooker Meals for Summer

I don’t know about you, but I tend to use my slow cooker just as much, if not more, in the summer as in the fall and winter. It’s just the biggest time saver and when you are busy all day with work, summer activities or school, it is just a no-brainer to try and use it as much as possible. I’m constantly trying to find new recipes to try in my slow cooker, but these tried and true 5 Healthy Slow Cooker Meals tend to be my family’s favorites for now.

Let me know if you’ve tried one of these recipes – and let me know in the comments what you or your family’s favorite healthy slow cooker meal is! I’d love to add to my collection of recipes to try, links are most definitely welcomed!

I just recently purchased this crock pot and absolutely love it! My original Crock Pot bit the dust earlier this year (while making this awesome Skinnytaste Picadillo recipe) and when I was shopping for a new one I have to admit, I was a bit overwhelmed with options. This one was recommended to me by my friend Liz, and what SOLD me was the browning on the stove capability. What?? That is genius. There are so many recipes that require that initial browning on the stove step that I really try to avoid. I feel like my slow cooker recipe world just opened up a little wider now 🙂

Here is the Crock Pot I’ve been using for the last few months – I love it:

  1. Josh and I both LOVE your chicken pesto melts! I need to make them again!!

  2. I’d love ANY of these recipes for summer cooking, Aggie. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Thank goodness I’m not the only one whipping out the slow cooker in 80 degree summer heat!! My favorite thing to make is a shredded taco chicken with a homemade spice mix…but that pesto chicken looks right up my alley!

    • I’m making “all purpose” shredded chicken in the slow cooker as we speak! 🙂 You are definitely not the only one!

  4. Ummm, how GOOD does that pork look? Wow! I’ve been on the hunt for some amazing Slow Cooker recipes as I have a new found love for mine. I just pinned this one to try when we get back from hols next week. Thanks for sharing the recipe 🙂
