Who has time to cook healthy veggie-packed meals? You do – when you put your slow cooker to work for you. Often when we think of slow-cooker meals we think of heavy, creamy, fat-laden comfort foods. The truth is, slow cooker meals can be comforting AND healthy, not to mention the fact they offer the ultimate in efficiency. Simply toss in some fresh veggies and plant-based protein, and come home to a delicious, simmering meal. Plus, you’ll have leftovers all week. What does a healthy vegan slow cooker meal look like? Here are the common denominators:
- Plant-based protein to keep you feeling full and satisfied.
- Fiber-filled foods to not only help you stay full, but also to help stabilize blood sugar levels and lower cholesterol.
- Nutrient-dense veggies to give you vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
