30 Healthy Crockpot Dinners

It's a new year and I know most of us start the new year resolving to be healthier. Of course, I'm one of them! I don't know about you, but I indulged MAJORLY this holiday season and I'm looking forward to preparing fresh, delicious meals for my family.

I'm not ready to give up my beloved Crock-Pot*, though! I was bound and determined to find some healthy slow cooker recipes. For my family, I was looking for recipes that didn't contain any cream soups, limited cheese, and no sweetners besides honey. And of course, chock full of healthy veggies! I hope you find some new, healthier Crock-Pot* recipes to try!
