15 Healthy 5-Ingredient Crockpot Recipes

I want my whole family to eat healthy, but sometimes life gets in the way.  It’s hard for me to cook at 5pm with a one-year-old pulling on my leg and three other little kids who need my attention too.

Healthy Crockpot Recipes

The easiest thing for me to make is slow cooker meals. I can quickly add the ingredients in the morning and my house smells amazing by dinnertime.  A lot of the flavors mix together so my kids are more likely to eat their veggies that way.  Yay!

I’ve tried hundreds of slow cooker recipes myself over the years (maybe even thousands!), so I decided to put together a list of my favorite healthy slow cooker recipes with five ingredients or less.  These are all meals that I feel good serving my family.

I’ve tried every single one of these recipes myself, so I can vouch that they’re healthy, delicious, and easy to make.  Dig in, Friends!
