The best part about slow-cookers is that they’re incredibly versatile. Not a morning person? Save yourself some time in the early hours by prepping a healthy breakfast the night before. You can put all the ingredients for oatmeal, quinoa breakfast porridge or another healthy, hot dish in your slow-cooker and set it to low, so it cooks overnight. Bonus: You’ll be woken up by the smell of whatever spices you added.
Always in a rush on weeknights? Add your vegetables and grains of choice, vegetable broth, spices and your favourite protein to your slow-cooker in the morning, and not only will you have a healthy, balanced meal when you get home from work, you also won’t be tempted to pick up takeout on your way home. Instead, you’ll have time to hit the gym.
