7 Easy Slow-Cooker Recipes by The Diabetes Food Hub Team

The polar vortex may finally be receding, but there are plenty of cool days ahead. On a cold day, there are few things as nice as walking into a house and being greeted with the rich, hearty smell of a slow-cooker meal. Instant warmth! Another plus? Most slow-cooker recipes are easy to prepare, meaning you can pull everything together quickly in the morning, and have a warm, comforting meal waiting for you in the evening with very little effort. If you're new to slow-cookers, this relatively inexpensive appliance is well worth the investment. And if you have an Instant Pot or other multi-cookers, you have a slow cooker too! With a special lid, you can use the slow-cook setting found on nearly all of these devices.
