Health Tip: Cook Healthier With a Slow Cooker

Suggestions for crock pot use

(HealthDay News) -- A slow cooker is an easy way to prepare a variety of healthier dishes that are ready for you at the end of a long day.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests:

  • Use weekends or evenings when you have ample time to prepare ingredients.
  • Cut uniformly-sized pieces to ensure that they'll cook evenly.
  • Store ingredients in air-tight containers for no more than three days.
  • Put all ingredients in the crock pot's removable insert and store in the fridge overnight. This may require longer cooking time, since ingredients will be cold.
  • Use leftovers in a new dish, such as last night's roast used in tacos or stew.
