Cheap and healthy slow cooker recipes

Cheap, Healthy, and Slow A slow cooker is one of the handiest appliances and biggest time savers to have in the kitchen. Pile in chopped vegetables, add prepped meat and seasoning, and in a few hours, a week's worth of food or one family-size meal is ready to eat. (Keep in mind that an Instant Pot can also be used as a slow cooker.) These recipes can help you eat healthy and save money and time this winter. First, a few tips: Browning meats and sautéing vegetables before adding them to the slow cooker can add flavor. If you top off a slow cooker meal with dairy or fresh herbs such as yogurt, milk, and cilantro, add them toward the end (they can curdle or wilt, respectively, if cooked for too long). Finally, resist opening the lid and stirring, which slows the cooking process considerably — and this is already slow cooking. Related: 50 Simple, Cheap, and Delicious Instant Pot Recipes

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
