23 Nutritious Foods Everyone Should be Able to Prepare

20. An Easy SLOW-COOKER STEW

One of the biggest hurdles to eating more healthy food is cooking more healthy food. Sometimes you just don't have the time or energy, and that is why God created slow cookers. They cook things slowly, with plenty of liquid, which means you won't need nearly as much fat to keep things delicious. You just throw all the ingredients in in the morning, press a button, and come home later to a hot, healthy meal. Try this chicken enchilada soup, a root vegetable stew, or chicken provençal. Don't like stew? Try this lazy quinoa lasagna, or, if you're willing to spend a few extra minutes with a skillet, this mushroom barley risotto.
