3 Ways Your Slow Cooker Can Help You Get Healthier (Page 4)

Resolution 3: Save Money

How the slow cooker can help: Crock pots lend themselves to stews and other one-pot meals that let you stretch more expensive ingredients, like meat, further. You can save $6.45 per month ($78 a year) if you replace 1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breast [$4.99] with 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs [$3.49] once a week for 30 days. Try these Slow–Cooker Recipes for $3 or Less per Serving, such as Rich Chicken Stew and Pulled Pork (pictured). Bonus: chances are a slow-cooked meal will yield leftovers (like these Crock Pot Recipes to Cook Once, Eat Twice). Bring leftovers for lunch the next day and you’ll save on lunch money, too!
