10 Healthy Slow Cooker Recipes Perfect For Cozy Fall Meals

Fall is the best season for so many reasons. Sweaters, boots, hikes, foliage, and football are high on the list—but the greatest thing about fall is definitely the food. What’s more, so many classic fall dishes are pretty darn healthy, thanks to all the fruits and veggies in season.

Just because fall is a time to get cozy, though, doesn’t mean you necessarily want to spend tons of time in the kitchen. Why spend hours slaving over a stove when you could be sneaking in a sunset walk through the park (or, uh, binge-watching Netflix)?

Luckily, so many fall favorites—braised meats, veggie-packed stews, and even steel-cut oatmeal—are perfect candidates for set-it-and-forget-it slow cooker meals. Just throw your ingredients in the morning or evening before, and let the little machine work its magic.

This hearty chili is packed with varied flavors and textures, and a batch will yield a full week’s worth of packed lunches. Using chicken instead of ground beef lowers the saturated fat content, which is definitely a win.

Fall food is great, and so are fall hikes. The next time you hit a trail, pack a bag of this easy grain-free trail mix. It gets a ton of flavor from pumpkin spice, a little bit of sweetness from coconut sugar and dried cranberries, and plenty of healthy fats from a variety of nuts.

Per serving: 129 calories, 9.1 g fat (3 g saturated), 12.5 g carbs, 9.5 g sugar, 2.5 mg sodium, 1.3 g fiber, 2.2 g protein

6. Autumn Quinoa Pilaf With Wild Rice

This fiber-packed pilaf works as a light meatless main (we’d suggest tossing in some some baked tofu or chickpeas for extra protein and staying power), or as a side dish. The pilaf is great straight out of the slow cooker, but feta, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, and herb after everything is cooked really brings it to the next level.

Per serving: 236 calories, 8.3 g fat (3 g saturated), 32.3 g carbs, 3.4 g sugar, 292 mg sodium, 4.2 g fiber, 9.2 g protein

7. Beef Stew

Beef stew might not be what comes to mind when you think of healthy recipes, but the combination of protein, potatoes, and tons of veggies makes for a really well-balanced meal. Oh, and it’s delicious.

Per serving: 321 calories, 10 g fat (2 g saturated), 24 g carbs, 4 g sugar, 359 mg sodium, 4 g fiber, 30 g protein

8. Risotto with Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese

This risotto is made with whole grain brown rice and plenty of butternut squash, so it definitely covers your healthy carb needs. You can add a little protein by throwing an over-easy egg on top, or by serving it as a side dish alongside roast chicken.

Per serving: 195 calories, 7 g fat (3 g saturated), 26 g carbs, 3 g sugar, 412 mg sodium, 3 g fiber, 7 g protein

These sweet potatoes arejustdecadent enough. If you choose the right hot sauce and make your own ranch dressing, they’re also Whole30-compliant.

Per serving: 320 calories, 13 g fat (8 g saturated), 25 g carbs, 9 g sugar, 500 mg sodium, 3 g fiber, 24 g protein

This lightened-up version of a classic definitely deserves a spot on your next football party spread. Made with chicken instead of beef, heavy on the peppers and onions, and relatively light on the cheese—these are tasty but won’t weigh you down.

Per serving: 420 calories, 14 g fat (3 g saturated), 27 g carbs, 2 g sugar, 363 mg sodium, 3 g fiber, 40 g protein
