Crock-Pot food is the ultimate soul food, because no one actually likes slaving away in a kitchen for hours to make a delicious, filling meal.

Slow cookers do all of the work for you, and—pro tip—they make your home smell amazing while they do it.

And, contrary to popular comfort-food belief, Crock-Pots can help you eat clean. Here are eight fabulous, clean-eating Crock-Pot recipes that will save you time and calories.

1. Crockpot Honey Pork And Apples

One Pinterest user said this dish “tastes like meaty French toast,” and how can you go wrong with that? And it only requires four ingredients: pork tenderloin, granny smith apples, honey and cinnamon.

The woman behind the recipe, Stephanie at Stock Piling Moms, suggests serving it with roasted asparagus. Get the pork recipe here and the asparagus recipe here.

4. Spicy Turkey Chili

This spicy turkey chili is great for those of you who love chili with a kick. But if you prefer milder chili or just can’t take spicy food, then just omit or decrease the amount of jalapenos and cayenne pepper in the recipe. It’ll still be delicious—and healthy.
