The Healthy Slow Cooker
Delicious, nutritious eating made easy
By Dannii Martin
100 mouth-watering slow cooker recipes to help you eat healthily, lose weight and save time
For many people, the downside of eating healthily is the thought of having to spend hours preparing and cooking meals. This inspirational, full-colour recipe book shows how a slow cooker can enable you to have a very healthy, home-cooked diet with just a few minutes spent in the kitchen.
Author Dannii Martin reveals how her slow cooker changed her life. She ditched her fast food and ready meals habit and learned to cook from scratch, transforming herself from an unhealthy student into a healthy young mum and losing seven stone along the way.
The Healthy Slow Cooker includes 100 recipes, each with a colour photo, and indicates clearly how long each recipe will take to cook for easy planning. You'll find:
· Sustaining breakfasts such as Superfood Porridge, and Dark Chocolate and Cherry Granola
· Healthy meat, fish and vegetarian main meals, including Vietnamese-style Chicken with Pak Choi, Sesame Beef with Broccoli, Lemon and Chive Salmon and Leafy Green Madras
· Tasty side dishes such as Baba Ganoush and Salsa
· Desserts and drinks including Apple and Pear Crumble and Apple Chai Latte
The book also includes healthy options of some popular 'comfort' dishes, together with tips for choosing your slow cooker and how to get the most out of it.
Dannii Martin is the author of healthy eating and lifestyle blog Hungry Healthy Happy, which provides healthier alternatives to everyone's favourite meals, that don't sacrifice on taste. Dannii's down-to-earth approach and simple recipes provide inspiration to a growing audience of over 200,000 followers and she is consistently ranked as one of the UK's most influential bloggers.
As a mother to a toddler, Dannii knows how easy it can be to turn to convenience food, which is why she relies on her slow cooker to provide easy and healthy meals for her family that involve very little preparation.
After a health scare a few years ago, Dannii turned her life around with a total change of diet and exercise routine and her slow cooker featured heavily within that. Using the slow cooker to make family meals meant she had more time to dedicate to getting fit.
