“The Slow Cooker is your best friend for easy healthy eating,” says Tim Bauer, a marketing professional who successfully lost 200 pounds in 374 days and who blogs about his health and fitness journey at TinierTim.com. He suggests using it to prepare meals ahead of time so that you’ll have healthy options on hand without having to put in too much kitchen time. He also says that it’s a great way to prepare meals in bulk so that you’ll have leftovers that can easily be repurposed for on-the-go lunches.
