Low fat slow cooker tips

One unfortunate thing about crock pots is that fat isn't drained away as it is cooked. If you are trying to cut fat from your diet for your weight loss program, there are ways you can trim those pesky fat calories first. And fortunately, most can be done quite easily or with minimum added prep time to add to your busy day. So here are ways you can turn your favorite crock pot recipes into low fat versions!

Are you using ground beef? Either use extra lean ground beef or pre-brown it so that you can drain fat away.

Carefully trim meats to cut away excess fat. This is easy to do with many cuts.

Change ingredients to low-fat versions. Most recipes won't be affected too much by switching out an ingredient for the low-fat version of the same ingredient.

Ramp up the veggies and cut down the meat. This is an easy way to cut your calories, not to mention making the dish healthier for everyone.
