Slow Cooker Roast Pork with Vegetables

Healthy Crockpot Recipes
Many slow cooker recipes are full of sodium and fat because of ingredients typically used, including condensed soups and canned ingredients. These slow cooker recipes are nutrient dense, low fat, and low sodium
This delicious one dish slow cooker recipe combines a pork sirloin roast with lots of vegetables, seasoned with allspice and apple butter.
Prep Time: :25
Cook Time: 9 hours

There are things you can do to update regular slow cooker recipes, of course. Try refrigerating canned broths before using them. The fat will congeal in a layer on top of the broth so it can be removed before you add the broth to the slow cooker. Look for low sodium and low fat ingredients. Trim fat and skin from meats before cooking. Try vegetarian recipes once a week. And any recipe that uses a lot of fresh vegetables will be healthier than one with canned this and that.

SASS**As this got 3 of 5 stars, I would add more herbs or spices that you like. Would be better. Also using low fat or sugarfree ingredients will pick up the "Healthy" aspect.
