15 Healthy and Comforting Crockpot Soup, Stew, and Chili Recipes

Does the cold weather where you live have you craving some comfort food?

We’ve had some obnoxiously cold days in Philadelphia recently and while I’ve gone out to eat pretty often this past week, I’m really starting to miss some home cooking!  So what am I inspired to make this winter?  Soups, stews, and chilis!

Growing up, I wasn’t a fan of soup or chili…I always thought they were filling, but boring!  I guess I had too much of the canned stuff back then. Now that I’ve joined the blogging world (and Pinterest) and started cooking more at home, I’ve learned that there is so much creativity and so many healthy ways to enjoy these very hearty meals!

So I thought it would be great if I shared 15 different recipes for soup, chili, stews, and chowders that you can enjoy this winter.  Thanks so much to the healthy living bloggers that have contributed to this roundup! I’ve even got options for using your slow cooker or stovetop…if only I could create the way that they do!   I hope you enjoy these recipes!

I’m joining Ilka and Angela for the Fitness and Food linkup and  Annmarie, Nicole, Jen, and Michelle for Wild Workout Wednesday!
