6. Creamy Polenta with Mushroom Sauce by Sharon Crayton

In the Abruzzi region of Italy, creamy cooked polenta is traditionally poured onto a board in the middle of the dinner table, then topped with tomato sauce and Parmigiano. Everyone digs right in! But you can serve it in a bowl to minimize cleanup.

Per serving: 338 calories, 2g fat, 51g carbohydrates, 7g protein, 8g fiber

7. Ribollita by Liana Krissoff

If you want an easy, main slow cooker dish, try this healthful source of fiber and protein — and it's vegetarian and dairy-free.

Per serving: 406 calories, 2g fat, 60g carbohydrates, 15g protein, 15g fiber

8. Pot Roast by Claudia Roden

With lots of vegetables, this pot roast recipe is full of potassium and vitamin C and has plenty of protein. Optional beef marrow bone gives this roast a thick, rich quality, but it's sure to please a craving for hearty food either way.

Per serving: 349 calories, 5g fat, 19g carbohydrates, 38g protein, 4g fiber

9. Caramelized Brown Betty by Andrew Schloss

Fall is the season of apple picking, and this is a divine dessert for fresh apples. Take out your slow cooker and let the delightful aromas of apple, cinnamon, vanilla and brown sugar fill the house as this brown betty cooks to perfection.

Per serving: 291 calories, 9g fat, 53g carbohydrates, 2g protein, 4g fiber

10. Delectable Apple-Cranberry Coconut Crisp by Judith Finlayson

Crisps are a decadent way of combining fall harvest favorites into heartwarming desserts. This seasonal dessert combines sweetness of apples and brown sugar with the tart touch of cranberries. It takes a few hours to bake, but it's well worth the wait.

Per serving: 256 calories, 5g fat, 45g carbohydrates, 2g protein, 3g fiber
