The beauty of a slow cooker is that you can prep everything in advance, it's cheap to run and after a busy day you can come back to a delicious home-cooked meal

But thanks to passionate foodie Nathan Anthony's new book, you can also enjoy healthy, easy-to-make, calorie-counted recipes to save you time and money, and make you feel better too. Here we share just three of his favourites.

Healthy Slow-Cooker Garlic Mac & Cheese

This is a simple, fuss-free way to make mac & cheese at home in one pot, saving time but never compromising on flavour.

Nathan Anthony's Slow-Cooker Thai Basil Beef

The flavour here is sensational, like a very rich satay. It's got to be one of my all-time favourite fakeaways.

Slow-Cooker Garlic Parmesan Chicken with Potatoes

I LOVE the combination of potatoes and garlic. Add some Cajun-spiced chicken thighs and a buttery Parmesan sauce and I'm in heaven with every bite.
