The slim girl's surprising secret weapon? A slow cooker. These healthy and delicious low-cal meals make healthy eating a snap, since leaner, less fatty cuts of meat still turn out tender in a slow cooker and you can get by with using less salt and oil because the flavors have time to meld together.

Chicken Quinoa Soup. Heat 2 teaspoons canola oil in a pot; cook 1 diced onion and 2 sliced carrots for 6 minutes. Add 1 pound thinly sliced boneless raw chicken thighs, 1 cup sliced mushrooms, 2 sliced celery stalks, and 2 minced garlic cloves; cook 5 minutes. Add 4 cups chicken broth, 1 cup water, 3/4 cup quinoa, 4 sprigs thyme, and salt and pepper. Boil, reduce heat, and simmer about 15 minutes, til quinoa is tender. Top with parsley and hot sauce.
