As the weather starts to cool down and fall officially starts, we are beginning to break out the slow cookers and make the switch toward hearty comfort foods. While mac and cheese and meatloaf are amazing recipes to enjoy during the fall months, these can be full of carbs and end up leaving you less than satisfied. You don’t have to give up your favorite foods or the ease to have a healthy dinner during the fall months! I promise these are just as easy as whipping up a batch of homemade mac and cheese. Here are 15 quick and easy healthy fall dinners that you can make for your family this fall.

One of the things I love about these recipes is that many are slow cooker or Instant Pot recipes, which easily saves you time. I try to use my slow cooker and my Instant Pot once a week. I also love that these meals encompass so many great fall flavors and fresh fall produce like kale and apples. My CSA is full of great produce this time of year and I love recipes that help me get the most out of my CSA. Fall is my favorite time of year, but there is always so much to do. So I hope that these quick and healthy fall recipes help you have more time to enjoy your family and less time wondering what’s for dinner.
