After reading The Fat Fallacy, I am changing my eating and going radical--full fat dairy, good oils and nuts...done the French way, no more worrying about low-carb, low-fat. Pseudo-foods are out!

add all ingredients except bacon and parsley to the slow cooker and cook on low for 6 hours. Just before serving add the parsley to the slow cooker and stir to combine. Brown bacon and crumble on top of the dish. Serve with slices of french bread in the dish to soak up the liquid.

My version of a classic French Province meal, easy and healthy as well. Low salt and low in fat.
And the best part is it is in a slow cooker. This of course can be made on a pot, on stove top or dutch oven in range.
