Slow Cooker: Spicy 'Salsa' Chicken

February 11, 2013

I love my slow cooker. Throw a few ingredients in (most of which I already have in my kitchen) set the temp and come back for a feast in 7 hours. How easy is that? Slow cooker gives anyone with a excuse an answer on how to eat healthy, even if you are too busy.

I've seen a lot of salsa chicken recipes with just the ingredients of chicken and bottled salsa. Nothing wrong with that, I just prefer fresh and knowing exactly what is in my food. If you do want to take the bottle route, use one of the taller bottles of your favorite salsa. Or if you just have the smaller bottles in the house, add a few tomatoes in as well.

Chia Chocolate Pudding

February 08, 2013

Chia seeds are my new culinary obsession. I put these tasty little seeds in ground meat, yogurt, salads, and even desserts. What makes these seeds so special? These little guys pack a high fiber, high protein punch and contain Omega 3, the best kind of fat you can eat.

What makes these seeds even better? They taste amazing in chocolate! Turn your favorite desserts into super healthy treats.  Mine just happens to be pudding... :)

Chocolate Chia Pudding



Ingredients








  • 2 tbsp chia seeds (I lke Bob's)
  • 1/2 C  unsweetened almond milk(I like using Vanilla or Coconut)
  • 2 drops stevia (more if you like sweeter)
  • 1 tbsp raw cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla


  • Mix all the ingredients together.  Put some muscle into it; I find it takes a little bit of effort to gt that cocoa powder incorporated fully. After your mixture is mixed, cover your mixing bowl and let it sit for at least 20 minutes in the fridge. The chia seeds absorb liquid really well, so if you leave for longer you may have to add a bit more almond milk or water. You are left with a delicious and healthy pudding that can be eaten alone of topped with berries.
