The only good thing about cooler weather? THE CROCK POT! What's in yours?



Recommended Posts

I am super busy this time of year (as is everyone) with school activities and my business, and the shorter days seem to really make me feel the crunch. Plus, the chillier it gets, the more I want to snuggle on the couch with my pup and a trashy novel. My family still wants to eat, so it's time to pull out the crock pot!

The more elaborate the meal, the more prep I do at night. Today's recipe is seriously an open and dump but a family favorite:

3-4 chicken breasts
2 cans pinto Beans rinsed
1 jar of your favorite salsa
1 can of Rotel
1 can of corn drained.
Dump it all in and cook on low 8-10 hours. Shred chicken with two forks.
Serve with chopped onion, sour cream, cheese, chopped avocado and chips as toppings. SUPER easy and low carb friendly!

Groatmeal for me!

http://www.theyummylife.com/Slow_Cooker_Oat_Groats

I live alone, so I use my small crock pot and make 4-5 servings. Groatmeal keeps well in the fridge. I just portion out mine into a little tupperware container each morning, add a splash of cashew milk and some PB2 and take it to work. Heat it up, add some toasted nuts, and you get a delicious, filling, Breakfast with Protein and Fiber.< /p>

Disclaimer: this is what I eat in maintenance. When in weight loss mode, I did not and do not eat grains of any kind, ever, and don't recommend them for weight loss.

My particular recipe for groatmeal is a little simpler than what the link will take you to. I don't use fruit or sweetener -- I actually like my groatmeal more on the savory side. My recipe is 2/3 c. oat groats, 1 c. Water, 1 c. unsweetened vanilla cashew milk, and 1/2 t. salt. Cook on low overnight. That's it!

This looks great.

I need to check on the pinto Beans though. I took a nutrition class at our county extensions office and was told not to make pinto beans in the crockpot. It may just apply to dried pinto beans so I need to check.

Edited to add:

I think I found an answer to my question. I assume canned pinto beans have been pre-cooked.

Otherwise, if you use dried beans, read this: http://www.choosingvoluntarysimplicity.com/crockpots-slow-cooking-dried-beans-phytohaemagglutinin/ before cooking dried beans in the slow cooker, especially pinto beans.

That sounds yum!! I wish I loved oatmeal because I know it's good for you.

That looks and sounds amazing! I need to try it for sure.

Yes. Canned. Literally a five minute put together.

I don't crock pot...

I have a countertop pressure cooker. I live for it in the winter months.

I can knock out a pot roast in 30 minutes, veggies included. Same with a roasted chicken, beef stew, you name it.

Another great thing about it-

I can toss frozen chicken breasts, frozen veggies, quartered potatoes or dry rice, some liquid, seasonings, and have a one pot savory meal in under 30 minutes.

Fast, rib-sticking, growing boy kind of food (for my boys! Girl doesn't do chicken!)

Yesterday was chicken, mushroom, chicken broth, high protien milk, parsley, coriander, onion, ham (added because my 6yr old insisted) cheese added at the end. So yummy! I pressure cooked this. I was cleared for small amounts of soft food yesterday and the chicken feel apart with my fork. Rest of the family added Pasta.

Today I'm slow cooking lamb shanks in a Tomato curry. Hubby will cook rice for everyone else and I'll probably have a Protein shake :-) lamb is not cleared on my soft diet only chicken and fish.

I love my pressure/slow cooker saves massive amounts of time! But it's spring in Australia so it's starting to get to hot.

Seriously the best pot roast ever. No searing needed, use at least a four pound roast or it's too salty and three pepperonicinis is the perfect amount.http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/recipe/mississippi-roast-robin-chapman-36577072

Looks like there is no liquid added at all. Am I correct?

Do you Brown the beef before putting in the crock pot?

This is super simple... because I am all about 3-4 ingredients and very little prep time... 4 frozen chicken breast, large verde enchilada sauce, diced up plabano peppers... cook all day.... the chicken falls apart and I use it for tacos, over rice for kids... or just eat it plain for myself.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
