Crock Pot Recipe + A Week in Fitness

Oh Sunday. How I love you.

The parents came down this afternoon for a late lunch at Another Broken Egg Cafe as well as NFL and Jim ‘N’ Nicks’ baby back ribs.

I love this particular brand of medicines! Buy cheapest levitra. For a man with ED, a harder erection can lead to a more satisfying sexual experience. When it comes to hardness, this can help.

Oh yeah, and for me.

Before I share the recipe I mentioned to you all last night, I’m going to share what I’ve been up to this week – fitness wise.

Week in Fitness 1/14-1/20

Monday – CrossFit

Tuesday – 5 mile run

Wednesday – CrossFit

Thursday – 3 mile run with Mom

Friday – Off

Saturday – 7 mile run

Sunday – Restorative Yoga @ Yoga Bliss

Not going to lie, I’m pretty proud of my schedule this past week and I think I just might keep it around for a while. CrossFit and running left me sore each time but switching things up allowed me to be able to incorporate everything I wanted to do in the week. A little tricking of the body and I may even be able to add in some more yoga and CrossFit. We’ll just have to see how the upcoming week turns out.

Ok ok. Recipe time!

Now, get out your crock pot and pour a nice layer of salsa on the bottom.

And if you’re still sleepy like I was and forgot all about the kale, throw it on top and then pour over chicken broth.

Cook on low for 2 hours and then shred chicken using two forks. Continuing cooking another 6 hours and then say hello to this:

And a house that smells drool worthy.

While this is awesome on its own, it’s even better with wild rice + quinoa.

Apologies for the poor picture quality. I was hungry!

Rice cookers = lifesavers. Serious. Invest in one.

Don’t forget to garnish with cilantro and a dollop of plain Greek yogurt (or sour cream).

Perfect hearty meal for a cold winter night.

The best part about this recipe – besides the fact that it’s zero hassle and tastes oh so good – is the endless ways to use leftovers! On a sandwich, enchiladas, in a salad…

Oh the possibilities!

Make this. Really. It freezes well, too, so you have no excuse not to make it.

Here’s to the end of a great week and many more to come!
