“Fix and Forget About It” 21 Day Fix Chicken – YUM!

I just love my crock pot.  I mean I really, really love it.  It truly makes clean eating so simple.  And, I just hate to cook.  So I like to prep the ingredients, plug in the machine, and then basically walk away.

I came across this recipe some time ago and thought I would share with you.

I am calling it:Easy Crockpot Chicken - 21 Day Fix

“Fix and Forget About It” 21 Day Fix Chicken

Ingredients:
3-4 chicken breasts
4 cloves of pressed garlic
2 tsp of chili powder
2 tsp cumin
1 Tbsp. cilantro
4 bell peppers, any color (sliced)
1 large onion (sliced)
1 14 oz can of diced tomatoes (use a low sodium version or check out this easy recipe for stewed tomatoes)

Instructions:
Put all ingredients in the crock pot and cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-6 hours.

If your time will allow it, add the bell peppers to the slow cooker in the last hour so they aren’t too soggy.

When the cooking time is over, shred chicken with a fork.

To Serve:

Place 1 Red container of the chicken mixed with tomatoes and garlic onto a 1 Yellow whole wheat flour tortilla. Top with 1 Green container of sliced peppers and onion.

Optionally serve with 1 Tbsp. of Non-fat Greek yogurt or a Blue container of shredded cheese.

Your new you resolution tips…Happy new year! So what are you going to do with it?

Happy New Year!

OK, so now what?

I love a New Year.  I didn’t always.  I looked up it with dread because of all the things I failed to do in the year before.  But, not anymore.

You see, I have dedicated the New Year to a day of planning and goal setting.  I would look at the past year in review and decide what some of my top goals should be for the coming one. Then I chart it all out on a yearly calendar and then monthly.  At the end of each month, I take a look at my larger yearly goals and determine what next steps for the month should be to get me to them.  Then each Sunday night, I take a look at my monthly goals and determine what I need to do this week to get me to my monthly goals.  You see, I break it all down from he large to the very small.  And, then my year becomes manageable.

I use this day planner design to help me chart everything I need to do.  Find what works and use it.

So, if you haven’t settled on your top goals for the year, take some time today or this weekend coming.  Writing down your goals in specific terms…SMART (specific, measurable, assignable, realistic and time-related)   means you’re more likely to achieve them.

And, we want you to achieve them, right?

Happy 2015!!
