Crock your way to deliciously healthy eating!


Italian style roast. See recipe below.

You don’t have to be a good cook or spend a lot of time in the kitchen to prepare an abundance of healthy, delicious meals. Just find a simple way on how and what to do. Let's take a crock pot, for example. It has become an integral appliance in today's kitchens.

As you probably already know, you simply place the ingredients in the crock pot, plug it in, and turn it on. This leaves you to spend the day as you like, knowing that you'll return to a delicious homemade meal ready and waiting for you.

Imagine entering your home and being greeted by the inviting smells wafting from a crock pot... It's like having your own private chef cooking away while you go about your day! How convenient! :)

You can prep in advance several kinds of dishes you want to have for the next few weeks, freeze them, and warm them up as you go.

If you like experimenting, go ahead and put in whatever you like. For example, you can make a jambalaya-style chili.

Jambalaya-style chili. Made by the
very fit and healthy Russell Steele. :)
Using some fresh and some canned ingredients, it’s a snap to throw together and will keep you craving it for days. Extra lean ground turkey, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, chopped garlic, onions, red, green and yellow bell peppers, kidney beans, pinto beans, fresh green onions, salt, pepper and even some chili powder to spice it up.

Eat with some brown rice, or heck, just throw the brown rice in the crock pot, too! Sprinkle a little cheddar cheese on top and ta-daa!! Buon appetito! :)
