Slow Cooker Coconut Chicken Curry ( Gluten & Dairy-free) 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Breaking out the trusted slow cooker is a ritual that makes me tingly all over. Cozy nights filled with nourishing, hearty dishes are the best way to to survive and thrive through the winter. Since this tends to be a hectic time of year, the convenience of cooking once and eating two or three (or four) times is not just helpful, it's downright necessary. Save yourself from succumbing to the take-out routine and make some curry instead.

I absolutely love this dish because it is delicious and nutritious. There are so many health benefits in here I don't even know where to begin. This curry contains a nice dose of Turmeric, which is a natural anti-inflammatoy and has been linked to improved cognitive function. The coconut oil and coconut milk are great sources of healthy fats. You'll get a heaping helping of protein from the chicken and almonds, plus the cleansing benefits of cilantro. Yum.


Ingredients:
3 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken
6 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 red onion, chopped
2 red peppers, chopped
2 tsp. fresh ginger, grated
1 Anaheim chili, diced (seeds removed)
1 cup of full fat coconut milk
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 tbsp. tomato paste
1 cup bone broth (Low sodium)
2 tbsp. Turmeric
1 tbsp. cumin
2 tsp. chili powder
4 tbsp. Garam Masala
Fresh Parsley for garnish (chopped)
Toasted, slivered almonds for garnish
Salt + pepper to taste


Directions:
Add all ingredients except chicken to your slow cooker and give it a good stir to combine all the flavors.
Add chicken and spoon the sauce over it. Make sure everything is equally distributed throughout the pot
Cook on high for 4 hours.
Serve it up, top with parsley and almonds (this is great over cauliflower rice).
Enjoy!

Strong Core and Quads!

By strengthening the Quadriceps (the largest muscle in the body) we can build lean muscle mass thus helping to increase metabolism and of course they will look good enough for short shorts!!....

Recipe
Fresh Cherry Crisp
Category: Desserts
Description: What says summer more than cherries?
This is a delicious cherry crisp made with fresh cherries instead of canned. It may take a little longer to make because you need to pit the cherries, but it is well worth it when you taste the finished product.

The nutritional benefits of cherries are pretty big, particularly when you consider their small size. Many of the health benefits of cherries are related to the natural chemical that gives them their color.

Anthocyanins give flowers, berries and other fruits the colors ranging from red to blue. Some of the best food sources of anthocyanins are red grapes, chokeberry, eggplant and, of course, cherries.
These pigments attract pollinators, act as a “sunscreen” and protect the plant from radicals formed by UV light, so they act as antioxidants. The antioxidant benefits are transferred to people when the fruits or vegetables are eaten.

Anthocyanins are also natural pain relievers and anti-inflammatories. They inhibit the production of COX-2 enzymes, as do over the counter and prescription pain relievers. Natural anti-inflammatories are believed to reduce the risk of many types of cancer. But, there are more nutritional benefits of cherries.

Cherries contain melatonin, another natural pain reliever and COX-2 inhibitor. Melatonin also helps to regulate sleep cycles and has been sold as a natural sleep aid. Reduced levels of melatonin have been associated with heart disease and increased cancer rates in night workers. The human body naturally produces melatonin, but primarily in darkness.
Constant artificial lighting present in most homes and work places reduces the amount of melatonin that the body produces. So, one of the health benefits of cherries to modern day man has to do with replacing some of the melatonin that has been lost to artificial light, unhealthy work schedules and unnatural sleep patterns. And, there are more nutritional benefits of cherries.

Cherries, like most fruits, contain vitamin C. The proven and suspected health benefits of cherries and other vitamin C rich foods are too numerous to be covered in this recipe.
