99 Healthy Crock-Pot Recipes

Ahh, the crock-pot. For some, it’s just another kitchen tool collecting dust in a cabinet. For others, it’s a great way to make roasts or chili.

Do you have a crock-pot collecting dust in a cabinet? Or perhaps you bring out your slow cooker a few times a year to make the same ‘ole recipes: maybe a roast or a chili recipe you enjoy. Well, it’s time to liven things up!

Crock-pots and slow cookers are awesome tools in cooking. The long cooking times allow ingredients to really blend together, producing deep, savory flavors, while the hands-off approach means you have more time to focus on other things.

Plus, these handy kitchen appliances can be used to make healthy versions of your favorite dishes. From breakfast quinoa to pad thai, veggie enchiladas to Greek yogurt, you’ll truly be amazed at what a workhorse they are. And with all these recipes I’ve gathered up, it’ll make it easy to enjoy these healthy crock-pot recipes!

So dust off that crock-pot or slow cooker (or get a new top-rated crock-pot), or pull it out of the basement, and get to the kitchen to make some of the best-tasting, nutritious meals you’ve ever had.

Why relegate Mexican dishes to dinner when you can have them for breakfast, too? This casserole uses ingredients you likely have on hand for an easy morning meal. Use turkey or chicken sausage instead of pork, or leave it out completely to make this vegetarian-friendly.

Fresh spices and herbs like star anise, ginger, cinnamon and mint really stand out in this chicken version of the Vietnamese favorite — don’t skip ‘em! Sub coconut sugar for brown sugar and prep ahead to save even more time on busy days.

28. Vegetable Soup

If vegetable soup gives you flashbacks to the canned versions, it’s time to make a homemade version.

Chicken gets an autumn feel with the addition of applesauce and sweet potatoes. This is homey, healthy food at its best.


36. Chili Cilantro Lime Crock-Pot Chicken

This chicken has an extra step — it’ll marinate in a homemade sauce overnight — but the next morning, it’ll cook slowly with no added effort and the end result is worth it. The combo of a dry rub and marinade will leave you with a chicken that’s wonderfully moist and fall-off-the-bone good. This is great for burritos, sandwiches or anything else you need cooked chicken for.


37. Coconut Chicken

A little sweet and super tender, this coconut chicken is a breeze to make — you probably already have soy sauce, coconut milk and cloves! — and makes an excellent main dish. Just be sure to use coconut sugar in place of brown.


38. Garlic Lamb Roast

Perfect for Sunday lunch or supper, this leg of lamb soaks in the rosemary, black pepper, sea salt and garlic flavors it’s cooked in. Add your favorite veggies — like carrots, potatoes, onions or squash — to cook alongside it.

The #1 "bodyfat-eating" hormone...

weight loss solvedTo begin, I apologize for the dark nature of today's email.

However I promise what you'll discover today will be completely worth it.

Imagine a rotting corpse draped over your body from head to toe...

...suffocating tissue, restricting blood flow, damaging joints and infecting your healthy cells.

Shockingly, that nightmare is a reality for most:

64% of women and 74% of men carry too much body fat according to the National Institutes of Health.

It's choking their organs, assaulting their metabolism and sucking their energy dry.

But here's the worst part:

For most, this bodyfat has become "calorie-resistant":

It's completely unaffected by even the strictest diets... and most intense exercises.

This zombie fat is essentially... "dead tissue".

That's important for those who have 10, 25 or 50 or more pounds to lose...

AND for those who aren't technically overweight, but have what's called "pocket obesity"...

...unsightly patches of fat that cling to specific places, like:

just above your hips, lower belly, where your butt and legs meet... and even arms, neck and face.

However, there's good news:

Obesity researchers have now discovered a "metabolic jumper cable":

It jolts dead bodyfat back to life.

This allows your metabolism to burn it as calories and re-energize your entire body.

First though, here's the #1 reason why bodyfat becomes calorie-resistant:

It lacks blood flow. This has 3 effects:

  1. Not enough oxygen or nutrients reach fat cells, so they become unresponsive..
  2. Released fat can't be sent to other tissues to be burned, so fat cells suck it back in...
  3. 3) Metabolic hormones carrying the "burn calories" message don't reach the fat cell...

All this means one thing:

Your body can't transform into energy, the 135,000+ of calories the average person stores as fat!

You become a metabolic zombie: NO energy to think. NO energy to move. NO energy to motivate.

Update: calorie-resistant bodyfat can be now removed...

The discovery of this "metabolic jumper cable" can now reverse this process:

  • It wakes up un-responsive bodyfat with a powerful calorie-burning hormonal jolt....
  • It pops open fat cells, sucks out the fat, sending it off before its yanked back in...
  • It shuttles fat to your brain, heart, lungs, kidneys - even your bones - to be burned as energy.

Not only do those layers of "zombie fat" start coming off, but your entire body just works better.

Plus, as your whole body burns more calories, those patches of pocket obesity whittle away.

This "metabolic jumper cable" isn't any exercise, machine or pill.

It's a little-known, calorie-burning hormone we all have... just waiting for the right spark to come alive.

It's not thyroid, leptin, ghrelin, insulin, adiponectin, HGH or any other "fat loss" hormone you may know.

And on this next page, you'll find out precisely how to unleash its calorie-burning power:

==> How to Activate Your #1 "Bodyfat-Eating" Hormone...

How to Activate Your #1 "Bodyfat-Eating" Hormone

PS - Studies show that not only can healthy levels of this powerful calorie-burning hormone devour bodyfat and fortify soft muscle, but it can also reduce your risk of diabetes by 53.7%, a heart attack by 83.3% and stroke by 51.4%. Here's more of the scientific proof...


How to Wipe Out Chronic Inflammation (Free Book)

inflammation

In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.

See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.

Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.

inflammation book

Fortunately, newer research shows you can prevent-even reverse-most major diseases by "turning off" inflammation. And in our new book, we show you how to do just that.

The 5 Most Dangerous Lies You’ve Been Told About Bread

breads-email-small

Is Bread Really the Staff of Life… or the Stuff of Disease?

For most us, there are few foods more comforting than bread.

Fluffy biscuits, crusty baguettes, flaky croissants… even a simple slice of toast topped with melted butter can taste like heaven.

And that smell… few scents are quite as pleasant as fresh bread baking in the oven.

But there is a lot of confusion as to where bread fits into a healthy diet.

The Bible practically commands followers to eat it: “Give us this day our daily bread…” The government put it at the base of the food pyramid. And for centuries, it has been called “the staff of life.”

Of course, there are some who disagree…

Well-known cardiologist, Dr. William Davis, calls wheat “the perfect chronic poison.”

And for a poison, we sure eat lots of it…

The average American consumes 55 pounds of wheat flour every year, making refined flour the #1 source of calories in the American Diet – a situation that nutrition expert Chris Kresser describes as, “a public health catastrophe.”

So, what is the truth about bread and wheat?

  • Is it the perfect poison… or an essential daily food?
  • Is “gluten-free” bread better for you than regular bread?
  • And can you still eat bread… while maintaining a lean body and optimal health?

The answers to these questions may surprise you!

The 5 dangerous lies about bread…

Be sure to read #5 – the biggest surprise of all!


Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?

Weight-Loss-Tips

Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.

Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.

Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.

Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Because a single day of enjoying Liz’ smoothies demonstrated the radical power of her superfood-packed red smoothies to make me feel incredibly good.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.

You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.

Here’s how it works.

“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”

“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”

Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.

Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.

“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…

What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?

Mind blown.

Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”

So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.

Watch Liz’ free presentation. It’s packed with revolutionary weight loss information—information that works. Because it’s based on how nature.
