Crock Pot Remoulliage – Double Portion Chicken Broth

I’ve written about how I make chicken broth in my crock pot before. Making chicken broth in a crock pot is extremely easy and it gives you the chance to use every bit of that whole chicken that you purchased.Broth, bone broth, stock whatever you want to call it is very nutritious. This is why so many people turn to soup when they are sick; it’s packed full of nutrients that are easily absorbed by the body. It’s also full of gelatin which aids in digestion and strengthens the gut. As I mentioned above, I’ve been making crock pot...

Sugar Free Cranberry Sauce

Everyone has that one dish that they are in charge of making for holiday get-togethers. On Thanksgiving, I am in charge of the cranberry sauce. The last time I made it, I made it the usual way: in other words, with a ton of sugar. This year, as we have gotten healthier I decided to make cranberry sauce a bit healthier.

This recipe turned out great, which is pretty amazing as my husband...

Crock Pot Chicken Broth

There’s a reason why chicken soup is called “Jewish Penicillin”. It’s because of how nutritious broth is! Broth contains many minerals and in a form that is easier for the body to absorb. There’s also gelatin. Gelatin acts like a poor man’s protein because while it isn’t a complete protein is serves as just enough to help those who could not afford meat survive. I hope everyone can now afford meat in this day and age but if you can’t or if you want to save some money then broth is a great way to get some of that...

There’s also the fact that  canned is obviously not as nutritious as fresh because it’s been processed. The good news is that homemade pumpkin puree is actually...

Berry Chia Jam

I’m quite a fan of chia seeds. With all their fiber, iron, omega-3’s, and antioxidants, who wouldn’t love chia seeds? We use chia seeds in smoothies all the time and I tend to throw them in pretty much anything that I am cooking. Then one day, I stumbled upon chia seed jam. It’s supposed to be jam but chia seeds just don’t do quite the job that pectin can do. Therefore it’s more of a spread but I see that as no problem. I mean jam, preserves, or spread it can all be put on a piece of toast...
