Gluten Free Crock Pot Salsa Chicken

Gluten Free Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken

One night recently I asked Alan what would be an interesting flavor for a chicken. We were low on groceries and when he opened the fridge he asked whether salsa would be good. I don’t know why I had never had such a delicious idea. I pulled together a few other things I had on hand and made the easiest tastiest chicken I have ever had come out of my crock pot. This chicken fell off the bones and had an amazing flavor. I thought the leftovers would be great as chicken tacos, but I had an even better idea for the leftovers. I grabbed my clean slow cooker and made this… gluten free easy chicken and sausage gumbo.

Coconut Flour Molasses Spice Muffins with Golden Raisins ~ Gluten Free Grain Free

Do you ever find yourself with an ingredient that you bought once a while back and never used again? Before we moved into our RV, I would just let those items hide out in the backs of cabinets and linger on top of the refrigerator. Sometimes those ingredients would get lucky and I would need them for a recipe before they expired, sometimes they ended up being tossed out during spring cleaning only having been used once. Our RV is only rated to hold 1483 pounds worth of “stuff”. When I began weighing out the items in my life, I realized just how much stuff I had. I was amazed to find I had around 35 pounds of weight just in flour and another 20 pounds in spices.

Paleo Brussels Sprouts Veggie Chips

Gluten Free Healthy Brussels Sprouts Chips

Recently I picked up a huge pile of brussels sprouts on the cheap.  I have been seeing recipes for kale chips posted everywhere and wondered if the tough outer brussels sprout leaves that would normally go to waste would lend themselves well to becoming a crispy snack. I quickly tossed them in some bacon grease and liberally coated them in kosher salt.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Paleo Oatmeal ~ Coconut Flour Recipe

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie Paleo Oatmeal

I bought a can of pumpkin to make the famous paleo pumpkin pancakes I had heard so much about. I tried them and for me they were way too eggy. I much prefer the two ingredient banana pancakes as far as texture and flavor. So I had most of a can of pumpkin left for experimentation. I was growing tired of eating my brownie batter paleo oats* after eating them 7 mornings in a row on our road trip. Don’t get me wrong they are delicious I was just finally on chocolate breakfast overkill.

World’s Best Iced Coffee Protein Powder Latte

World's Best Iced Coffee Protein Powder Latte

This gluten free girlfriend has been trying to get buff over the last few months. I have a lot of work to do and it is certainly an ongoing process. I have been eating a pretty high protein diet and supplementing it with protein shakes for muscle building. I don’t want to look like a bodybuilder  I am just aiming for not looking like a bowl of jello in a bikini. I have tried many flavors of protein powder many tasting awful. I have found that the Dymatize Elite Gourmet series is my favorite flavor wise. I really love the milk chocolate and that is what I buy most often.

Easy Apple Pie "Oatmeal" With Coconut Flour (Gluten Free, Sugar Free,Grain Free, Paleo)

My new favorite obsession is apples and cinnamon. I have been trying to eat even healthier and replace some of my sweets with fruit. Don’t get me wrong I still love chocolate but am trying to break my addiction to it. I have created this variation on my Copycat Coco Wheats to satisfy my breakfast sweet tooth. The use of coconut flour keeps this recipe lower carb and low calorie while being grain free and gluten free as well. Who doesn’t like apple pie for breakfast? If you want an even more decadent experience you could drizzle a bowl of this with honey or maple syrup and sprinkle some crushed almonds on top. Go ahead indulge your senses then tell me what your favorite hot breakfast cereal combo is. 🙂
