sweet slow cooker cornish hens + ‘Chopped’ suey

did anybody else catch the new ep of Chopped tonight!? i’m a huge fan of the show and while i thought one of the competitors, Lauren Von Der Pool ‘s performance was totally disrespectful yet comical, social media pretty much agreed and proceeded to rip her to shreds immediately the show aired :shock: . after watching i just had to google her name (apparently i wasn’t alone) and i’m just blown away yet again at the wrath of social media, my goodness.  it’s 2014 and words still hurt.  they always will.  i wish her much success and sincerely hope she takes away some valuable lessons from her Chopped experience.  anyway, i hope your #sundayfamilyfunday was pleasant!  i whipped out my crock pot this morning before church and threw this together:madewithOver-4

sweet slow cooker cornish hens

the stuff:

  • 3 whole cornish game hens
  • 1/4 cup liquid aminos
  • 1/2 cup light agave nectar
  • 2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Crystals (or coconut sugar)

do this:

  1. set slow cooker to 4hrs & 30 minutes on low
  2. place thawed birds in slow cooker
  3. coat birds in liquid aminos
  4. drizzle birds with light agave nectar
  5. sprinkle birds with cracked black pepper
  6. sprinkle birds with coconut crystals / sugar
  7. turn the birds every hour or so and coat them with the pan drippings to ensure it cooks evenly and is flavored evenly.


i was supposed to cook these guys for new years day but never got around to it.  they were served with turnip greens and a giant baked sweet potato topped with cinnamon and a tiny bit of Earth Balance Organic Whipped Buttery Spread. tip: spray your pot with no-stick cooking spray first; i forgot to do so.

my early am Lifetime classes are back on the schedule after a 2 week holiday break!  i’ll be hitting my new members and veterans with new moves, new music and a bigger bump :lol:

dirty oven, clean food😊. food for the next few days is all cooked and ready to go after some PM cardio tonight! 400 deg. for 45 min. 👊boom. lemon pepper on the brussels sprouts, Weber Sesame Ginger marinade mix on the chicken breasts (i used both fresh squeezed lemon and orange juice and let the chicken marinate while i was at the gym), and sweet potato chunks. usually i whip out my fry cutter and make them all pretty but sometimes it's all about getting it done! i coated them in no-stick cooking spray, then sprinkled cinnamon, garlic powder, and sea salt on them, das it.  going to bed after prepping my meals gives me the same feeling as going to bed with a sparkling clean house- i sleep so GOOD! 1 outta 2 will have to do for tonight tho😬 #fitfoodiele #@6packusa #stickingtotheplan IN 6 DAYS!!!!!! get ready for a 🎶FUN, effective workout safe for mom & baby along with healthy snacks (courtesy of @sproutsfm Katy💃) and plenty of info on having the healthiest pregnancy possible, moms💕! 👶👶👶👶👶👶👶👶👶👶👶👶👶👶👉SATURDAY, MAY 2ND @ 9:30AM👈
