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:

i got an HIIT & abs video comin' right up for you on my YouTube channel (fit foodie le) and blog! this ain't it 😜 but i sure did have fun gettin' silly with these two this morning💃💃💃 'Cherish your life, health, family, and friends. These are the things money can't buy and define your TRUE wealth.'👏 #simplethings #takenothingforgranted #fitmom #fitfoodiele #lovemeharder 💻www.fitfoodiele.com💻 yeah I'm just gonna take that money i was saving up for a nice grade ice cream maker and go buy more food😁. i was in the process of making 🍌🍫Toffee Chip Roasted Banana Ice Cream🍧 and i just might finish this whole bowl of soft serve before it makes it to the freezer. I LOVE MY NINJA👋💥 #NinjaBlender #roastedbananaicecream #dairyfree #yeahthisisgonnabegood #recipelaters #TBT our former client, Omonele, is a 👰wife, mom of 👫two kiddos, a 💉💊medical doctor, and was able to work her way from 39% bf down to 18% bf in a little under 12 weeks (two phases). ABS AFTER BABIES INDEED💪! But your fitness journey is so much more than about dropping pounds. Health, body confidence, the energy to keep up with your kids...it's all worth your time and efforts. I use Omonele's story and progress pics a lot when speaking with others interested in our program cause she knocked her goals out of the park, hectic schedule and all. We are all busy.  We all have something going on. But when you fight, adjust, and stick to a no - fail plan and make it work, results are inevitable and well deserved! What an inspiration to me and busy moms eveywhere she is! If you're a postpartum mom and have been cleared to work out, email me:  leah.egwuatu@6packusa.com and check out more of our male & female transformations here: @6packusa endorphins got me feelin' like that☝ after this morning's weight workout!  it's the end of January...are you still going? DONT STOP BECAUSE OF WHAT SOMEONE SAID. (quiet in the peanut gallery🙊) do this for YOU and use their words as motivation to keep pushing! if they thought you wouldn't last this long well show them you can by either picking it back up or keepin' on truckin'🚚! you might slow down but DO NOT🚫 STOP🚫. repeat after me: I WILL NOT BE IN THE SAME PLACE THIS TIME NEXT MONTH✊ #believeit #keepgoing #falloff #fallon #weeeeee #nohands🙌 #morningmotivation #fitfoodiele Mama had a 🔥hot date today! ok, the boys👬came too. ok, it was a play date😂. and i changed my mind and wore flats. (the older i get, comfort > style) AND, i was prepared and brought my meals with me✊👏! even though i was secretly hoping a pizza would be ordered🍕🍕🍕 @unvmt😚 #lol #ootd #HM #babyplaydate #mommylife the most awesomely awkward compliment ever😂😂😂😂😂 #how
