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:

Spiderman wanted #BerriPop🍧 for his birthday yesterday so we got some and played in the park afterwards. i challenged him to a pushup contest and next thing you know i look up and all these kids joined us outta nowhere lol 👬👬👬👬👬👬👬👬! kids are great imitators, so give them something great to imitate💪#AndYesHeSleptInThatSuitLastNight petty💁 #goodmorningalright hang in there, 🚀Rockets!!!!! watchin' the game and having this for dinner: baked sweet potato flake salmon, sautéed spinach & garlic, and roasted butternut squash pureé! i roasted the squash for 45 min on 400 until it was super soft, halved it, scooped out the seeds, cubed it, threw it into my Ninja along with some Walden Farms pancake syrup, cinnamon, and sea salt👌#dinna #goRockets #youcandoeeeeeeet 'mommy i'm really spiderman but Dego can just be my side kick.' HAPPY 4TH BIRTHDAY, CHISOOOOOOOO! #imeanspiderman #weloveyousomuch #May27th #waylatergram core from this morning when i had the gym to myself! don't forget to engage your core (pull your belly button into your spine) throughout the entire exercise. out of habit i sometimes mindlessly let go and just start going through the motions. when you feel that happening, pull that tummy in even tighter, take your time, and really focus on how you want that muscle you're working to look. helps me every time👌. i just put the boys to bed and Chiso was so excited cause when he wakes up he will be FOUR🎂!!!! #feelslikeChristmasEve ⭕#yogaball #obliques #core #fitmom #fitfoodiele
