    Instant Pot Recipes?

    I made this Peruvian Chicken Stew in the instant pot a few weeks ago and it was awesome! Here's the recipe:

    Looking for very simple chicken crockpot recipes

    I love cooking chicken in the crock pot! You can put chicken breast or thighs in the crock pot frozen, which helps cut back on time. You cook it on low for about 4-6 hours, depending on how much chicken you use. I've done a salsa chicken similar to what a previous commenter said, but just put in chicken breasts and a jar of salsa- that's it! You can mix it up by doing different kinds of salsa- there's a Hatch Green Chile salsa from Costco that works really well. You can also do shredded buffalo chicken- just chicken and compliant buffalo sauce. Or make your own buffalo sauce with ghee and hot sauce. I've also done a whole chicken in the crock pot. You just rub the chicken with garlic, salt, pepper and herbs. Cook on low for 6 hours.
  3. Breakfast: Bacon Spinach Quiche Lunch: Mexican Stir Fry Grocery list (for one, double amounts for two) Produce 1 onion 1 bell pepper 3 carrots 1 bag broccoli florets 1 bag of spinach 1 bag of cauliflower rice Protein 1 lb ground meat 1 package bacon (no added sugar for Whole30 approved) 10 eggs Staples you’ll need: Cooking fat Spices 1.5 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp paprika ½ tsp cumin ½ tsp chili powder ⅛ tsp cayenne 1 tsp salt Hot sauce to taste (optional) 1 tsp oregano Garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste for quiche and cauliflower rice Preheat oven to 350. Spray pan you are using for the quiche (you can use a pie pan, spring form pan, baking pan, even muffin tin! Just adjust cooking time accordingly). BACON: Roughly chop the bacon. Heat a large saute pan and cook bacon on medium high heat. While bacon is cooking, chop half of the onion. Remove bacon from pan onto plate with paper towels. Remove most of the bacon fat. QUICHE VEGGIES: Cook onion in same saute pan until translucent. Add spinach and cook until just wilted. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Mix with bacon pieces. Spread mixture on roasting pan. EGGS: Crack eggs into a separate bowl. Whisk with small amount of water or compliant almond milk, salt, and pepper. Pour over spinach and onion mixture in pan. Put in oven. Set a timer for 20 minutes.(don’t worry if it’s not preheated yet, it will be fine!) STIR FRY VEGGIES: Chop all veggies into bite-sized pieces. STIR FRY MEAT: Brown meat in a large saute pan (can use the same one as before) on medium high heat. Season with a little more than half of the seasoning mixture and optional hot sauce to taste. Remove from pan into separate bowl. STIR FRY VEGGIES: Add in onion, carrots, and bell pepper to same saute pan. Cook covered for about 3 minutes, then add in broccoli. Cook for about 5 more minutes, adding small amounts of water or cooking fat if needed and stirring often. Add in the rest of the seasoning mixture and optional hot sauce. CAULI RICE: While veggies are cooking, heat another saute pan with small amount of cooking fat. Add in cauliflower rice and cook on medium for about 5 minutes, stirring often. Season with garlic powder, salt, and oregano. When timer goes off for quiche, check to see if the eggs are set or if it needs more time.

    How much is too much - potatoes?

    I have very similar issues with IBS and too many veggies. I've found that a small amount of potatoes along with another root vegetable (like carrots, turnips, etc) is really helpful. I feel satiated but do not get into a carb coma from too many potatoes. You can chop up a bunch of root vegetables and potatoes and roast them all at the same time to make things easy!
