Slow Cooker Recipes

Slow cookers, also known as Crock-Pots, have been a big hit since the 1970’s. It is a countertop appliance that is used to simmer food at a reduced temperature for a longer period of time. Many people think of dishes like pot roast, pulled pork or soup when it comes to a slow cooker, but you can use it for much more – including cake! One note of caution: raw kidney beans and a few other beans (like broad beans or fava beans) contain the phytohemagglutinin toxin. Boiling destroys this toxin, but the far lower temperature of a slow cooker does not (read more at WikiPedia). Continue reading >>

A Nutritionist's Favorite Low-carb Bbq Chicken Recipe

A Nutritionist's Favorite Low-carb Bbq Chicken Recipe

It's perfect if you have diabetes or try to avoid sugar. Want to enjoy the finger-licking goodness of BBQ chicken, but not a fan of all that sugar in your favorite bottle of BBQ sauce? This sweet and zesty condiment makes almost any food better, but it’s also pretty sweet, and not in a good way. Some popular brands have more than 15 grams of sugar per serving! That means you may unknowingly consume way more sugar than you intended—and during a savory dinner, not even for dessert! (Here are more sneaky condiments to watch out for.) If you’re treating insulin resistance or following a diabetic diet, the sugar in BBQ sauce is something you need to pay attention to, since it can cause an unexpected blood sugar spike you might not be prepared for. In this episode of Diabetes Bites, nutritionist Fiorella DiCarlo, RD, whips up a diabetes-friendly BBQ chicken that uses a low-carb, homemade BBQ sauce that imitates the traditional grilling favorite with way less sugar. But actually, you won’t even need a grill: Fiorella makes this in a slow cooker, so you can enjoy this recipe all year round. This low-sugar BBQ chicken recipe uses dark meat like drumsticks or thighs since these are juicier. Although the chicken breast is usually recommended because it’s lower in fat, dark meat has tons of protein along with iron and vitamin B12. For people managing diabetes, increasing protein intake is beneficial since it helps you stay full while you’re cutting back on carbs. (Here are more foods nutritionists recommend to treat diabetes.) That said, you can totally swap in chicken breast if that’s your jam. Then round out your plate with some seasonal grilled vegetables, and you’ve got a perfect diabetes-friendly dinner.

Diabetic Slow Cooker: 151 Cozy, Comforting Recipes (diabetic Living) Paperback October 9, 2012

Diabetic Slow Cooker: 151 Cozy, Comforting Recipes (diabetic Living) Paperback October 9, 2012

I'm a diabetic using an exchanges diet to lose weight and control my Glucose. This book gave me everything I needed. The serving size, the nutritional numbers and exchanges. I've seen a number of diabetic cookbooks that don't give you everything you need. By the way, someone mentioned there are no serving sizes listed. Every recipe DOES show serving sizes. The nutritional values are usually near the bottom of the page, and the serving sizes are generally near the the top of the page. What I love about this book is that it's full of comfort food recipes, all of which have been reworked to fit our diets. I can't stand the thought of a piece of dry Chicken and a serving of Vegetables on my plate every night. This gives you everything from Pot Roast to Meatball sandwiches. My wife who isn't diabetic enjoys the dinners that this book makes possible also. The recipes almost always make 4 or more servings. That's okay with me. I measure everything out, and freeze the extra portions individually for later. Even reheated, these recipes taste better than any Lean cuisine or similar frozen dinner I've ever had. One caveat though. The exchanges they list are not always accurate. I've seen them list 28 grams of Carb as 1 carb exchange (that's almost 2 exchanges) and 10 grams of fat as 1 exchange (it's 2.) However, anyone who is following exchanges has to know how many grams makes up a serving. The grams are all listed, so I take that into consideration at mealtime, or adjust the recipe in advance to compensate. I was going to give it 4 stars because of that, but since all the info is there, I went with 5. I would recommend this to anyone, diabetic or not. But especially those of you like me, that can't say goodbye to certain foods. Continue reading >>

The Best Slow Cooker Chicken

The Best Slow Cooker Chicken

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary: For Julie's low carb chicken recipe, Every one tablespoon of paprika provides an ample amount of iron, vitamin A and E, which can aid in promoting healthy blood vessel function and prevent destruction of lipids. When combined with garlic powder or cayenne, it's a great healthy rub for proteins. More than culinary staple, onions contain natural sugar, vitamins A, B6, C and E and a good source of potassium, sodium, iron and folic acid. When possible, use the raw state of onions as it contains a variety of organic sulfur compounds that are partially destroyed by heat. By Nikki Nies, MS, Nutritionist The Best Slow Cooker Chicken 5 minutes 8 hours 6 whole organic chicken (about 4 pounds) Rinse chicken inside and out, and pat dry. Sprinkle generously with kosher salt, garlic powder, and paprika. Sprinkle lightly with Italian seasoning. Place onion slices on the bottom of the crock pot or slow cooker. Add chicken on top of the onions. Put garlic cloves (whole) into the crock pot. Pour broth around the chicken, enough to be about 2 inches deep. Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours.

This delicious slow cooked, skinny Santa Fe chicken can be dished over rice, tortillas or in a lettuce wrap for a healthy meal! How was your weekend? Did you have a nice, long and lazy one? Over here, it was a little slice of heaven. From last Thursday onward, you couldn’t find my hubby or I anywhere near our computers, phones or TV. It was all about chilling out and grilling out, and enjoying the good people, food and drinks around us! We watched friends’ backyard fireworks sparkle for the 4th, swam so much you’d think we had gills, and ate ourselves into a fat, happy coma. Total bliss! … And I intend on taking it slow as we ease back to the workin’ world this week. Le sigh. For days when you can’t be bothered, slow cooker meals are the perfect solution. They’re easy to whip up, ya got leftovers for days, and with the right ingredients, they can be made skinny enough to enjoy during swimsuit season!

You can also add reduced-fat cheddar cheese, plain fat-free yogurt or light sour cream, and add crushed tortilla chips for a crunchy, salty bite.

Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

If it was socially acceptable to hibernate all winter and watch Netflix all day I would. Especially if we had an unlimited supply of this healthy Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili. Give me a good book, my Insanity DVDs and a crock pot full of Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili and there’s a good chance I wouldn’t leave until March (or May if you live in Ohio!). The day I made this chili was the best day of the week. It’s hearty, zippy and feel-good, but healthy at the same time. And it’s bursting at the seams with comforting flavor. Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili for days! So how does this all come together, you ask? Easy! Throw it in the slow cooker. The only trick is to get out your blender and mix a cup of the chicken broth with the yogurt to get it blended together. If you just dump the yogurt in the pot it will be lumpy and won’t mix well. When you blend it with the stock it turns the yogurt into a smooth consistency that easily mixes with the rest of the soup. You’re going to be amazed how easy this is. You might even think you’re doing it wrong. But you’re not! And just so you can mentally prepare yourself, you will need a giant bowl or mug, all the delicious healthy toppings (because we love toppings), a ridiculously comfy couch and Netflix (obvi). Oh, and about 8 containers to meal prep and enjoy this addictingly healthy Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili for the rest of the week. Another great recipe with beans is our healthy and delicious one pot Black Bean Soup with Lime Salsa. Give both recipes a try and come back here to tell us which one you liked best!
