This is our favorite way to cook chicken breast in a Crock-Pot.
The flavors from the combination of the Pepperoncini, Ranch and Auj Jus is amazing. I seem to recall sharing this recipe here before. It belongs with the other chicken recipes in Food Porn July because this is an easy and tasty recipe for anyone on a low-carb or Keto diet.
I like to pair this fried cabbage:
If you can get over the black guy making the fried cabbage, this is actually another great recipe and combination with pulled chicken. I was introduced to it by my mother-in-law and found it a very useful side while doing Keto. As you may have noticed by now, I like spicy foods.
I’m happy to hear you are enjoying your Keto. It’s been a health miracle and that sounds delicious.
I know this is extreme but the end result is what everyone wants.
A lifetime devotee of good health, exercise and proper diet was Jack LaLanne (1914-2011). He walked the walk so to speak.
“LaLanne also gained recognition for his success as a bodybuilder, as well as for his prodigious feats of strength. Arnold Schwarzenegger once exclaimed “That Jack LaLanne’s an animal!” after a 54-year-old LaLanne beat then 21-year-old Schwarzenegger badly in an informal contest…”
…at age 15, he heard health food pioneer Paul Bragg give a talk on health and nutrition, focusing on the “evils of meat and sugar”. Bragg’s message had a powerful influence on LaLanne, who then changed his life and started focusing on his diet and exercise. In his own words, he was “born again”, and besides his new focus on nutrition, he began working out daily…
LaLanne blamed overly processed foods for many health problems. For most of his life, Jack was a vegetarian which included fish in his evening meal. In his later years, he appeared to advocate a mostly meatless diet which included fish, and took vitamin supplements.
He ate two meals a day and avoided snacks. His breakfast, after working out for two hours, consisted of hard-boiled egg whites, a cup of broth, oatmeal with soy milk, and seasonal fruit. For dinner, he and his wife typically ate raw vegetables, egg whites, and fish. He did not drink coffee.
LaLanne said his two simple rules of nutrition are “if man made it, don’t eat it” and “if it tastes good, spit it out”.
LaLanne died of respiratory failure due to pneumonia at his home on January 23, 2011. He was 96. According to his family, he had been sick for a week, but refused to see a doctor. They added that he had been performing his daily workout routine the day before his death.
LaLanne reportedly never ate any sugar after he was 15 years old. He claimed he had never missed a workout. He reportedly got a speeding ticket when he was 95 — I guess those young whippersnappers must have been too slow and he had to pass them…
Banned for life, that’s all well and good, but I want to enjoy life not just prolong its duration by eating like a rabbit.
The low carb food plan with the occasional cheat makes a happy compromise.
Jack lalanne is a pretty interesting character I use to be somewhat of a health nut when I was a seven day adventist still am to a certain degree but nothing like i use to be. I agree with him about overprocessed foods and most meats especially processed and red meats I use to be anti coffee as well but i’m back to drinking the stuff unfortunately
Looks like a good recipe hunter , i’ll have to make it one of these days
I’ve read that eating or drinking hot foods or liquids that were cooked or stored in plastic or foam containers can cause lower sperm count and lower testosterone levels. I don’t know if it’s true, but the claim is that certain chemicals within plastics that are harmful to men are released into food and drinks when heated.
