Paleo Chicken Soup

Fall is here and those those chilly nights are slowly creeping up on us. This is a perfect meal to throw in the crock pot & let simmer until dinner time. Super Easy (Just the way I like it).

If you can find a super clean stock then knock yourself out! If not this recipe for the stock is pretty simple. 

Chicken Stock Ingredients

1lb chicken parts (meat, skin, bones, whatever)

1 large onion

3-4 celery stalks

2 whole carrots

2 tbsp sea salt

3 whole cloves

2 tbsp garlic powder

6-8 cups cold water (depends on the size of your crock-pot)

Directions

1) Chop the onion, celery, and carrots into large chunks

2) Put the chicken pieces, onion, celery, carrot, salt and cloves into a large pot & add 6-8 cups of water.

3) Bring to a boil, reduce heat & let the stock simmer for an hour.

4) Remove chicken & vegetables & strain into a bowl.

Chicken Soup Ingredients

4-5 chicken breasts or meat from the actual bird (I’m Lazy)

5 whole carrots (chopped)

5-6 celery stalks

4-6 cups fresh Kale

1/2 one sweet onion minced

Directions

1) In a pan over medium heat & a little olive oil cook the chicken breasts & the minced sweet onion. Cut the chicken into sizes of your preference.

2) Cut the carrots & celery into about 1/2inch-1inch chunks and put them in the crock-pot.

3) Add all the chicken & onions to the crock-pot as well once cut.

4) Add the chicken stock to your liking (remember the Kale goes in last).

5) Stir 4-6 cups Kale into the crock-pot. It looks like a lot but it cooks down! Make sure the Kale is at least moist from the stock.

6) Once everything is in the crock-pot turn it on high & let that bad boy cook for about 4-5 hours or until the celery is soft.

Water refreshers to keep you hydrated.

  • Strawberry Orange
  • Cucumber
  • Lime & Mint
  • Pineapple Orange
  • Strawberry Lime

Many or the fruits in these have diuretic properties, such as limes & pineapple. So not only will you be re-hydrating your body you will also be helping it flush out toxins and help rid water weight caused by high carbohydrate & sodium rich foods.

Mint aids in digestion and soothes indigestion & inflammation.

You can add whatever you choose to these if you decide to make them.

The ones with whole fruit will last refrigerated for about 3-4 days. The ones with only lime or lemon will last a little longer.

To make sure they last as long as possible squeeze a little bit of lemon or lime juice in each of the jars, this will keep the fruit fresher longer.

Paleo Turkey Burgers & Sweet Potato Fries

Dinner never looked so sexy… haha no but really though.

Ingredients

1lb organic ground turkey breast (i like it lean)

1/2 cup chopped onion

2 tbsp relish

1 tbsp garlic powder

black pepper

sea salt

iceberg lettuce

tomato

avocado

1 sweet potato

olive oil

Sweet Potato Fries

Preheat Oven to 450F

1) Slice the sweet potato into “fry like” pieces, toss them in olive oil making sure to coat all of them.

2) place them on a baking rack and sprinkle them with sea salt and pepper, or whatever else you would like.

3) Bake at 450F for about 45 minutes but be sure to check on them because sometimes ovens hate people.

Burgers

1) In a bowl mix (with hands) 1lb ground turkey, 1/2 cup minced onion, 2 tbsp relish, 1tbsp garlic powder, black pepper, and sea salt.

2) Once thoroughly mixed make 4 individual “turkey balls” equal in size, flatten them to the size you prefer… but not too thick because the middle needs to cook.

3) Coat the bottom of the pan with olive oil & cook the patties over medium heat until the bottom is golden brown & the top is semi white… then flip.

4) Be sure the center is cooked all the way through by slicing the middle to get a better look.

5) Take them out. Top them with tomato, avocado, a slice of onion and wrap them in a leaf of lettuce & they’re good to go!

CAUTION: My lettuce wrapping skills are absolutely phenomenal & I can’t explain to you how or why. I was just born with a gift. DO NOT KILL YOURSELF OVER THIS STEP. It doesn’t need to look pretty, it just needs to taste good.

Today is officially the first day of the Paleo challenge (Lurong Living). I’ve already been pretty strict with paleo but i think Im going to modify it a little and cut the sugar a bit. That way I can get some numbers down and I can be that topless lifeguard for Halloween/my birthday ahahaha. Anyways I’ll probably be posting a bunch of shit seeing as this challenge is strict for 9 weeks. STAY TUNED FOR SOME GOOD SHIT LADIES & GENTS.

Deadlifts

These should definitely be a part of your workout regime at some point or another. If you don’t deadlift you’re missing a movement that will strengthen major muscles groups.

Muscles involved include: gluteus maximus, hamstrings, quads, abs, forearms, back and hips.  

Basically… DO SOME DAMN DEADLIFTS!

Chicken, Sweet Potato, & Kale Omelet

I ran out of protein this morning & had a mini heart attack after I realized I had 2 WOD’s to complete today with no post workout shake. I managed to get enough protein throughout the day though. Hopefully it takes the edge of these sore abs, I can’t even laugh without cringing. Tabata got the best of me yesterday!!!

I finally got my reebok Nano 2.0’s in. I used them for my first WOD of the day & I LOVE THEM!!!
