being that I am such a "foodie" I feel this is the right choice for me, at least temporarily. I definitely imagine that I will cut chicken out completely when I am ready. for now, I feel content with my decision :) I will continue to not eat red meat, which I excluded from my diet almost 2 years ago. I feel this is a good balance for now!
that being said! I was dying to try out this new recipe, so here it is. I got the idea from julie at peanut butter fingers
bbq pulled chicken sandwiches:
this was incredibly simple! I put two chicken breasts (local organic- yay me!) into a crock pot with veggie broth. I let them cook for 6 hours and then pulled the chicken apart with two forks. we tossed the chicken with bbq sauce and toasted a couple buns and there yah have it! simple and delicious! the crock pot is my new best friend! and my first corn on the cob of the season was fantastic!
also, I made some delicious muffins yesterday. check out the recipe- the strawberries kept them so moist and the combination of strawberry, banana and chocolate hit the spot! I love making muffins- so easy and a nice snack to have around the house.
in other news, forks over knives is a documentary I have been meaning to see. it emphasizes the importance of a plant based diet and looks incredibly interesting. can't wait to watch it :)
off to work!
