So I am about 16 weeks pregnant and still craving all things carbohydrate these days.
Much to my dismay this little baby does Not like lettuce. AT ALL.
That means a huge shift in my menus and finding ways to trick my body into eating vegetables without noticing it.
One of the easiest ways I have found is to mix them into food that just seems warm and heavy and delicious. And if it happens to be super simple to make- all the better!!!
This recipe is just that.
Put 2-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts in the slow cooker
Open up a can of black beans (try not to break off the tab because a can like this does NOT like can openers….)yay for me.
Once you finally get into those beans drain and rinse them and pour them into the slow cooker with the chicken and 1 container of your favorite salsa. I prefer to use fresh pico de gallo with chunks of fresh veggies, but you can use any kind you like.
Close the slow cooker, (plug it in…this step is important…and yes I have forgotten once or 5 times)
turn it on low for 4-6 hours stir it up to shred the chicken and enjoy!
You can eat this on its own, serve over some brown rice or in shells as tacos and top as desired with fresh cilantro and a dollup of greek yogurt. Yum and so so soooooo simple!
Your welcome for this one!
