It’s time to get creative with MODIFICATIONS
I work in an office of many women. Beyond the conversation of clothes, kids, and houses we spend a lot of time talking about food. In fact it is not uncommon for a mass email about a new receipe to be sent around the office weekly. As the only paleo eater in my office I want to take part in this receipe sharing and experimenting but in order to do so I need to find a way to make some modifications. Guess what? They tend to be easy!
This was the receipe shared in my office today-easy slow cooker chicken:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup salsa (modify if desired)
1 package taco seasoning
1 can cream of mushroom soup (modify if desired see below)
½ cup sour cream(modify if desired see below)
Add chicken to slow cooker
Sprinkle taco seasoning over chicken
Pour salsa and soup over chicken
Cook on low for 4-6 hours
Remove from heat and stir in sour cream
Serve with rice.(modify if desired see below)
How to modify this?
1 cup salsa : make your own:dice tomato, cilantro, and onion, season to taste
½ coup sour cream: replace with cold coconut milk with a few drops of lemon
1 can of cream of musroom soup: replace by making a version of your own by sautéed diced mushrooms in oil, stirring almond flour right into them, and gradually adding nut milk to consistency
Serve over rice: replace with sautéed broccoli, or veggies of your choice!
