Rotisserie Chicken Can Be Healthy! My friend Nancy always chuckles when she asks “What’s in the crockpot today?” There is a 35% chance that the answer will be “rotisserie chicken.” It depends on the menu selection for the week, but I usually cook 2-4 rotisserie chickens a week! I am not talking about the prepared rotisserie chicken that you pick up in the grocery store or at COSCTCO. I have nothing against them except, if you have any food sensitivities, it is highly likely that you will have some reaction. The problem: they can tell you exactly what was in the vat when they prepped the chicken. For most Americans, this is not an issue but for those that have issue, it is a big problem! I have looked at rotisserie’s that you purchase. (Just take a look in the right sidebar and you will see a couple of my favorites.) I have reviewed countless number of recipes and methods but I keep coming back to one recipe: Healthy Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken. This is the easiest, simplest, healthiest, moistest, cost efficient rotisserie chicken! First the crockpot is set and forget! ( I love that!) Second, it takes me about 10 minutes in the morning to cut up some onion, celery and garlic and make the spice mix and prep the chickens. Third, in about 4-6 hours I have tender, tasty meat to eat as it or make a chicken dish. Fourth, I have enough leftovers to make dinner at least once if not two nights. Fifth, I reuse the crockpot that same night and make chicken broth. I know that everything I add can be eaten by food sensitive members of the family. You can view this healthy diet recipe at Healthy Crockpot Rotisserie Chicken. For more healthy diet recipes, go to Healthy Recipes page. After you try this recipe, please let me know what you think.

Love it or hate it, exercise is vital to healthy weight loss! We have been on this “healthy lifestyle” for five months! It is hard to believe! For the first time in fifteen years I have been able to lose weight! That certainlywasn’t the motivation behind this lifestyle change, but an encouraging benefit. My son has lost close to 50 pounds! He is looking great! But, he has beenhaving trouble getting started with exercise. In comes a young man who seesthe need and takes it upon himself to train our son. You would think that such an opportunity would be recognized and appreciated. Although he is not enthusiastic, he is responding by doing the workouts. Although he is very sore, I know that in 30 days he will see the benefits! (He wants to continue to lose weight and I know that exercise is vital to healthy weight loss.) His trainer asked if he could use my heart rate monitor. Exercise has been a part of my life since I was a kid. Back in the ‘olden days’ we played outdoors regularly and when I started school, I was in every sport offered to girls. Even after college, I still played tennis, raquetball and softball. When my kids were young, I used to swim a mile early in the morning. That was great exercise!There was a swim coach in town who put together different workouts which were great training. This was the first time I started using a heart rate monitor. It was great for increasing cardio training levels and helping me reach my fitness goals. My coach was instrumental in determing my target heart rate range. These heart rate monitors are fitness essentials that are extremely effective when it comes to providing you with the best results in the shortest period of time. Here is how you can use one: The beats per minute of your heart, or “heart rate” can be useful for guaging the intensity of a workout. Most heart rate monitoring devices allow you to set up at least one target heart rate zone. You can push it to be the best that you can be, all while in your target heart rate range. You decide what your heart rate will be for a given workout and then watch your monitor to make sure you reach it. It’s quite simple. Want to get faster? Train with higher heart rates to build speed. Want to go farther? Train with lower heart rates to develop endurance. Back to my story. I used a couple different heart rate monitors over a ten year period. My two favorite were Polar and Omron. The unit last for a long time but constant exposure to chlorine caused the chest strap to decompose. So naturally I looked at these two first when looking for a monitor for my son. I did a search at Amazon (my favorite place to shop) and here are the search results for ‘heart rate monitors’: Timex T5G971 Unisex Sports Personal Heart Rate Monitor Watch, Omron HR-100C … Continue reading
