- 2-3 peeled & sliced parsnips (can substitute with potatoes)
- 2-3 peeled & sliced carrots
- 1 white onion diced
- 1/2 cup filtered water
- 3 shallots peeled (optional)
- 1 carton of sliced baby Bella mushrooms
- 2-3 lbs chuck roast
- 3-4 rosemary sprigs
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 2 Tbs olive oil or avocado oil
- Place parsnips, carrots, onion, and water into crock-pot. Turn crock-pot onto low heat.
- Season chuck roast with salt, pepper, and rosemary.
- Place oil into medium-large size iron skillet. Heat over medium to high heat until the oil “dances.”
- Sear all sides of chuck roast. If you have extra rosemary sprigs you can saute them in the pan. Saute shallots & mushrooms for 3-5 minutes.
- Place chuck roast, shallots, and mushrooms into the crock-pot. Cook over low heat for 8-10 hours.
- Pot roast is ready to eat when it easily falls apart with a fork. If it’s not falling apart with a fork, cook it for an additional hour and recheck it again.
- The type of pot roast you buy is important. You want to look for a chuck, brisket, or round roast. They each contain enough connective tissues that will slowly break down into collagen, tenderizing the beef and flavoring the veggies as they cook.
- You can either keep the Rosemary sprigs as is, or you can remove the leaves from the stem. I prefer to remove mine, because I LOVE the taste of fresh rosemary in my food.
- If you have left over veggies, you can blend it into a soup. I placed my veggies with the broth mixture into my Vitamix and blended it until it was smooth. For a creamer consistency, try adding in about 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of full fat coconut milk.
JUST EAT REAL FOOD – Stop focusing on calories & focus on what you’re eating and how it makes you feel. Your body is always giving you signals, but many times we ignore them. Pay attention if you develop nausea, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, joint pain, rashes, sinus problems, or cold sores. If you develop any of these things after eating, it’s a good indicator that your body is giving you a clue to stop consuming something in your food. Many times these symptoms come from consuming chemicals, artificial coloring, and preservatives. Other times these symptoms can occur from a food allergy or sensitivity. Pay attention. Creating a food diary is a really great way to help you figure out what your triggers are. Food elimination diets are a great way to figure out what your triggers are.
