How are you all holding up? 🌻 We're healthy and safe, that's the most important thing!
Are we going a little stir crazy? You betcha, but oh well we'll survive. 🚲 Was supposed to start month 3 of my work out challenge, but you know what I just needed a mental health day. I'll start tomorrow or the next day if needed. Didn't even make Mason get all his school work done, he'll have to finish it tomorrow. We just needed a day to relax as much as possible in this crazy time we're in.

There are so many things I'm thankful for and one of those is the amount of nature areas Washington state has to offer. I'm so thankful we were able to get out and walk Nisqually Wildlife Perserve before the "Stay Home, stay healthy" order the Gov. placed. It was wonderful to get out one last time, this staying home is tough and I don't know how we're going to manage?!! #pnw #nature #optoutside #stayhome #momlife #sendwine

🌴On Saturday we took advantage of the sunshine and finally got out of the house! This will be a rough and trying time for our mental health, not going to lie. But we got to play at the local beach while practicing #socialdistancing it was wonderful! 🌻And we found a beautiful painted rock, thank you to who ever hid it!

What are you going to do with your child if homeschooling isn't cut out for them or your family? Take a deep breath, exhale and relax. It'll be okay! Everyone's health and wellness is much more important at this time than academics. I've got a list of activities if you'd like some structure in your lives though. Check it out on my blog.

Glad we were able to squeeze in one more trip out into the community and zoo before things start shutting down. Friday Piper and I made an impromptu visit to Pt defiance zoo! It was great minus the cold/rain; there was only a couple other people, animals were active, didnt need to touch anything. Now schools are out for 6 weeks and we plan on quarantining ourselves at home for most of that time, except to get out into nature.

On February 3 I started My Peak Challenge and happy to say I'm still going strong! I've been needing to make some lifestyle changes and get more active. I've been working to control what I eat, getting some kind of exercise  in daily which I'm really enjoying. I didn't think I'd ever say that! 💚 #MPC2020 has truly started changing my life, I've had more positive thoughts and my body feels good. @mypeakchallenge

Slow Cooker Coconut Curry Chicken with Lentils

Sharing is caring!

Have I ever told you how much I love my kitchen gadgets and the slow cooker is one of them? Yeah, I probably have but it’s okay I’ll repeat it. I love being able to easily throw my dinner into the Crockpot in the morning, not worry about dinner all day and then come back to delicious home-cooked food. It’s perfect for even the summer when you may not want to run your oven.

Another kitchen gadget I love is the food processor, it makes it easy for me to hide all the vegetables I’m adding to dinner. I’ve got picky members of the family who don’t particularly care for veggies, but blend them up and they don’t seem to care. How does that work?!

We love this Coconut Curry Chicken with Lentils anytime of the year, it’s not spicy or over powering with Indian spices. Full of flavor and ingredients good for our bodies. Serve over rice and garnish with cilantro.

 

Get your food processor and slow cooker out. Place your chicken breasts into the slow cooker. If you need to use frozen chicken that is totally fine, we’ve done it both ways and both ways turn out great. This is a great slow cooker, with a lid in case you want to transport your food somewhere and you want to get a big enough food processor.

Place the rest of the ingredients (except lentils and cilantro) in a food processor and process together until blended. I love how easy the food processor is to sneak in healthy foods and how easy it is to use. Now pour sauce over the chicken in the slow cooker and close lid. Cook on low for 6 hours.

About an hour before you plan on serving food, shred chicken with fork and add lentils. Mix well and close lid.

Dish out your Coconut Curry Chicken and over some rice. Sprinkle with cilantro if you wish. Serve when hot.
