I wrote before about one of my New Year’s Resolutions to eat better. That crockpot meal turned out okay, but a little bland. I’m such an incredibly visual person that I do a lot of my cooking by sight. It seems like if something looks good, it often tastes good (but not always!). So that last stew was pretty bland looking, with chicken meat, and potatoes making up the bulk of it. I’m trying it again today, and let’s see if I can remember what all is in here:

crockpot meal

  • 4 small buffalo steaks
  • one yam (way more colorful than sweet potatoes)
  • not quite two carrots
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • a small handful of organic sundried tomatoes
  • an organic Granny Smith apple
  • some red onion
  • a bit of purple flowering kale
  • some slices of red bell pepper (I had yellow also, but I ran out of room)
  • two stalks of celery
  • organic purple cabbage
  • handful of green onion
  • big handful of fresh organic cilantro
  • about 2 cups of organic vegetable broth
  • about 2 cups of water

I think I’m forgetting a few things, but you get the idea. I just walked through the produce isle and picked up the most colorful things I could see.
