Slow Cooker Chili Verde

slow cooker chili verde

One of the hardest things for me to remember is that I have limitations.  I started the 30 Day Body Weight Challenge and it kicked my butt after only one workout.  It made me feel so drained and I was run down for three days.  This helped me realize that I can not do workouts like this because they hurt more than help in my journey.

I WANT to be the chick who can do crossfit and do 7 minutes of burpees but I’m not.   I want to be buff like a cheetah but let’s face it, there is no way on earth I’m going to dedicate the time and focus that it takes for me to look like a fitness model.  I’m not going to say “No” more times than “Yes” when it comes to treats.  This does not not mean that I don’t want to be healthy and strong.  This just means that I refuse to spend any more time focusing on things that don’t fit my lifestyle.

I’m finally committing 100% to T Tapp.  I need a workout that “works” and helps my body heal from some of the lingering adrenal issues I’ve been dealing with and T Tapp fits the bill.  I also am going to make it more of a priority to sticking to a lower carb Paleo diet.   Don’t worry, I will still make cookies because what is life without cookies? Not one I want to live.

This chili verde recipe is a start to this intention.  It’s also simple and Whole 30 compliant.   I kept away from tomatillos because honestly, they are too sour for my tastes.  This is rich, warm and delicious and I hope you enjoy it.

    I made a delicious white chicken chili in my slow cooker today for the game. I think I’m addicted to slow cooking. I am going to try this one out next!

    Hello there! I just found your blog recently and I love it. I really respect what you said about your work out regimen. It takes a lot of courage to admit that your wants are not your needs and to be okay with that without feeling totally defeated. I’ve been struggling with an undiagnosed chronic pain condition for a few years and it has forced me to face this issue to. I WANT to be super active and ride my bike everyday and climb mountains like a boss. But my body often says no. So I gotta do just what I can and what feels helpful and stop comparing myself to others. It’s tough though! What I am saying is Thank you for the post. You encouraged and inspired me! The recipe looks great too! :) :)

    I am inspired to whip out the crockpot again this week. There is just something about the smell of a wonderful diner simmering throughout the day…LOVE!
    I totally get the workout pain – – I just had to accept my health & body for what they are, and know when, and how far, to push myself.

    Great recipe! We just made this today, and I have to say that it is worth making for the smell alone. Easy (once the peppers are seeded), fragrant and delicious! Thanks for sharing.

    This looks delicious! I’m not a fan of pork, though– would it work to sub chicken broth for beef broth and chicken for the pork?
