No Time to Cook: Lamb, Shitake Mushroom & Leek Stew

Who hasn’t found themselves “too busy to cook” at some point in their work week? That’s where I found myself last Thursday night. I realized that my entire Friday and pretty much Saturday too were going to be super busy. At 10pm I was wondering how could I prepare something nutritious and delicious for myself for tomorrow’ busy day. Crock pot to the rescue!! It only took me about 10 minutes to chop up the ingredients. I threw everything in my crockpot, got into bed and went off into dream land which was interlaced with the delicious smells of my stew cooking all night long…

Lamb & Leek Stew
Ingredients: 
Lamb Stew Meat (about 1 pound). You can use grass fed beef if you’d prefer. Lamb is one of the “cleanest” meats, meaning that they typically won’t give lamb feed laced with pesticides and hormones. Grass fed meats are as good a source for omega 3 fatty acids as wild salmon. Grass fed meats also provide CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), a type of fatty acid that prevents belly fat. 
1 Large Organic Leek Leeks are a natural diuretic and have anti-arthritic properties.
2 Large Organic Carrots Carrots are the richest vegetable source of beta-carotenes, great for your eyes and skin.
Handful of Organic Shitake Mushrooms Super immune boosting and cancer fighting!
Beef Bone Broth   You can make your own  but I like to get mine from Three Stone Hearth , my local, community supported kitchen. Bone broth healing for the gut, helps digestion and breakdown of protein foods, and provides highly absorbable minerals and nutrients. 
Half of a Large Onion  Sulfur rich onions help your liver detoxification processes
Garlic Cloves (3-5)  Garlic also helps with detox. Garlic is immune boosting: anti-microbial, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial
Sea Salt & Pepper to taste
Thyme Supports respiratory health. Also fights candida (yeast overgrowth)
Instructions: 
Chop the leek into round slices. Soak the chopped leek in a large bowl of water to wash off all of the dirt that clings inside the leek. 
Chop your carrots, onion, and mushrooms into chunks. 
Peel the garlic cloves and cut each into 2 or 3 pieces. Throw everything into your crock pot and set it to “Low.” Add a large spoonful of Beef Broth for moisture and added nutrition. Let your crock pot do its thing! 
I let my stew cook for 10 hours. Season with Sea Salt, Pepper, & Thyme to taste. Eat on its own or serve over brown rice or quinoa. 
Enjoy!
Yours in Health,

    Ça a l’air délicieux, mais je ne sais pas si j’aurais envie de sentir l’odeur du ragoût quand je me lève le matin, c’est trop tôt dans la journée pour moi. Très intéressant de savoir que les poireaux sont bien contre l’arthrite. Merci !

Both the internet and the desktop are annoyingly slow. It’s a PC and it’s not new, but I’m not sure how old it is. We’ve had it for 3 years and before that, my aunt had for at least 4 years. I defragment it and do the disk cleanup regularly. And it has a lot of free memory left (it’s like 75% of the computer’s total memory is free). I have an up-to-date anti-virus program on it (BitDefender), and it runs scans on it, and has NEVER found a virus. All of the fire-walls are up and running. What could be wrong with my computer?? Please help!! *Thanks!* how to unlock iphone 4 unlock iphone 4 unlock iphone 4 [url=http://unlockiphone421.com%5Dunlock iphone 4[/url] unlock iphone 4 how to unlock iphone 4
