Hello friends, I've got something great to share with you today! Anyone who has been reading this blog or follows the Who's got the thyme? Facebook page, knows I'm a fan of the food blog known as 100 Days of Real Food. Remember that super easy cook the whole chicken in the slow-cooker (genius)? That was the blog creator, Lisa Leake's recipe. So yesterday was a big day for Lisa as her very first (and likely not her last) cookbook was released. I'm telling you, if you have any interest in making the shift (which I hope you all do if you haven't already) to REAL FOOD you need this book. Processed foods are a detriment to the health of Americans. They are largely to blame for the obesity epidemic and often the cause of so many chronic conditions. Lisa's book is a fantastic reference for the person who is new to the real food scene (as crazy as that sounds). She offers a wealth of information and real guidance to help you get away from processed foods. I'm excited to have this in my arsenal as I try to eliminate processed foods from our home too. Generally we do pretty well but some things (breads, condiments, crackers) are taking some time to navigate but we are getting there. Of course this is not just a real food reference book, it's full of great recipes for beginners and seasoned cooks alike.
Today I'm going to show you her recipe for Veggie Corn Chowder (just in time for fall) which was simple, fast and really tasty.
100 Days of Real Food. After you cook that chicken in the slow-cooker you can turn the carcass into homemade chicken stock. Last year I cooked two turkeys for Thanksgiving and made a ton of stock for the freezer. It's cheap (since you bought the bird anyway) and easy and is way more flavorful than the canned broth (which usually contains at least a few questionables).
