Anyone have good slow cooker recipes for protein and veggie dishes? Looking to bulk cook things like cheap cuts of beef or pork and lots of chicken breasts. Something like this for example:

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/27/dining/mississippi-roast.html

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ree-drummond/drip-beef-sandwiches.html

thought this sounded interesting as well

French Dip Roast
1 (3lb.) beef roast
2 C. water
1/2 C. soy sauce
1 tsp. dried rosemary
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 bay leaf
3 -4 whole peppercorns

My wife loves to do that stuff in the winter, I'll ask what she's got.

Went with whole foods 365. Cheap and rated well.

Anyone come up with good slow cooker recipes?
Shit, I forgot about checking on that, there is a good chicken one I need to look up for you. Basically a thick noodle soup.

Carbonara last night, Rome beat Milan.

Speaking of thick noodle soups, if those count as well, my favorite bulk cooking veggie dish:

I always do it w/o noodles to make it Montignac. You can also swap the legumes, obvs. Just use two different kinds of whatever is available in addition to the chickpeas, which I would keep, since chickpeas can turn any veggie dish into a real, hearty meal.

not at the moment. trying to run it as simply as possible to eliminate any issues certain foods might be giving me.
If you want very simple, one of my favorite winter stews will work. Just grab a side of stew beef, toss in pot with corn, whole peeled tomatos, onion and let rip all day in slow cooker. I use lima beans too but if you are skipping legumes just omit.

I put kernels in a paper bag and popped it in the microwave to popcorn. I bought a bag of kernels on Amazon to make free shipping but steered clear of the pre mixed microwave bags I've eaten since I was a child.

I'm quite proud of myself. I don't have to up my sodium count and I can do this even if I'm sloshed.

The missus gets some tasty stringy salami sausages from the Polish supermarket. Likely great with beer, but probably not healthy on the sodium front.

Salt is only bad for you if it is. Many people - me included - eat tons of salt and it has no effect at all on BP.

In my old age I find if I consume too much salt my tongue starts going metallic on me the next day preceded by insatiable thirst for water. I eat out quite a bit but now avoid things like Subway, chain store pizzas, grocery store rotisserie because I'm guaranteed that effect. Since I'm in total control at home, every compensating act helps.

Of course that means I put a stop to deli meats, sausages, crisps and a whole manner of processed foods that I am naturally addicted to.

My blood pressure has always been on the low to normal range.

Reported.

You cannot use "old age" as you have failed to provide the answer to your poll and confirm your age.

C'mon Fwiffs, come clean.

I wish I was close to the sea. Eating trout, whitefish, etc. is nice but I just had mackerel today and it reminded me how I love oily greasy fishes.

finally tried out that La Croix sparkling water after a few people i know raved about it. i don't understand the appeal. it tastes like seltzer with a lime waved over the top of the glass.

It's like a middle class suburban version of hipster-ism. Kinda like when PBR was all the rage again for a minute.

I've been buying a lot of whole mackerel cutting my own sashimi, so cheap and delicious.
