Healthy Chicken Crockpot Recipes

Chicken soup is one of the healthiest soups. When I was sick my mom would make plain congee with just rice and water for me to detox my body. When I was weak she’d make chicken soup for me to boots my immune system. Today I will show you how to make the fastest and most lazy way to make a delicious combination of both. This is one of the easiest chicken recipes that will take less than 10mins to prepare.

I love congee or porridge. One of my all-time favorites is chicken rice congee. This is one of the easiest chicken recipes, slow cooker recipes that you can cook in a crockpot. Crockpot chicken recipes are my favorite because they are so easy to make. It takes no time to prepare and no maintenance in front of a stove. All you need is chicken, rice, dried scallops ( optional), and water. Watch the video below for more details. Enjoy this crockpot chicken porridge soup on a cold day or any lazy day. You don’t have to slave all day to get a nutritious meal. What’s great about this slow cooker chicken recipe is you also get a nutritious bone soup all mixed in the batch. I hope you’ll give it a try. Enjoy.

Messy House,Frugal Hoarding: 2020 Declutter Challenge

February 9th, 2020 § 0 comments § permalink

In this 2020 Declutter Challenge, I want to organize my messy clutter to change my hoarding habits. I am sick of my messy clutter. I am starting a 2020 declutter challenge for myself and hope you will join me. I recently learned I have hoarding tendencies with frugal thrifty values. It will be a hard journey to discover what frugal definition and frugal meaning applies to me. I am far from letting go of all my things, this is only a scratch on the surface to let go of all the stress that is caused by clutter. I have more than plenty of what I need, in this challenge, I will join “Useless”, an influencer I’ve been watching on a “Low Buy No Buy ” challenge to avoid accumulating more things in the process. I hope you will join me on this detox journey.

I’ll post my progress here below.

This quote is a great reminder that external things are not the barriers to our success. Although we are much more fortunate then the crippled character in this drama we often have many hidden physical and mental weaknesses not far from him. We can take the advice from the girl above and learn to use our hearts desire and passion to overcome them. Believe and keep on believing in ourselves in order to reach our goals.

Mistakes

~ Fancy W.

Today my friend made me notice the high expectations and images of those I look up to. I didn’t know I put them in such an unreachable place. As if they shouldn’t make certain mistakes, they know better. They are morally higher then the mistakes they make. I would get confused and wonder why when mistakes happen. As I write this, I feel how silly my thoughts are and that I should know better but never realized it. I learned something new about myself today.

Am I lowering myself and idealizing these people? Or are they my excuse to do bad when I see them mess up? I guess when I am looking up to others as models I forget they are humans. They are not any better then me. We all are just people with different experiences and decisions to make. Sometime we do better then other times. There’s not one person in this world who hasn’t made a mistake or is immune to mistakes.

Reminder to self: The people who I look up to cannot be responsible for the decision I make. I take full responsibility for my own mistakes in life. I can choose the good over the bad influences that effects me.

Effort can become ability

Remember, effort can become ability

The girl in the picture has failed a physical exam which is the prerequisite to her dream job. With her family against her, she is ready to quit and give up. With a friend’s help and training she is encouraged and determined to succeed. I don’t have odds against me like her but I admit I can be pretty lazy, undetermined and can have very low confidence just like her. This is a great constant reminder to keep making effort. Even the worst can become the best with persistent effort. 🙂
