We wanted to bring you a great chicken pot pie recipe now that winter is approaching. We know that it’s getting cold outside and a nice warm meal can bring a sense of relaxation to what can be a difficult and stressful time of year. The other great thing about this recipe is you can substitute the chicken with turkey. We all know how difficult it can be to get rid of that extra turkey leftovers from all the family gatherings. This chicken pot pie recipe has a large amount of nutritional value. We wanted to make sure that there was a variety of vegetables to make it as healthy as possible for you and your family.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup butter
3 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil first-cold press
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 handful of chopped carrots
1 handful of chopped peas
1 1/2 chopped baked potatoes
2 shredded kale leaves
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cups of chicken broth
1 cup of milk
2 cups shredded cooked skinless chicken
1 premade crusted pan

Direction:
You will want to start by preheating your oven to 420 degrees fahrenheit. While the oven is preheating you will want to melt the butter on a large pan. take the prepared vegetables and place them in the pan. Cover them with the salt and the pepper. Place the milk, chicken broth, and olive oil in a separate pot and bring the mixture to a boil. While the mixture is boiling add the whole wheat flour and stir. Let the mixture thicken as you stir and let boil until it reaches your desired thickness. Remove the pot from the stove and let it sit for three minutes. Mix in the cooked vegetables and cooked shredded chicken. Place the mixture into the premade crusted pan. Cover the pie with the premade crust cover and seal the edges. Create a few slits in the top of the crust cover. Place the pie in the over and cook for approximately 25 to 30 minutes. Check the crust to assure it is cooked and golden brown. Once the pie is cooked remove it from the oven and let it sit for fifteen minutes.

Old Fashioned Meatloaf Recipe

Meatloaf is another classic American meal that makes a kitchen feel like home. It is important to get this recipe right if you want to impress friends and guests who have pretty high expectations from their personal mom’s kitchen. When I’m cooking meatloaf if brings back not just memories of being at home and with family but specific holidays. We each have recipes that are dear to our hearts and my personal meatloaf recipe has become increasing more important to me over the years.

1 pound of ground beef

1/3 teaspoon ground black pepper

1.5 teaspoons of salt

1/3 cup chopped onion

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 beaten egg

1/4 cup ketchup

1 cup dried bread crumbs

Ingredients and Directions:

You will want to start by preheating the oven. Set the temperature to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowel. prepare a 4×8 inch baking pan. Do not grease or oil the pan. Fill the pan with the prepared ingredients. Let the ingredients cook for 40 minutes. After the 40 minutes check to see if the meatloaf is cooked by placing a dry knife into the center of the pan.

Since this recipe includes red meat it should be eaten in moderation. We mostly want to teach good eating habits here on at the Food Shed. If you decide to use red meat substitutes or a portion of red meat substitutes it is even better. The risks associated with heart disease and eating red meat are extremely concerning and should be taken into consideration in all dietary options.

While meatloaf is one of my most memorable recipes that are associated with my past it doesn’t make it the most healthy option for the dinner table. We here at the food shed have decided that we want to teach people healthy eating habits. We consult with healthcare providers to build recipes and raise concerns to people related to healthy eating habits.
The healthcare providers we consult have their ACLS online certification. They have been trained to help individuals in the time of crisis of a heart attack or stroke and want to prevent these events at all cost. These ACLS online certified healthcare workers want to not just teach us healthy lifestyle habits but also help us realize how easy they are to implement. What would you give to lower your chance for a heart attack or stroke by 40%? These possibilities are real and reachable without huge changes in diet or lifestyle. Many of these ACLS online certified providers are also certified in PALS and BLS certification. We urge each of our readers to continue the search to build better eating and lifestyle habits. Thanks for reading and please share your thoughts.
