Place chicken breasts in the crockpot with onion, carrots, red potatoes and two garlic cloves. Cover with chicken broth, cream of mushroom soup and black pepper. Add in sliced mushrooms the last hour of cooking.
Mix beef with garlic powder, pepper, Italian seasoning and parsley. Shape into 4 patties. Cook over medium-high heat, either in a skillet coated with olive oil spray, grill pan or on a grill, for at least 4 minutes on each side.
Combine all the ingredients except the olive oil in a large mixing bowl and shape into about 30 meatballs 1 inch across. Spray a large nonstick skillet generously with olive oil. Cook the meatballs for 5 to 6 minutes, working in batches if your pan is not large enough to fit them all, occasionally moving them around to brown all sides.
Need an emotional lift or simply to blow off some steam?! Getting in a little exercise can be just what you need to turn that frown upside down. Regular physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that make you feel happier, and is also a key factor in maintaining your overall health, weight and energy levels.
Healthy fats are pivotal to achieving optimal wellness. Monounsaturated fats (olive oil, avocados, nuts) and polyunsaturated fats (Omega-6 and Omega-3) have a tremendously positive effect on your health, when eaten in moderation. Omega-6 (sunflower oil, corn oil, safflower oil) and Omega-3 (salmon, flax seeds, walnuts) fats are called “essential” fatty acids (EFAs) because our bodies need them, but cannot manufacture them.
