Fat Loss Recipe of the Week: Rosemary Red Pepper Chicken and Sausage – Slow Cooker

 

Rosemary Red Pepper Chicken and Sausage - Slow CookerThis recipe is super easy.  Just put everything into the slow cooker and let it go!  This recipe is great because there is no added oil.  It tastes great on it’s own, or served over pasta. (for those staying away from gluten, there are many gluten free pasta’s available which are delicious.)  Rosemary is a rich source of antioxidants, helps improve digestion, memory and concentration and prevents brain aging!  For a balanced meal, serve with 3/4 Cup of brown rice or red potatoes.
