Crockpots, in my opinion, is truly the most underused kitchen appliance there is. However, they are definitely the handiest and super simple to clean up! 

I always view them as if they are my sous chef preparing my food while I just go about my day working or running errands. 

You can throw everything in, set it and forget it. A few hours go by and you return to a home smelling like delicious dinner aromas.

If you were to read the nutritional section of the news today, you'd probably believe that...

Saturated fat causes heart disease.

A plant based diet is the HEALTHIEST.

The paleo diet is a fad.

And my personal favorite (maybe EVER)...

Farts cure cancer.

Can you imagine if after meals it felt like food was trapped in your esophagus!?

And sometimes it was so uncomfortable that you had to vomit or visit the emergency room?

Well this is exactly what happened to one of my best friends, Kelly Johnson, as a result of a condition called eosinophilic esophagitis.

Kelly and I met on Jennifer Lopez's first world tour where she was working as JLo's stylist and I was working as her personal trainer under the guidance of Tracy Anderson. You might have soon her in Jlo's documentary.

And even though doctors we not really able to resolve her issue (and in fact, recommended she start taking steroids), after some diligent experimentation and a few dietary teaks Kelly is virtually flare-up free and feeling like a brand new women!

As a result of spending 7 months on tour with yours truly, Kelly got more than her fair share of "food is medicine" chatter. Even if she doubted the incredible power of dietary change then, she is a true blue believer now.
