8 November 2017

If you feel like hibernating luckily you don’t have to face the wind and the rain to get to your favourite Sleek class. You can Sleek whatever the weather from the comfort of your own home. You may be less inclined to whizz up that crunchy salad for supper but you can still have comfort food that doesn’t pile on the pounds.

Pair you favourite Sleek or Baby Sleek workout with a hearty, warming dinner dish. Try this great chicken soup recipe that is super healthy, packed with nutrition and very low in fat. It is warming enough to satisfy but light enough to eat before or after workouts. It will leave you feeling Sleek and satisfied.

INGREDIENTS

3lb 1/2 – to 4lb whole chicken

6 carrots, peeled

4 celery stalks

1 large yellow onion, quartered

2 teaspoons salt

1teaspoon whole black peppercorns

DIRECTIONS

Place the chicken in a large pot. Cut 3 of the carrots and 2 of the celery stalks into 1-inch pieces. Quarter the onion. Add these cut vegetables to the pot with the salt, peppercorns, and enough cold water to cover (about 8 cups). Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, skimming any foam that rises to the top, until the chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a bowl and let cool. Strain the broth, discarding the vegetables. Return the broth to the pot. Thinly slice the remaining carrots and celery. Add them to the broth and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes. When the chicken is cool enough to handle, shred the meat and add it to the soup. Ladle into individual bowls.
