Such a yummy and filling comfort food for fall. You CAN eat comfort foods without chemicals, gluten, sugar and a lot of fat. Put on comfy socks, kick up your feet on the porch, watch the leaves change and enjoy this stew with a mug of organic, sugar-free apple cider.
Chuck Roast - 2 lbs
4 cups of vegetable or chicken broth (you can use beef broth, but all the ones I found contain yeast.)
4 Carrots (washed, peeled and chopped)
2 Stalks of Celery (washed and chopped)
Fresh herbs of choice
2 medium sweet potatoes (peeled and cut into cubes)
I medium onion, chopped
Brown the chuck roast in a pan with olive oil before placing in crock pot. Once browned, cut into cubes and brown a little longer until each side is slightly seared. Add to crockpot, place cut vegetables and herbs inside and mix. Pour broth on top, place the lid and cook on low heat for 10-12 hours.
*you can cook this on high 5-6 hours, however the meat will not be as tender on this setting. I prefer to cook roasts on low so that it doesn't get chewy.
Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

All recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free with a lot of soy-free, grain-free, sugar-free options.
