Recipe and Hip Mobility

In: Uncategorized

Here is a great crock pot recipe donated by reader Denise.  Thanks for sharing.

Chicken in a Crock Pot
4-5 chicken breasts (frozen is fine too)
1 chopped red or green pepper
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 can chick peas (drained/rinsed)
2 tsp basil
1/4 tsp pepper
garlic if you want
Put chicken in the bottom and sprinkle with spices.  Put everything else on top.  Cook on high for 4-6 hours or on low for 8-10 hours.
I usually serve on top of brown rice or pasta with a side of my kids favourite green vegetable (right now it’s broccoli).  It’s great for lunches the next day and sometimes I shred the chicken and it kind of makes a soup with the leftover liquid. 
Lately I have been paying special attention to my hip joint during my workouts.  Working on the joint includes mobility to help prevent any pinching or unnatural feelings that may arise from aging, giving birth or anatomy such as your Q angle.  Using a series of hip circles and figure 8 patterns is a great start.  This are great preventative exercises, but if you do need extra attention you can also add this short series of moves. 
1. Mountain Climber done in a slow deliberate pattern. 
2. From your hands and knees lifting one leg at a time back using your glut and circling the leg around in a circle- like the fire hydrant move
3. From all 4’s kneeling lift one hand to the ceiling out to the side- you should feel a huge stretch through you abdomen/obliques and maybe hips.
