Clean Eating Slow Cooker Roasted Chicken

Roasted Chicken Step 4

Roast Chicken

All my slow cooker recipes are very easy for the most part, however this Roast Chicken recipe has seriously got to be one of the easiest! With my husband traveling for work so much lately, I’ve found myself eating a ton of chicken because it is something he does not like (with the exception of chicken wings!)

This crockpot recipe is so great, because not only is the chicken delicious right away, but you can shred or chop up the left overs to use in salads, tacos, burritos and casseroles! And why turn on the oven when you can use your slow cooker and not have to worry about leaving it alone if you have a few errands to run?

Best Prices on Healthy Food Online at Vitacost

I’ve often heard of Amazon having great prices on organic foods online, however I’ve found that Vitacost.com has incredible prices on clean eating organic foods versus my local grocery store. Vitacost.com has been around since 1994 and is also one of Amazon’s vendors.

Overall, the prices are low and they have a great selection compared to other organic websites. What makes Vitacost an incredibly awesome deal is that they are always have great sales and BOGO PLUS they are on Ebates.com for 4% cash back.

But that’s not all (giggle- I sound like an infomercial!), if you aren’t already on Ebates.com, you get a $10 gift card to Target for signing up AND you are able to get $10 off a $30 Vitacost purchase with my referral code (which gets me the same deal!)

Intrigued? I just made a $67.12 Vitacost.com purchase and used someone’s referral code to get $10 off. There is free shipping with a purchase over $49- so that was free too. With my new Ebates account I’ll be getting a $10 gift card to Target (the “bonus” option I picked- there are others like Macy’s) plus $2.33 cash back.

Not too bad totaling $22.33 in combined savings, cashback and giftcards!

On a slightly different note, Vitacost is having an awesome BOGO sale on essentials- one of which is the great Bionaturae organic tomato paste. This brand is great for two reasons: 1) It’s organic and 2) it comes in a glass container, a rarity for tomato paste that generally comes in a BPA lined can. Vitacost already had a really great price of $8.61 for a 3-pack ($2.87 each). When you take advantage of this BOGO the average price of 6 goes down to $2.15 a piece.
