There is certainly nothing like facing a health issue that forces you to get focused on your health. Determining that changing my diet was the key ingredient to healing my autoimmune disorder, I wasn’t sure where to begin. I’m not originally your kitchen-type of girl. But finding simple — real simple — solutions to heal my inner gut and immune system from the inside out were pretty easy. It just took a little planning.
My favorite way to plan and cook is throwing a meal in a crock-pot and forgetting about it. There’s something magical about a crock pot! You really feel like your accomplishing a lot while you go on multi-tasking throughout the day. So you’ll want to save this recipe because you will use it frequently for many health benefits.
Slow roasted lemon chicken should be a weekly meal in your home.
Not only is free-range chicken healthy and noninflammatory, but you will use the bones for a healing bone broth that will be most beneficial for sipping, as well as cooking with the rest of the week. Cook it on Sunday and you are ready for healthy meals all week. This chicken will fall off the bones! This post contains resource affiliate links for your convenience.

A few key tips about your ingredients.
- Try cooking in a large crockpot. You’ll be glad you cooked a large amount when you can eat off of it all week long.
- Buy free-range or farm raised chicken. These can be found at limited grocery stores or try your local farmer’s market. Free-range ensures that the meat as not been produced with hormones. In healing yourself from the inside out, you need to be mindful to alleviate all foreign chemicals from your body.
- You can use the extra virgin olive oil you have on hand. But I suggest once that runs out, substitute with an organic non-GMO brand. Bragg Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a great one.
- Apple cider vinegar has great healing properties in it. Be sure to use a brand that has the mother in it. Once again Bragg brand is great — Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother.
- While you should be alleviating salt from your diet, you may you sea salt.
