This recipe is not for healing … [Read More...]

Paleo Slow Cooker – Round UP

One of the biggest complaints about paleo has always been the time factor. I get it 100%! When you make meals from scratch and aren’t nuking prepared meals or throwing an oven safe ready made tray into the oven, it takes time.

The A/C has been fixed which can only mean one thing! Ok actually it means many things like my house isn’t 90 degrees INSIDE anymore, my skin isn’t sticky, and the coconut oil is less runny. It ALSO means I am cooking again! I tried using a toaster oven a few times during the heat wave…

You know how some people get a hang nail and have to air all their dirty laundry about how they got the hang nail, how big the hang nail is, and what they named their hang nail? It’s nauseating isn’t it? So I typically try not to be an over-sharer, because really nobody wants to…
