Bone Broth

If you have spent any amount of time within the “paleosphere” you would have heard the virtues of bone broth extolled over and over again. This is not without good reason. It has incredible healing properties for the gut, joints, and bones. It is also rich in minerals that we rarely consume in our westernized diets.

Even with all the good press surrounding bone broth, few people really take the time to make it and consume it on a regular basis. Recently on an Underground Wellness podcast, I listened to an interview with a chef in the San Diego area who makes huge batches of bone broth and sells it in local markets. So naturally, I knew at some point I would have to pick some up. The Flavor Chef’s free-range chicken bone broth was waiting for me at Seaside market in Cardiff. This broth is high quality and NOT INEXPENSIVE, but making your own broth is VERY INEXPENSIVE so I encourage you to use your google search button to find some great bone broth recipes. You can make it over the stove or in a crockpot and use multiple kinds of bones. Give it a try and use some in your next homemade soup!

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌢 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad πŸ₯‘πŸ‹πŸŒΆπŸ₯’
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
