Pineapple Salsa

It finally happened. I legitimately hurt myself at work.

When you’re a cook, there’s a general understanding that you are going to end up getting little nicks and burns here and there. For me, there has always been a nagging dread of the one day when occupational hazards and fate meet in one perfect pain storm… and that day was today.

I cut the tip of my thumb off. THE TIP OF MY THUMB! Gross? Definitely. Painful? For sure. Grateful that it wasn’t my entire finger? You bet. Sometimes, slicing a garlic clove isn’t as easy as it sounds. One slip of the knife and you will be dealing with a bum hand for a couple of weeks. It’s a bleak future (ok, that’s a bit short-sighted, but holy HECK my hand hurts). Let’s just say, showering is going to be awkward.

Well, enough of my complaining. And since you probably feel like eating now, here’s yet another NON-DESSERT recipe that is delicious and Summery and PALEO!

*note: no body parts were harmed in the making of this salsa.

Stopped by @lazyacresmarket_encinitas and grabbed this tonic to keep my immune system solid while my little guy fights a cold. I'm not gonna lie, it doesn't taste that good, but has some crazy good ingredients and so far I'm keeping all the germs from taking me down 👊🏻 Not upset about my breakfast situation.
GF sourdough open faced breakfast sandwich and bone broth with all the immune boosting goodies. #goodonya #northcountysd #needonedowntown PREPARATION// One thing I never regret;
Taking time to meal prep for myself. It's so much easier to make healthy food choices and lose the stress over time spent in the kitchen when you're prepared! #mealpreppin #gingerorangepork #slowcookerftw If you didn't catch my live video yesterday about my grocery shopping (riveting... I know.), I gave the low down on why and how I make my own nut butter.
1. It's generally cheaper.
2. It tastes way better.
3. Easy to do in a vitamix or food processor. Just have patience because you're not making a smoothie, you're grinding nuts until they release their oils and smooth out.
Need another reason to make your own? 
4. Customization
This batch had a touch of vanilla and cinnamon and I can easily control the amount of saltiness.
You guyyyyysssss. It's so good and easy. Be like Nike and #justdoit
