It’s seriously unreal how delicious this was. It was so delicious, that it is replacing our Thanksgiving TURKEY this year.

Yep, the pig is on the menu!

Many thanks to Nom Nom Paleo and her AMAZING talent.

I have SOOOOO many cookbooks and recipes stashed in binders and I’ve really been wanting to experiment more and try out some of these inspiring creations. This one was so easy that I had no excuse not to try it.

We had a 3.5 lb. shoulder roast (see my grocery post here), so there was plenty to go around for a few days. We also cooked it up with eggs and hot sauce. It was great in lettuce wraps. I used it as a “stand in” for carnitas.

All it took was some salt, pork, bacon, garlic, and a slow-cooker…. and 16-20 hours of patience!

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 🥑🍋🌶🥒
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. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ 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!
