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!

PRODUCT ALERT//
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
