These tortillas. I can’t stop. I’ve literally been putting all my foods in a tortilla. Kind of like that guy that indiscriminately puts ketchup on his food. Eggs, potatoes, steak, bagels… Ketchup 4 Life Guy. I’m that guy… just with paleo tortillas. One of their more shining qualities is durability which is hard to find in a wheat-free tortilla and especially a grain-free tortilla. I’ve been making them non-stop for clients and myself.

This week’s favorite filling was wild shrimp and salsa verde. I just happened to have a half jar of trader joe’s salsa verde in my fridge and some frozen wild shrimp waiting for its culinary destiny. Dinner is served.

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!
