There are a couple of great posts that I wanted to pass along that have truly helped motivate me this week. First, there is this post from Brynith over at BeeLifestyle. It's a nice recap of her progress with the primal lifestyle, and it's written with such honesty. http://www.brynith.com/blog/2009/03/04/primal-challenge-update/
Bee's post lead me to this post from Dr. Michael Eades, http://www.proteinpower.com/drmike/statins/meditating-in-the-garden-of-self-loathing/ This is a great read about how we tend to put everyone else above ourselves priority wise. Both of these posts came at a really good time, as I needed a little lift this week.
Here's a delish crockpot recipe that I made this weekend. Put it in the crockpot the night before, and the BF was a little surprised when I said it was for breakfast, since he is generally one of those "traditionalist" who thinks breakfast has to be carb heavy. Once he tasted it though, there were no complaints.....though I did have tortillas for him so he could get his "fix."
4-5 lb boneless Pork Shoulder Butt, cut into 1-inch cubes
17 oz diced green chiles
9 garlic cloves, chopped (or about 2 tbsp. minced garlic)
2-12 oz cans Whole Tomatillos, drained
Rind of ½ of an orange
2 Beef Bouillon cubes
½ tsp. Cumin
½ med White Onion, chopped
8 oz beer
In a dutch oven, or cast iron skillet, brown pork cubes in butter or bacon fat. Put browned pork in Crock-Pot with all other ingredients. Cook on low for 8-9 hours. Serve topped with avocado, sour cream and/or shredded cheese. This is very mild, so if you want some spice, add some hot sauce, or a diced Jalapeno.
