DAY 1: distractions.

Good morning! And happy Lent! Oh wait…that’s not right. This is supposed to be a solemn time. Okay, well happy Wednesday! And happy 1st day of no sugar! This is just a tiny little Pixy-reminder to eat a healthy breakfast! I’ll just leave this bright, cheery plate right here… Those are eggs fried in just a touch of coconut oil, two handfuls of organic baby … Continue reading DAY 1: distractions.

Island Pulled Pork w/Indian Peanut Slaw.

This is a variation on Aarti Sequiera’s Mango Pulled Pork with Peanut Slaw.  Here’s the original post: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/winner-aarti-sequeira1/pulled-pork-with-mango-bbq-sauce-recipe-1921724 This is the only pulled pork recipe I make, but I change it up a bit each time.  Usually this recipe changes for me based on what I have on hand.  But the idea is all Aarti and I think she is brilliant.

Day 21?

Okay, I COMPLETELY forgot to post anything on the last day of the reset!  TERRIBLE!  So here’s my belated last-day post! Not that I have anything interesting to say.

Day 20!

One more day, y‘all!  One more day!!! I am definitely going to continue on for the full 30 days, but I promise I‘ll leave you alone after tomorrow!  I‘ll go back to my regular, random posts, and stop filling your inboxes with my daily highs and lows. I think this way of eating is so delicious, though.  I can‘t imagine stopping, although I’m sure I‘ll … Continue reading Day 20!
