Hello! We’ve been loving our low-key, family-focused time with the boys these past couple weekend. Last weekend we spent time at a local art fair, and also happened up on a Hunt & Hounds parade – it was quite the adventure!
And there might have even been gluten-free gingerbread-house making that took place. It isn’t paleo, but it is gluten-fee… because #wearehuman. We know you understand.
Oh you guys – Stacy discovered something new this week… it’s dangerous- you sure want to know? I can’t believe we hadn’t tried this before: Chameleon Cold Brew Mocha flavor coffee WITH Pure Indian Foods Coffee Ghee. Seriously. So. Good. No, seriously.
And you just know its going to be a good week when you get to stop at one of your favorite places; my happy place. A butcher shop of course. But not just any shop, Red Apron Butcher Shop! And I never leave there without BACON. BROTH, LARD and TALLOW FRIES. I refuse.
Speaking of bacon… (who me, speaking of bacon?) we had a nice conversation on Facebook the other day about gallbladders. People are often surprised how I’m able to eat so much (good, healthy) fat (see our recent post on LOVING LARD) without one. Here’s the details of how I do it without a gallbladder!
If you’re not following us on Facebook and Instagram, you’re missing some pretty hilarious conversation (not to mention weekly giveaways)! Matt reminded us all of this epic (funny and serious) blog post about getting your NON-COOPERATIVE spouse on board with healthier eating.
We also got to do something exciting this week! We put together a CUSTOM MEAT BOX where you can buy our favorite cuts (and try out our recommended recipes for them) from Bos Creek, a sustainable and humane farm that delivers meat to your door. A BOX-O-MEAT makes a pretty awesome holiday gift!
Another big event this week was the family getting back into our home gym, #houseofgainz. We’ve been so busy lately that we had to prioritize sleep and getting some other things done for a few weeks, but we’re finally back at it and love spending quality time together while getting healthy at the same time! The boys love creating “set lists” of their favorite songs for our sessions and replicating mommy’s workout. Interestingly, unlike mommy, they’ve developed a love of bench pressing and are super good at strict HSPUs! #totesadorbs
Congrats to our friends!
Keep in mind, our friend The Paleo Mom talks about emulsifiers in this incredibly well articulated and researched article, so be thoughtful about your use of gums in grain-free baking.
AND AN ANNOUNCEMENT!
One of things our family decided when we discussed (in a family meeting, all 5 of us) that we were going to do going forward was work on projects that still helped people but that wouldn’t take too much time away from the family. That’s why earlier this year the Paleo Parents Team helped us pull together an INCREDIBLE bundle of resources from the top EXPERTS around the real food and paleo communities for you going into the new year: The Family Resolution Revolution. We’ve compiled the ABSOLUTE BEST resources you will need to revolutionize your family’s health in 2015. It’s one of those dream projects of ours, putting together a list of all the things we wish we’d had when we took on the challenge of reclaiming our family’s health. We are SO excited to share this with you DECEMBER 26th!
