Life with a CrockPot is so wonderful! On Sunday, Dr. Noah mentioned a recipe for Bison & Butternut Cocoa Chili in the Practical Paleo book…needless to say, I tried it! It came out really good, just a little too spicy (and I even cut out some of the hot stuff). Next time I will use less chili powder for sure. And for the bison, well I’m shocked at how good it was! Did you know that bison is always grass fed? Amazing. Then yesterday I made a Paleo version of Chicken Cacciatore in my CrockPot…I took a few minutes to cut everything up and prepare it when I got home from work, turned it on, and took a nap. When I woke up a few hours later…my dinner was ready! Paleo made easy, for sure. Now I’m scouring the internet for recipes. Today, I’ll probably prepare a london broil to eat for tomorrow, and maybe the day after. It makes life on my schedule, much easier. I won’t be using the CrockPot for every meal, but I can always prepare a meal, and do a CrockPot one at the same time, as opposed to cooking 3 meals at once to have them prepared for a few days. Get my drift? :c)
Okay, so I enjoy researching random things (as you have noticed). Came across the term “leptin”. Leptin is that little trigger in our bodies that says “Hey, eat more!”, or “Hey, stop eating!”. Unfortunately, we see many people who are leptin resistant. When this happens, a reset needs to take place. If you eat a Paleolithic type diet (low carb – high fat) and do high intensity interval training, you can achieve the reset. It takes longer for some, but it balances out your body.
Have you tried butter in your coffee? Me either, but it’s on my list of things to do (probably this weekend). This guy David Asprey came up with it and called it “Bulletproof Coffee”; it actually originated in Tibet. It apparently is like a meal replacement…since it provides a bunch of energy. The ingredients you ask…well, grass fed butter, coconut oil, and coffee…of course! I’ll let you know how that goes.
