Yawwwwwwwwwwwn face. Morning. Happy Friday the 13th – ek. Hope everyone has had a nice week and are gearing up for the weekend! This week has been great! Whether has been awesome, been getting some walk and workouts in outside - life is pretty good.Currently on day 13 of Paleo and no coffee. Wowza. How is everyone else doing? Biggest struggle? Ours has definitely been the food prep. I didn't consider myself a lazy person, but it really does take a lot of effort to get this stuff created, especially to taste good! My biggest recommendation is definitely to do a croak pot meal/week. I will place a recipe below:)
Also my little anti-coffee adventure has been good. I think it was great to cut it out for a bit. I was up to 3 cups a day. I don't think coffee is bad for you (one cup/day preferable organic...) but I was up to 3-4 (Americanos even, but it's my job!). Personally I think that is up to the individual. If you are super stressed out, can't sleep, feel drained during the day and having A LOT of coffee, you may have some adrenal fatigue action going on and it may be good to cut it out. If you a happy bee and have one (maybe 2 some days) in the am, your probably fine. This is the good coffee tho - non of those whip cream jazzy drinks, those are toxic.
Here is this weekend homework:
4 rounds: 50 squats Run 400m, rest 2 min.

Recipes of the Week:
Overnight Crock Pot pulled Pork - From Paleotable.com
Pork Butt Roast- 7 1/2 pounds (make sure it will fit in your crock pot)
Water - 1 cup
Onion - 1, sliced
Liquad Smoke - 1 tsp
Sea salt- to taste
Fresh Ground Pepper - to taste
- Season pork generously with salt and pepper on all sides.
- Place pork roast in the crock pot with the fat side up.
- Scatter onions over pork.
- Combine water and liquid smoke, if using. Pour liquid into crock pot.
- In the evening, start the crock pot and cook on low for 12 hours. My crock pot only goes up to 10 hours, so I reset it in the morning to add the additional time. NOTE: If you use a smaller pork roast, adjust your cook time down accordingly.
- Turn the crock pot off. Let pork cool slightly, then transfer covered crock pot dish into the refrigerator. Alternatively, remove the pork from the crock pot and wrap it tightly in foil, then place it in the refrigerator for the day. Reserve some of the juices to use during rewarming.
- Prior to eating, discard bones and fat. NOTE: It should be really easy to lift off the layer of fat with your fingers and pick through the rest of the bones and chunks of fat.
- Transfer pork chunks to a large bowl and use your hands or two forks to shred the pork. Add a little of the reserved juices, if desired. Rewarm in the microwave or over low heat on the stovetop.
- Serve with some tasty spagetti squash!
