Paleo Recipes

In February 2013, I transitioned to a Paleo diet through the Whole 30 plan!

Carnitas & Haricot Verts

This is one of my most favorite meals and it’s all because of fat and flavor. I make a big pan of my favorite pork carnitas and each time, I find more ways to use them. I was late coming home last night and needed something quick. I already had the carnitas in the fridge. …
