AIP MEAL PREP: TUNA & SHREDDED CABBAGE SALAD

Meal prepping was hard for me to get the hang of at first. I don’t particularly like taking the time to plan meals for the entire week, especially because available produce is unpredictable here. I typically go to the market with a loose idea of […]

Bree and I got together and made the best Valentine themed beet salad! We used Kalettes (the cutest little cross between kale and brussels sprouts) and blood oranges. This is a pretty straightforward recipe, so I’m not going to go into too much detail… Just […]
