Yo yo Happy Wednesday!
Here are a couple fantastic recipes from the 21 day sugar detox PLUS 5 reasons why I love homemade Paleo carnitas tacos.
Turkey bacon lettuce wraps. These pups are so easy. Romaine lettuce is best. I had some sliced turkey (you have no idea how hard it is to find sliced meat with no sugar!!). I had some leftover bacon- if there is such a thing and some avo. Wrap that shit up like a burrito, add a pickle (totally random but necessary) and some salsa. ENJOY!
Easy Crock Pot Carnitas:
4lb pork butt
1 quart organic chicken broth (read the ingredients here! they’ll sneak nasty stuff in on you!)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp clove
1 tsp corriander
2 bay leaves
4 hot dried chilies
water to cover
6 leaves romaine lettuce
Radishes (I like to soak mine in jalapeno juice for about 20 minutes
Place all the ingredients in the crockpot and cook on medium for 8 hours. When you’re getting close to eat time, preheat the oven to broil. Place the pork in a large bowl and shred with 2 forks. Lay the shredded pork out on a baking dish and spoon the fat from the crock pot over the top. This gives it the amazing crunchy texture. Broil for about 10 minutes. Place the pork on washed and dried lettuce and add all of your extras. Fold the lettuce like a taco, tilt head and enjoy!
5 Reasons Why I Love Homemade Paleo Carnitas Tacos:

- Absolutely delicious and savory- pure culinary satisfaction
- Minimal ingredients- get weird with some spices, there are no rules!
- Messy as shit during consumption- extra napkins required
- Building your lettuce taco is fun and customizable for the whole fam!
