Speedy Chicken Broth

It's finally cooling down and I am starting to crave chicken broth.
Instead of waiting 6+ hours to prepared using a slow, I switched to making it in the Instant Pot on the pressure cooker option. Time saved and so easy.

I start by gathering chicken leftovers over a couple of days (usually takes my family about 3).
I empty all the leftovers into the pot, fill about 3/4 with water.
1 tsp Real Salt (the salt used in Jerky Chews)
1 tbls Apple Cider Vineger
A few stalks of celery cut into 3-4 pieces each
3 carrots cut into large pieces
Onion cut in large pieces
A few cloves of garlic whole and unpeeled
A bit of parsley and dill

I put the Instant Pot on high pressure for 2 hours, then let it stand closed for about 30 min before I let the steam out.

Perfect healthy and delicious bone broth!

Easy Paleo Tortillas from SEP

I usually don't indulge in Paleofied food but once in a while I spoil my family. Recently I tried a recipe from Stupid Easy Paleo. I made the sweetened version and added the vanilla extract, I also doubled the recipe as my family devours these crepes/tortillas.

I always recommend trying The 21-Day Sugar Detox to really understand what impact sugar has on the body and how to make a change for the better in your life.
"Perhaps it has nothing to do with will, and a lot to do with biochemistry," she says. Just as scientists in the last century showed there was a link between smoking and lung cancer, Dus thinks she can find a link between an early exposure to a diet high in sugar and obesity."
