Easy Bacon Brussel Sprouts

Serves 2

1 small package of Brussel Sprouts or just enough for two people!

4 slices of slab bacon

Place bacon in large frying pan and cook until crispy

While bacon is cooking, wash Brussel sprouts, cut bottoms off, and cut into halves

Remove cooked bacon and place on a paper towel 
Remove bacon grease leaving just enough to cover the bottom of the pan

Cook Brussel sprouts in leftover bacon grease until tender

Remove Brussel sprouts from pan and mix with the bacon you have torn into bits!

Eat up!

There is no need for salt or pepper in my book. But feel free to experiment with spices on your own!

6 Months Post Baby!

6 Months Post Baby!

6 months have gone by in what feels like a blink of an eye and I couldn't be happier.  My baby is rolling around, laughing, coo'ing, and even getting ready to crawl.  He is certainly a handful but definitely brings a lot of joy to my every day life.

It has been 6 months of work but my clothes are starting to fit again!  WooHoo!!!  The downside is that most of my tops aren't baby friendly.  They are either silk or are not a top I can breastfeed easily in.  And, even though summer is starting to come to a close, my shorts are fitting and I have been rocking them!  My shoes are another story...  I am sorry to say that it is true what they say about pregnancy and feet.

On to food - the important stuff right?

I am still working my way back to Paleo and would definitely say I am about 80% of the way there.  I could easily berate myself every single time I am not strict paleo but why?  Being Paleo is about changing your lifestyle and enjoying it.  And besides, being a Mommy means positive food associations and experiences!

Currently, I know exactly where I am not paleo and am working on it day by day and week by week but food is not my only focus.  This is not to say I am totally giving up.  OF COURSE NOT!  If I did that, I would not be able to be the best mom I could be.  What you put in your body really effects how you feel and what you are able to do.  So, no excuses from me here!  Just a happy Momma who is doing her best to get back in the kitchen and cook paleo and primal friendly yummy meals for everyone to enjoy!
