Spicy Pineapple Chilli

Pineapple and chili? Sounds interesting, but tastes delicious. I first made this recipe from Civilized Caveman Cooking Creations when I was still pregnant. The idea was that I would make some food, and freeze it in individual portions so that once I delivered, I’d have absolutely no excuse to eat from a window. I was trying to plan ahead and set myself up for success. Here’s the problem….this stuff is delicious. And, despite my constant, never ending morning sickness, I could keep this down. So, I’d make a big batch, freeze the portions and eat them. I seriously did this like three or four times before giving birth. I did end up with few portions by the time I gave birth, but not nearly as many as I should have had…..I cooked mine in the crockpot though, and used ground bison instead of ground beef. Bison is higher in protein, Omega-3s, iron and B-12 than beef, is lower in calories, and is more likely to be grass fed, and free from growth hormones and other crap. It can be pricy at a grocery or health food store, but we’ve found it at Costco and Sam’s Club priced really reasonably, especially when compared to grass fed-beef. I also used my madolin slicer to save time chopping all of the ingredients, and while I’m not sure if the plastic emits any crazy chemicals into your food as it cooks (they say it’s perfectly safe), I used a crockpot liner to make cleanup easy. It freezes beautifully as well, so I always try and freeze a few portions so that I  always have a healthy option in the freezer just in case my day is crazy or unexpected guests show up. This dish has also been a hit with our Paleo and non-Paleo friends as well. 🙂

  • Salads are my favorite lunch.

  • I’ve been starting my mornings by adding two scoops of collagen to my coffee every morning. It has tons of body and beauty benefits. ☕️☕️☕️
  • Real talk: my kids are one today. They had the house trashed by 8 this morning. Luckily for me, these Blueberry Crumb Bars from @lexiscleankitchen just came out of the oven.
So, I’m going to sit on my backside on the couch and enjoy a slice while those little monsters clean their room. 😉And I don’t feel the least bit of guilt about it.
  • Usually, the tiny humans are the only things I can keep alive but I’m doing pretty well with the container garden this year. 🎉
  • I stole this little gem from @belleandbell. In case someone else needs to read it. 😉
  • Apparently purple bell peppers exist! I was excited when my husband found this plant at @homedepot, and I’m even more excited that I haven’t killed it yet! 🎉 This will be a great way to help us eat the rainbow!
  • “I want to be strong like my mom.” That’s what my oldest told her gymnastics coach on the first day of lessons. Working out is as much for them as it for me. It makes me stronger, healthier, more patient, more energetic. It sets the right example for them. They see what a body is capable of. They see that women are strong. They see what hard work looks like. Yes, I do it for me, but I do it for them, too, and apparently, they are getting it. 🏋🏼‍♀️🤸‍♂️
  • I wanted salad for dinner tonight, so I made salmon burgers, topped with a mango salsa. I had mine on a pile of arugula and spinach and the rest of the family had theirs on buns. 😉Win-win
  • Woo-hoo!
  • Props to all of those ladies that can workout and still look cute. I am not one of them. 😂🤣Also, @erinoprea might be trying to kill me with her do anywhere workouts. 😂🤣😂🤣You should give them a try.
  • Finally some sunshine 🌞
