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. 🙂

  • Me: I have so many things to do this week. 
Also Me: Why don’t I made homemade sun butter cups for the PTO bake sale this week....🤦🏼‍♀️
The recipe is from @daniellewalker
  • #momhack I usually keep a veggie tray in my fridge. The kids pick out what goes in it (this week, they wanted some fruit in there too). Then, when they ask me a snack for the 10 millionth time in a day, I tell them to pull out the veggie tray. Sometimes, I load the center up with cheese cubes, too. It’s easy and healthy. I prep it once and reload it as needed throughout the week.

  • Stomach bugs, head colds, sore throats, ear infections, and flu 😷 have all invaded our house in the past few weeks. Most days, I haven’t even hit my step goal, let alone my workout goals. But that’s part of the process too. Knowing when to rest is so important, and I still struggle with it. Today, I was able to get back to my workouts. I did two of the equipment free workouts from my latest blogpost. 10 second sprint intervals and the squats-pushups-pull-ups workout.
  • I’m a little, okay, a lot slow to the podcast thing. So far, the @kidsbiblestories podcast is a nightly family routine. (My kids LOVE it). Today, I’ve started listening to the Rise podcast by @msrachelhollis. Who else listens to podcasts? I’d love some recommendations
