Let the cooking begin!!! Jenny and I have really focused these segments on a single meal and we’ve had some requests for an entire days worth of food.  We thought this was a great idea and since we are so both super busy we decided to center this adventure around one key ingredient…bc we know you all are busy too!  Today the key ingredient was pulled pork!!!

We wanted to think of something that we could repurpose into three different enough meals that you don’t want to hurl yourself off of a balcony if you have to eat it one more time!  So here is the recipe: Combine all of these ingredients into a slow cooker and cook on low for 12 hours.

Using this as our base we decided I would tackle breakfast.  I made a spicy bbq scramble.

I took about a cup of the pulled pork and heated it over medium heat with two handfuls of spinach, 1 small container of pico and half of a bag of broccoli and three eggs. Stir mixture and cook for about 10 minutes!  Add hot sauce, lime juice and cilantro to taste!

I ate it for breakfast this morning and it was sooooo yummy!

Jenny and I both collaborated on lunch!!!  We decided to do pulled pork lettuce boats with cole slaw and sweet potato chips!  Yum right!?

We had to make our own paleo mayo for the cole slaw which was an experience!!!

Then we mixed it with the other ingredients to make a yummy classic bbq style cole slaw!

Then onto the Sweet potato fries…

These are a total staple…I make this at least once a week!

4 medium sweet potatoes sliced and coated in sesame oil with kosher salt and black pepper to taste, roost on 425 for 20 minutes.  Then in a romaine lettuce boat we put a healthy scoop of pulled pork, a healthy scoop of cole slaw and some sweet potato chips on the side!

Then for dinner Jenny made some zucchini fries…we were both ready for something new and wanted a more traditional but healthy bbq plate with veggies!

And look at all this yum!

We made a mess…

But it was totally worth it and now we both have two days worth of 3 meals a day!!!  What a relief!
