Ode to the Egg

21 May

So I fell off the map again for two weeks – what you want to do about it? It’s a blog, not a job. I went on vacation. Sort of.

I was playing with Porsches.

Paleo Crockpot Breakfast Pie

Do you know what Paleo is? It’s short for the Paleolithic diet, which is based on the foods humans ate during the Paleolithic Era (think cavemen). It focuses on naturally raised proteins, vegetables, fruits and nuts (think hunter-gatherer) and eliminates grains, starches, processed sugars and oils (think all of your favorite foods).
