  1. Another great post. My weeks always go better when I plan meals ahead and only go to the store once! Do you have a bone broth recipe you would recommend? I just made my first batch... I followed a recipe and can see myself using it while cooking but I am not sure I can drink it straight which leads me to think maybe I didn't do it quite right. If you are willing to share a recipe you like I would greatly appreciate it. Feel free to email me directly if you would like! Thanks again. -Megan bolermegan@gmail.com

    1. Hi Megan! Thanks for reading. I also use the Balanced Bites/Practical Paleo recipe that Colleen pointed you to above. However, I let mine cook for 2 or even 3 days & I do not take the fat layer off the top. Here's the thing about drinking bone broth . . . it takes getting used to. It is an unusual flavor & consistency. You will get better at it over time though & the flavor will become delicious. In the beginning my batches were not all the yummy either. Remember, it is full of healing & lots of minerals. My nutritionist even told me that I did not need to take any mineral supplements if I drank bone broth every day. Good luck!

  2. I am just starting to figure out how much help the prepping step is! One tip I have to add that is helpful while you are cooking: I keep a trash bowl handy (most often lined with a left over produce bag) for all my scraps and wrappers and then I only make one trip across the kitchen to the trash instead of 20. It also keeps it out of the way and tidy!!

    Some awesome tips, I use the crock pot alot but I never think to double prep! My daughter asked me the other day why we don't ever go down the aisles in the Grocery Store, I had to stop and think why.. now I have my answer for her! I am totally going to plan my meals for the week on Sunday, I think it will have a significant impact on my budget too, as I will only have the foods in the house that I need for the week instead of stocking up on stuff for those nights when I can't fathom what to cook!

    Awesome Post! Thank you!

      Thanks for reading Emma! I am so glad this was helpful! We are on our way to getting the right flow figured out for you.

    I started 4 months ago when I was in a VERY bad place and desperate. For the first time, I actually asked for help from my husband and he easily obliged, given my health. On the strict AIP, I have improved enough to take over (not enough to say I am well--still tinkering and think other issues are at play), though I am on leave from work for a few months, which makes it somewhat easier. I still need to work on time management. I cooked for a family of five for 28 years before they all left and this is the most time I have ever spent in the kitchen. I will implement some of your suggestions! (BTW: I am not sure how I could have done this without you, Mickey T., Sarah and Chris K.--thank you!)
