21 Day Fix Approved Slow Cooker Carnitas


Servings: 4-6
3 ½ - 4 pound boneless pork butt/shoulder, cut into six equal pieces
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon cumin
8 cloves garlic, crushed
1 medium onion, quartered
3 bay leaves
1 lime, juiced
1 large orange, juiced (save the spent halves)
Optional Toppings
Tortillas/taco shells
Black beans
Sour cream


1. In a slow cooker, add cut pork, salt, pepper, oregano, cumin, garlic, onion, bay leaves, and lime juice. Juice the orange and add it to the cooker as well. Mix together until the meat is well-coated.
2. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours, or until the meat pulls apart easily.
3. Remove the pork and transfer to a foil-lined baking sheet. Shred the pork and spread across the baking sheet in a single layer.
4. Pour about 1 cup of the liquid remaining in the slow cooker over the shredded pork. Broil for 5-10 minutes until the meat browns and crisps along the edges.
5. Serve immediately. Great as a filling in tacos, burritos, salads, or nachos!
6. Enjoy!

Your Children Will Become Who You Are

Oh man - nothing like having a staredown with a mini version of yourself to point out your weaknesses as a person, am i right?

I pretty much daily think of ways that I could be BETTER. But I am human and I am flawed. 

When it comes to setting examples for my own kids I've had to think of what is important - no REALLY important- to me and decided to kind of focus on those few things and let everything else go.

My kids won't be fashion plates.
They won't be active in every after school activity.
They won't be allowed to do and watch things that I don't think are appropriate for them - even if its the 'cool thing' to do.

But they will be healthy.
They will know all about Jesus Christ.
And they will know that their perfectly IMPERFECT Mom loves them more than anything in the world!

How to Make a Healthy Smoothie

How to make a healthy smoothie! I've been making smoothies forever - since 2012 when I started making them for my then 'picky toddler' who is now a world-class eater eight year old! No, seriously - she will try anything! Haha!

Because I've experimented with a  lot of different smoothies, creating a lot of my own recipes along the way - I've been able to come up with a pretty standard baseline to create a yummy smoothie.

3 Cups of Fresh or frozen fruit
2 Cups of Juice or Almond Milk
1 Cup of Yogurt, Ice, Frozen Yogurt, etc to make it thick and creamy!

It tastes great everytime! Once you get the basics down its pretty easy to customize it and add in extras.

I hope this chart that I made helps you whip up a quick, healthy breakfast or snack and get out the door.
