Carnitas Street Tacos [Recipe]

Reason no.836 why I love #FlexibleEating: This recipe is for 4lbs of pork butt cooked in beef broth and seasoned with warm spices. I made these carnitas street tacos that were (no exaggeration) as good as the $50 plate from my all time favorite high end SoCal Mexican restaurant. Try them out and I promise, you and your team of minions will be fighting over who gets the leftovers!

A balanced diet is a taco in each hand, wouldn’t you agree?! ? To say I’m partial to the odd taco would be like saying Yogi Bear kinda likes picnic baskets, or Homer Simpson occasionally eats donuts.

Lemon, Kale & White Bean Soup [Recipe]

Beans are a fantastic way to add more fiber and protein to your diet. I might come from the land of baked beans on toast but beans are actually pretty versatile in the kitchen!

Soup is so easy to make in bulk and transport with you to work or reheat at home after a long day at the office.
