Paleo and Crossfitter since 2010. Studying to become a nurse, hopefully western medicine will see some big changes or I can do my part. If I continue my schooling to the highest degree I can join the Paleo physician's network and this is a long term goal of mine. :)

    This was delicious! Instead of cinnamon & nutmeg I spiced it up with some creole seasoning. Yum!!

    I added a bit of applesauce at the end to sweeten it up, and I was amazing
