Hey y’all! Are you ready for the next recipe in my Fed For Real series?
As a reminder, every Thursday I’ll be posting a calorie-appropriate, macro-balanced recipe on my blog that’ll help inspire you to eat enough at every meal.
I have a few higher fat, moderate carb recipes in the line-up for the next couple of weeks. But soon I’m also going to share higher carb options so you can experiment with a high carb, real food diet.
It’s generally how I eat, and I really don’t think there are enough good resources on that topic. (I hope to become that resource this year! Stay tuned!)
Let me know in the comments below what you want to learn from me about higher carb, real food/Paleo eating!
Enjoy this delicious stew and stay warm!
