I can never think of creative titles…

Well that was a great title, huh? Yeah, creative juices are really flowin’ tonight!

Does that look gross? Good, that’s what I was going for.

Clearly my photo abilities do not cross over from black and white film photography!

Oh well, you all get to enjoy it anyway 🙂

I call that glorious picture dinner. Pulled pork and sautéed kale.

I love the crock pot. I mean, like, I am in love with it. It is the best invention EVER. Yes, EVER! I use it at least once a week. I make pulled chicken so I can throw it in the fridge and have it for salads during the week, I make pulled pork, and other fun things.

Anyway, pulled pork is super easy! There are tons of recipes out there, this one is very basic. I take a chunk of pork (I don’t know cuts, it is the big hunk of a chunk one) and throw it in the pot. I put sage, rosemary, basil, black pepper, and salt on it and add about 1/4 cup of water. Let it go on low for 6-8 hours. Make sure you check it so it doesn’t get over done and dried out (I did that today :(, so not my best pulled pork ever)!

Then when it is done, pull it out and on a plate use two forks to shred it. Then eat it! 🙂

I love kale now, too. I’m starting to get sick of it because I’ve been eating it a lot. I sauté it up in a pan with olive oil. When it is done I add some sea salt and lots of nutritional yeast.

Nutritional yeast is great! It gets me some extra protein and has lots of B vitamins! It is awesome for anyone, really, not just if you have Lyme. It helps me get my nutrients since I have a tough time absorbing all of them because of the destruction Lyme has caused to my intestinal system.

Plus, it adds some extra cheesy flavor to the kale!

anddddd another gross photo for you to end this post 🙂Image

Author: Lemons 'n Lyme

So, my name is Victoria. I was recently diagnosed with chronic/long-term Lyme Disease. It has been one of the biggest reliefs of my life. I finally have an answer for all the pain I've been in for years. I'm 20. I love to bake and cook. I created this blog to 1) chronicle my recovery 2) share my recipes. My recipes are geared to those with Lyme in terms of nutrition and anti-inflammatory, etc. My research has shown that eating a paleo/gluten-free/low-carb diet is best for those with Lyme, and although I try to stick with this I fail horribly at times. Follow along and feel free to contact me! :)
